LA Clippers guard Patrick Beverley told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on The Woj Pod that he had requested a trade from the Houston Rockets before his inclusion into the Chris Paul blockbuster in June. “It comes kind of surprising to people that ask, ‘Why did they trade you?’ I asked for it,” Beverley said on the podcast, released on Friday. “I asked for a bigger opportunity, a bigger chance to display my skills on a high level and I was fortunate that the Rockets did really good with me and [put] me in a situation where I can thrive and be successful. They could have really dumped me anywhere, but they did right, and I respect them a lot for it.”

He already has built his reputation on the defensive end, having had success guarding Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry and others. But Beverley has said he is looking forward to a new kind of opportunity with the Clippers, one that could showcase more of his offensive skills. “I’m put in a situation where I’m truly blessed to see what the limit is with me,” Beverley said. “I understand coach will push me. It’s going to be fun. My mindset is all about winning. I’m a really black-and-white guy. There’s no grey area. I’m coming to win basketball games. I didn’t come here to look good doing it.”
Clippers’ executives spoke to the 28-year-old Gallinari on Sunday and tried to sell him on a revamped lineup that includes the re-signed Blake Griffin and newly acquired point guard Patrick Beverley. It’s unclear how much Gallinari, who made $15.5 million last season, is looking for in his next contract, but it’s certainly more than the $8.4 million mid-level exception the Clippers could offer.
