The Los Angeles Clippers have had a busy summer of acquiring superstars, but there may be one more veteran on the way to round out the roster — Jeremy Lin.
The Clippers pulled off the shocker of the summer when in one fell swoop they landed Kawhi Leonard in free agency and orchestrated a blockbuster trade, landing Paul George from the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Clippers are still a bit thin in the backcourt, with Patrick Beverley the only true point guard on the roster and recent signee Derrick Walton behind him on the depth chart, the USA Today‘s Hoops Hype noted.
That makes the Clippers a top contender to sign Lin, who is a free agent after a title run with the Toronto Raptors in which he saw the court for just 27 minutes over the course of the entire playoffs and only one minute during the NBA Finals.
As the Hoops Hype report noted, the Clippers would be a logical destination for an experienced guard like Lin, even if it wouldn’t mean big playing time.
