@bobbyblam asks: why not call up Marshall Plumlee? The Clippers have a great history with Duke. Why not continue this process?

Ryan

Honestly, the dude just doesn’t have it. In his 14 games with the Agua Caliente Clippers, he’s only averaging 8.5 points per game and 8.4 rebounds. The team gave him a fair shake by letting him play for the team during preseason, but he just doesn’t cut it. Besides, when everyone is healthy, he’d be behind Blake, DJ, Montrezl and Willie Reed. There just aren’t any minutes to give him.

Garrett

Big depth is too legit. Even with Blake out, it’s best to go with Montrezl and Willie Reed down low. Unless Plumlee becomes the G-League MVP this season, he’s best suited to run with the Agua Caliente Clippers.
