The LA Clippers have revamped their backcourt this season. The process began in the 2021 NBA Draft, where they added three prospects to their roster in the backcourt.

In a trade with the New York Knicks, Los Angeles acquired the No. 21 overall pick in exchange for the No. 25 pick and a future second-round pick. They picked Keon Johnson out of Tennessee with that selection.

In the second round, the Clippers made two more deals. They acquired the draft rights to Jason Preston from the Orlando Magic in exchange for a 2026 second-round pick and cash. Brandon Boston, who was selected by the New Orleans Pelicans, was also traded to Los Angeles for a 2026 second-round pick and cash.

They were not done there, as the Clippers also traded away Patrick Beverley and Rajon Rondo, along with Daniel Oturu, to the Memphis Grizzlies. In exchange for them, the Clippers received Eric Bledsoe, who began his NBA career with the Clippers.
