Now the Clippers can work on trying to find a big shooting guard when free agency starts Saturday at 9 p.m. PDT, and to offer contract extensions to All-Stars Griffin and Paul.

The Clippers are expected to offer Griffin a five-year extension that could be worth up to $95 million, with an opt-out clause after the fourth season. Griffin also could sign a four-year extension. Griffin, who will earn $7.2 million next season, is expected to sign one of the deals.

The Clippers are expected to offer Paul a three-year extension worth $60 million. But Paul, who will make $17.7 million next season, is likely to turn down that offer. Instead, the point guard is likely to wait and decide whether to accept the Clippers’ five-year, $110-million extension offer in July 2013.
