Swap Shamet for Robinson and the value is fine, but even with the Clippers lack of play making, with already 3 featured perimeter players in tow, they'd be better off keeping the knockdown shooter.
If they make an in season trade or signing, it should be to shore up the interior.

He's still significantly better than Beverly, but who cares because Gasol is the player that would really make a difference in LA.
That starting lineup is deadly. Gasol can be the main facilitator and interior defender. Right now they don't have anyone who can stop/limit a guy like Davis or Jokic.
Nah, Scumbag and George are where they want to be. The former signed for the opt out after 2 years because he'll 1) Likely get more money in the long run and 2) He'll maximize his leverage over the franchise.
Davis would shred Gasol off the dribble (despite not being on a contender, Aldridge is a better example), but Gasol would be a nice fit because he can provide some needed play making, while also allowing Harrell to defend his more natural PF occasionally.

Harrell is a C in a PF's body. Unless paired with a floor spacing rim protector, who can allow him to guard his more natural position (Kabengele might grow into this), he has to defend C's.
