The J.R. Smith sweepstakes went down to the wire between the Knicks and Clippers, but New York ultimately won out, agreeing to a deal with Smith that could become official later today. Here's the latest on the Clips, as they move on to Plan B….
- Before Smith chose the Knicks, Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro told Smith in a text message that signing with Los Angeles would mean a spot in the starting lineup, according to John Canzano of the Oregonian.
- The Clippers will hold a free agent workout this afternoon, tweets Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld.
- Former Clipper Bobby Simmons will be among the players at today's workout, says Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports (via Twitter). Spears reported yesterday that Jermaine Taylor would also be working out for L.A.
