This is a huge season for the Los Angeles Clippers. Why? Not just because the team’s aged roster is another year older and creakier, but also because several of its key players could be on the way out as free agents next summer.

Most important among them to Los Angeles’ long-term prospects is Blake Griffin, who has the option to terminate the final season of his existing contract and hit the open market come July. As he told Sirius XM NBA Radio on Wednesday, though, the Clippers superstar has barely considered free agency – and certainly hasn’t discussed it with anyone whatsoever.

“Honestly, it’s nothing I even really think about. I haven’t had the conversation with anybody. That includes friends, family, agents, coaches, teammates; it’s not a conversation I have. I’ve got a lot of basketball left to play this year. Got a full season, postseason, still got preseason, so that’s on the back of my mind. I’ll deal with that when the appropriate time comes, but right now isn’t the time.”
Griffin might not be thinking about free agency, but the basketball world is definitely doing it for him.
