Clippers waive F Paul Pierce.

It's official and the Clippers have lost two Hall of Fame players today. Pierce already announced his retirement earlier this year, so this move isn't surprising at all. The Truth will end his career as the 18th highest scorer all time with his 2008 Finals MVP topping his resume.

The Clippers acquired Kyle Wiltjer on Wednesday.

He's part of the Chris Paul deal. Wiltjer played a grand total of 44 minutes last season for his 13 points. He likely won't be on the roster next month.

Darrun Hilliard was traded to the Rockets on Wednesday, and flipped to the Clippers.

He's the seventh player the Clippers are getting in this deal, which is crazy. Hilliard isn't a lock to be on the roster and the team may opt to cut him before the weekend.

DeAndre Liggins was traded to the Clippers on Wednesday.

The Clippers now lead the league in DeAndres -- they won't get DeAndre Bembry from the Hawks, though. Liggins did have 19 starts for the Cavs before he was cut after the trade deadline. Liggins isn't a lock to be on the Clippers roster next year.

The Rockets traded Tim Quarterman to the Clippers on Wednesday.

The Blazers dealt him to the Rockets earlier today, so he didn't stay on Houston's roster for long. The Blazers Twitter also had a great tweet about acquiring cash considerations (tweet in link below). While Quarterman can get on a highlight for his dunks, he likely won't be getting minutes with the Clippers, assuming he stays there.

The Clippers will try to re-sign Blake Griffin as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Los Angeles sending away Chris Paul to Houston may have hurt their chances of retaining Griffin, although they still have money on their side as an incentive as they'll be able to offer him roughly $50 million more than any other team could. The Thunder have long been rumored to have an interest in going after Griffin as a free agent, but they'll need to move around some salary in order to be players in the Griffin sweepstakes.

The Rockets have acquired Ryan Kelly from the Hawks in exchange for cash considerations, and traded him to the Clippers in the Chris Paul deal.

This is yet another minor piece that Daryl Morey is acquiring to help facilitate the financial aspects of the Chris Paul deal. Kelly has a non-guaranteed deal, so he may not be staying with the Clippers for long.
Jun 28 - 2:18 PM

Montrezl Harrell will be traded to the Clippers as part of the Chris Paul deal.

Harrell might have some value in Los Angeles if the Clippers decide to blow everything up and start a rebuild, but if they open the season with Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordon on the roster, it'll be tough for Harrell to get enough minutes to make a difference in fantasy hoops.

Portland will be sending Tim Quarterman to Houston in exchange for cash considerations.

Rockets' GM Daryl Morey is in the process of collecting non-guaranteed contracts to send to the Clippers in order to make the financials work in the Chris Paul deal, so Quarterman will likely be shipped off to Los Angeles once the CP3 deal goes through. He has no fantasy value.
Jun 28 - 1:39 PM

The Mavs have sent DeAndre Liggins to the Rockets in exchange for cash considerations.

Liggins will likely be quickly flipped to Los Angeles in order to help facilitate the financial aspects of the Chris Paul trade. Liggins is a non-factor in fantasy hoops.
Jun 28 - 1:25 PM

Sam Dekker has been traded to the Clippers as part of the Chris Paul deal.

The Clippers sending away CP3 could make it tougher for them to retain Blake Griffin during free agency, and if Griffin does indeed decide to walk as a free agent, that could queue the beginning of the rebuild for the Clippers. Los Angeles does currently have a pretty big hole at the small forward spot, so Dekker might be able to see some quality minutes next season depending on how free agency shakes out. Still, he's just a blip on the deep league radar at the moment.

The Clippers will trade for Patrick Beverley.

It's an interesting week for Beverley, who was just named to First-Team All Defense on Monday. Beverley techincally started at shooting guard last year and wasn't much of an offensive factor, turning in a 14.1 usage rate in his 67 games. He'll almost certainly see more scoring opportunities with the Clippers and possibly even more than his 30.7 minutes per game. If the Clippers don't add much next month, he could be a solid fantasy target in the middle rounds.
Jun 28 - 11:52 AM

The Clippers will trade for Lou Williams as part of the Chris Paul deal.

Williams has been one of the best sixth men over the past decade and he'll likely be in a similar role next year. It's still unclear what the Clippers are planning to do with their roster, but there's a very good chance they lose a lot of their big-name players and may opt to rebuild. Lou was outstanding in his time with the Lakers last year, averaging 18.6 points, 2.3 boards, 3.2 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.1 treys. If the Clips don't add much next month, Williams can be viewed as an mid-round target.

The Sixers are expected to make a "hard push" at free agent J.J. Redick, according to Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer.

Back in May, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical also reported that Philadelphia would be interested in pursuing Redick. The fit makes sense. The Sixers need to add consistent outside shooting and veteran leadership. Redick is a respected vet who has been one of the league's most lethal 3-point specialists since arriving in the NBA. Philly has more than $30 million lavish on free agents this summer, and Redick could end up receiving a healthy chunk of their cap space.

Patrick Beverley was named First-Team All Defense.

Maybe this helps Houston's leverage in trade talks -- they are reportedly shopping Beverley and he's been linked to the Jazz. In addition to Beverley and Chris Paul, Defensive Player of the Year finalists Draymond Green, Rudy Gobert, and Kawhi Leonard all earned a place on the First Team. Tony Allen, Danny Green, Andre Roberson, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Anthony Davis make up the Second-Team All Defense.
