As the Clippers suffered heavy losses in the playoffs this year, the aftermath about them has never been interrupted, and the entire team is also thinking of ways to strengthen.
According to ESPN host Steven-A-Smith, the Clippers are considering how to get a quality point guard, because the current Beverly is not their ideal standard.
"They obviously need a point guard, everyone knows this, and Leonard privately is also strongly calling for a quality point guard." Smith said on the TV show.
"It's not that Leonard wants to see Beverly leave, but that Beverly is essentially a good defensive player, but he is short in stature and often has to defend against tall and big men. They want A guard who can connect teams and score."
Indeed, Beverly is not a traditional point guard. He is good at defensive and entangled, but organization and series are weak points, and his scoring ability is mediocre.
Obviously, the Clippers have hired coach Tyronn Lue, who has determined to overthrow Rivers' tactical system, let the ball move more, play faster, and also use some new tactics on defense.
