Clippers To Re-Sign Wesley Johnson

The Clippers plan to re-sign Wesley Johnson to a three-year, $18MM deal, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports. Johnson wisely elected for free agency last month.

Johnson would have earned $1,227,286 next season had he chose to opt in, but with the salary cap’s rise, he was able to cash in for much more. The move comes as no surprise, since team president and coach Doc Rivers has said that he wants to re-sign as many of the Clippers’ free agents as possible, and Johnson noted that he would prefer to remain in Los Angeles.

The Clippers also agreed to re-sign Austin Rivers on Saturday. Johnson, 28, appeared in 80 games for the Clippers in 2015/16, averaging 6.9 points, 3.1 rebounds and 0.6 assists in 20.8 minutes per outing with a shooting line of .404/.333/.652.

Clearly they are out of the running for Durant although I think that wasn’t even option anyway. I still say KD stays in OKC
