Right now, the Atlanta Hawks practice in a no-frills gym inside Phillips Arena, not far from the arena’s main court. As practice facilities go, it’s outdated. No high-tech video room, hydrotherapy pools or high-end kitchen. No massage room or players’ lounge with pop-a-shot and HDTVs. Just one full-sized court. Some big-time college basketball programs have nicer practice facilities and more amenities. That’s about to change.

As expected, Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin, a five-time All-Star forward, has exercised the early termination option on his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent, league sources told The Vertical.
Griffin, 28, is a cornerstone player for the Clippers, a priority for them to re-sign this summer. Boston, Houston and Miami are among multiple possible free-agent destinations for Griffin, who’ll also consider returning to the Clippers.
