“It’s huge,” Thibodeau said of the team’s defensive depth. “You can’t overlook guys like Harkless and McGruder because you can throw those guys in and have them guard a primary scorer for 7-10 minutes. You can give them a lot of different looks. I think the great players in this league, over time, they’ll figure out one defender. “But if you throw different looks at them and put different guys at different times — it’ll also free those guys up offensively. That’s where the great value in having that type of lineup lies.”
With the Rodney McGruder claim, the LA Clippers will now have early bird rights on the soon to be free agent. The Clippers have until June 29 to submit a one-year $3M Qualifying Offer. The combination of a low cap hold ($3M or $1.9M) and early bird rights (ability to exceed the cap once room is used) makes claiming McGruder a smart basketball decision for the future. McGruder is ineligible to participate in the playoffs since he was waived after March 1.
