Barnes Betting On Paul Re-Signing With Clippers
Matt Barnes has discussed this offseason with Chris Paul and has gotten a sense that the Los Angeles Clippers' star will re-sign in free agency.
"Chris and I have seen each other a few times after the season and that's something we've discussed," Barnes said on Wednesday. "Not to really get into his business too much, but I think the Clippers are one of his of top teams to say the least and if I was betting guy I would say he would be back with the Clippers next year."
Barnes would like to return to the Clippers, but he is also looking for an increase in salary after signing a one-year contract worth the veteran's minimum last summer.
"I had a great season with the Clippers and my family is very comfortable here in L.A.," Barnes said. "So the Clippers are going to be one of my top choices, but we're looking for a pay increase."
