Los Angeles Clippers Rumors
The LA Clippers have offered Oklahoma City Thunder executive Michael Winger its general manager’s job, league sources told ESPN. A deal could be finalized soon, league sources said. Winger, an assistant GM/team counsel for the Thunder, would report directly to new Clippers President of Basketball Operations, Lawrence Frank.
Fred Katz: Thunder have two assistant GMs along with Troy Weaver but this will be a big loss for them. Winger is very well-respected.
Brad Turner: Can confirm Clippers have signed center Marshall Plumlee to a partially guaranteed contract, per source.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent center Marshall Plumlee has agreed to a partially guaranteed deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources tell ESPN.
David ‘Dubi’ Pick: Source: Brandon Bass is leaving the NBA to sign a $2 million deal in China with the Liaoning Leopards.
There were reports this week which pegged the Clippers as Irving’s latest team of choice, however, a league source said recently that without the inclusion of a third team, there didn’t seem to be a combination of assets the Clippers had that could compete with anything currently being linked to Irving. While Irving may have preferences where he ultimately lands, he does not have much leverage in where the Cavs ultimately trade him.
