The Clippers have exercised their 2016-17 option on second-year guard C.J. Wilcox. Wilcox, who is making $1,159,680 this season, is slated to make $1,209,680 in ’16-’17.

Wilcox, 24, appeared in 21 games in 2014-15, averaging 2.0 points in 4.8 minutes. He averaged 14.0 points in the 2015 Orlando Pro Summer League. Even so, he’s going to find it difficult to get quality minutes on this team’s deep roster.
