The Clips are holding this 2 game lead on the Lakers and are only a half a game behind Utah for 7th. But Lebron is going to come back at some point (isn't he?) so that'll make it tougher to hold that spot.

Let's go Clippers!

All joking aside...I can see the clippera pushing hard for Davis right now.

Lots of picks, SGA and expirings.

Then sign Leonard in offseason.

I mean thats what I would try for.
Dallas
PG:Kemba/Brunson/Barea  SG:Brogdon/Snell/Broekhoff  SF: Doncic/Batum/Finley-smith  PF: White/Kleber/Dirk  C: Jordan/Powell/Sejri

I agree , I think they want to end up with AD and one of KD or Kawhi

I think Boston is now 2 fiddle to LAC in getting AD . 

KD could solve alot of this by deciding to stay in GS .

I don't think they have a competitive offer for Davis, personally.  SGA is a decent prospect, but if I'm NOP, I need a better centerpiece than that.  You don't settle for a package built around SGA when guys like Tatum and potentially Zion are on the table. 

Agree that they're in good shape for free agency, though.

I'm surprised. I did not expect a team fighting for a playoff spot to trade their best player for picks. It's a good haul for them, though.

Now we have to root for the Clips to sign some big free agents this summer so that pick can still be something.

I'm going to go against the grain here and say the Clippers will finish out the season strong.

I know he's not everyone's favorite coach here, but Doc Rivers isn't one to tank unless his hand is really forced.

He won COY in '00 when he lead a Magic team everyone thought would be one of the worst in the league to 41-41.  The Magic were rebuilding, having lost/trading away vets like Penny Hardaway, Nick Anderson, Horace Grant, Dominque Wilkins, Ike Austin, etc.   Their most depended on players (based on total minutes) were Darrell Armstrong and Bo Outlaw.  Doc got them to .500.  To realize how remarkable this was, in the 56 years of the award, only 2 other coaches have had an equally bad or worse record and won COY and that was in '67 and '78.  So for Doc to win COY going 41-41, you know expectations had to be low.

Now the 2 years in Boston he had losing records ('06 and '07) he was saddled with young players.  Doc is at his best when he's coaching vets, and that's what LAC currently still has for most of their rotation: Gallinaro, Bradley, Beverley, Williams, Gortat, Chandler, Muscala, etc.

I don't know if they'll finish in the playoffs, but they'll finish above .500.  That's my prediction.

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

From what  I've heard just from podcasts and stuff, they seem to be the front runner for Kawhi Leonard.

The Clippers are a hilariously competent and competitive team. I honestly thought the Harris trade would end them. My mistake.

How great would that be?  Id feel bad for Toronto fans - their organization took a respectable risk and these geographic preference moves suck for the league, but obviously it helps the Cs.  The other great thing is to see the Clips beat the Lakers to the great player for once.
