In the summer, the Celtics were looking to trade Malcolm Brogdon to the Los Angeles Clippers in a three-way deal to acquire 7’3″ forward Kristaps Porziņģis. The deal fell through because the Clippers failed to get a physical done on Brogdon in time. But the Celtics still succeeded in their pursuit of attaining the big man, losing guard Marcus Smart in the process. However, the reigning Sixth Man of the Year was not happy about it. Although the Celtics got their wish, it frosted the relationship between the team and Brogdon, who is reportedly angry about the situation.

How does Brogdon fit into the Clippers’ roster?

With this trade, the Clippers can add what their roster lacks the most: a point guard who can create for teammates. Malcolm would fit seamlessly into the rotation. The 6’5″ guard is coming off a season where he averaged 14.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 3.7 assists, shooting at 44.4 percent from deep and 48.4 percent from the field. He is a versatile defensive guard who can contribute offensively in on- and off-ball roles. The Clippers have plenty of big men on the roster between Ivica Zubac and Mason Plumlee. They could use some depth in the backcourt.
