Heading into the 2019-2020 season, the Los Angeles Clippers had incredibly high expectations. Most experts appointed them to be the team to spoil LeBron’s quest for a title in Los Angeles. Instead, the LA Clippers blew a 3-1 lead to the Denver Nuggets in the second round of the playoffs.
Despite what Paul George may say, this season was truly championship or bust for the Clippers. This failed quest is why SportsCastr News NBA’s Adam Armbrecht and Matt Brooks have chosen to dive into the Kawhi Leonard trade rumors. After a truly embarassing playoff performance, will the Clippers decide to blow up their team?
On their SportsCastr stream, Adam and Matt argue that the Clippers will not choose to restructure their entire team. Rather, they will bring in a select few pieces that were missing in their playoff run. A more ball-dominant point guard is one potential missing piece.
Outside of the Clippers trade rumors, the SportsCastr News NBA team also discussed what the Brooklyn Nets longterm plans will be regarding Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert. Both young players can thrive in most systems, but there may be too many mouths to feed in Brooklyn with the addition of Kevin Durant.
The SportsCastr crew continued to jump around the NBA, giving their take on a Bulls team attempting to claw its way back into relevance. With a top-5 pick and rising star Zach Lavine, the Bulls are primed to attempt a run in the Eastern Conference.Tags: Brooklyn Nets, Bulls, Chicago Bulls, Clippers, Denver Nuggets, Kawhi, Kawhi Leonard, LA Clippers, Los Angeles Clippers, NBA, Nets, Nuggets, Paul George, PG13, SCN, SCNNBA, SportsCastr, Zach Lavine Last modified: October 22, 2020
