Marreese Speights has opted out of his contract with the Clippers and will become a free agent.
It’s a smart move for Speights and one that everyone saw coming. He put in another fine season of work as an offensive-minded bench big, averaging 8.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.3 deep balls per game in just 15.7 minutes. He was also tasked with starting from time to time and should be able to find a new home with relative ease. Considering he was slated to make just $1.4 million next year in LA and that the salary cap is going up again, Mo Buckets should be in line for a decent raise here.
