Chris Paul is angry with the Los Angeles Clippers' organization due to how he has been widely blamed for the dismissal of Vinny Del Negro, according to a source.

Paul will be a free agent and it is unclear if it will impact his decision, but the source said it could lead him to explore options elsewhere.

"He's angry right now and his anger is directed toward the Clippers organization," the source said. "Chris is a man of principle and if he feels like you've gone against his principles, it will affect how he feels about you. He's very agitated that his name has been put out there as the reason for Vinny's firing. He had nothing to do with it."

The Clippers can offer Paul a five-year, $108 million contract and it has been widely assumed that he would choose to re-sign.

The source said that Paul might be willing to accept a deal for less money due to the situation.

Donald Sterling implied in an interview with the Los Angeles Times that Paul and Blake Griffin were to blame for the decision to fire Del Negro.

Paul had refused to be involved in the Clippers' decision upon Del Negro.

"Chris made it abundantly clear to the Clippers that he did not want to be involved in any decision about Vinny's future," the source said. "And Blake had nothing to do with it either."

The Atlanta Hawks could be a contender to sign Paul if he considers leaving the Clippers. The Hawks could sign both Paul and Dwight Howard this offseason, though the latter has appeared resistant to the idea of playing in his hometown.

Man of principle? Give me a break. If he was afraid of the consequences, maybe he shouldn't have had him fired. You cant have it both ways.

Why do people think he got him fired though? Everyone who has seen more than a handful of Clippers games and knows something about how basketball is played in the NBA knows that VDN is still a bad coach, and the Clippers underperformed expectation wise. It was a guarantee he was going to get canned if he didnt make it out of the 1st round, and possibly even the 2nd round.

By reading stuff like the OP 100 times. Ownership hears/sees the same I assume.

You ask me Paul has decided to leave and is standing on principle (weakly, where there is none) as a primer to leaving

Agreed. That was my first thought when I read that. Sterling has given him a public and legitimate reason to leave now - and I'm using that word 'legitimate' loosely.
