The Los Angeles Clippers declined to guarantee guard Eric Gordon’s $20.9 million contract for the upcoming season, making the 15-year veteran an unrestricted free agent, ESPN and The Athletic reported Thursday

The move saves the Clippers $100 million on their projected luxury tax bill, per the reports

The Clippers acquired Gordon from Houston as part of a three-team trade with Memphis in February

Gordon, 34, played in 22 games (11 starts) for the Clippers, averaging 11.0 points. He finished with 12.4 points in 69 games (58 starts) overall in 2022-23

Gordon began his career with the Clippers after they selected him No. 7 overall in the 2008 draft. He’s averaging 16.0 points, 2.8 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 818 career games (628 starts) with the Clippers, Rockets (2016-22) and New Orleans (2011-16)
