LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Paul can't recall the exact moment he knew that he wanted to stay with the Los Angeles Clippers. Once he decided, though, the free agent All-Star was quick to commit.

He signed a five-year deal worth nearly $108 million on Tuesday night, telling the Clippers he wanted to talk about it with the rest of the team's free agent signees on Wednesday.

Paul didn't want the spotlight to himself because he says, "There's no one person who is more important on the team."

Paul joined Matt Barnes and Ryan Hollins, who both re-signed, along with newly acquired Darren Collison, Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick, and new coach Doc Rivers at the team's training complex.

Paul described the scene as "one of the biggest days in franchise history."
