NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans Hornets general manager Dell Demps says he intends to talk to Chris Paul about a contract extension when rules allow for it this summer and that he believes the franchise has regained the All-Star point guard’s confidence.
Demps and Williams say the plan this offseason is to look for ways to build a title contender around Paul, who averaged 22 points, 11.5 assists and 6.7 rebounds in a first-round playoff loss to the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers.
Demps says that plan includes bringing back power forwards David West, who can opt out of his contract, and Carl Landry, who is a free agent.
