Chris Paul is planning on re-signing with the Los Angeles Clippers in the offseason on a maximum contract and has final say on every move the team makes.
"If Chris wants Vinny [Del Negro], he'll be the coach," one source tied to the Clippers and Paul said. "If Chris wants [Kevin Garnett], they'll push harder for it."
The Clippers have become the NBA's best destination for older players willing to take less money for a chance at a title because of Paul and the team's chemistry.
Paul hasn't fully committed to a new deal with the Clippers, not wanting to lose leverage in putting a genuine contender around him.
