Not a Star Wars fan? Worry away then, because NBA free agency begins in less than 3 weeks and we still have no idea who will be leading our team next season.
Obviously, the odds weigh heavily in favor of the tandem of Paul and Griffin. The organization is committed to re-signing both for big wads of cash, but what if one (or both) are enticed to play for a championship elsewhere?
Several sports media outlets have stated that teams have expressed interest in both players. For Griffin, most notably Miami, Denver, and Oklahoma City. In Paul’s case, the main player has been San Antonio. And while most sources say it’s likely that the two don’t split up, the chance is still there.
There’s also the Clippers’ barren wing position. Paul Pierce retired, and Alan Anderson and Luc Mbah a Moute are both expected to opt out of their contracts. That leaves only Wesley Johnson, meaning the Clippers will most likely sign a few new forwards this summer.
