Paul wants Hornets to show urgency to win

By The Associated Press

Chris Paul says he isn't interested in waiting several more years for the New Orleans Hornets to become a title contender.

The 25-year-old guard says he loves New Orleans and holds his new coach, Monty Williams, in high regard. But he does want the Hornets to show their commitment to winning by upgrading the roster this summer.

Paul is in New Orleans this weekend for his CP3 Foundation's charity golf event, a children's basketball clinic and a music festival.

Paul is coming off knee surgery that sidelined him much of last season. He hasn't decided if he'll play for the U.S. national team at the world championships in Turkey in late August.
