Warriors’ Chris Paul on coming off the bench: ‘It’ll be a conversation when camp starts’

Anthony Slater: There’s been no discussion between Chris Paul and Steve Kerr about Paul coming off the bench. “It’ll be a conversation when camp starts. Me and Steve have talked, but that ain’t something where it’s, ‘What up, man? You starting or coming off the bench.” pic.twitter.com/JYSO9hcHqE

Chris Paul said he’s already linked up for a workout with his new teammate Steph Curry. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2023/07/09/new…1:40 AM

I’m laughing at the idea of the Warriors going with a small ball starting lineup of Steph, CP3, Klay, Wiggs and Draymond. The average age of that starting 5 is 33.4 years old, and average height is just over 6’4. I mean it’s something alright. #dubnation1:32 AM

Hmm, don’t love that Chris Paul got snappy in his first presser when asked about playing with guys in the second unit, saying there have been no conversations yet about him coming off the bench. Sir what you think gon’ happen, the Warriors are going to bench Steph?! #dubnation1:22 AM

When Chris Paul and Stephen Curry next step onto the court in October, they will do so as teammates instead of Western Conference rivals.
And the relationship they have developed off the court through the years can continue to flourish.

Chris Paul doesn’t seem to love the idea of coming off the bench for the Warriors. Here’s what that could mean for the franchise: sfchronicle.com/sports/warrior…1:03 AM

Super excited to cover Cp3 on a regular basis. Feel like he will make me get better at my job. Gotta ask thoughtful questions. Or he will let you know you didn’t lol.
Also, a hall of famer — one of those talents that you tell your kids and fam about. Going to be fun. – 12:54 AM

“It’ll be a conversation for us when camp starts.”
Chris Paul hasn’t come off the bench since Nov. 22, 2004 — the second game of his sophomore year in college — and he might not be ready to do so with the Warriors nbcsportsbayarea.com/nba/golden-sta…12:16 AM

CP3 compared Draymond to Kevin Garnett in the sense the every time they go to battle, it’s like they are about to fight.
I asked him about his relationship with him, Steph, and Klay: pic.twitter.com/dWb7YI1Yaq12:14 AM

A question was asked to Chris Paul presuming he was coming off the bench. His response:
“Uhhh, you coaching?”
CP3 made it clear any decisions about whether he will start is something the team will figure out later. Doesn’t sound like he expects to come off the bench. – 10:14 PM

The Chris Paul trade really was something…Jordan Poole, Ryan Rollins, Patrick Baldwin Jr., 2030 first round pick, 2027 second round pick and cash considerations…pretty much 2 recent and 2 future picks, along with Poole. Not high on Poole, but a no-brainer flier for D.C. – 7:44 PM

How is it moving to the head seat coaching the Warriors’ summer league team? What has worked for player development and what hasn’t? Why is Chris Paul so important for Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody?

More on this storyline

Paul said he hasn’t spoken to the Warriors or coach Steve Kerr about the intricacies of his new role, or whether he’ll even come off the bench, something he has never done in his 18-year NBA career. “At the end of the day, it’s basketball,” Paul said. “I’m going into a situation with a bunch of guys who’ve been playing together for a long time. I’m not as worried about it as everybody else is. … We’ll figure all of that stuff out at camp.” He continued: “You don’t have the answers right now. We’ll practice, and I’m sure there will be things I’ve got to learn about them, they’ve got to learn about me, but that’s the case with any team.” -via ESPN / July 10, 2023
