7th Man

This offseason has the chance to change the league in a way we’ve never seen before.  Free agents will be flying, teams seem a little more willing to make trades after the Raptors bet on themselves, and of course, the NBA draft.  The NBA never sleeps. Mock drafts are truly a gem to the sports […]

The 2019 NBA Draft will take place tomorrow night. Most of the buzz around the draft is centered on Zion Williamson, who is being touted as the best prospect since LeBron James. However, I have essentially stopped watching any college basketball, preferring instead the NBA. Therefore, I don’t have opinions for this coming draft. I […]

Full Scale Philly

While this year’s draft feels markedly less important than the past six or so, the Sixers are in a unique position where—as a contender in the East—they could actually use a rookie who can come in and provide minutes off the bench from night one.

LOS ANGELES — Sometimes the main course is so tantalizing you don’t have much interest in the appetizers before it. But take a bite of Thursday’s NBA Draft anyway, Clippers fans. The team has two second-round picks – Nos. 48 and 56. The Clippers don’t have a first-round selection because, by making the playoffs, their top-14 protected pick was conveyed to Boston, which will use it on the 20th overall selection. With so much of the focus on the Clippers’ intention to snare the big fish when free agency begins June 30, a pair of late second-rounders might not seem especially consequential. On one hand, there’s Kawhi Leonard, the now-two-time NBA champion and two-time NBA Finals MVP who’s expected to become a free agent and who reportedly is inclined to consider leaving Toronto to return to his native Southern California, where he could accept a lucrative job offer from the Clippers. But first, there are the much-less-familiar prospects who reportedly worked out for the team, along with several others with the potential to attract late-draft interest. The players the Clippers select might not even find a home with the team; second-round picks don’t have guaranteed contracts. Still, consider: The Clippers squad that was so beloved by its fan base last season when it became the fourth team in NBA history to win more than 45 games without a current or former All-Star? That team was heavily stocked with second-round draftees. Only Danilo Gallinari (No. 6), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (11), Jerome Robinson (13), Wilson Chandler (23) and Landry Shamet (26) were first-round draft picks. Otherwise, Montrezl Harrell (32), Ivica Zubac (32) Patrick Beverley (42), Lou Williams (45), Sindarius Thornwell (48) and Tyrone Wallace (60) all were second-rounders. JaMychal Green and Garrett Temple were undrafted. Those 48th and 56th picks (out of 60) certainly could yield a player who fits in with the Clippers’ gritty culture. For now, they have guards Gilgeous-Alexander, Robinson, Shamet and Williams, guard-forwards Thornwell and Wallace, forward Gallinari and center Harrell signed (although Thornwell and Wallace have non-guaranteed contracts and could be waived this summer to create more cap space). Considering the current roster construction, the Clippers seem inclined to focus their draft picks on a big man, a forward or a wing. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-section”]In the past few weeks, the Clippers have had a look at several such prospects, reportedly hosting closed-door workouts for Charleston forward Jarrell Brantley; North Carolina A&T guard-forward Terry Harris (the brother of Tobias Harris); Wisconsin forward Ethan Happ; Point Loma Nazarene forward Daulton Hommes; Purdue Fort Wayne combo guard John Konchar; Nevada forward Cody Martin; North Carolina forward Luke Maye and Kansas State forward Dean Wade. A handful of guards also reportedly have been through, including Utah’s Sedrick Barefield, Auburn’s Bryce Brown, Murray State’s Shaq Buchanan, Buffalo’s Dontay Caruthers, Campbell’s Chris Clemons, Virginia Tech’s Ahmed Hill and St. John’s Shamorie Ponds.
