Chris Paul will give the Spurs "serious consideration" in free agency, ESPN's Marc Stein reports. Paul has a player option for another year in his contract but he is expected to decline this summer and become a free agent.

Sources say Paul is very interested in considering the notion of him teaming up with Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and MVP finalist Kawhi Leonard, as he continues to his quest for a title. The Spurs, headed by Gregg Popovich, are consistently one of the best teams in the National Basketball Association and have one of the league's best players in Kawhi Leonard.

In Paul's six seasons with the Clippers, the team hasn't be able to pass the second round of the playoffs. Meanwhile, the four-year max that Paul is eligible to receive from the Spurs and other potential bidders tops out at an estimated $152 million.

However, the Clippers have been viewed as the strong favorite to re-sign the 32-year-old point guard, offering Paul a five-year deal worth an estimated $205 million.

But Paul's presence, and leadership, could give the Spurs the necessary tools to compete for a championship over the next few years.

The NBA free agency is still a month away but the hottest rumor that's been circulating around the league is the idea of Chris Paul joining forces with the San Antonio Spurs. They can offer him the most money and right now the Spurs don't have the cap space to get him.

The Spurs are in need of a new point guard with Tony Park aging and injured and Patty Mills set for free agency.

While it had been long-rumored that the L.A. Clippers' passing maestro could be in the crosshairs of the Spurs' front office, it now looks like the interest comes from both parties - making this a much more realistic scenario.
