The NBA’s Free Agency period looms closer each day, and the Los Angeles Clippers have some holes to fill.

Now that we’ve had some time to gather ourselves since the Los Angeles Clippers’ regular season finale, it’s become clear that the current roster has some glaring holes.

First and foremost, the lack of three-point shooters is unacceptable. The team shot 35.4% from deep this season, which was the seventh-lowest mark in the league. In addition, 22 teams attempted more threes per game than they did.

In an evolving league that has become increasingly reliant on the three-point line, so much so that the Philadelphia 76ers went as far as adding a four-point line to their practice facility, those kinds of numbers just won’t do.

The Clippers should also be searching for a formidable replacement for DeAndre Jordan this offseason, assuming he opts-out of his contract and tests the market as expected. There should be some solid options available by way of the NBA Draft, but thrusting a 19-year-old into the starting rotation may not be the option. Starting Boban Marjanovic wouldn’t really work either, given his lack of endurance and agility.

We did some digging and found a few guys that could provide the punches that these current Clippers can’t. The team could realistically sign half of them with cap space to spare, so they won’t have all the answers. But every great team needs a great supporting cast, and with defined roles, each player could prove to be a steal.
