los angeles clippers FAQ

How Important Was Re-Signing Marcus Morris For The Clippers?+

The Clippers splashed the cash on Marcus Morris, signing the 6-foot-8 forward to a four-year extension worth $64 million. It was a considerable amount of money, but in the end, it should be a decision that pays off for L.A. in the long run.

Last season, Morris averaged 10.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in 28.9 minutes per contest as the team's starting power forward. The 31-year-old also brought in a certain toughness to the Clippers squad upon his arrival, and his veteran presence also served a key role in terms of the leadership he provided.

Keeping Morris on board was key in ensuring fluidity in the squad's starting lineup. The fact that they also gave up Maurice Harkless, two first-round picks, and a second-round pick in order to acquire Morris from the Knicks last February further emphasizes the importance of not letting Morris walk away for nothing.

Are The Clippers Better In 2020-21 Compared To The Roster That Came Up Short In 2019-20?+

The Clippers are going to field the same starting lineup next season with Patrick Beverley, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, Marcus Morris, and Ivica Zubac. There are, however, going to be some considerable changes in their rotation, with Montrezl Harrell, Landry Shamet, and JaMychal Green all out of the picture.

L.A. was able to bring in Serge Ibaka and Nicolas Batum through free agency, while also adding Luke Kennard and Justin Patton via trade. Ibaka is a competent replacement for Harrell, while Batum and Kennard are key additions to the second unit.

More importantly, perhaps, with one (partial) season under their belt, we should expect a better, more cohesive Clippers side next season with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George leading the charge. Setting all the negative noise aside, the 2020-21 Clippers appear to be primed for a more formidable challenge this coming season -- on paper at least.

Did The Clippers Make A Mistake Not Re-Signing Montrezl Harrell?+

Montrezl Harrell opted to walk away from the Clippers to sign with the team's cross-town rivals in the Los Angeles Lakers. To make matters worse for the Clippers, the reigning Sixth Man of the Year winners two-year deal worth $19 million is quite the bargain for the Purple & Gold.

Taking everything into consideration, it seems that re-signing Harrell wasn't really in the hands of the Clippers. The 6-foot-7 big man seems to have already made up his mind about not wanting to remain with the franchise. The fact that he joined their most bitter rivals only adds salt to the Clippers' wounds.

Re-signing Harrell would have been nice -- after all, he was a key cog to their team last season -- but in the end, the Clippers may have not stood a chance in the first place, and their interior defense struggled at times with him down in the paint.

Should The Clippers Try To Trade Paul George For Another Superstar?+

Much has been made about the Clippers blowing up their roster following their disappointing second-round exit last season. More than a few folks were campaigning for a Paul George trade, who himself was simply terrible in the playoffs. The general belief is that L.A. could trade away George for another superstar to pair alongside Kawhi Leonard.

At this point, however, that talk seems premature. There's no denying that George has his flaws, but let's not forget that he's been an All-Star in six out of the last seven seasons. Moreover, much like every other team last season, the unprecedented format of the coronavirus-struck campaign never really allowed the Clippers to get a full season in.

Paul George deserves at least another year (and a full season) with the Clippers before we even start talking about trading him to a different team.

Will the Clippers trade any players this offseason?+

With the Clippers already having a nucleus in place to win an NBA championship, it may not be necessary to pull off a blockbuster trade in the offseason. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are superstars, and any potential trade would likely need to involve a player that would fit in well with the current group of talent.

Who is the Clippers' 3rd best player behind Kawhi Leonard and Paul George?+

Montrezl Harrell, who himself deservedly bagged the Sixth Man of the Year award last season, was L.A.'s third best player last season. With him out of the picture, another former Sixth Man of the Year winner should emerge as the Clippers' next best bet behind their two superstars in Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

Despite being 34 years young, Lou Williams is still one of the most potent offensive forces in the league today. Last season, the 6-foot-1 combo guard averaged 18.2 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 5.6 assists, while also connecting on 1.7 triples per game. We expect more of the same from Lou-Will this coming season.

Who Is The Best Clippers Player?+

Kawhi Leonard is the best player on the Clippers' roster. Leonard is trying to bring an NBA championship to the Clippers after winning one with the San Antonio Spurs and one with the Toronto Raptors.

Who Owns The Clippers?+

Steve Ballmer purchased the franchise in 2014 after NBA commissioner Adam Silver forced former owner Donald Sterling to sell the team. Ballmer is a former CEO at Microsoft.

Who is The Clippers Head Coach?+

Tyronn Lue is the new head coach of the Clippers heading into the 2020-21 season. He took over the job after the team’s disappointing exit in the second round of the 2020 NBA playoffs, replacing long-time coach Doc Rivers. Lue served as an assistant on Rivers’ staff in 2019-20.

Who Are The Clippers' Assistant Coaches?+

Chauncey Billups, Dan Craig, Kenny Atkinson, Larry Drew, Roy Rogers, Brendan O'Connor, and Jeremy Castleberry are the Clippers' assistant coaches.

How Much Are The Clippers Worth?+

According to Forbes' NBA Team Valuations list, the Clippers are worth $2.6 billion. The franchise ranks sixth in the NBA in team value.

Where Do The Clippers Play?+

The Clippers play at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Staples Center opened in 1999 and has a capacity of 19,060 for Clippers' games.

Who Are The Best Clippers Coaches Of All Time?+

Despite recently parting ways with the team, it's hard to argue against the notion that Doc Rivers still remains to be the greatest Clippers head coach of all time. He currently holds the record for most wins in both the regular season (351) and the playoffs (27). Rivers was at the helm during the celebrated Lob City years, which is one of, if not the, most successful eras in franchise history.

Mike Dunleavy Sr. holds the record for second-most regular season wins for the team (215) behind Rivers, and he should most certainly be considered as an all-time great. Two other former coaches that deserve a mention here are Jack Ramsay and Vinny Del Negro.

Who Are The Top 5 Clippers Players Of All Time?+

It's a toss up between Chris Paul and Blake Griffin as to who is the Clippers' GOAT. The former will go down in history as one of the best point guards ever, but it was Griffin who was the star of the show for the Lob City era in L.A. Regardless of who you're taking between these two legends, there's no denying that both of them contributed significantly to the overall success of the team.

We turn the clock back for our third player on the list: Bob McAdoo. Despite being mostly known for helping the Los Angeles Lakers to a title later on in his career, it could be argued that he had his best years with the Clippers.

Similarly, Elton Brand played for a number of teams in the NBA, but it was with the Clippers that he established himself as one of the best big men in the league.

We're taking DeAndre Jordan as our number five guy for the role he played in the Lob City years -- arguably the most successful era in Clippers franchise history.

Kawhi Leonard is going to be a Hall of Famer, and maybe even Paul George. Nonetheless, neither of them has done enough to make it on our list after just one season in Los Angeles.

Who Are Clippers Legends?+

If we were to list our Top 5 greatest Clippers of all time, then it would go like this (probably in this particular order): Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Bob McAdoo, Elton Brand, and DeAndre Jordan.

Aside from these five greats, there are also a few other names that have earned legendary status for their respective contributions to the franchise.

From the '70s we have Randy Smith, World B. Free, and Bob Kauffman.

The '90s starred the likes of Danny Manning, Ron Harper, Eric Piatkowski, and Gary Grant.

Finally, Corey Maggette and Chris Kaman were a couple of names that made their impact during the 2000s.
