Back to the drawing board, as another attempt to improve the team at the trade deadline has been thwarted. There is still a small chance that the Zeller-Bullock trade could go through, but neither team is desperate trade either player, dropping the sense of urgency.
With that said, the Clippers still have holes that need to be filled. They need a third big man. They could use an effective 3-and-D player as the team has struggled in that area. Maybe Jared Dudley and Matt Barnes return to last years form after resting their bodies over the All-Star break. It’s no true way to prove that, but a lot of the Clippers future relies on those two getting things together.
Drew Garrison of SB Nation threw out this trade idea that’d be perfect considering what the holes the Clippers need to fill:
Clippers want a backup big. Jordan Hill is available for a can of Sprite. I’m just saying.

It wouldn’t hurt to inquire right?
