A Statement from Los Angeles Clippers’ President Andy Roeser

June 30, 2008



On Elton Brand and Corey Maggette opting out of their contracts:

“We have been notified by Elton Brand and Corey Maggette of each player’s decision to opt out of his respective contract. On Monday night, when NBA rules permit, we will be aggressive in contacting them to address our interest in having them remain with the Clippers. We will also be active in contacting other free agents in whom we have interest.”

“Our summer is already off to a successful start, and we view our good fortune in last week’s NBA Draft as only the beginning of great things to come. We intend to use every resource to make this team a legitimate contender for ’08-’09, and we look at today’s developments as an opportunity and an important step in accomplishing that.”


On Shaun Livingston's Future

“We are optimistic about Shaun’s ultimate return, but under the circumstances, we think it would be best to continue to monitor his progress while determining how best to move forward on his long-term status.”
