Doc Rivers would not get into specifics, other than to say his son is one of the players on the team he expects will “get deals this summer, and we’re hoping they’re here.” The salary cap is an issue. The Clippers — not including player options — have roughly $78 million in guaranteed contracts for 2016-17, when the cap is expected to rise to about $89 million. Jamal Crawford, Luc Mbah a Moute, Jeff Green, Pablo Prigioni and Jeff Ayers are free agents and Cole Aldrich and Wes Johnson have player options, so there are those considerations.
Storyline: Jamal Crawford Free Agency
Aldrich stopped drinking soda, pretty much the only thing he says he changed, and kept the workouts regimen. He joked that some guys swear by methods like “paleo” diets, but he still eats what he wants for the most part, he’s just smarter about it. “I loved a good Mountain Dew, but no more Mountain Dew for me,” Aldrich joked. His plan got him down to 250 pounds, one of the lightest weights he’s played at since entering the league, and something he knew he needed to do seeing how fast the pace was with the Clippers. Aldrich said the switch from the slower, more methodical triangle offense in New York to the quicker, freer style with the Clippers presented a challenge.
