- Bi-Annual Exception – $3,623,000
Key Offseason Decisions
- Will JaMychal Green pick up his player option? Green’s PO is for $5M. In a normal year, he could probably get more than that, or least sign a longer deal as a free agent. Given the uncertainty of this season, and LA’s status as a contender, it’s likely Green opts in.
- Will the team keep Joakim Noah? Noah had little impact after joining the Clippers. He’s proven he can still play as a solid backup center. This one probably comes down to who the Clippers hire as a coach and his feelings on Noah’s chances to contribute.
Projected Team Salary
Things are pretty straight for the Clippers. Do they keep Joakim Noah at $2.7M? And will JaMychal Green opt in? The answer to both of those are probably yes. Then all eyes turn to a new deal for Montrezl Harrell, retaining Marcus Morris and filling out the rest of the bench with veterans. (@KeithSmithNBA)
