Within the last few months, the LA Clippers have made many solid additions to their roster. Despite losing their backup center, Isaiah Hartenstein, the front office made sure to fill in all of their needs. The primary focus for the LA Clippers throughout free agency was to retain as many of their players as possible.

With players like Robert Covington, Amir Coffey, and Ivica Zubac all on new contracts, the team will stand as one of the best teams in the NBA for many years to come. Some of the Clippers’ star talents are still playing some of the best basketball of their careers, which gives head coach Tyronn Lue a variety of weapons to utilize.

As training camp is approaching, several players could see a larger role within the next few weeks. A vast majority of these players will be asked to display their contributions through preseason, which may lead to a larger role during the regular season and onwards.

The LA Clippers will need as much roster depth as possible. After last season was riddled with COVID protocols and injuries, having roster depth will be key in competing for a top seed in the Western Conference.

3. Moses Brown

After the LA Clippers signed Moses Brown to a training camp deal, it was evident that he would have to earn his role before the start of the regular season. As of right now, Lue is in need of a backup center. Ivica Zubac is the only established big man on the current roster.

While Brown is still fairly young, he is seen as a great finisher, as well as an outstanding rebounder. If he stands out during training camp, Brown will be the go-to option for Lue when Zubac needs a breather.

Throughout his three-year career, Brown has shown several signs of having serious potential. Assuming he attains the backup center position, Brown will be a great fit with guys like Luke Kennard, Marcus Morris, and John Wall.

Brown will also receive the opportunity to learn from experienced veterans like Nicolas Batum, Kawhi Leonard, and Paul George. As he continues to improve his game on both ends of the floor, he is one of the few players that should be monitored until the start of the regular season.
