Here's a look at some news on the Clippers courtesy of SI.com's Sam Amick..
- Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro indicated that he feels strong support from team ownership as he enters the final year of his deal. However, Del Negro wouldn't disclose whether he and Donald Sterling have had conversations about a new deal yet.
- The question of whether Chris Paul is happy in Los Angeles will loom all year long as people discuss his impending free agency, but Amick writes that he is clearly content with the Clippers. Paul has said that having a hand in shaping the team is a huge plus for him and signed off on the acquisitions of Lamar Odom, Matt Barnes, and Willie Green.
- Odom is back on track mentally but it will take the forward some time to get into playing shape. However, it's not from a lack of trying as Del Negro confirmed that he hasn't missed a practice or slacked off at all in camp.
