So far, it’s been a bad offseason for the Los Angeles Clippers, as they’ve lost key contributors such as Montrezl Harrell, Rodney McGruder and JaMychal Green.
On the other hand, there is a fairly talented player in Terry Rozier who has expressed interest in coming west to join the team.

Coming off an epic meltdown in the playoffs at the hands of the Denver Nuggets, the Clippers’ biggest need is perhaps a point guard who is a true floor general.
Rozier may not be the best floor general, but adding him would be a solid way to address such a weakness.
After joining the Charlotte Hornets this past season, the 26-year-old guard blossomed, averaging 18.0 points and 4.1 assists a game while hitting 40.7 percent of his 3-pointers, all career-highs.
Rozier is under contract for two more seasons, so the Clippers would have to execute a trade in order to get him. He will make $18.9 million for the 2020-21 season.
