NY Times: Clips spoke with Paul

"Clippers officials talked to Paul for 90 minutes last week, with the Hornets’ permission. People with knowledge of the Clippers’ plans said Paul was asked if he would forgo his opt-out next summer if he was not ready to commit to an extension. Paul answered that he would consider it, if the core Clippers remained." (Emphasis mine) The references to Clippers are near the bottom of the article - I don't think I have seen these details reported anywhere else. And as for the last clause in bold, I can't see how Gordon could not be considered part of the core. Thus, it stands to reason that while it may be true that the Hornets want him in NO, Paul wants him to stay in LA. Thus, the conundrum for NO is that they want as much as possible from the Clips, but not so much that Paul is no longer willing to pick up his option (which in turn lessens the amount that the Clips would be willing to trade). My prediction is that Gordon stays and the Minny pick goes.
