The front offices of the Los Angeles Clippers and head coach Tyronn Lue fully agree on the need to provide greater depth and versatility to their inside game, as reported by the Los Angeles Clippers journalist. Yahoo SportsJake Fischer.
Ivica Zubac is currently the only center traditional in the squad, so Lue and his coaching staff have regularly relied on forwards like Nicolas Batum and Marcus Morris to replace the Croatian and put smaller quintets into practice. Moses Brown, under a dual contract, is emerging as another possible option but the Clippers are only allowing him 4.7 minutes per game.
Thus, Fischer shares two of the main candidates currently being considered by the Los Angeles management: Myles Turner and Jakob Poeltl. About the first one, the media already shared a similar report Bleacher Report last week, while Poeltl ranks as one of the main commercial assets that the San Antonio Spurs have.
However, the same journalist points out that the Clippers do not close the doors to smaller and faster interiors that are capable of also defending exteriors at specific times, so it is not entirely clear what other names they are monitoring. A profile in which, perhaps, Richaun Holmes, whom the Sacramento Kings have put on the market, can fit.
