Clippers reject deal for Paul

Chris Paul isn’t coming to Los Angeles, at least not now.

General manager Neil Olshey said the Clippers rejected a proposed deal by the New Orleans Hornets for the All-Star guard because the team felt ”the cost was just too high.”

Whether the deal is altogether dead, though, remains to be seen.

Olshey declined to identify who the Clippers had offered in exchange for Paul but their package reportedly included center Chris Kaman, reserve guard Eric Bledsoe, forward Al-Farouq Aminu and their No. 1 pick in the 2012 NBA draft.

It’s the second time in five days that a deal moving Paul to Los Angeles fell apart. The Lakers were involved in the first deal.
