And Chris Paul isn’t coming to Los Angeles, at least not now. The Clippers on Monday rejected a proposed deal by the New Orleans Hornets for the All-Star guard because the team felt “the cost was just too high,” general manager Neil Olshey said. Whether the deal is altogether dead, though, remains to be seen. The Clippers later claimed five-time All-Star Chauncey Billups off waivers. The 35-year-old point guard was waived by the New York Knicks last weekend.
