The Los Angeles Clippers have established themselves as one of the best teams in the NBA. They are currently 43-22 and comfortably in the top four of the Western Conference. This will continue through the postseason and once the year is done, the front office will have some decisions to make.
The biggest one will be around Kawhi Leonard. He is eligible to opt out of his contract this summer and become a free agent. It is likely that the two sides come to an agreement on the open market. Leonard has referenced this move for business purposes rather than wanting out of Los Angeles.

Los Angeles is one of the top teams in the league but they still have some glaring holes. These are areas that need to be fixed moving forward. It will be interesting to see what happens if the Clippers have another disappointing finish to the season.
