The Los Angeles Clippers focused a lot of their attention this NBA offseason on improving the backcourt. Almost all of the transactions they made involved a player listed as a guard.

Los Angeles ended up with three selections during the 2021 NBA Draft. All three ended up being guards.

The Clippers traded up for the draft rights to Keon Johnson in the first round and then acquired the draft rights to Jason Preston and Brandon Boston Jr. in the second round.

Later in the offseason, the team traded point guards Patrick Beverley and Rajon Rondo, along with Daniel Oturu, to the Memphis Grizzlies, getting Eric Bledsoe in return.
