Clippers' Paul Pierce: Will see more time at power forward this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Monday that Pierce will see more time at power forward rather than small forward this season, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register reports.

Pierce, who announced earlier Monday that the 2016-17 season would be his last in the NBA, has served as a small forward for nearly the entirety of his career, but received some looks at power forward last season when the Clippers had to adjust their rotations with Blake Griffin missing significant time with a quad injury. At this stage of his career, Pierce is probably better suited to match up with bigger players rather than smaller, speedier wings, who would be more apt to expose him off the dribble. Though Griffin is back healthy for the start of the upcoming campaign will and start at power forward, he'll also see some time at center when DeAndre Jordan is off the floor, opening up minutes for Pierce at the four spot. Despite the position change, it's unlikely that Pierce is in line for a dramatic upgrade in playing time or production after averaging a meager 6.1 points and 2.7 rebounds in 18.1 minutes per game last season.

Clippers' Blake Griffin: Says he's 100 percent healthy
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Griffin (quad) said Monday that he feels 100 percent healthy heading into training camp, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register reports.

Griffin was sidelined for all but 35 games of the 2015-16 season while battling a quad injury and a broken hand, and though he was back in time for the postseason, he appeared to aggravate the quad injury in the first-round series with the Trail Blazers and was sidelined for the rest of the playoffs. After skipping out on the 2016 Summer Olympics and enjoying a full offseason for rest and rehabilitation, Griffin will now enter camp without restrictions, barring any decisions from coach Doc Rivers to ease him back into the mix. Griffin has shown more aptitude as a passer the last two seasons and increased his output on the boards last year, so he might make for an interesting early-round target now that there's not quite as much buzz surrounding him coming off an injury-plagued campaign.

Clippers' Paul Pierce: Announces 2016-17 season will be his last
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pierce announced Monday via The Players' Tribune that he will retire from the NBA after the 2016-17 season.

Pierce had been contemplating retirement throughout the offseason, but it was expected that he would return to the Clippers for his 19th NBA season. The 39-year-old is now officially on board for training camp and will take aim at one last shot at an NBA championship during his retirement tour. Pierce saw his production fall off a cliff last season, and while the team doesn't have many attractive alternatives at small forward, it seems unlikely that he'll be in line for heavy minutes in 2016-17. Look for coach Doc Rivers to spread the duties around at the position, with Pierce, Luc Mbah a Moute, Wesley Johnson and Alan Anderson all expected to cannibalize the fantasy value of one another.

Clippers' Dorell Wright: Inks training camp deal with Clippers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wright signed a training camp contract with the Clippers on Thursday, Dan Woike of Orange County Register reports.

Wright opened last season with the Beikong Fly Dragons of the Chinese Basketball Association before latching on with the Heat in April after the CBA campaign concluded. While he didn't log any appearances in the regular season for the Heat, he made five appearances in the postseason, averaging 3.8 minutes per contest. Since the Clippers already have 15 guaranteed contracts on the books, it's unlikely that the 30-year-old will crack the roster out of training camp. He may be forced to continue his career overseas once camp draws to a close.

Clippers' Xavier Munford: Signs training camp deal with Clippers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Munford signed a training camp contract with the Clippers on Wednesday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

The 24-year-old point guard out of Rhode Island saw his first career regular season action with the Grizzlies last season, as he signed a pair of 10-day contracts in March before inking a deal for the rest of the season after injuries gutted the team's depth in the backcourt. In his 14 games for the Grizzlies, Munford averaged 5.7 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 0.9 steals across 17.4 minutes per contest, but had his player option for 2016-17 declined by the club. Though he'll get an opportunity to fight for a roster spot in training camp with the Clippers, Munford finds himself behind Chris Paul and Austin Rivers on the depth chart at point guard and may ultimately be forced to open the year in the D-League.
