The Clippers Are title Contenders in 2013-14

The Los Angeles Clippers are considered to be one of the top five teams in the league on paper. They now have one of the top five coaches in the NBA to coach that talent. They have superstars in Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, and they still have Eric Bledsoe, DeAndre Jordan and their first round pick in this year’s draft class. They can use those three pieces to grow their franchise for the future. The Los Angeles Clippers are expected to trade Eric Bledsoe to the Orlando Magic in exchange for Arron Afflalo. Many other NBA teams will also be interested in Caron Butler’s expiring contract.  The Clippers have a lot of tradable assets. Their team will only get better from here onwards.

With Doc Rivers as the new head coach for the Los Angeles Clippers, it’s pretty much guaranteed Chris Paul is re-signing with the Clippers. He’s the best point guard in the league and the franchise has a bright future building their team around him.

The Clippers also look far more attractive to other free-agents and veteran players in the league. Los Angeles is a huge market and many players would love to play for a contender in the Western Conference.
