Who will the team’s first call be?
90 minutes until free agency ... Marcus Morris likely one of the first people LAC reaches out to. As Lawrence Frank recounted in February, "our first phone call was to Kawhi" during 2019's free agency. "Our second phone call was to Marcus.” https://t.co/llS3gJGCEv— Andrew Greif (@AndrewGreif) November 20, 2020
Until the fun really gets started, here are some rumors and news that have popped up in recent days:
- The Clippers showed interest in Kris Dunn, who is an unrestricted free agent after three years with the Bulls.
- Rajon Rondo wants to the play for the Clippers, and the interest is mutual.
- Evan Fournier wants to join the Clippers, but his arrival wouldn’t make much sense for LA.
- The Clippers signed Jordan Ford and Malik Fitts out of Saint Mary’s to training camp deals.
- Jay Scrubb, who the team drafted at no. 55 after trading up in the draft for the sixth straight season, will be on a two-way contract for 2020-21. The L.A. Times reports that Amir Coffey will be the team’s other two-way player for the second consecutive year.
