I really don't think of Oladipo as a point guard and, talented as he is when healthy, I don't think he has the kind of playmaking mentality and skill that the Clippers desperately need.

We should have hung on to SGA, offer another pick swap or something.

OKC set the terms of the deal. They had all the leverage.

I like T-Mann a lot but he's already 24. When a rookie can't make the team as at least the 15th man, you're just not talking starter material. You're in Yogi Ferrell territory, who went undrafted but still made it to the NBA by age 23 and has hung around since as a marginal rotation player.

I think T-Mann can manage that much because he has an NBA body [6'5" next to Yogis 6'], but he shot under 33% on 3s and his assist-to-TO ratio was only about 2-1--and that was only in G-League.

I'd love to see T-Mann crack the back of the rotation as a combo guard but I don't think these win-or-else Clippers can afford to invest any serious PG PT in him. The Clippers gave him a guaranteed contract because it looked like we were in rebuild mode but that's all over now. He showed more aptitude at the point than Shamet did but neither played much PG in college and it showed.

I mean, Shai played only one year of college but by age 20 he was already starting in the NBA. And I dunno if even he is cut out for PG--he seems more like a 2.

Just want a reasonable player behind Kawhi and a respectable PG

Been looking through different teams and Fultz seems like one of the better fits and contract direction for Lou.

Skill set fits the bench for what we currently have on the team and especially on the bench.

I'm going to contradict myself. At the start of the summer I wanted to go all in on Kris Dunn, and just get better defensively. I will not get over how Murray and Luka seemed to get whatever they wanted. Now though, I just want a playmaker and some people who will play with a lot of pride. That's why I will get sucked in and say we should go after IT. I just know he would play with heart and embrace the opportunity to rep the Clippers and LA. I think the starting line up is so iso heavy currently with Morris, Kawhi, and PG. A good point guard who can run screen and roll, and also an underrated leader like IT would help.

Well that's it. It's over. Might as well not even play the games. Clippers got this championship wrapped up.

Nicolas Batum plans to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers after he clears waivers, sources tell The Athletic NBA & The Stadium.

I honestly think Kennard should start at PG and have Pat come off the bench

If Marcus Smart is potentially obtainable, Clippers should do everything they can to obtain him. His salary is around the same as PB. I would sacrifice PB and Lou for a deal centered around Smart.

Yeah unfortunately this is a pretty good take on Terence Mann. The only thing I'll say in his favor is that he is a legitimate NBA PG prospect at 6'6" which has value or at least potential. But that's why he may be able to stick around in the NBA at all, not what will make him an All-Star or anything. He was a good 2nd round find for us.

That’s a pretty big hit defensively
