    I think Rich Paul withhold the correct, information concerning the LA Clippers deal. If that isn't the truth, then why was Rich Paul fired?


    U tellin me these fools turned down 2years for $40mil to play in LA in the wake of a new clippers dynasty😂 nw you just lost 10mil & play for the sorry ahh knicks somethin ant right, piece of the puzzle missin🤷🏽‍♂️

    Marcus joining the clippers would've been a blessing to for the Lakers. The clippers wouldn't been able to sign Kawhi and Paul.

    LeBron James didn’t want him on the Clippers. LeBron is the puppet master of unclutch sports. Jalen cut the BS we know what happened.

    Maybe Paul TOLD Morris that he could get 40 mil but Morris wasn't actually OFFERED that kind of money.

    Yea, there is definitely something missing from this story. It was 41 over 3 years which is a bit more than 13 a year. For whatever reason Morris was convinced that he would get more elsewhere, meaning his market was misjudged. The Clippers then signed Mo Harkless as part of that trade that sent Jimmy Butler to Miami. Harkless got 42 over 4 years as Morris' replacement. They also signed Beverley to 40 for 3 years. The trade with OKC then clears the cap for PG and they sign Kawhi...Morris was supposed to be on the Clippers but maybe Rich Paul didn't want that to happen for whatever reason. Bottom line is there is definitely something that took place in all this time that led to Paul being fired.

    It wasn't 2 for $40 million, it was 3 years. That is not $20 million a year , it's a little over $13

    I know Jalen Rose is feeling stupid as 💩 with his comments, now that the truth has came out! Morris turned down the $40 million deal with the Clippers and reneged on the Spurs, although Rich had warned him
