The Clippers roster this season has talent, but risk is also embedded in it. The gamble with Lance Stephenson and Josh Smith didn’t work well. Stephenson once had a heated exchange with an assistant coach in the locker room.
“There are clearly issues in Los Angeles that go beyond the results on the schedule. You would think that if a team was strong enough internally, they would be able to push through a rough patch without any craziness, if that’s indeed what the Clippers are going through right now, who are 2-7 in their last nine contests. But that’s not the case,” said Sir Charles, citing the disarray of the team after registering a 7-8 start this season.
A three-way trade involving Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers was proposed in different forums for newly signed center DeAndre Jordan and two other guys. It is only applicable if Clippers fail to bounce back till trade restrictions. Jordan finished with 11 rebounds as Clippers fell to Utah Jazz on Wednesday.
The Clippers may send Jordan to Celtics and Stephenson and Smith to the worst struggling team of this edition’s NBA, the Sixers.
