Chris Paul has already spoken with Matt Barnes about staying with the Los Angeles Clippers.

"Chris and I have already been talking about it," Barnes said while speaking to reporters at the Clippers’ training facility on Saturday. "We talked about it on the plane last night. He's obviously the franchise player but we also talked about what I was thinking about doing. Without giving anything away, he was doing his job (in recruiting me)."

Paul and Barnes will be unrestricted free agents in July.

Paul refused to tip his hand when pressed for details about his plans.

"I don't know how this whole thing is going to play out," Paul said. "I'm going to pray about it. We'll see."
