The Clippers, in addition to a GM search, also face a summer of big decisions with star forward Blake Griffin eligible for a contract extension and (Chris) Paul entering the final year of his contract.
But one source close to the process told ESPN.com’s Marc Stein that (Neil) Olshey’s departure would have “no significant impact” on Griffin’s decision, despite the fact that it was Olshey whose moves put the Clippers in position to trade for Paul in December when the Hornets’ original three-team trade to send Paul to the Lakers was canceled by NBA commissioner David Stern, who was acting as the Hornets’ lead decision-maker because the team was still under league ownership.
The Clippers, sources say, continue to believe that Griffin will accept an extension this summer as opposed to playing out the 2012-13 season and becoming a restricted free agent in July 2013.
