This may seem like a strange choice, but take a look at this logic.
Everyone knows the Clippers are cursed with injuries. This likely means that no big time free agent will go to Staples Center’s loser stepchild.
Ergo, the Clippers will have a lot of money, and no one to spend it on. That’s where Korver comes in.
Knowing Donald Sterling, he is determined to spend all his cap room this summer, no matter who he signs. If Korver wants to go to the Clippers, he will probably get a bigger paycheck than anywhere else.
But with that fatty deal, Korver will get some PT. The only starting position not locked up in L.A. is small forward since they traded Al Thornton to the Wizards. Korver could start right away, even though he’s only started three times since 2006.
He could also get really lucky. With Baron Davis, Eric Gordon, Blake Griffin and Chris Kaman, the Clippers, on paper, are stacked. If they were to use their money on solid bench players and stay healthy, they could be a perennial playoff team.
Or they could be the Clippers as usual.
What’s more likely?
