Everything going very nicely with the Clips pick. No incentive to tank yet, given their record - they only need to go at .500 until the trade deadline to prevent the tank, and be in the hunt for a playoff spot.

Pat Beverly was such a nice piece to get back in that CP3 trade. Watching him and Avery on the court together is something to behold. I won't be surprised if Clips even look at upgrading Gortat or Mike Scott (although they've both been playing pretty great too).
Yes, to my surprise. But they clearly can't afford any injuries or down they go in the competitive West. Just look at the teams they have to fend of. No easy task. They have to keep playing well.

2015 LAC 1st from the Doc Rivers trade did become #28 RJ Hunter

Better luck this time if they make the playoffs?

I mean, even if itís the 44th pick, could it be much worse than RJ?

Not a chance, the money's not guaranteed :)

I just posted in the Memphis season thread and I thought I'd post here as well.
We own the Clippers pick (2019 draft) if it's not in the lottery or it rolls over until next year. If they don't make the playoffs next year we get their 2nd rounder in 2020.
Like Memphis LAC has been on a downward slide but right now the pick would still convey (#20 as of today). We're likely to get their first rounder eventually as they are a strong contender to land a significant free agent next summer.
Where does everyone stand regarding getting their pick this upcoming draft or in 2020? I'd prefer their pick this year because of what I said about them landing a FA next summer and being a top 4 team in the West with their pick likely in the mid/late 20's.

Itís not a guarantee they land a top FA (see Paul George) so I would want it to convey this year.

So it looks like the Clippers will be fighting it out for the last playoff spot in West, likely with the Lakers. I'd guess it's a 50/50 chance, or less, the pick conveys this year. I'm not including the Kings until I see what happens through the month of February, as their schedule is loaded with tough teams.
Supposedly, there's a good chance they sign a significant free agent this summer so we could still get their pick in 2020 if it falls out of the lottery. Otherwise, we get their 2nd rounder.
 
It also looks like we'll have to start a 2019-2020 Memphis watch thread pretty soon (haha) as we are very unlikely to get their pick this year. It's top 6 protected next year and unprotected in 2021 (yeeaaahhh boooyyyyy!)
