Don MacLean: Clippers now ‘in the mix’ in West
MacLean thinks the Clippers shouldn’t be too worried about what they gave up for Paul. “I don’t think it really matters, it’s what they got,” MacLean said. “We know Chris Paul is a player.”
MacLean said that the NBA didn’t nix the trade because he had a problem with the Lakers. He just thinks that the Clippers offer made the Hornets more attractive to potential buyers.
“I think they’re in the mix in the West,” MacLean said. “I’m not going to say they’re the favorite. They’re at worst a top-four team.”
MacLean thinks the Clippers will make another move to get a shooting guard. They may package some of their multiple point guards.
