Priced Out: Is the Clippers’ Next Big Man Doomed to Leave? Although Kawhi Leonard’s injury has essentially written the book on what the Los Angeles Clippers’ 2021-22 season can be, it isn’t the only factor. Serge Ibaka’s late debut and ongoing quest to reclaim his identity have also loomed large. The key difference is that no one can truly replace Kawhi — thanks to strong starts from Ivica Zubac and Isaiah Hartenstein, Ibaka’s production has been nearly accounted for. Clippers fans were probably not surprised when he upped the ante on the former. Zubac has started a lot of games…

The Clippers have a new point guard, thanks to a trade pitch that brought in a five-time All-Star. When the Los Angeles Clippers signed Eric Bledsoe in August, there was genuine optimism that the veteran point guard could help the team stay afloat while Kawhi Leonard recovered from ACL surgery. Bledsoe’s tenure with the team, however, has so far failed to produce the desired results. Bledsoe is averaging 9.9 points and 3.4 assists per game heading into the team’s December 1 matchup with the Sacramento Kings, both of which are career lows since his first Clippers stint ended in 2013.…
