The LA Clippers already have multiple pieces in place for the upcoming season and many view them as a dark horse candidate in the Western Conference. With free agency looming and trade rumors flying left and right, it's time to look at the Clipper' free agents and what may happen with the team.
Restricted: PF DeAndre Jordan
As you can see, there is not a lot left to be done. Re-signing Jordan will obviously be the big move, but many teams around the league will be interested in the lengthy forward after a breakout season. Keeping Jordan in LA should not be too difficult with the NBA's new labor deal in place, but you just never know with the madness of free agency. All it takes is for one team to offer a ludicrous deal.
Neither Craig Smith nor Jamario Moon will be top priorities for the team, although they could elect to stay with the Clippers in a bench role. Los Angeles will be one of the younger teams in the league when games begin in a month and a veteran presence off the bench could be big for the franchise.
