Mo Bamba

Another option the LA Clippers could consider is bringing in a center that brings more to the table. A player they could look at is Mo Bamba. Assuming the Clippers wait before making their decision on giving Zubac an extension, Bamba would come in and battle for the starting role. After a slow start to his career, Bamba had a phenomenal season last year.

As the starting center for the Orlando Magic, Bamba posted 10.6 points per game, 8.1 rebounds per game, and 1.7 blocks per game in only 25.7 minutes per game. Bamba also developed an efficient three-point shot where he drilled 38.1% of his 4.0 attempts per game. Bamba posted career-highs across the charts.

Bamba also had a defensive rating of 108 in which he averaged 9.4 total contested shots per game. In the same season, Bam Adebayo, who finished 4th in defensive player of the year voting, averaged 7.8 total contested shots per game. Bamba is a very good defensive player.

What Bamba adds to the Clippers is better shooting at the center position as well as better defense. These are two very important factors when building a championship roster. Bamba would fit right into any role asked of him. Bamba instantly elevates the Clippers at the center position.

As Bamba enters this offseason as a restricted free agent, the LA Clippers would have to match offers to sign Bamba. Depending on what other moves the Clippers decide to make, the amount of money that is spent on Bamba’s contract is the most important factor.
