Clippers Preparing To Make Big Trade
The Clippers are preparing to make a big trade.
Los Angeles currently boasts a 31-14 record, good for the third best record in the Western Conference.
Beyond that, they also hold a 2-0 season series lead against the presumed best team in the West, the LA Lakers.
Despite that, the organization still feels like there are ways to go to really get the roster to where it needs to be.
According to New York Times NBA insider Marc Stein, the Clippers are currently “exploring the trade market for dependable size as well as potential wing depth.”
While the Clippers are loaded at the wing in theory with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, injury concerns surrounding both have forced the team to bolster its depth.
Apparently the Clippers are also worried about the length the Lakers bring to the table between Anthony Davis, Javale McGee and Dwight Howard.

“Doesn’t guarantee that they’ll make a deal, of course, but the Clippers are said to be concerned about their lack of muscle up front compared to the Lakers’ length as well as the ongoing health issues Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are battling,” Stein tweeted.
The Lakers, meanwhile, are also looking to address some notable holes before the NBA trade deadline. They are said to be looking for three-point shooting and point guard depth ahead of the playoffs.
