Chris Paul Is Headed to San Antonio

Free agency has started in the NBA with the draft now behind us. Free-agent point guard Chris Paul is signing a one-year contract worth more than $11 million, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal comes shortly after the Golden State Warriors waived Paul on Sunday when his $30 million salary for the 2024-25 season was set to become guaranteed. Not surprisingly, no one was willing to trade that contract for the production he put up this season.

Paul, who played 58 games primarily off the bench for the Warriors, averaged 9.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 6.8 assists while shooting 44.1 percent from the floor.

Signing Paul is a smart move by the Spurs. As they continue to build around star center and Rookie of the Year Victor Wembanyama, getting a veteran like Paul in the building is big for the youngest team in the NBA.

Wembanyama and Paul could be a fun duo and make the Spurs better than they have been in the past couple of years. The Spurs haven't made the playoffs since 2019. Whaddingn of Paul doesn't make them title or playoff contenders, it is one step in the right direction. Look for Paul to help the Spurs get back to the playoffs in the future, but not probably this year.
