The Los Angeles Clippers aren’t the most watched team in the world, but they’ve still got some talent. While overall expectations aren’t very high in 2018-19, certain Clippers players have something to prove in one way or another.
After the losses of key pieces like Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, the Los Angeles Clippers haven’t necessarily had the most eventful offseason. However, despite the losses, they were still able to gain some much-needed cap space and cut down the roster by moving Austin Rivers and Sam Dekker, as well as pick up two promising young rookies.
Whether it has to do with contracts, role filling or draft position, multiple players have some fairly big expectations this season and a lot of pressure goes with that. If the Clippers want to be a consistent playoff team again, some of these players need to capitalize on their opportunities.
While the city of Los Angeles also bears a team with LeBron James and the attention will mostly be drawn toward them, the Clippers are generally still expected to compete for a winning record at the very least.
Bearing that in mind, here are three players that will be facing the most pressure in 2018-19. It should be made clear that none of these players have an immense amount of pressure, just the most on the team.
