Only player I can think of is CP3, but even then, there's only so much ball that can go around.

Frankly, they need a better rim protector and a better PG than Beverley. Perhaps a knock down 3 pt shooter to contend with GSW.


The perfect PG for the Clippers would be a guys like Rubio, Paul, Lowry, Smart etc...guys that don't need to take that many shots and do all the little things on the court to help teams win.


If they could pry Lowry away from Toronto, that would be ideal.

I don't think Lowry leaves TOR though.

He can't leave TO, he just signed a 1 year extension.

Masai also would never trade Lowry to the Clippers.

Actually, he would. Except for the fact they have nothing to really substantiate a deal. Masai is the king of fleece jobs... in this case, clippers have emptied the cupboards.

The Clippers need to figure out how to get Derrick Rose from the Pistons.

They need to not overreact... I would also try to start Terrence Mann at the point as a big guard to complement the two superstar wings like Phill did with Ron Harper!

just re-sign harrell and run it back. They already have most of their assets tied up for about 5-6 years. They didnt make that trade for a one year window.

Took a gamble and did not work. Was worth a shot.

I'd guess they look to go after CP3 or John Wall.

After the blatant tampering the Clippers did with Kawhi, you really think Masai will hand Lowry over (ignoring that Lowry signed a 1 year) for the garbage trade assets the clippers have left? Masai was pretty livid with what the Clippers were doing last year and even more so the way Kawhi left with Uncle Denis laughing all the way. I guess they can send creepy stalkers to Raptors games again to woo Lowry.

Also considering that the only good piece the Raptors could get for Lowry is Lou Will and Masai already got rid of Lou Will in 2015 despite Lou Will wanting to stay in Toronto.

Zero chance Masai ever makes a deal with the Clippers while Kawhi is there.

CP3 coming back would be amazing but I can’t see it happening. I don’t see many good PG options out there in free agency. One guy I like as a secondary playmaker is Tyus Jones, I wonder if we could pry him from Memphis.

All they need is a pure point guard and an athletic, defensive big that can move his feet.

DJ Augustin or Ish Smith and Nerlens Noel should suffice.
Maybe try somehow to convince Darren Collison to come out of retirement.

Derrick Rose probably best cheapest answer tbh.
