Although they didn’t have much money to work with, the Los Angeles Clippers were able to have a very good offseason thanks to the signings of Spencer Hawes and Jordan Farmar, among othersThe Los Angeles Clipper entered the NBA offseason without a lot of money but still managed to have a productive offseason.
After losing Darren Collison to the Sacramento Kings, they replaced him with Jordan Farmar. Before that move, they agreed to a deal with veteran center Spencer Hawes. Farmar averaged 10.1 points, 4.9 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 0.9 steals in 22.2 minutes per game while shooting 41.5% from the field, 43.8% from beyond the arc and 74.6% from the charity stripe last season. Hawes put up 13.2 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.2 blocks per game while shooting 45.6% from the field, 41.6% from three and 78.3% from the free throw line.
Late in the process, big man Ekpe Udoh also signed with the Clippers.
Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders believes the Clippers had an excellent offseason.
I like the moves that the Clippers made over the offseason. Darren Collison was very good last year, but I think Jordan Farmar can step in and be a solid reserve as well. He looked good last year when he was healthy and shot the ball incredibly well. I think Spencer Hawes and Ekpe Udoh were excellent additions to the team, since the Clippers lacked frontcourt depth last season. Hawes will be able to spread the court and he can spell Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, while Udoh gives the team a shotblocker off the bench (which they really didn’t have last year).
Udoh was certainly a very good addition at a very small price. Guard Chris Douglas-Roberts, who was also signed, had his moments with the Charlotte Bobcats (Hornets) last season. They also re-sign veterans Glen Davis and Hedo Turkgolu.
