It wasn’t surprising to hear C.J. Wilcox talk about playing with point guard Chris Paul after the Clippers on Thursday drafted him with the No. 28 pick in the first round.
“Everyone watches Chris Paul; he’s the best point guard in the game,” said Wilcox, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard out of University of Washington. “He came and worked out with us up in Agoura Hills one time and it was good to see him in person, good to go against him and compete against him.
“I think that helped me get a sense of how he plays in person. I’m really excited. I know he’s really good at finding guys and getting in good positions to succeed. I think that’s going to help me in the long run.”
