The Los Angeles Clippers quietly filled out their roster with three veterans who should help LA take a step forward next season. Not necessarily help them step any closer to an NBA Title specifically, but certainly an incremental step forward in the least. The Clippers didn't make any moves you would categorize as major this summer, but each of the three moves they did make could certainly be categorized as solid. Chris Paul, the prize of last year's off-season drama in Clipper-land, actually said the moves were outstanding. He was overstating things some, but that's his job I guess as a leader.
This from a conversation with Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype:
How do you feel about the Clippers' offseason additions? Grant Hill, Jamal Crawford, Chauncey Billups...
CP: We had a big offseason. Our front office did an outstanding job bringing some players in. I'm excited to get back and play with my teammates.
Were you active recruiting players?
CP: Yeah, no question....
