Since the start of the Kawhi Leonard and Paul George era, the LA Clippers have signed, traded, and waived a number of players. They may have been let go for various reasons, such as fit, poor performances, or even off-the-court issues. However, they will always be a part of the Clipper family.

Furthermore, the starting lineup has changed several times. In fact, Ivica Zubac is the only player on the current roster that has played through the entire era. This backs up the countless times the LA Clippers’ front office has made a move.

That said, here are the five worst players that have started for the LA Clippers since Leonard and George joined in the 2019 offseason.

5. Serge Ibaka

Though Serge Ibaka’s time with the LA Clippers may be unforgettable, he cracks the list at number five due to his availability. When he played, he made sure to show his 100%. Ibaka was a beast on defense, and he could space the floor, which made the game easier for Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

The issue was that in his only full season in LA, he suited up for 41 games. This added pressure on the starting center and the coaching staff to make the proper adjustments.

Luckily for the Clippers, Isaiah Hartenstein stepped up the following year and dominated the backup center position. This forced the front office to trade Ibaka at the deadline as he was unable to sustain his health.

Had Ibaka remained injury free, he would have easily gone down as one of the most important players to ever play for the LA Clippers.
