Chris Paul leaving the Los Angeles Clippers?

The Los Angeles Clippers should be concerned over the possibility of Chris Paul defecting to another team heading into free agency.

Four teams will make compelling presentations to Paul that could potentially sway him into joining their franchise. These squads will showcase different perks during the course of their courtship, but none more important to Paul than winning.

The Clippers’ first-round elimination in the 2013 playoffs by the Memphis Grizzlies left Paul a little bitter and dumbfounded. The Clippers’ leading assist man shared as much with ESPN LA’s Arash Markazi:

"I don't know. This right here was unacceptable," Paul said. "We lost in the first round to a good Memphis team but a team we were capable of beating. There are no moral victories ... I have nothing to do. This is unreal. We only played two weeks long than everyone else that didn't make the playoffs. That sucks. That stings."

Consequently, franchises competing for the services of Paul must have cap room to offer him a contract and sell him on their ability to compete for championships from the moment he signs on the dotted line.
