Paul Millsap

For approximately a decade and a half, Paul Millsap was near the top of opposing team’s leader boards whenever his ball clubs sauntered through their arenas. By and large, the former four-time All-Star could do it all. He powered through smaller players who attempted to drag him away from the rim and he out-thunk bigger, lumbering players who dared him to meet them at the rim.

Yet, despite his overall abilities, Millsap has spent the last few seasons of his career languishing at the tail end of numerous benches. His once energetic hustle plays have turned into listless dives for loose balls and his seemingly endless array of offensive moves that resulted in highlight-reel level baskets, now end with hard clanking shots off the back rim. Still, regardless of his struggles, Millsap would do wonders for a Clippers team that could use a bit more depth at the end of their bench.

With his touch around the rim still well intact, Millsap shot 50% from 2-point range during his game nine-game stint with the Philadelphia 76ers last year. His name won’t be called upon much, but Millsap could provide LA with timely scoring in short bursts.
