Hornets president says Chris Paul to stay
Hornets president Hugh Weber said Saturday there is "no question" that Chris Paul will still be with New Orleans when next season begins.
Weber made the assurances a day after Paul, while hosting his CP3 Foundation golf outing, said that while he considers New Orleans his adopted hometown and loves the city, he would not be interested in remaining with the Hornets long-term if the club fails to demonstrate an immediate commitment to winning.
Weber said the Hornets will be active in free agency and will continue to consult Paul on roster moves, as they have been.
"We know what we need to do and Chris knows and has been collaborating with us on all the moves and changes we've had," Weber said while he and Paul attended a community relations event
to promote reading at the club's suburban New Orleans training headquarters.
