Chris Paul    G  Clippers

 

 

Chris Paul has informed the Clippers he is declining his option to become an unrestricted free agent, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times. This has been expected for a long time as CP3 looks to get another long-term deal. Of course, there are the rumors of Paul looking to join the Spurs while there has also been some talk of him looking at the Rockets or Nuggets. Paul is past his prime at age 32, but his style of play should translate much longer than other point guards who rely so much on athleticism.

Lavoy Allen    F/C  Pacers

 

 

The Pacers have declined the $4 million team option on Lavoy Allen. It's not surprising as the Pacers get ready to rebuild. Allen showed he could play both big spots for the Pacers, but most teams may not want the 6'9" Allen as a backup big for next season. He's still likely to get some interest at age 28.

Blake Griffin    F  Clippers

 

 

Blake Griffin has opted out of the last year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. It's a fairly expected move for the former All-Star. Griffin can earn up to a five-year, $175 million deal with the Clippers, or he could get up to a four-year, $130 million offer with another team. There is some uncertainty with the Clippers now that all of their stars have rumors of being on other teams. Considering the Celtics didn't do anything yet, they're someone to watch.

Jarrett Allen    C  Nets

 

 

Coach Kenny Atkinson said the starting center position will be an "open competition." It'll likely be Jarrett Allen vs. Timofey Mozgov for the starting spot. Obviously the Nets aren't exactly going for it as they rebuild through the draft, so that should give Allen an advantage. At Texas, Allen's Longhorns were very slow with their 252nd-ranked pace in the nation, so that'll be an adjustment for him. Still, the Nets were demolished inside last year and Atkinson should be able how to use Allen's 7'5" wingspan on both ends. He's a sleeper to watch in deep fantasy leagues.
