It was abundantly clear from the very beginning that the LA Clippers never intended on joining in on the draft day fun.
From top to bottom, the LA features one of the more stacked rosters in the entire NBA. However, even with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George returning from their devastating injuries, and despite a revamped bench, featuring Robert Covington and Norman Powell, LA has a few holes that they’ll need to plug.
Although LA did get their hands on Moussa Diabate with the 43rd overall pick, their lone selection on the night, the one-and-done prospect is extremely raw. Meaning, it’s incredibly unlikely that he plays a significant role on their roster this season and will instead, look to develop his skills tirelessly at the end of LA’s bench.
As 58 newly minted NBA players begin life as a professional hooper, several former college hopefuls are crossing their fingers as they wait patiently by the phone. With so much talent to choose from, the Clippers will have plenty of options. They won’t need much. Nevertheless, there are several names that the Clippers could look to either sign or at the very least, invite to camp. Let’s dive into it and discuss the best choices.
