From ESPN.com news services:
The Los Angeles Clippers are passing on Ray Allen but will still bolster their backcourt by re-signing Chauncey Billups and adding Jamal Crawford.
Billups, who played 20 games with the Clippers last season before injuring his Achilles heal, will get a one-year deal, sources told ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard. The Los Angeles Times, which first reported the moves, reported that the contract is worth up to $4.3 million.
Crawford, who opted out of the last year of his deal with the Trail Blazers, will receive a multiyear deal. A source told Broussard that he will get a four-year deal for between $21 million and $25 million. The Times reported that he will get a three-year deal for $15.7 million.
