The Clippers season win total is the highest in the NBA, Chris Paul is still a Thunder despite rumors of a move, and the fantasy top-5 seems to be separating from the next 5. Brandon…
July 19, 2019, 10:07 amJaMychal GreenPF, Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers have officially re-signed JaMychal Green.
Last season Green became a vital part of the Clippers' bench, serving as a perfect compliment as a catch-and-shoot floor spacer to Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell's deadly pick-and-roll game. He'll figure to play an important role again this upcoming season, but won't provide much in fantasy value. That being said, he could emerge as a potential streaming option when forward minutes open up whenever Kawhi Leonard or Paul George rest.
July 12, 2019, 10:57 pmOshae BrissettSG, Los Angeles Clippers
Oshae Brissett had 18 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one three on Friday night.
Brissett was the top scorer for the Clippers on Friday night but he's averaging 3.8 ppg so far in Summer League so this is likely just a blip on the radar.
July 12, 2019, 4:50 pmPatrick BeverleyPG, Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers have made their re-signing of Patrick Beverley official.
Beverley is back on a three-year, $40 million deal and should be the full-time starting point guard now that the Clippers have dealt Shai Gilgeous-Alexander away. It was a slow start to the season last year for Beverley, but he found his footing when the Clips starting using him in three-guard lineups. They certainly won't need to do that again given their new wing players, but Beverley's looking like a solid top-100 guy after a strong top-75 finish over the final two months of last season.

July 12, 2019, 12:16 amMfiondu KabengelePF, Los Angeles Clippers
Mfiondu Kabengele scored 15 points on 3-of-13 shooting while adding a 3-pointer, nine rebounds, a steal and committing seven fouls on Thursday.
Kabengele went 8-for-10 at the line which almost makes up for how awful he was from the field. He has a fouling problem, but the ability to rebound and stretch the floor as a big body down low could provide the Clippers with a solid backup or third string center for the regular season.
July 12, 2019, 12:13 amJerome RobinsonSG, Los Angeles Clippers
Jerome Robinson struggled with his shot in Thursday's 83-80 win over the Kings, scoring 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting while adding two triples, three rebounds and an assist.
Robinson still has a lot left to prove, but there is still some promise for him to pan out. He's an intriguing player for the Clippers, but it'll be hard for him to carve out space with an elite wing rotation. He committed five turnovers tonight and if he were to break through it would be due to his shooting.
July 12, 2019, 12:07 amAmir CoffeyPF, Los Angeles Clippers
Amir Coffey dominated in Thursday's win over the Kings with 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting while adding a 3-pointer, nine rebounds, six assists and a block.
Coffey has impressed the Clippers brass with his play and there's a good chance you'll see him on the roster during the season. The Clippers had the best offseason already by obtaining Kawhi Leonard and Paul George and they also have some young prospects who look like promising in Coffey and Kaiser Gates (11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with three triples, seven boards, three steals and a block).
July 11, 2019, 1:01 pmIvica ZubacC, Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers have made the re-signings of Ivica Zubac and Rodney McGruder official.
Zubac is believed to be returning on a four-year deal worth $28 million. He was gifted to the Clippers by the Lakers last season, and while there are concerns about how Zubes can hold up against elite competition, a young, capable center isn't a bad thing to have. We'd expect Zubac to continue to start but play less than Montrezl Harrell, and he looks like a cheap double-double guy with some blocks thrown in that could be attractive in deeper formats. McGruder, picked up off waivers from Miami last season, is back on a three-year, $15 million deal and makes for a shrewd signing. He won't play as much as he did with the Heat but gives the Clippers a backup wing that's capable of stepping into more minutes if needed. His fantasy appeal is limited, though he's one to remember if injuries strike.

July 10, 2019, 1:18 pmPaul GeorgeSF, Los Angeles Clippers
Paul George is now officially a Clipper with the team announcing his acquisition on Tuesday.
George joins Kawhi Leonard in LA while sending Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Danilo Gallinari and five future first-round picks and two pick swaps to the Thunder. Leonard and George give the Clippers one of the best — if not the best — duos in the league, with the sort of elite two-way play on the wings that has been a hallmark of the league's top teams in this recent era. PG is no stranger to playing with high-usage superstars after his stint in OKC, so we're not at all worried about his fantasy outlook. As long as his shoulder is healed up by opening night there's no reason to treat George as anything other than a first-round fantasy talent.

July 10, 2019, 11:47 amKawhi LeonardSF, Los Angeles Clippers
Shams Charania of the Athletic is reporting that Kawhi Leonard has signed a three-year, $103M maximum contract with the Clippers, with a player option in the third season.
Leonard has signed a two-plus-one contract in order to align his deal with Paul George’s one, with both players having the ability to enter free agency again in 2021. The Clippers gave up a lot of future picks as well as Shai Gilgeous-Alexander in order to acquire PG and pair him with Kawhi and the pressure is on as, if things don’t turn up as expected, both All-Stars could hit the open market again in just a couple years.

July 10, 2019, 9:09 amAmir CoffeyPF, Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers announced on Tuesday that they have signed rookie Amir Coffey to a two-way contract.
Coffey went undrafted following his junior season with the Minnesota Golden Gophers where he averaged a team-best 16.6 points per game. He is currently a member of the Clippers’ summer-league team in Las Vegas and apparently has impressed the team enough to earn a roster spot. Every NBA team is permitted to sign a couple two-way players. Coffey will split his team between the Clippers and the Agua Caliente of the G League.

July 10, 2019, 1:36 amJerome RobinsonSG, Los Angeles Clippers
Jerome Robinson hit five threes on his way to 17 points in 28 minutes in a 90-72 Summer League win over the Wizards on Tuesday.
Robinson is probably still best knows as a player that was drafted much higher than expected, and with the Clippers' recent moves, there's a significant log-jam of scorers and wings on the team. If they lose a handful of 3-point-shooting guards, Robinson could step in and offer that skill, but he doesn't appear close to fantasy relevance.
July 10, 2019, 1:29 amTerance MannPG, Los Angeles Clippers
Terance Mann was one assist shy of a triple-double in Summer League play on Tuesday, going for 15 points (7-for-9 FGs, 0-for-1 FTs), 11 rebounds, nine assists and a triple-one in 28 minutes.
That's an impressive line for Mann, Summer League or not. You may have heard that the Clippers recently signed a pair of wings, so it's not like he's going to get big minutes as a rookie. But the Clippers are likely expecting Mann, who is 23 and played four years at Florida State, to be ready to step in when needed. His fellow Seminole, Mfiondu Kabengele, had 13 points, seven rebounds and four blocks in 23 minutes in this win.
The terms of Kawhi Leonard's deal with the Clippers are official, and he's only guaranteed to be in town for two years. Brandon Marcus, resident Clippers expert and host of the soon-to-be-released Clippers podcast, and…
