  Report: Tyronn Lue 'at the top of the list' for Clippers' coaching job Of course, Lue is not the only name linked to the Clippers' coaching job, as Jeff Van Gundy, Sam Cassell, and Mike D'Antoni have also been named as potential hires. It's one of the most desirable openings in the NBA, as the Clippers have one of the most stacked rosters in the league.But even with all the talent, whoever takes over for Rivers will have a tough task ahead of them. Because regardless of what Paul George says, the Clippers are undoubtedly in "Championship or Bust" mode for the upcoming season.

Kawhi Leonard 's playmaking has made a leap with the Clippers this season, making the title favorites look even scarier. Several things have stood out about the Clippers : a deep bench, a seemingly endless supply of competent defenders, and three- point shooters, a defense that has held its two

Clippers had long been frontrunners for Leonard , but it is unlikely he would’ve made final leap to sign without PG trade. Windhorst still believes the Los Angeles Clippers are the favorites to sign Leonard , but says the Lakers are lurking. “We don’t know where Kawhi is going,” Windhorst said on

The Los Angeles Clippers proved they are far from flawless with their disappointing early exit in the playoffs, and Kawhi Leonard apparently has some ideas on how they can fix things heading into next season. One of them is to add more backcourt help.

Leonard has privately told people that he wants the Clippers to add a point guard this offseason, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said on “First Take” this week. The Clippers have Patrick Beverley, but Smith says Leonard is hoping for a point guard “who can run a team and can shoot.” Smith said:

  The Clippers went all-in to build a super team and time is already running out to win championships The Clippers went all-in on Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, and now have big questions to answer after coming up well short of the NBA Finals.However, the Clippers agreed to pay the whopping price because getting George also meant getting Kawhi Leonard, the most coveted free agent in 2019, who told the Clippers he wanted to play with George.

“They clearly need a point guard. Everybody knows it and Kawhi Leonard privately has clamored for one. It’s not that he wants them to get rid of Patrick Beverley, but Patrick Beverley is basically a defensive ace who’s small and has to play opposing guards. They need a point guard who can run a team and can shoot.”

That will not be easy to find, especially after the Clippers gave up multiple first-round picks to acquire Paul George last offseason. Reggie Jackson can score, but Leonard likely wants a much better starting-caliber player.
