Los Angeles Clippers Rumors
Jovan Buha: The six players the Clippers worked out today, a league source told @TheAthleticLA: – Nick Weiler-Babb (PG, Iowa St.) – Chris Clemons (PG, Campbell) – Charles Matthews (SF, Mich.) – Terry Harris (SG, North Carolina AT&T) – Mamadi Diakite (C, Virginia) – Kenny Wooten (C, Oregon)
Jovan Buha: North Carolina AT&T shooting guard Terry Harris, the 6-foot-6 younger brother of Tobias Harris, will work out today for the Clippers, per a league source. He has several other team workouts scheduled within the next few weeks.
Arash Markazi on Jimmy Butler’s free agency: “The Clippers, from what I’ve been told, do not want to sign him.”
Brantley has already worked out for the Brooklyn Nets, Boston Celtics, Memphis Grizzlies, Minnesota Timberwolves and the Charlotte Hornets. The person told Sixers Wire that Brantley will next work out for the Phoenix Suns as well as the L.A. Clippers before meeting with Philly.
Kendrick Perkins, who was a teammate of Durant’s in Oklahoma City and played for Doc Rivers in Boston, further fueled the Durant-to-the-Clippers talk when he sat down with Kristine Leahy on her show “Fair Game.” “Don’t be surprised if K.D. signs with the Clippers,” Perkins said. “Everybody is screaming New York but do not be surprised if K.D. signs and plays for Doc. I don’t even have to recruit him. He likes the organization. He likes Doc Rivers.”
“You can see Kevin Durant going there,” Perkins said Wednesday while talking to Colin Cowherd on FS1. “They’re in L.A. He can flourish and be himself and it would be his team. I would love to see K.D. play for a coach like Doc Rivers and assistant coaches like Rex, Sam Cassel and Armond Hill. They have a great group of guys. The way Doc draws up plays with his play calling, I could just imagine the plays he would draw up for Kevin Durant.”
