Jackson spent the last season with the Clippers on a minimum deal and was expecting a big payday after his performances during the playoffs. When given a spot in the starting lineup, he had a huge impact on the team offense with 18.9 points and 3.5 assists while shooting 42% from the three-point line.
In the postseason, the Clippers were eliminated, without Kawhi Leonard, by the Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference Finals. During the offseason, their main focus was to retain the role players that helped them get there and that has been achieved.
The one question that remains for the roster to be complete is the mystery man himself, Kawhi Leonard. Since he declined his player option and entered free agency there’s been very little reported but, according to Marc Stein, he is expected to re-sign with the Clippers.
Available unrestricted free agents include:
