Part of the deal is having Paul picking up his option. I like the idea. Gives the Clips 2 years with Paul and all those teams saving for 2012 will have passed. Good move on the Clip's management part. Besides, CP3 or D12 won't sign an extension now, they would lose way too much money - they have to wait to become a FA. It's a good gamble on the Clips' part IMO.
