The Los Angeles Clippers are expected to make a move for a star center this season. After making efforts to land the star point guard throughout the summer, the Clippers finally managed to land James Harden two weeks back. But that was the only good thing that happened to them for a while, as they went on to lose 5 games in a row after the arrival of the 34-year-old. They have managed to pull themselves back in the game and have beaten the Houston Rockets and the San Antonio Spurs after that. What are the Clippers missing? Why aren’t they getting results even after landing their desired player?
Well, it takes a while for a player to settle down in a new team. Now, James is balling like he always used to. It’s time for the Clippers to make another star signing to boost their chances for the title. Ivica Zubac is in good form, but can the Clippers make an upgrade? Should they acquire a star center? These are three-star centers we think that the Clippers can acquire.
The Hawks’ Clint Capela to the Los Angeles Clippers
The Hawks’ #15 might be on the radar of the Clippers already. The 29-year-old is eager to part ways with his current team. The Clippers can offer Ivica Zubac, Bones Hyland and PJ Tucker in exchange for the center. Capela’s defensive skill set attracts a lot of teams towards him.
The Los Angeles Clippers are 6-8 season.
3 of those wins are against the San Antonio Spurs 😬

The Pelicans’ Jonas Valanciunas to the Los Angeles Clippers
The next target for the Clippers can be the 31-year-old center from the New Orleans Pelicans. The Clippers are likely to offer Ivica Zubac, Bones Hyland, and Amir Coffey in exchange for the Pelicans’ #17. Jonas leaves his impact on both ends of the floor, and he also offers great shooting from beyond the arc.

The Bulls’ Nikola Vucevic to the Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers can try to land the Bulls’ center by offering Ivica Zubac, Bones Hyland and PJ Tucker in exchange. The 33 year old center is likely to get traded by the Bulls since they are going to rebuild after resisting to do that for 10 years.
Who will the Clippers add to their roster? Will they win a championship? We’ll keep you updated.
