Jordan Farmar has signed with Maccabi.

Farmar is familiar with the Israeli game and will once again head back overseas after failing to establish himself in the NBA upon returning. If healthy, Farmar could re-emerge on the NBA radar again before too long.

Jordan Hamilton finished Sunday's loss to Detroit with two points (0-of-4 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), four rebounds, one assist, two turnovers and no defensive stats in 20 minutes.

He's starting for the Clippers during the Orlando Summer League, and is now averaging 6.5 points through two games. Hamilton has shot 40.5 percent from the field during his four-year NBA career and his 2015-16 salary is fully non-guaranteed.

Royce White was a non-factor in eight minutes for the Clippers on Sunday, going scoreless with two rebounds, two turnovers and two personal fouls.

He was just as ineffective on Saturday and at this rate he won't be invited to a team's training camp, let alone earn a guaranteed contract.
Jul 5 - 2:50 PM

Second-round pick Branden Dawson looked like a bargain on Saturday against the Magic, scoring 14 points with 14 rebounds, one assist and four turnovers in 27 minutes.

He was awesome today and had a couple beautiful higlight-reel jams. The Clippers used $600K to buy the 56th pick off the Pelicans and didn't have a first-round pick (Doc Rivers trade), so Dawson could be one of the best players for them at summer league. He's a small forward and will have a very tough time getting minutes with the big club.

Royce White missed one shot from the field and both from the line against the Magic on Saturday, adding two assists, two turnovers and no rebounds.

He looked to be in shape, but he just wasn't active on either end. White is going to have to improve to even get a training camp invite.

Coach Doc Rivers, owner Steve Ballmer and president Gillian Zucker met with DeAndre Jordan.

There were no current players involved here. Rivers likely addressed the basketball side of the meeting with Ballmer and Zucker, the former president of business operations before the promotion, handling the non-basketball stuff. It'll come down to the Clippers or Mavs here. The loser on this deal will be in a bad spot.
Jul 2 - 9:57 PM

Austin Rivers said he hasn't ruled out a return to the Clippers, but wants to explore the free agent market.

"I plan on looking at all my options and making best decision for my career," Rivers said. "I’ll definitely consult my family they've always been extremely supportive. I do love playing for Clippers...just going to be patient and hear everyone out." Of course, Rivers' family is fairly connected with the Clippers as his father, Doc, is the team's head coach and president of basketball operations. We'll have to wait and see if there is a family reunion to be had here, but Rivers profiles as a backup wherever he signs and won't be worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues.

Dahntay Jones has received interest from the Kings, Clippers and Knicks.

It'll be a for minimum deal. Jones didn't do much this season and his most newsworthy item of the season was bumping into Draymond Green during an interview. He's from New Jersey, so maybe that can actually help the Knicks sign someone.
Jul 1 - 10:55 PM

The Clippers have agreed to a three-year deal with Paul Pierce worth nearly $10.5 million.

It is going to be at the mini-mid level exception, which will help the Clippers to bring back DeAndre Jordan. The Clippers had some issues with their small forward last year and had to go small a lot, so this is a big move. Pierce is going to be 40 years old when this deal concludes, but the three years in this deal is just to help keep the cap number down.
Jul 1 - 7:09 PM

Coach Doc Rivers has reached out to unrestricted free agent Glen Davis.

Big Baby had a nice season as a backup big man and the Clippers will need him a bit more with Spencer Hawes in Charlotte. Obviously, they need DeAndre Jordan to start.
Jul 1 - 6:04 PM

If the Clippers can sign DeAndre Jordan, they are confident they can sign Paul Pierce.

The first part of that statement may be the hard part with Jordan getting a strong push from the Mavs, including a dinner and a 4.5 hour meeting. The Wizards are "encouraged" with Pierce, so it's likely down to those two teams.
Jul 1 - 6:00 PM

The Wizards were reportedly "encouraged" by the conversation they had with Paul Pierce when free agency began on Wednesday.

Washington appears to be making Paul Pierce their top priority this summer, and it's starting to look he is leaning towards returning to the Wizards. The Clippers are still expected to after Pierce, but their interest in Wes Johnson and Gerald Green suggests that they may not like their chances of signing the Truth.
Jul 1 - 8:58 AM

The Wizards will have a phone conversation with free agent Paul Pierce just after midnight on Wednesday.

Washington has become increasingly optimistic over the past few days that they can retain Pierce, who gave them a huge lift during this year's postseason. He's also been linked to the Celtics, as well as Doc Rivers and the Clippers, so a return with the Wizards is only one of a few plausible scenarios.
Jul 1 - 12:01 AM

The Clippers will not release Jamal Crawford before his contract becomes fully guaranteed, according to a source of Dan Woike.

The Clippers are, however, said to be shopping Crawford, so there are no guarantees that he'll be in Los Angeles next season. The Clippers have quite a few guards on the roster, but are really lacking in the small forward department, so a trade of Crawford that nets them a small forward makes sense. Crawford had a down-year during the 2014-15 season, making it through just 64 games to go with averages of 15.8 points and 1.9 pointers per game. He really doesn't bring a lot to the stat sheet aside from scoring, so he's not a very valuable asset in fantasy hoops.
Jun 30 - 4:58 PM

The Wizards are reportedly "optimistic" about their chances of retaining Paul Pierce as an unrestricted free agent.

Pierce is rumored to be toying with the idea of returning to the team that drafted him (Boston), or reuniting with his former coach Doc Rivers in Los Angeles to make a title run with the Clippers, but the Wizards are certainly still in play. Pierce probably has the best chances of making a deep playoff run in the East, so that could factor into his decision. As for fantasy, Pierce put in averages of just 11.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.6 three-pointers per game during the 2014-15 season, so he won't be much more than a low-end play in fantasy hoops next season.
