LOS ANGELES (AP) - After a regular season unlike anything in the Los Angeles Clippers' mostly miserable history, their year ended with a decidedly Clipper-like first-round playoff flop.
And though Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and their teammates have changed the perception of this franchise with two straight solid seasons, the Clippers can't believe they're already done - and already headed into an uncertain summer.
Paul's free agency is the biggest offseason concern for the Clippers, whose club-record 56 wins and first division championship meant little during four straight losses to rugged Memphis.
Paul claimed Saturday he hasn't even started thinking about his future because he had planned to be playing until June.
Coach Vinny Del Negro's contract is up this summer as well, and it's unclear what the franchise plans to do with him.
