Clippers interested in Wesley Johnson

The Clippers’ needs are obvious: more depth at small forward, a better backup big man for Griffin and Jordan, youth, athleticism and defense. It’s going to be hard to meaningfully address all those needs with only minimum contracts to offer. The Clippers have interest in Lakers swingman Wes Johnson, according to sources. They also have last year’s first-round pick — small forward C.J. Wilcox — on their bench. Not exactly needle-moving moves.

Wesley Johnson wants to stay a Laker

The Lakers lamented Johnson’s inconsistency last season when he played both at small forward and power forward in Mike D’Antoni’s small-ball system. But the Lakers still re-signed him to a one-year deal for around $1 million after he posted previous career-highs in points (9.1), shooting percentage (42.5) and rebounds (4.4) Johnson has appreciated Kobe Bryant’s mentorship and playing strictly at small forward under Scott. “I want to definitely stay here,” said Johnson about his pending free agency. “I like coach Scott and the whole coaching staff. I love it here. I definitely want to be a part of when they get back.”
