According to a number of experienced NBA trading experts and reporters in Los Angeles, Clippers owner Ballmer has completely given up Harden. He has clearly told the rest of the management that the team will not be obsessed with chasing him. On the one hand, he does not want to see Harden put pressure on himself in renewing his contract, and on the other hand, he seems to change his mind and stay in Philadelphia, and then send out the plan after Philadelphia and the new team discuss the deal.
There is no doubt that the beard can’t be sent away by Philadelphia, and his agent has begun to push him back to the team training and make sure that Philadelphia will find a new team for him at this time. The Clippers are unwilling to bear the pressure of renewing their contracts, and they must definitely disconnect from George Cam, which is very clear to Deng Ge’s agent.
After completely missing James Harden, the Los Angeles Clippers will have to look for a new All-Star player. Judging from the suggestion report of some directors, it seems that everyone has an idea about Zion, and if he really gets him, the contract renewal problem of Cam can be solved, matching his annual salary of more than 50 million and adding Pang Hu to build a dual-core, which is absolutely strong. The league has stipulated a new policy and there should be restrictions on the rotation. Therefore, Tyrone has to be limited.
If you want to get him, the team is expected to send Paul George Gammann or Powell, and analyze the matching of transaction value and maintaining the fighting force lineup. I estimate that Ballmer will also ask for CJ mccollum. If so, it is enough for the team to send them both, plus the draft pick, Powell and Covington. If you want alvarado, you can also send a round and add some cash.
The Clippers have created a starting combination of Wei Shao, CJ mccollum, Zion, Leonard and Zubac, and with the assistance of batum and others, they definitely have a chance to enter the top four in the West. If there are no injuries, I think this combination can go further. Of course, it is important to improve the reserve strength.
After George and others go to Pelican, they will face the problem of renewing their contracts. Pelican can take this opportunity to ask for as many first rounds as possible in this transaction, and Clippers can also give them. Of course, the most important thing is that with Mann, the team can still guarantee its combat power in the future. Hylander is a good player, and the Pelican can take it. In the final analysis, if you want to ask for the opponent’s draft pick and young players as much as possible, your own young cornerstones will not work. If you can, I think it is king to exchange Varanciunas for the opponent’s Zubac.
On the whole, this trading scheme is very good. Pelican can solve the problem and meet the Clippers’ challenge. However, I think both teams need to hire coaches who can arrange defense reasonably now. The Clippers have many players who can defend, but they just can’t do it well. Telunlu has not changed this problem for so many years. If Pelican defends well, it won’t matter.
Harden’s situation is more complicated, so we don’t have to pay attention to it all the time. He will not be traded for a while, and the Clippers are not willing to spend more with him. Let’s look forward to the development of each team after the start of the season!
