The 2021-22 Clippers made it to the NBA Play-In Seventh Place vs. Eighth Place game. Their regular season record of 42-40 was just good enough for a chance to go further. They lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves in the one-game "winner moves ahead" match-up. It was a great year for Paul George, Norman Powell, Reggie Jackson, and Marcus Morris Sr. Fans are excited to have John Wall in a Clippers uniform for the 2022-23 season. Wall agreed to a two-year deal during the off-season. Wall did not play in an NBA game last season, but when he's healthy, he averages 19.1 points per game with 9.1 assists.
Clippers Previous Seasons and Roster Moves
This offseason, two big-name free agents took note of the Clippers success a year ago and decided to join them. The first was Paul George, who signed for 30 million a year. The second was Kawhi Leonard, who signed for 32 million a season. These two moves immediately propel the Clippers into championship status. After several trades, the Clippers ended up with the 27th selection overall in the draft, which was used on Florida State freshman center Mfiondu Kabengele. After the two big moves in free agency, the Clippers were pretty much tapped in terms of cap, so they did nothing else.
George and Leonard join a roster that already includes the likes of small forward Maurice Harkless, point guard Patrick Beverly, and the veteran shooting guard Lou Williams, who even though it seems as if he has been around forever but he hasn’t. He's only 33. If this roster can click, which at times it has early this season, they can give the Lakers serious fits in the playoffs if they want to.
The Los Angeles Clippers commonly referred to as “Lob City” the last number of years finished the regular season a year ago with a record of 51-31, good enough for a spot in the Western Conference playoffs. The team lost in seven games in that first round to the Utah Jazz. For the Clippers, the off-season was more about what they lost than what they gained. Point guard Chris Paul left the team. For some reason, forward Blake Griffin re-signed a maximum deal for five years, and reportedly it was more about the money than anything else. Many are expecting coach Doc Rivers to move on before the season is out, and the Clippers will need to rebuild.
