The Los Angeles Clippers had something of a gap year in the 2021-22 NBA season. Now, they resemble a sleeping giant.
They’ll be counting on better health from Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in 2022-23. Meanwhile, they spent the season sneakily improving the roster around them. Normal Powell and Robert Covington were both dream acquisitions for this soon-to-be contender.
They could still use a point guard. Reggie Jackson is a good NBA player, but he’s got a scorer’s mentality. Acquiring a truer floor general would allow the Clippers to move him into a sixth-man role, where he’d likely flourish.
Malcolm Brogdon is a floor general. He’s also on a potentially rebuilding Indiana Pacers club. They just acquired a similar, but considerably younger player in Tyrese Haliburton.
