The Los Angeles Clippers finished their season in the usual style, falling too early in the playoffs and injury ridden. After failing to reach the Western Conference Finals again, could Blake Griffin be ready to part ways with Lob City?
My take, on his potential destinations as a free agent:
With the NBA season slowly coming to a close, I brought my good buddy Chris Morrison, analyst and host of the Hooper’s Log podcast over on NBALead, to talk about potential landing spots for some of the players that have no contract or options for this summer.
Next on our list of upcoming free agents, a sharpshooting bucket dropper, and 10-year veteran, JJ Redick. With Chris Paul and Blake Griffin also facing free agency, Redick is expected to test the market, searching for a contract near $20-million.
With that in mind, who are some teams that may take interest? My take:
The Oklahoma City Thunder were knocked out of the playoffs Tuesday night, and Westbrook’s awe-inspiring MVP candidacy came to a close. It was one for the books, and arguably the best single player season we’ve seen in years.
The season is over for this team, but a chance to do it all over again, lies in free agency.
Last week, the Utah Jazz beat the Clippers in Game 7 to knock them out of the playoffs. For years the Clippers have been a consistent team in the West, but eventually something has to give. Is this the end of Lob City?
