How to Fit New L.A. Clippers Additions with Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and Co.

Newcomers like Willie Green must find their niche around Blake Griffin and Chris Paul.

Over the course of the offseason, the Los Angeles Clippers completely overhauled their roster.

On the surface they might look largely the same given that their starting five from a season ago are all back (though Chauncey Billups is still sidelined with that Achilles injury), but the second unit is filled with fresh, new faces.

The new kids on the block are anything but kids. They're grizzled veterans, and they've all been around the block (and around the league). 

Former standouts like Lamar Odom, Jamal Crawford and Grant Hill have come aboard, as have seasoned rotation stalwarts like Matt Barnes, Willie Green and Ryan Hollins.

Having such depth is a blessing during an NBA season where injuries —and slumps— can crop up at any time. 

But can it be too much? The trick for Vinny Del Negro and the players themselves will be to find the perfect role to complement Chris Paul and Blake Griffin.

If the Clippers are able to brew the right blend in the rotation, they'll be a dangerous team come playoff time.

Let's take a look at how the new guys can fit in next to their All-Star teammates.
