Found May 21, 2013 on Beyond The Buzzer:
According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Los Angeles Clippers are reportedly interested in Pacers veteran forward, David West, who is set to be a free-agent this summer. The nine-year-veteran, who is currently averaging 15.5 points and 6.8 rebounds per game for the Pacers who are set to take on the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals Wednesday, played with Chris Paul in New Orleans for six seasons. The Pacers’ veteran leader openly loves his situation in Indiana, which certainly gives Indy justified cause for optimism when it comes to re-signing the 32-year-old this summer. Yet the whispers are already swirling that Chris Paul’s Los Angeles Clippers, in particular, are going to make a hard run at West in the offseason.    Indy will certainly have the ability to pay West more to convince its locker-room sage to stay…But you have to figure that the former Hornet — who rose to All-Star prominence playing alongside CP3 — is going to want to hear the details of a proposal pitching a reunion with his old point guard … as long as Paul himself, of course, decides to stay. If Paul re-signs with the Clips as most league insiders continue to expect, L.A. will be seeking to add the final piece or two to cement itself as a contender with some staying power.
