  • Clippers lose Beverley for rest of way

According to a report from ESPN updating us on the situation with the Patrick Beverley injury, it appears as though the Clippers have lost their point guard for the remainder of the season.

Beverley's absence means that the Clippers will be relying more on guards Austin Rivers and Lou Williams.

Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan's name has come up in trade discussions with multiple teams.

Jordan, who will become a free agent after this season is prime candidate for a trade, if the Clippers finally decide to thrown in the towel on this core and start a rebuilding process.




Beverley, whose $5 million contract in 2018-19 is nonguaranteed, had missed five straight games with a sore right knee before returning to play 22 minutes in the Clippers 107-85 loss to the New York Knicks on Monday. Before the Clippers took on the Atlanta Hawks, head coach Doc Rivers revealed Beverley was expected to miss the rest of the season.

The big man is now averaging 10.5 points, 13.8 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game on 66.1 percent shooting.

The Clippers may find that there isn't a huge market for Jordan and could face the reality of losing him for nothing at the end of the campaign if he decides to seek pastures new.

Now, with injuries plaguing the team and the highly competitive Western Conference becoming even more competitive thanks to the arrival of a number of all-stars from the East, the idea of trading Jordan for some valuable future picks or a young prospect is starting to become very attractive to the team.
