Re: Austin Rivers agrees to two-year, $6.4 million deal with Clippers
So now that the band is basically back together... did the Clippers improve this offseason or just get crazier?
PG Chris Paul/Austin Rivers
SG J.J. Redick/Lance Stephenson/Jamal Crawford (presumably)
SF Paul Pierce/Wesley Johnson/Jordan Hamilton
PF Blake Griffin/Josh Smith
C DeAndre Jordan/Cole Aldrich
They still need to add a 3rd PG and some big depth. I just smell another first or second round exit for this team. They'll probably come into the playoff somewhere between the 3rd and 6th seeds. That means they're likely playing either OKC, Memphis, San Antonio, or Houston in the first round. If they can manage to beat any of those teams (which I'm not sure they can), is there really any chance they would beat another one of those teams or even the Warriors in Round 2? Not bloody likely.
But that's just me.
