Give up on: Amir Coffey
After signing with the LA Clippers as an undrafted free agent in 2019, Amir Coffey has already spent four years in their developmental system. At this point, LA has to already know what they have or don’t have in Coffey. And perhaps the lack of opportunity this past season gives us an insight into that answer.
Coffey is coming off a season in which he averaged just three points per game on 39 percent shooting from the field. By the end of the season, his role in the rotation was pretty nonexistent. He only logged one minute in the team’s first-round playoff series against the Phoenix Suns.
The good news is that if LA still wants to explore Coffey’s potential, they can. Even if it may not be ideal for either side.
The Clippers don’t really have to make a decision on Coffey this summer. He still has two cheap years (roughly $3.6 per season) remaining on his contract with LA. The Clippers could still try to find a role for him this season but that seems difficult to believe after he fell out of grace this past year in LA. Unless the Clippers end up gutting their depth in a possible James Harden trade, it may be in the best interest of the team to find a way to move on from Coffey.
