DeAndre Jordan

While we’re not trying to add Lob City superstars Chris Paul and Blake Griffin to this year’s Clippers, we do think that big man DeAndre Jordan would help the squad by giving them quality minutes off the bench at the center position.

Just before league play was suspended, the Clippers signed former Defensive Player of the Year Joakim Noah to a ten-day contract to help sure up their bench. If Jordan was on the team, that move would not have been necessary.

Jordan is producing well in limited minutes with the Brooklyn Nets this year. He’s averaging 8.3 points and 10 rebounds per game in just 22 minutes of action. His rebounding numbers are what would really help the Clippers’ second unit, as Jordan pulls down 34.2 percent of available defensive rebounds while he’s on the floor.

Boban Marjanovic

While Marjanovic does pull in defensive rebounds at a 30.5 percent rate while he’s on the court with the Dallas Mavericks this year, this theoretical addition is just as much a way to bring back the fan favorite former Clipper to the fold as it is to bolster the team’s on-court performance.

Boban is just pure fun, plain and simple. He brings joy, and energy, and giant-ness to any team he’s part of. Having that back would only be icing on the cake for a potential Clippers championship run. Imagine how fun he’d be at a championship parade.

While the real-life Clippers are well on their way to compete for the championship as-is, we think any of these former players would fit in great and be quality additions to the current roster.
