After another disappointing season, the LA Clippers will be entering a new era. Donning brand new uniforms and moving out of Crypto.com Arena in favor of the newly-christened Intuit Dome, the Clippers will have a fresh look as they try to get back to their winning ways.

To do that, they will have multiple difficult decisions to make. With Paul George, James Harden and Russell Westbrook all becoming free agents in just a few short weeks, the team's roster could look very different by the start of the season in October.

The Clippers will of course be looking into the available free agents this summer and determining which could be best fit to help them level up next season. If one or more of George and Harden leave, they will likely be pursuing another starter-level player.

But even if all their top-level talent stays, LA will need to upgrade their bench with higher-level role players as well. These are a few potential free agent targets for the Clippers, ordered by their career three-point percentages.

5. DeMar DeRozan - 29.6%

This past season, one interesting dynamic of the Clippers' roster was that their top four players were all native to Southern California. Of course, location does not always translate to winning basketball, but it was something that brought the fanbase together even more.

If the Clippers were to land DeMar DeRozan in free agency this summer, they would gain yet another player hailing from in or around the 213 area code. DeMar's addition to LA's roster would likely mean one of two things: Either James Harden or Paul George moved on, or DeRozan was willing to accept a bench role.

If Harden and George both remain in town, they will presumably both continue to start, which would leave DeRozan's only option as coming off the bench. It would seem unlikely he would accept this kind of role, given the caliber of scorer he still is. But if the Clippers were to land DeMar, his capability in certain lineups would be limited due to his certifiably poor three-point shooting percentage.
