3. John Wall

Through a remarkable off-season, John Wall was expected to shine for the LA Clippers. Regardless of his notable injury history, Wall still possessed a great touch around the rim and some of the best playmaking skills in the NBA.

On several nights, especially early in the season, Wall took a substantial step forward in the absences of superstars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. But, after his abdominal injury against the Denver Nuggets, it was clear as day that a change was coming.

Furthermore, inserting an injury-prone star into an unhealthy roster was a questionable decision from the jump. This was the primary concern, and it panned out in the same manner as Wall didn’t last but 34 games for the LA Clippers.

During these games, Wall averaged 11.4 points, 5.2 assists, and 2.7 rebounds. Although these numbers may seem fantastic, it is worth noting that he turned the ball over 2.4 times per contest, along with a field goal percentage of 40.8.

In addition, the biggest reason why Wall didn’t work out is because of his inability to play from a distance. As the LA Clippers compete for a championship, point guards who cannot shoot the three ball should not be seen on the court. This forced Wall into countless challenging situations as he shot 30.3% from three on 3.2 attempts per game.

Moreover, they would likely have bought him out if the front office could not find a trade partner at the deadline. This proves how his time with the LA Clippers was underwhelming.
