2. Malik Beasley

Following a rough end to the regular season, Malik Beasley proved why the LA Clippers might swoop in and acquire him via trade. Since the trade deadline, he struggled significantly, which showed he wasn’t a good fit in the Lakers’ system.

Moreover, he is one of the best three-point shooters in the NBA when he is at his best. He made a firm name for himself in Denver, Minnesota, and for a brief stint in Utah. In fact, he is a career 37.8% three-point shooter on nearly six attempts per contest.

What’s more, Beasley would be perfect off the bench for head coach Tyronn Lue. Along with his shooting, the Florida State product brings a solid defensive game with the potential to score around the rim. For the right price, the Clippers should make a trade with no hesitation.

Furthermore, a trade between these two teams would have the Clippers receiving Beasley for Marcus Morris Sr. This package gives both players a fresh start, as well as both teams a proven veteran who can contribute heavily to a lengthy playoff run.

The idea of Beasley off the bench, along with players such as Norman Powell and Bones Hyland, is scary to think about. These three players bring immense offensive firepower, which could be helpful, especially in the playoffs.

There is no better option for the Clippers to pursue than Beasley. He has an undiscovered home, and it is right across the street.
