We’re live here at Summer League in Las Vegas to see if the Clippers can find a few players to invite to training camp. While there are a lot of nice talents at Summer League, finding a legitimate center may be tough due to positional scarcity.
Of the 452 players invited to the Orlando and Las Vegas Summer Leagues, only 76 had the assigned possibility to play center in at least some capacity (16.8%). Of the 76 forward/centers, 41 were positionally designated exclusively as center (9%). Of course, teams fill spots based on their regular season roster needs, but even in summer league the waning of centers is in full effect.
In other news, it’s been reported that Willie Green has signed with the Clippers, but those reports have since been retracted. We’ll keep you posted on the potential reunion of Chris Paul and Willie Green as soon as we hear more.
