The Los Angeles Clippers will be among the teams that will fight for the NBA championship, according to Draymond Green.
The current champion and star forward of the Golden State Warriors views the LA frachise as a legit title contender next season.
“Ty Lue is arguably one of the best coaches in the NBA. Arguably the best. Someone can make that argument. And then they have great players.
Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, the guys they’re filling in around them,” Draymond Green said during the recent crossover of his podcast with JJ Redick’s, via Sports Illustrated.

After missing the playoffs last season, the Clippers are expected to return to title contention. With Leonard and George healthy, the squad has its sights set on the top of the West.
To do so, the Clippers will also need to bolster their roster. Ahead of free agency, they are expected to land John Wall, while they have agreed to a contract extension with Ivica Zubac.
