Chris Paul Says He Hopes To Stay In New Orleans For 'Many Years To Come'

New, comment

Chris Paul just finished meeting with Hornets team president Hugh Webber, general manager Dell Demps and head coach Monty Williams. After the meeting, he sent out this statement on his Twitter feed.

"The meeting went well.  It was great to get an opportunity to sit down with Coach Williams, President Weber and our new General Manager Dell Demps. I expressed my desire to win and I like what they said about the direction that they want to take the team.  I have been a Hornet my entire career and I hope to represent the city of New Orleans and state of Louisiana for many years to come."    

ESPN's Marc Stein, who has been on top of this story from the beginning, says that the meeting seems to have gone better than he expected.

Quick take: Would obviously be naïve to believe all is settled for Hornets now, but vibe out of CP3 meeting more positive than anticipated
