It could be tough for the Clippers to keep J.J. Redick and Luc Mbah a Moute, according to Bobby Marks of The Vertical.
Basically, it'll be tough to bring those two back after the Clippers agreed to deals with Jamal Crawford, Austin Rivers and Wesley Johnson last summer. Mbah a Moute is fully expected to opt out of his 2017-18 player option to make him an unrestricted free agent at age 30. LMAM had a positive year as a defender and he should be a target for several teams. May 27 - 1:12 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute is expected to opt out of his contract for the 2017-18 season.

He was slated to earn just $2.3 million next season, so it's an easy decison for LMAM as the 30-year-old veteran is looking to secure a long-term deal. Mbah a Moute is a good defender and locker room guy, but he's unlikely to make a fantasy impact anywhere he goes. In 22.3 minutes per game, he averaged 6.1 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.0 steals.
May 25 - 12:32 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute scored a playoff career-high 15 points in a Game 3 win over the Jazz on Friday, adding six rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

He may have to score more now that Blake Griffin is banged up. For what it's worth, Mbah a Moute only had a 1.7 usage rate bump when Griffin was off the court during the regular season. If you're going to use him for DFS, he'll need to make his money in non-scoring stats.
Apr 22 - 1:07 AM

Luc Mbah a Moute finished with 15 points, three assists, two rebounds and two steals over 24 minutes in Monday's 124-96 thrashing of the Rockets.

Mbah a Moute was sharp from the floor, misfiring on just two of his eight field-goal attempts while hitting each of his free throws. He has back-to-back double-digit point totals for the first time since Nov. 12-14 so don't get terribly excited about his fantasy prospects heading into the postseason.
Apr 11 - 1:26 AM

Luc Mbah a Moute had a solid game on Saturday vs. the Bulls, scoring 12 points on 5-of-6 shooting.

LMAM logged 30 minutes on the night, adding three rebounds, one assist and one steal. He's strictly a defender in Los Angeles and eats last on offense, so nights like these will be very rare. He's averaging 7.6 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals over his last five games, so fantasy owners can do a lot better.
Mar 4 - 11:08 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute was back in the starting lineup for Wednesday's road victory, finishing with two points, two rebounds and two steals in 26 minutes.

Mbah a Moute starts for his defense, plain and simple, and he hasn't been a reliable fantasy contributor at any point this season. No matter where he begins games, he belongs on the wire.
Feb 9 - 1:41 AM

Luc Mbah a Moute will start against the Knicks on Wednesday.

He'll likely be guarding Carmelo Anthony for all of his minutes. Mbah a Moute doesn't have much value in fantasy even if he started consistently.
Feb 8 - 8:12 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute moved to the bench against the Suns on Wednesday with eight points, two rebounds, one steal and one block in 13 minutes.

The Clippers went small with their three-guard lineup and it worked. Coach Doc Rivers has really been going with more matchup-based lineups, but it doesn't really matter in fantasy for Mbah a Moute. Keep him on the wire. LMAM will likely be starting against Kevin Durant on Thursday.
Feb 2 - 1:57 AM

Luc Mbah a Moute hit 4-of-5 shots and a 3-pointer for 12 points, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and a season-high four blocks in Monday's 115-105 win over the Hawks.

His previous season high in blocks was two and his seven boards tied his season high in rebounds. He hadn't blocked a shot in his previous five games and rarely scores in double figures, or has games like the one he had tonight. Leave him on waivers.
Jan 23 - 10:31 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) returned from a two-game stint on the sidelines on Sunday, and moved back into the starting lineup tallying six points, one board, one steal and one turnover in 17 minutes.

With Mbah a Moute back in action, Austin Rivers returned to the bench where he put up 13 points, two assists, two steals, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 25 minutes. Neither of these guys are worth a roster spot in most formats.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 06:27:00 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) will play Sunday vs. the Wizards.

He'll be returning from a two-game stint on the sidelines, and head coach Doc Rivers confirmed that he would start, meaning that Austin Rivers will be moving back to the bench. Mbah a Moute has played some solid defense this season, but he's not a viable fantasy target in any settings, nor is Rivers.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 02:16:00 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute (bruised right shoulder) has been upgraded to questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Wizards.

The Clippers previously ruled him out, so this is a surprise. If LMAM is able to play, his return will take a handful of minutes away from Austin Rivers and likely push him back to the bench. LMAM is averaging 6.0 points and 2.3 rebounds per game this season.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 11:07:00 AM

Luc Mbah a Moute (bruised right shoulder) will not play Sunday vs. the Wizards.

This will be the third straight game Mbah a Moute has missed due to the shoulder ailment. The Clippers have used a three-guard starting lineup of Chris Paul, J.J. Redick and Austin Rivers in each of the previous two games Mbah a Moute has missed.
Sat, Dec 17, 2016 01:12:00 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) will not play Friday vs. Miami

Not a surprise, as Mbah a Moute had been doubtful to play. This will be his second straight missed game. The Clippers will start three guards (Chris Paul, J.J. Redick and Austin Rivers) again on Friday. Rivers had a monster game (25 points, seven 3-pointers, four boards) starting in place of Mbah a Moute on Wednesday, but is unlikely to match those numbers two games in a row.

Coach Doc Rivers told reporters that it is unlikely that Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) will play on Friday vs. Orlando.

Mbah a Moute sat out practice Thursday with his right shoulder wrapped in ice. He was injured in Monday’s game against Portland. If Mbah a Moute doesn't play, the Clippers are expected to stick with their three-guard starting lineup of Chris Paul, J.J. Redick and Austin Rivers
