Doc Rivers called unrestricted free agent Jamal Crawford to swear the guard wasn't going anywhere, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

Crawford is taking a ton of meetings for his last chance at a big contract, so Rivers wanted to make sure he didn't forget about the Clippers. Crawford turned 36 in March, but he did play in 79 games last season with 14.2 points per game. The three-time Sixth Man of the Year still has a few good years left.

The Clippers reportedly met with free agent Jeff Green shortly after free agency began on Friday.

It's unclear who attended the meeting, which took place in Miami, and the likelihood of Green re-signing is complicated by the Clippers' pursuit of Kevin Durant. Doc Rivers recently suggested that Green would start at SF if he stays with the Clips, so he could see a bump in fantasy appeal if Durant signs elsewhere.

Austin Rivers met with the Clippers on Thursday and is also planning to meet with the Knicks and Blazers on Friday.

Rivers would be looking at a backup role on each one of these teams, but he will get a nice raise after a strong finish to the 2015-16 season. Rivers averaged 8.9 points, 1.9 boards, 1.5 assists and 0.9 3-pointers, shooting 43.8 percent from the field.

The Clippers officially announced the promotion of Lawrence Frank to Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations on Thursday.

"Lawrence is driven, dedicated and committed to the Clippers and has enjoyed success in the game in so many different capacities," Doc Rivers said. "He has a great basketball mind, and while we will miss his expertise on the bench, our organization will benefit from his energy, skills and leadership in the Basketball Operations Department."

The Clippers have reached an agreement with assistant coach Lawrence Frank on a promotion to executive vice president of basketball operations.

He's shifting to the front office and will still report to Doc Rivers. The Clippers still have general manager Dave Wohl, but Frank should have a big say in personnel decisions.

Austin Rivers is reportedly hoping to command an annual salary of $8 million as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Rivers is going to really benefit from the salary cap increase, and he already has meetings lined up with the Clippers and several other teams, according to sources of Brad Turner. Rivers is a capable backup, but he's a non-factor in standard fantasy leagues.

Jamal Crawford will reportedly meet with the Magic, Knicks, Clippers, Mavericks and Heat when free agency begins on Friday.

The three-time Sixth Man of the Year winner is sure to have plenty of suitors during free agency, and at 36 years old he'll likely be looking to sign a big-money deal. The Magic are reportedly "very interested" in Crawford and are reportedly meeting with him on July 1, and although the feeling is mutual, if winning is a priority teams like the Clippers, Mavericks and Heat would make for a better fit.

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Stephen Jackson would like to make an NBA comeback next season.

Jackson is now 38 years old, so there likely won't be much interest around the league. The Warriors were looking to add Jackson in a coaching role, but he must be convinced that he can still play at a high level. He will probably have a limited role if he does play again, but we hope he lands a contract because Captain Jack is a quote machine.

After trading away Victor Oladipo on draft night, the Magic are reportedly "very interested" in pursuing unrestricted free agent Jamal Crawford.

The Magic will have money to spend, and Crawford likely won't be giving anyone a discount as this will be the final big money deal of his career. Crawford would prefer to re-sign with the Clippers, and he's also going to receive interest from the Knicks, Heat, Mavericks, Nets and Raptors, so the Magic will have plenty of competition regarding the three-time winner of the Sixth Man of the Year award.

Paul Pierce reportedly expects to make a decision as to whether or not he will retire within the next few weeks.

Whether or not Pierce decides to hang it up will be largely irrelevant in fantasy hoops. The 38-year-old veteran put up career-lows across the board this past season with averages of just 6.1 points, 2.7 boards, 1.0 assist and 1.1 triples per contest while connecting a mere 36.3 percent of his shot attempts.

Jamal Crawford is expected to receive interest from around the league as an unrestricted free agent.

The reigning Sixth Man of the Year is expected to receive interest from the Knicks, Heat, Raptors, Mavericks, Magic, and the Nets in addition to the Clippers, so he'll have no shortage of suitors when he officially becomes a free agent on July 1. The 36-year-old has said he'd like to re-sign with the Clippers so it would be a surprise to see him wearing another uniform next season.

Ekpe Udoh is angling for a return to the NBA.

Udoh has set a deadline "early in July" to decide on his future. He'll be picking from a mix of six NBA teams and "two elite Euroleague clubs" in Fenerbahce and CSKA Moscow. "It’s definitely a possibility to come back to the NBA," Udoh told The Vertical. "I can see myself fitting back today. I have lowered my weight to 240, so I’m even more mobile. I protect the rim, get out in transition and I’m able to play with any team and guard one through five."

Doc Rivers believes that Brice Johnson can contribute right away.

"We like a lot of the things he can do and has done," Rivers said. "He has played big games in college. We like his upside, too. We like the fact that we believe he has a chance to help right away. But, we also feel like he has a high ceiling and he can get a lot better." Rivers is hoping that Johnson can extend his range beyond the 3-point line, but it sounds as if the rookie should be in the rotation next season.

The Knicks could be a possibility for unrestricted free agent Jamal Crawford.

"I'm not talking about any one team but everyone knows how I feel about New York," Crawford said. "I really enjoyed my time there." Crawford spent four seasons with the Knicks and played under four different coaches. Since then, he's flourished as a bench player, winning Sixth Man of the Year three times.
Jun 25 - 7:36 PM

Coach Doc Rivers said he's hoping Brice Johnson can extend his range to beyond the 3-point line.

Rivers said the No. 25 pick has 18-foot range right now. Johnson didn't attempt a single 3-pointer in his 3,102 minutes in college, so this would be surprising. On the positive side, he did convert 46.2 percent of his two-point jumpers, so that's a start. Even with four years under his belt at UNC, he's unlikely to get minutes.
