JaMychal Green declines option, becomes unrestricted free agent

Green signed a two-year deal last summer at the room exception with a player option for this season.

Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Clippers

According to multiple reports, forward JaMychal Green has declined his player option for next season, becoming a free agent.

Although it would have been great for Green not to decline his option, this doesn’t come as much of a surprise. He has proven over the last few years that he is worth more than his $5 million option.

Green has been great for LA since coming over from Memphis two years ago. In 87 career games with the Clippers, the 30-year-old has averaged 7.4 points and 6.3 rebounds per game. He’s also been a surprisingly great three-point shooter, shooting 39.3 percent from deep.

As Jovan Buha of The Athletic reported, this will make it more difficult for the Clippers to add a free agent with the non-taxpayer mid-level exception unless they are willing to part ways with Green.

Just the other day, Green posted this picture to Instagram of him rocking a Clippers t-shirt. This could mean absolutely nothing, but Green has been posting a lot of Clippers content over the last few weeks.

Free agency kicks off tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. PT.
