The LA Clippers have been dealt a major blow ahead of next season as it appears that Chris Paul and Blake Griffin will not be with the LA franchise any longer.

According to reports, the duo will not continue with the Clippers, and instead will choose to be free agents.

If either re-sign with the Clippers, they are set for huge paydays, with Griffin potentially earning $175million and Paul $205million over five years, per The LA Times.

This would be significantly less should they sign with other franchises.

This further fuels speculation that Paul will play alongside LeBron James, as the pair’s friendship has led to huge speculation that they may join forces at some point.

The NBA free agency period starts on July 1.

However, there is a belief that they will be back playing for the Clippers next season, and there is no need to stress over the issue.
