Los Angeles Clippers Free Agents for the 2022 Offseason

Breaking down the LA Clippers players headed for free agency this summer, as well as those with player and team options for 2022-23.

The Los Angeles Clippers won five straight games and six out of seven to close their regular season, guaranteeing a shot at postseason ball through the NBA Play-in Tournament. Unfortunately for them, a five-point road loss to the surging Timberwolves and a four-point home defeat to the Pelicans closed the book on things.

For Ty Lue, Paul George, and the Clips, the offseason now arrives earlier than expected. And with that comes some important decisions in NBA free agency that will shape the seasons to come, ahead of the grand opening of the state-of-the-art Intuit Dome in 2024.

Check out Boardroom’s full breakdown of imminent Clippers free agents, as well as a snapshot of the team’s salary cap outlook as things currently stand.
