Just after the GOAT, Adrian Wojnarowski reported Blake Griffin was going to opt out of his contract to become a free agent. Chris Paul, the Los Angeles Clippers point guard told Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times he was also going to decline his player option on his contract and become a free agent this summer.
The 32 -year-old point guard is eligible for a five-year, $205 million contract. He will make $35 million the first season, $38 million the second, $41 million the third, $43 the fourth and $46 million his last year, when he turns 38-years-old.
If Blake Griffin decides to stay with the Clippers, he can sign for a 5-year, $175 million. His first year he would make $30 million, second, he would make $32, $35 million his third, $37 million in the fourth and $39 million his last year.
It is unclear if Paul will resign with the Clippers, he has lead the team to the postseason all the years he has been with the team, but cannot get pass the 2nd round. As for Griffin, he should take this contract from the Clippers. He is a player who has been injured too many times in his short period of time. With that being said, he should secure his money and play for an ok organization like the Clippers.
