Clippers Trade Deadline Primer

4

Posted by Charlie Widdoes Asked to reflect on last Wednesday’s loss to the Nets, Vinny Del Negro spoke of missed rotations and the need to make shots, but he also praised his team’s effort in fighting back from an 18-point second half deficit. Slow starts had become more frequent, so the following question was, "what is this team missing?" His answer: "Nothing." With Thursday’s trade deadline approaching, Neil Olshey would probably take a slightly different view of things. Del Negro’s rhetoric about needing more from his starters early in games underscores the bigger issue — that he needs more from his starters, period. He’s operating without a shooting guard and a troika of small forwards that is struggling even by recent Clipper small forward standards.
