Report: Clippers Looking to Trade Up in NBA Draft; Have Their Eyes Set on New Franchise Player

The Clippers have two lottery picks, but they are late lottery picks, with that being said a team that has multiple needs could be interested in moving down.

It is easy to blow one first round pick, harder to blow two (not impossible though).

The Ringer has the details.

The Clippers are open to moving up in the draft, according to multiple league executives. They’re armed with picks nos. 12 and 13, and have the assets to get creative. A front office exec said that Michael Porter Jr. is a possible target for the Clippers, who could slide the forward into their modernized system as a go-to scorer. Funnily enough, later that day, Clippers owner Steve Ballmer paused his own interview session with reporters to stand and listen behind a media scrum around Porter.

Something to keep an eye out on as we get closer to the draft.
