The Clippers should once again be a top contender in 2020-21 but there are significant question marks in the frontcourt with Montrezl Harrell and Marcus Morris becoming free agents.
Oturu provides some insurance as a proven rebounder and shot-blocker who could earn a spot in the rotation next season alongside Ivica Zubac.
