Future is not yet now for Clippers, Chris Paul

Bleary-eyed and still dazed by a season-ending defeat, the Clippers showed up at their practice facility Saturday morning, only hours after being eliminated in six games from the first round of the playoffs by the Memphis Grizzlies.
“It’s one of those things where it’s almost like we waited too late to hit,” guard Chris Paul said. “We came out aggressive last night and we were the guys not letting them knock us around and it’s almost too late, because we were getting a whistle almost every time down.”
And as for the future, Paul becomes a free agent on July 1. He’ll be the main priority for a franchise that had unprecedented success in 2012-13, but he wasn’t ready to look that far ahead yet.
“All season long I said it was something I’d address after the season and I really didn’t think about it all during the season,” Paul said. “And the season is not even 24 hours from being over. And I really haven’t thought about it.
“For me, the craziest thing is the season is over. I still haven’t gotten that wrapped around my brain. When I woke this morning Little Chris got in my bed and the first thing he said was ‘Daddy, why did you lose again?’
“We’ll see. I don’t know how this whole thing is going to go or play out.”
