Nate Robinson is mulling an offer from Sichuan Blue Wales in China.

Robinson played in 34 games for the Nuggets and nine for the Clippers last season, but he saw less than 15 minutes per game at both clubs. It's not a shock that he hasn't received a lot of interest from NBA teams, but we will let you know if he decides to play in China.

Paul Pierce's free agent decision came down to the Celtics and Clippers, according to Clippers head coach Doc Rivers.

"I think he wanted to go one of two places," said Rivers. "He wanted to come back here or he wanted to finish his career at home where he grew up, and I think it's really cool for me that I can be a part of that." While it's nice for Celtics fans to think of what might have been, Pierce will now join the Clippers and will likely assuming their starting forward job. Rivers has spoken of keeping Pierce fresh for the playoffs, however, so the 37-year-old won't be worth more than a late-round flier in standard fantasy leagues.

Doc Rivers reportedly sounds "very intrigued" by the idea of using Paul Pierce as a stretch-PF, but he hasn't yet defined Pierce's role for the Clippers.

Pierce drifted toward a stretch-four role with the Nets and Wizards, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him earning a few minutes behind Blake Griffin this season. The bad news is that Rivers' priority is "to keep [Pierce] healthy for the playoffs," and low playing time will make it hard to rely on him in standard leagues.

Glen Davis will have surgery on Wednesday to repair torn ligaments, a cyst and a bone spur in his left ankle.

He is expected to miss 8-12 weeks, which means he won't be ready for the start of the season. Davis remains unsigned and he'll likely remain a free agent when the NBA season tips off. If teams lose players due to injury during the year, they may be more inclined to contact Big Baby.

Clippers sign F/C Chuck Hayes.

After the Rockets backed out of a deal to sign him last week, the 32-year-old will now head to Los Angeles to join the Clippers. While he'll help provide the Clips with veteran leadership off the bench, he only played 8.8 minutes per game last season and shouldn't be drafted in standard fantasy leagues.

Chuck Hayes will sign with the Clippers.

He only played 8.8 minutes per game with the Raptors last season and he's almost certainly not going to be in the rotation. Hayes is a good locker room guy and the Clippers are already really deep, so it's easy to like this small pickup.

Chuck Hayes will not be joining the Houston Rockets, according to his agent.

While Hayes had reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Rockets, his agent said that his client will not sign with the team due to salary cap issues. The Rockets want Hayes to join their coaching staff, but the 32-year-old still wants to play. We'll keep an eye on Hayes' situation, but fantasy can feel free to ignore the Chuck Wagon as doesn't provide any fantasy value.

The Clippers are reportedly "confident" that Glen Davis will re-sign this summer, though the Mavericks have also contacted the free-agent PF/C.

Davis might play in Europe or China if no suitable contract materializes in the NBA, and it's almost certain that the Mavs and Clips are offering him the veteran's minimum. It would be bitterly ironic if Dallas manages to poach Davis from the Clippers, having failed to land DeAndre Jordan, but Big Baby is irrelevant in fantasy leagues no matter where he's playing.

Steve Ballmer issued a statement regarding the $250,000 fine the Clippers received for violating the league's anti-circumvention rules.

"As I shared with everyone on day one of purchasing the Team, being part of the Clippers family means operating with the highest integrity," wrote Ballmer in his statement. "We believed we were doing this the right way, and any circumvention was inadvertent. In our effort to support our players in every way possible, we as an organization must be diligent in complying with the CBA." The league determined that the third-party endorsement opportunity (reportedly Lexus) had no bearing on Jordan's decision to re-sign with the Clippers, though it was still a violation the anti-circumvention rules.

The NBA has fined the Clippers $250,000 for violating the league's anti-circumvention rules when making their pitch to DeAndre Jordan during free agency.

The Clippers pitch to Jordan reportedly included a third-party endorsement opportunity for him if he were to return to Los Angeles, which is a direct violation of the league's anti-circumvention rules. The rules prohibit teams from providing a player with any source of outside compensation, unless the compensation is included in the player's contract or otherwise expressly permitted under the CBA. However, this offer came before Jordan had verbally committed to Dallas, and he ultimately did not sign with the third-party company.

Blake Griffin is excited about getting a little more rest during the upcoming season.

"My third season in the league when we had that unbelievable bench, I think I dropped to like 32 minutes a game in the regular season...You definitely feel fresher toward the end," Griffin said. After averaging above 35 minutes per game in each of the last two seasons, Griffin could drop down to the 32.5 he played during the 2012-13 season.

Carlos Delfino (foot) will not play for the Argentinian national team this summer.

Injuries have kept Delfino sidelined for the past two seasons, and he's currently an unrestricted free agent. There are no guarantees he finds himself a roster spot this offseason, and he can be ignored in all leagues on draft day.
Aug 23 - 7:27 PM

Jordan Hamilton has officially signed with Krasny Oktyabr in Russia.

Hamilton has spent time with the Nuggets, Rockets and Clippers during his brief NBA career, but he is going to need to develop his game overseas for the time being. Hamilton boasts career averages of 5.5 points, 2.6 boards and 0.9 3-pointers on 40.5 percent shooting from the field, so he wouldn't have been an option in fantasy leagues if he stayed in the NBA.

Dan Woike of the Orange County Register said that the Clippers won't just give Jamal Crawford away without getting something useful in return.

Crawford has been linked in countless trade rumors over the past few months, but it wouldn't make sense for them just to give him away considering how crucial his role is off the bench. The Clippers shouldn't feel too confident about Austin Rivers or Lance Stephenson making a significant impact based on what we saw last season, so there's no reason to think that a deal involving Crawford is imminent.
Aug 21 - 1:49 PM

Blake Griffin said taking 3-pointers "blew up" on him and he's not expecting to take more next season.

He made a very respectable 10-of-25 (40 percent) last season, so it's not like it was a complete nightmare. Griffin said he is working on his shooting, which is nice to see after he improved his free throw shooting to 72.8 percent last year. He was actually 76.7 percent from the line after the break last season, so there's a decent chance he clears 75 percent in 2015-16. He's a rock-solid pick in the second round.
