Best Potential Trade Targets for LA Clippers to Become Legit Title Contenders

The Los Angeles Clippers need to make some changes.

Following a first-round loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA playoffs, Tinseltown's stepchild is facing a crucial offseason. 

Chris Paul is an unrestricted free agent and, despite what some may be slinging, won't return to the Clippers if he doesn't believe they're genuine title contenders.

Right now, they're not. Rattling off 56 regular-season wins seems good on paper, and it is, but it means nothing when you can't rise to the occasion come playoff time.

Teams like the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs are the standard. Los Angeles doesn't quite measure up, falling just short of a status we were led to believe it already held.

Tasked with piecing together a contender without ample cap space that prompts Paul to re-sign, the Clippers have to take to the trade market. It's there they can find a player (or two) who will assist in carrying them to the next level.
