Chris Paul joins Victor Wembanyama at Spurs after Warriors waive off

At 39, Paul may not be the prolific scorer he once was, but his experience, playmaking skills, and leadership on the court make him a valuable addition to the Spurs' roster. Joining a young team centered around rising star Victor Wembanyama, Paul's presence is expected to mentor the next generation of talent in San Antonio.


With the Spurs aiming to blend seasoned veterans with promising young players, Chris Paul's arrival signals a strategic move by the organization. Coming off a season where he showcased his ability to control the game and contribute effectively despite reduced scoring output, Paul brings a wealth of knowledge and competitiveness to a team looking to solidify its position in the competitive Western Conference. 

Teaming up with established point guard Tre Jones and recent draft pick Stephon Castle, Paul's addition bolsters the Spurs' backcourt and provides a strong foundation for the team's continued development and pursuit of success in the NBA.

Chris Paul is a win-win for Spurs

Chris Paul's arrival in San Antonio marks a significant win-win situation for the Spurs organization. Despite not expected to be playoff contenders in 2025, the Spurs boast some of the best young talent in the NBA. 

With Paul's wealth of experience, high basketball IQ, and proven track record of nurturing young players into their full potential, he is poised to make a lasting impact on the team. From mentoring the likes of Victor Wembanyama, Stephon Castle, Jeremy Sochan, and Devin Vassell to guiding the recent draft picks, Paul's presence will undoubtedly accelerate the development of these budding stars. 


Especially with Castle, who aspires to elevate his game to become a lead ball-handler in the NBA, Paul's expertise in passing, ball-handling, and playmaking will be invaluable in refining Castle's skills, potentially leading him to reach elite levels akin to players like Devin Booker under Paul's tutelage.
