Comment Opinions Please. Is This Good? Read The Full Description As All The Trade Details, Draft Picks, & Free Agent Signings Are There.

1. Move Brandon Boston Jr, Ivica Zubac, & 2028 2nd To The Portland Trail Blazers In A Sign & Trade For Jusuf Nurkic Worth $46 Million Over Four Years

Why ?: Nurkic would be an upgrade over Zubac at the center position. He’s one of the more versatile big men in the league, as he can score in multiple ways & recently add the three pointer to his game. Nurkic is also one of the better passing centers in the league, averaging over 3 assists a game. Defensively, he’s one of the more underrated guys in the league. He improved Portland defense so much when he was on the court & healthy. The Blazers allowed almost 11 points fewer a game when Nurkic was playing.

2. Draft Dalen Terry(PG, 6’7 195) With The #43 Pick In The 2022 NBA Draft

Why ?: He’s a prospect that’s been climbing up draft boards recently due to his great size & ability to attack the basket & dish out dimes. Terry is also a great defender that can get steals & can rebound well. He just needs to work on his overall shooting & jump shot in order to be a real threat in the league.

  1. Sign John Wall To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum($2.4 Million) After He’s Bought Out From The Houston Rockets

Why ?: Wall would fit in perfectly with the Clippers as their starting point guard. He gives them another nice option after PG & Kawhi that can handle & the score the ball. Wall on a minimum deal would be a steal for any contender, as he still has some juice left in him, even if he’s only a shell of his former self.

4. Resign Isaiah Hartenstein Using The Full MLE To A Three Year Contract $18 Million

Why ?: This man has played so well off the bench for the Clippers this year. He has been a delightful surprise for LA this season. The Clippers have been better defensively with Hartenstein on the floor then off. Offensively, Isaiah has nice vision & knows how to find the passing lanes for his teammates. He’s got great hands & body control for a 7 foot center, which is what many teams look for in a big man these days.

5. Resign Amir Coffey To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum($1.57 Million)

Why ?: Coffey has been an excellent bench player for the Clippers when his number has been called. He played very well at the end of the season when he got more minutes to show what he’s capable of.

6. Sign Deandre Jordan To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum($2.4 Million)

Why ?: He’s a veteran big man that knows how to make an impact on teams with his voice & leadership. DJ has plenty of experience & always stays ready when it’s time to play.
