Allen signed a three-year deal with Indiana back in 2015 and has gone on to average just 4.3 points and 4.6 rebounds since then. This past season, he saw his minutes slip to a career-low 14.3 per game. After his option was declined, the 28-year-old will hit the open market when free agency begins July 1st.
Paul intends to opt out of his contract on June 29th, which would make him an unrestricted free agent, ESPN reports.
Paul will forgo the final year of his current deal with the Clippers, which is worth over $24 million, to hit the open market when free agency starts July 1st. While Paul is waiting for the final day possible to officially declare his intention, star forward Blake Griffin opted out of his final year on Friday. As a result, Los Angeles' two best players will be free to field offers from around this league next month, leaving the franchise with a humungous offseason ahead. At 32 years old, Paul averaged 18.1 points, 9.2 assists, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 2.0 three-pointers while shooting 41.1 percent from deep in 61 appearances this season.
McCallum will sign a free-agent contract with the Rockets, Johnathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
McCallum will link up with Houston for summer league action after spending part of this past season with the Hornets. Although he never played over the course of two 10-day contracts with Charlotte, McCallum averaged 17.6 points, 7.0 assists and 5.8 rebounds in the G League, and boasts previous NBA experience having played his first two seasons with the Kings before stints with the Spurs and Grizzlies in 2015-16.
Griffin (toe) has opted out of his contract, making him an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.
Griffin was scheduled to earn over $21 million during the upcoming season, but, as expected, he'll forgo that salary in search of a new long-term deal this offseason. While Griffin opting out doesn't come as a surprise, it does drive home the reality that he could leave Los Angeles this summer. At 28 years old, Griffin has averaged just over 21 points each of the last three seasons, while posting around eight rebounds and five assists per game the past two. Although he's ended back-to-back campaigns injured, Griffin still figures to be one of the five most-coveted free agents this offseason, giving the Clippers stiff competition to retain their star forward.
Afflalo was released by the Kings on Friday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
Afflalo's release comes ahead of Friday's deadline for a contract guarantee. After signing a two-year, $25 million deal with the Kings last summer, Afflalo went on to average just 8.4 points and 2.0 rebounds despite shooting 41.1 percent from three this past season, leaving Sacramento in search of cheaper alternatives. At 31 years old, the veteran will now hit the free agent market going into his eleventh season.
