Double post! So, if all of the above is true, there's a clear cut loser of free agency: The LA Clippers. They had the cap room. They had the organization working like a clock. A great front office that has been courting top players all year long (Lawrence Frank went to Toronto several times to watch Kawhi... not talk to him, because that'd be tampering, if that mattered any more, but he was there and everybody knew it). An owner not afraid to spend. Young guys oozing talent. A great coach that has won everything. They haven't signed anybody that matters. And part of it, I think, is because they've focused on two top tier guys, KD and Kawhi, and tried to open cap space to sign both, so the moment one of them decided to not sign there (KD), the other had no reason to consider them, because it'd be going from a team that just won the ring to a team where he would have to carry everybody like in Toronto, except he had a better option in the same town playing with Lebron and AD!!! It couldn't f*cking work in a million years. They should have gone after someone else, a guy that can help right away. Have traded for Jimmy Butler. Sign DeAngelo Russell or Kemba Walker. Something. But do not let Kawhi see a team with two top 5 players in the same town and you staying put hoping that he decides to sign with your team just to... I don't know, stick it to the Lakers? Because, at this point, after winning titles with San Antonio and Toronto, he's got nothing else to prove by himself. (This is all hypothesis after my previous post... watch Kawhi sign with the Clippers and me looking like a fool in a couple of days).
