Oct 20, 2017 5:36 PM

Chris Paul talked about the end of his tenure with the Los Angeles Clippers in a series with ESPN.

“Like, a lot of people see wins and losses and that stuff like that, but it’s the culture of our team,” Paul said.

“I was like, if you ain’t trying to contend with the Warriors, then what are doing? The Warriors haven’t lost in the playoffs. Like, if you’re not trying to contend with them, then what are you doing?”

Clippers Didn't Shop DeAndre Jordan In Offseason

Oct 13, 2017 9:37 AM

The Los Angeles Clippers listened to trade offers for DeAndre Jordan this offseason, but they didn't shop him around the league.

Jordan can become a free agent in 2018 and he has discussed an extension with the Clippers. The Clippers could have reservations about letting Jordan become a free agent where he can earn $35 million in Year 1 of a new deal compared to $27 million on an extension.

If the Clippers struggle this season, they could look to trade Jordan.

Jordan signed an offer sheet with the Golden State Warriors in free agency in 2011 that was matched by the Clippers, and he also agreed to a deal in 2015 with the Dallas Mavericks before changing his mind to remain with the Clippers.

DeAndre Jordan, Clippers Discussing Contract Extension

Sep 30, 2017 10:15 PM

DeAndre Jordan and the Los Angeles Clippers have held several discussions on a contract extension.

While the two sides have discussed an extension, no contract figures have been broached.

“We’ve had discussions, but obviously nothing has gotten done,” Jordan said. “So, we’ll see what happens.”

Jordan has a player option for the 2018-19 season that will pay him $24.1 million. Jordan could re-sign with the Clippers in the summer for as much as $207 million over five years.

Jordan doesn’t have an agent, so he has been negotiating with the Clippers on his own.

Clippers Create New Courtside Seats Selling For $175k Per Season

Sep 7, 2017 10:21 AM

The Los Angeles Clippers are creating eight additional courtside space for the 17-18 season by breaking up their long scorers table. 

The Clippers aren't publicly disclosing the price, but a league source says they're asking for $175,000 a seat, which works out to $4,070 per game.

"It's extremely rare to have space like this open in any arena" Clippers president Gillian Zucker said. "What we did here was create new beachfront property."

The Golden State Warriors and New York Knicks have tickets that are more expensive.

"The seats can be seen on television, so it can be for someone who wants to be seen. It is, after all, Hollywood," Zucker said. "Companies, agencies or just a hard-core fan who wants to get closer."
