The LA Clippers had a rather quiet offseason, but brought almost everybody back.
That was priority number one, and they got it done. The chemistry on the team should be much better this year, as they will finally be mostly healthy. They will now have a year of experience under elite head coach Ty Lue, and only look to develop even more under him.
There are a few players primed to develop at an even higher level than the average Clipper. These three are going to shock the world and introduce themselves on a greater scale.
No. 3 LA Clippers player primed for a breakout season: Justise Winslow
The LA Clippers signed Justise Winslow in free agency this offseason, which surprised many.
It’s actually pretty obvious as to why they did it, however.
Winslow is very similar to a lot of players that fit in this system.
He’s a long wing who can play the two, three, and four positions. Sounds pretty familiar, right?
Nicolas Batum and Marcus Morris Sr. absolutely thrive as that type of player in this type of role. Even other long wings like Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, who don’t play much power forward offensively, can guard the bigger position as well.
Winslow is going to break out and prove his top ten draft pick status correct in these small ball lineups where he’s going to get open looks from three. He can be himself, and succeed in a system built for players like him.
