At long last, the Clippers are holding an introductory press conference for Kawhi Leonard and Paul George today. The Clippers signed Leonard, the reigning NBA Finals MVP, in free agency and completed a massive trade to acquire George, who finished third in NBA MVP voting last season.
With the two moves, the Clippers went from a fringe playoff team to the favorites to win the championship next season.
Today, we get to hear from the Clippers’ new stars, alongside Clippers chairman Steve Ballmer, president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank, and head coach Doc Rivers.
The press conference is scheduled to begin at noon pacific time, and will reportedly be televised on Prime Ticket, ESPN, and NBATV. It’s unclear if the Clippers will be streaming on their social accounts.
Clips Nation’s Robert Flom will be at the press conference today. For live updates, follow him @RichHomieFlom as well as @ClipsNationSBN.
