The Clippers are expected to have to endure challenges throughout the upcoming season, from filling the hole left by Kawhi Leonard due to injury to asking young players like Terance Mann to step up and contribute on day one. Having these challenges is not necessarily a negative thing, especially when looking at how the Clippers are approaching these challenges in the offseason.

We already know of how the Clippers sought to deepen their two-way guard play in the trade for Eric Bledsoe, as well as how the team brought more depth to the wing position by drafting Keon Johnson and Brandon Boston. The newest signing, however, shows that the front office is dedicated to rounding out their roster as well as they can with the limited options available to them. Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the Clippers reached a deal with Isaiah Hartenstein, who played most recently for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Aid groups decry migrant camp conditions a year after fire

  Aid groups decry migrant camp conditions a year after fire ATHENS, Greece (AP) — A year ago Thursday, on Sept. 9, Greece’s notoriously squalid refugee camp of Moria burnt down on the island of Lesbos, leaving nearly 12,000 people in need of emergency housing as winter approached. As the camp’s remnants smoldered, European leaders vowed such squalid facilities would be a thing of the past. But aid agencies say the conditions for asylum-seekers on Greek islands have barely improved. “A year after the (European Union’s) promises for a new start in the migration issue, European and Greek leaders continue to deny asylum-seekers, refugees and migrants seeking safety in Europe their dignity, while the catastrophic plan for the construction

If the Clippers advance out of this round, Lue will assuredly re-evaluate his rotations and find a role for Beverley moving forward. Defending Dončić may not be Beverley’s cup of tea, but the Clipper guard has had success against Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley Jr. Beverley will assuredly do whatever helps the Clippers win, even if that means yelling coverages from the bench and keeping his teammates engaged during stoppages. It seems like we’ve seen the last of him playing meaningful minutes in this series, though it’s never too late for more adjustments.

Although Hartenstein isn’t the most recognizable name, his ability to play at the center position is no joke. He averaged 8.3 points on nearly 60 percent shooting, chipping in 6.0 rebounds in fewer than 18 minutes per game last season with the Cavaliers. Compare that to Ivica Zubac, who averaged just one more point and one more rebound in about 22 minutes per game last season. Plus, the Clippers have options. They also signed Harry Giles to a non-guaranteed training camp deal, and with Ibaka and Zubac still on the roster, a strong showing by either Giles or Hartenstein could add immeasurable depth to a sometimes unreliable frontcourt.

Red Sox place Danny Santana on COVID-19 IL as outbreak continues to worsen

  Red Sox place Danny Santana on COVID-19 IL as outbreak continues to worsen Shortly after announcing that right-hander Nick Pivetta had been placed on the COVID-19-related injured list, the Red Sox announced that infielder Danny Santana has also been placed on the list. The #RedSox today placed INF/OF Danny Santana on the COVID-19 Related Injured List. To fill Santana’s spot on the active roster, the Red Sox recalled OF Franchy Cordero from Triple-A Worcester.

The Clippers have 10 players shooting above 40 percent from deep on a minimum of one attempt, with Leonard just on the outside at 39.8 percent. Taking better care of the ball and continuing to shoot the three-ball well will help the Clippers to close the season strong and get focused on the playoffs.

The LA Clippers could use a player like that as they push for an NBA title.

That demonstrates how the front office is actively looking to improve an already deep roster, but its impact is amplified depending on the effort put in by the players themselves. Bledsoe, for one, has clearly bought into the Clippers’ system and culture, putting in extra work outside of practice with John Wall. Not only does this lead to renewed speculation about the Clippers being a destination for Wall, but it shows that even the team’s most recent acquisitions are contributing even before play officially starts.

The effort put in by both the front office and by the players does not at all serve as proof that the Clippers will exceed expectations this upcoming season. However, fans can sigh a breath of relief if there were any questions about the team’s dedication to winning and success, with no signs showing the Clippers will ease off of their intensity.

Bills' Dion Dawkins 'not close' to full strength after COVID-19 hospitalization

  Bills' Dion Dawkins 'not close' to full strength after COVID-19 hospitalization Dion Dawkins was hospitalized for four days after developing severe COVID-19 symptoms. Dawkins lost 16 pounds and might have an uphill battle to be ready by the time the Bills begin their season. “He’s not close to where he needs to be to play and help us,” McDermott said. “So he’s got a long road here. … He’s going to control what he can control, and so are we. He’s got to continue to work hard to get himself back to where he’s — I mean, this is what, going on Week 4 of training camp at this point, so he’s missed a lot of time.

The Clippers are in a risky position right now. They finished slightly above 0.500 last year despite suffering devastating injuries and the discomfort of trading their franchise player halfway through the season. The Clips currently possess a mix of solid veterans and promising youngsters, a combination that is just tantalizing enough to believe they could be a playoff team next year by staying the course and signing some stopgap veterans (such as Mike Scott, or Anthony Tolliver/Amir Johnson/Avery Bradley). There is an outside chance, with good health and strong development from their young guys
