Offseason Salary Cap Digest: Los Angeles Clippers

Teams across the NBA will have scads of cap room this summer, but the Clippers almost certainly won’t be among them. They’re poised to enter the offseason with three max contracts and more than $77.7MM on the books against a projected $92MM cap, not counting cap holds for free agents they’d like to re-sign. The only realistic path to cap space involves the free agent departures of Jeff Green and either Jamal Crawford, Austin Rivers or both, and even then, the Clippers wouldn’t have nearly enough to compete for max-salary targets. Trades theoretically offer another way for the team to clear cap space, but coach/executive Doc Rivers doesn’t appear willing to trade his star trio of Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. See how L.A.’s cap situation looks for 2016/17 as Hoops Rumors continues its offseason salary cap digest series.
