Backup Point Guards that are possibly attainable.

These are backup point guards that are possibly attainable for the BAE, MLE, or Veterans Minimum that are currently available this coming free agency. (Not in any order)


1. Darren Collison: 11.4 PPG, 3.7 APG, 2.4 RPG, 1.2 SPG, 46.7% FG, 37.6% 3PT

Majority of Clipsnation wants DC back, and that's because he was fantastic playing behind CP3, next to CP3, and for CP3 when he was injured. DC is a good scorer off the bench. By no means DC is a big guard, but he uses his speed to his advantage to get to the lane and finish. Obviously most guards are bigger and stronger than him when he guards them, but he uses his speed to be a pesky defender and annoy the crap out of them. Hopefully he'll come back and take the BAE.


2. Shaun Livingston: 8.3 PPG, 3.2 APG, 1.2 SPG, 48.3% FG

I would love to have Shaun Livingston back with the Clippers! He did a wonderful job on the Nets as a starter/backup PG, backup SG and played SF once in a while. He's a 6'7 PG that has great vision on the court, decent ball handling skills that doesn't turnover the ball as much, and he can play either Guard position, and can defend PGs, SGs, and SFs (sometimes) with his annoying length. Maybe he might be willing to return to the team that drafted him? I'm glad he had the opportunity to show people he still has some game in him with the Nets last season! Take the BAE PLEASE!!


3. Kirk Hinrich: 9.1 PPG, 3.9 APG, 1.1 SPG, 39.3% FG, 35.1% 3PT

He's a decent backup PG, and can play the SG spot once in a while. He's an okay scorer, with a decent assist game. He's not the best defender out there, but he always plays some hard nose tough defense on his opponent. Captain Kirk is a team player, a scrapper, and unselfish. Can do the little things to help win a game


4. Jordan Crawford: 11.0 PPG, 3.5 APG, 0.6 SPG, 41.5% FG, 31.6 3PT

Jordan Crawford can play either Guard position. He's pretty much a Jamal Crawford type of player. Crawford is known more for his offensive ability than anything else, so don't expect much from on the defensive end. He does have a decent passing game if you look at his Boston stats before he was traded. His stock value went down after he was traded to GS since he had to play behind Curry, Klay, Blake, and Iggy. If Jamal is to be traded at least we would have another Crawford to come in.


5. Devin Harris: 7.9 PPG, 4.5 APG, 0.7 SPG, 37.8% FG, 30.7% 3PT

Harris is mainly a backup PG. He isn't that great anymore and lost a step or two, but we can't be picky now can we?He can score once in a while, and has a decent passing game. Pretty much a good team player, and can be had for the Vets minimum.


6. Steve Blake: 6.9 PPG, 5.6 APG, 1.0 SPG, 37.7% FG, 37.6% 3PT

Blake mainly plays the PG spot, but can play the SG once in a while. The good thing about Blake is that he's capable of starting if CP3 ever gets injured (knocks on wood). He has good court vision which makes his passing skills pretty good for a backup. Also has a three point shot 37.6%. If he's willing to come for the BAE that would be great.


7. Jerryd Bayless: 9.3 PPG, 2.7 APG, 0.8 SPG, 40.2% FG, 35.8% 3PT

Can play either guard position, but mainly PG duties. Not much of a defender, but is a scorer and can create his own shot. Not much to say about him. Will come cheap.


8. Delonte West: 9.6 PPG, 3.2 APG, 1.3 SPG, 46.1% FG, 35.5% 3PT (11-12 NBA season)

West can play either guard spot. Hasn't had a good couple of years in the NBA, hasn't even played in the NBA actually. He's been playing in China. West can score, and is a pretty good defender. Not sure if he still has it in him, but in China he averaged 23.73PPG, 5.9 APG, and 2.52 SPG. If he can give us half of that that would be great. He does have some baggage, and psychological issues. He's stated that he's been getting help, and has matured as a player. He has history with Doc, and is playing in the summer league with the team. A high risk/ high rewards player. Vets minimum, that's it.

Don't forget, we can't be picky with the limited budget the Clippers have to work with.
