Mitch McGary, Michigan, 6'10", PF/C, Sophomore
The Clippers don't have much to offer up front behind Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. McGary could play the 4 or 5, where he has the size, instincts, agility and strength to make things happen in the paint. He isn't much of a scorer, but his ability to clean the glass, pass from the interior and run the floor give him high-end role-player potential.
Vasilije Micic, Serbia, 6'5", PG, 1994
According to Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com, Darren Collison will "forgo the second year of his contract that would have paid him $1.9 million to become an unrestricted free agent this summer."
"Darren is definitely opting out," Haynes' source said. That means the Clippers will need a point guard. If Elfrid Payton and Shabazz Napier are off the board, LA might want to take a look at Vasilije Micic, a crafty pass-first point guard with great size and a natural feel for the position. There isn't much upside here, but with similar tools and strengths as Jose Calderon, Micic could be an under-the-radar sleeper at the end of Round 1.
Clint Capela, Switzerland, 6'11", PF, 1994
Capela is more of a long-term option, but his incredible blend of size, athleticism, hops and mobility plays to this team's strengths. He also fills a position of need, given the minimal depth behind Griffin and Jordan.
