3 Teams Chris Paul Should Realistically Consider Signing With

The Chris Paul free agency bid has already begun, as the star point guard is expected to meet with four teams during the offseason - the San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Clippers, Denver Nuggets, and Houston Rockets. However, not all those teams seem like a good choice for Paul. He should actually just consider these three teams. 

3. Utah Jazz

Yes, the Utah Jazz. The team that beat his team should be on Chris Paul's list. Why? They have an up-and-coming star in Gordon Hayward and a DeAndre Jordan-esque young big man in Rudy Gobert, who would probably become an All-Star since Paul will make him an even better player. On top of all that, the Jazz have plenty of depth and are a rising team that is well coached. If Paul joins Utah, they instantly become a top-three team in the West and legitimate contenders. 

2. Los Angeles Clippers

The simplest thing Paul could do is remain with the Los Angeles Clippers and hope that Steve Ballmer and the rest of the front office, including newly-hired Jerry West, could improve the roster so they can compete at a higher level. If anything Paul can take a one-plus-one deal to become a free agent in 2018 again and try to lure LeBron James to his team, which has been a hot rumor of late. 

1. San Antonio Spurs

If Paul wants an instant winning situation, he would be wise to join the San Antonio Spurs. Just this season, the Spurs were a top-two Western Conference team. Imagine adding Paul to the mix to join Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge. The Spurs would have an incredible big three to go along with terrific role players and the best coach in the league. In fact, Gregg Popovich's system would extend Paul's career because the nine-time All-Star wouldn't have to spend too much energy on the offensive end to find quality shots.
