LAC has shown the willingness to spend money to try to win in the past few seasons, but they have to logistically figure out how they can get 2 quality starters at the 2/3 that will help take them to the next level while still keeping a decent bench group. They cant go into next year with Billups/Green/Butler as potential starters.

Doc Rivers also has to show he's the coach everyone thinks he is by turning Jordans career around. If Jordan can become a Tyson Chandleresque player like he can be, then the Clippers will contend, but if Jordan continues to show poor basic fundamentals on defence and isn't a force on the glass and with helpside defence, I guess it wont really matter who they pick up at 2/3.

They're definitely going to be one of the biggest movers this offseason IMO. They have a lot of positions to fill with so many free agents and question marks outside of CP, Crawford and Blake.
