    Serge Ibaka is a better player than Montrezl Harrell. PERIOD. That's just a fact, and even more so, he is actually a Power Forward, not an undersized PF like Harrell who was demolished by Nikola Jokic in the playoffs because he was too short to guard him. Ibaka is a much better fit for the Clippers, and they didn't have to overpay him. Also, he is a top tier defender who can block shots, and make moves in the post. I think Ivica Zubac will also improve playing alongside Ibaka.

    Acquiring Ibaka saves this offseason for them, but the Clippers haven't been doing much to reward people's faith in the team. They still lost Harrell and Marc Stein is saying that Lou Will is on the chopping block now too. Clearly this team has issues that personnel changes aren't fixing.

    Steve Smith pretends to know it all by trying to be analytical. Montrez was offered more money by Charlotte and turned them down.He turned down the Clippers, why who would want to play with Bron and get hardware other than bitter Paul George or Kawhi who thinks part-time basketball doesn't win Championship s. Being there against an injured the Warriors was luck.

      Wasn't the same Contract. Hawks came up with 10 million more then theClippers for Rondo? He only got 2 years 15 million 2 years 5 million is the minimum basically that means they were never going to get Rondo

    The Ibaka Lowry pick and roll and pick and pop was one of the best in the league. If the Clippers don't find a true point guard, they will lose out on Serge's best offensive skill. He's not actually a high volume spot up 3 point shooter. His numbers are pretty good from 3 but he's streaky. His efficiency from deep was also actually down playing with Kawhi. But any Raptors fan will tell you that he's easy money from 15 feet off of a P&R.

    There's a potential trade down the line for Eric Bledsoe for the Clippers. New Orleans doesn't need him when they got Lonzo. Perhaps a Beverly and Lou Will for Bledsoe and Hart. It would make both teams better in my opinion. The Clippers need a playmaker and New Orleans could use a scorer off the bench.
