Jamal Crawford would like to return to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Crawford is due to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, but would like to stay with the Clilppers. "I know my role, I respect my role, I respect my teammates," Crawford said. "I don’t like change, so I’m very, very comfortable here, and I’d love to stay here further. The 36-year-old is fresh off winning the Sixth Man of the Year award and will have similar fantasy value in 2016-17 if he's back with the Clippers.

Paul Pierce said he thinks he has another year left.

After the Clippers were knocked out, Pierce said he is about 50-50 to play next year. After playing 15 seasons in a row with the Celtics, Pierce has played for three different teams in three years. His minutes dropped to 18.1 per game last year and he would likely see even fewer minutes next year.

Mike Woodson has interviewed to become the next head coach of the Sacramento Kings.

Woodson isn't an early favorite for the job, but the Kings are casting a wide net in their search.

Vinny Del Negro has interviewed with Sacramento for the head coach position.

It's hard to see VDN becoming the next head coach for DeMarcus Cousins, but predictions about a franchise that can't even tell you its next move have become worthless.

Pablo Prigioni will "probably" retire this summer according to ESPN.

He will be 39 years old in just a few weeks, so this isn't really a surprise. Prigioni averaged just 13.9 minutes in 59 regular season appearances and was never a reliable fantasy option.

Paul Pierce said he is "50-50" on whether or not he will retire.

The Truth has two more years left on his deal with the Clippers, but he will be 39 years old in October and just had the worst season of his career by far. He averaged just 6.1 points, 2.7 boards and 1.0 assists in 18.1 minutes per game during the regular season, so he won't be a fantasy option next season if he decides to keep playing.

J.J. Redick scored 15 points in a 106-103 season-ending loss to the Blazers on Friday, adding one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer.

He surprisingly only had two shots from deep out of his 12 total field goal attempts. Redick's heel was a problem for him this series and it kept him down to 26 minutes in this game. It'll be interesting to see what the Clippers do this offseason, but Redick should still hold his mid-round value.

Austin Rivers needed 11 stitches after an Al-Farouq Aminu elbow to his face during a season-ending loss to the Blazers on Friday, finishing with 21 points, six rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He had four stitches above his eye and seven below it. Rivers made the offense go and the Clippers may have been blown out without him. He'll likely be getting more attention in free agency this summer with the Clippers as the favorites to sign him.
Apr 30 - 1:28 AM

Jeff Green got the start on Friday in a loss to the Blazers, finishing with 11 points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

He had a better chance to perform with the Clippers banged up in the last two. Green will head into free agency afters showing some promise with the Grizzlies after they lost Marc Gasol (foot). His fantasy value hinges on his destination perhaps more than any other player.
Apr 30 - 1:25 AM

Jamal Crawford scored a playoff career-high 32 points during a loss to the Blazers on Friday, adding one assist, three steals and three turnovers on 10-of-25 from the field.

He was up to his usual tricks with too many off-the-dribble jumpers. The Clippers didn't really have many options for scoring, so a wild Crawford shot was one of their best plays in the arsenal. The three-time Sixth Man of the Year will head into free agency with plenty of miles left on his tires.
Apr 30 - 1:24 AM

DeAndre Jordan tweaked his ankle in the fourth quarter on Friday and did return, finishing with 15 points, 20 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two turnovers in 34 minutes.

He rolled his right ankle in the fourth quarter as he stepped on Mason Plumlee's foot. Jordan did come out of the game right away, but he didn't go to the locker room. His ankle injury is very unlikely to affect his offseason program. Jordan led all postseason players in rebounds per game and was second in the regular season. His summer figures to be slightly more uneventful this year.
Apr 30 - 1:23 AM

Austin Rivers (face) is probable to return on Friday.

He needed stitches to two different cuts, but he'll be back out there. The Clippers will need Rivers, too.
Apr 29 - 11:11 PM

Austin Rivers caught an accidental Al-Farouq Aminu elbow to his face and went to the locker room.

It was pretty bad with Rivers' face gushing with blood. He'll likely be getting a concussion test along with some stitches. Jamal Crawford and J.J. Redick are going to have to play a ton while the Clippers have to go bigger, as well.
Apr 29 - 10:55 PM

Austin Rivers, J.J. Redick, Luc Mbah a Moute, Jeff Green and DeAndre Jordan will start on Friday.

He Clippers are going bigger in this game, but don't expect the overall minutes to change. Green should still be very busy in the first unit and obviously there's no need to panic on Jamal Crawford.
Apr 29 - 10:28 PM

Coach Doc Rivers said he will change his starting lineup for Game 6 on Friday.

It could be Jeff Green or Wes Johnson coming in for Austin Rivers or Jamal Crawford. The lineup change shouldn't really affect the minutes, so DFS players shouldn't be making any major tweaks.
