The LA Clippers came into the NBA season knowing they may not be contenders this season as they await Kawhi Leonard’s return from a torn ACL. They still had a go-to player in Paul George to rely on, but they would not be nearly as dangerous.

Without many assets to make a deal, the LA Clippers will have to get creative when making a trade if that is the route they choose to take. Could the Houston Rockets be one of the teams that the Clippers call?
