The LA Clippers are one of the hottest teams in basketball. Riding the play of Kawhi Leonard and his supporting stars, the Clips have won 18 of their last 23 games en route to securing the fourth spot in the Western Conference standings.

Overall, LA's roster is strong and they clearly have some of the best high-end talent in the league right in their starting lineup. But that does not mean that the front office will not still be aggressive and seek out opportunities with the approaching February 8 trade deadline.

One area the Clippers could seek to improve is wing depth. When they traded for James Harden, LA lost Robert Covington, Nic Batum, Marcus Morris and KJ Martin, all of who can provide three-and-D value on the wing. There are four trade targets flying under the radar that could be a good fit for the Clippers.

1. Jerami Grant

Some may not realize it, but Jerami Grant is currently in his tenth season in the NBA. He has come a long way from the 20-year old rookie with the "process" 76ers, and is one of the most underrated frontcourt players in the association.

With a 6-foot-7 frame and weighing in at 210 pounds, Grant is well-equipped to defend multiple positions at a high level. He has been a 20 point per game scorer in three of the last four seasons, and has shot over 40% from three since the start of the 2022-23 season.

Grant has not come off the bench since the 2019-20 season, but he would have a hard time cracking the starting lineup were he to land in LA. If the Clippers are willing to give up assets to acquire him, it could be worth giving the Portland Trail Blazers' phone a ring.
