The Los Angeles Clippers don't feel they're too far off from being a championship contender. They have the best point guard in the league in Chris Paul. They have the most exciting big man in the game and one of the most emerging power forwards in Blake Griffin. They have a young solid big man in DeAndre Jordan, and decent swingmen in Randy Foye and Caron Butler, a rebounding big man in Reggie Evans, and another crucial cog in Kenyon Martin.
Still, they could use one more player to complete the puzzle. It seems Los Angeles has the right player in mind to help put the Clippers right at the top of the pack.
In regards to Jamal Crawford, I know the Clippers and T-Wolves "are very interested" in Crawford. Can't confirm those other teams reported.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) March 5, 2012
Crawford gives the Clippers a player who can create his own shot other than Paul and allows Los Angeles to really get their team clicking on both sides of the basketball. Having a swingman to complement CP3 and Griffin could be the crucial component to making Los Angeles an NBA championship-caliber squad.
