Chris Paul's tweet this morning said it all:

It was widely known that Paul was part of the machinery that brought head coach Doc Rivers to Los Angeles. With the Clippers successful in acquiring Rivers, it was a foregone conclusion Paul would re-sign with the Clippers.

The deal is reported to be the maximum of five years worth $108.5 million according to Broderick Turner of the LA Times. Teams can talk with free agents beginning today but deals cannot be signed and made official until July 10.
