The Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder are two teams heading in completely different directions. Oklahoma City is looking to rebuild while Los Angeles is hoping to take the next step toward a championship in the upcoming season. This does not mean that they cannot get together for a trade to help both sides.
It was a disappointing end to the season during the restart for Los Angeles. Heading into the offseason, they needed to improve the point guard position and have not done so just yet.
Los Angeles signed Paul George to a five-year extension so it is clear that they want to keep the duo of George and Kawhi Leonard around. If they are still interested in improving at point guard, there are a few options.
Oklahoma City traded Chris Paul to the Phoenix Suns at the beginning of the offseason. They are in a position to get younger and rebuild using draft capital. Danilo Gallinari is another name that left this offseason. The plan in Oklahoma City is clear and Sam Presti is still looking for moves to continue his plan.
This trade would benefit both sides in what their hopes are for the upcoming season. Let’s take a look at a potential deal that could happen between Oklahoma City and Los Angeles.
