I Los Angeles Clippers have reached 6 consecutive losses with last night’s knockout against Denver, including 5 since they fielded James Harden. Tyronn Lue is still trying to find the square in the rotations and has defined this “the biggest challenge of his coaching career.”. There is no shortage of talent in the Clippers, but at the moment the team is not well amalgamated. Lue in recent hours reportedly told Bones Hyland The decision to oust him from the rotation: the point guard is keeping 11.8 average points coming off the bench, but has totaled 0 minutes in the last two outings.
Not only that: under the basket, where the Clippers lost Mason Plumlee for a couple of months, there is incoming Daniel Theis. The long German has played little or nothing so far with the Indiana Pacers and has reached a buyout agreement in recent hours. Once a free agent, he will sign right with LA and be the backup to Ivica Zubac.
ESPN Sources: Veteran center Daniel Theis has agreed on a contract buyout with the Indiana Pacers and now plans to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers assuming he clears waivers. Clippers recently lost backup C Mason Plumlee to a sprained MCL for several weeks. pic.twitter.com/m5y55TwQ9q
