Point Guard Getty Images Chris Paul- I know for a fact that Chris Paul will be the starting point guard for the Clippers for a long time still. He is the best point guard in the league and will be for a long time. Paul averaged 19.1 points and 10.7 assists last season. Those numbers are insane for a point guard. Point guards usually get assists and a couple of points but Chris Paul has the whole package. Shooting Guard Getty Images JJ Redick- JJ Redick is an unbelievable three-point shooter. Redick has really developed into the Clippers offense last season. He averaged 15.2 points and 2.2 assists. He is one of the best spot up shooters in the NBA today. You could say Jamal Crawford should be the starting shooting guard but he is a better sixth man so that’s the reason why Redick is the starter. Small Forward Associated Press Luol Deng- Yes, I think that Luol Deng will go to the Clippers this offseason. One of the main positions the Clippers are missing is a small forward and besides LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony in the free agency, Deng is the best one. Deng would really help out this Clipper team because they only have Matt Barnes and Reggie Bullock right now. Also they have Danny Granger, but he has not been a decent player for a couple of years now. Getting Deng would also make the Clippers a more balanced team because it was very lob sided with only Chris Paul and Blake Griffin being the only greats out there. Deng would be a wonderful fit for the Clippers. Power Forward Getty Images Blake Griffin- In a couple of years when Chris Paul is retired, Blake Griffin will be the face of this Clipper team. He is only 25 and already in his prime. He averaged 24.1 points and 9.5 rebounds. He was outstanding last year for this Clipper team. Since I have the Clippers signing Deng, I don’t think that Griffin will be putting up 24.1 points per game. I still think he will average 9.5 rebounds or even more. He will average about 15 points and 10 rebounds in my mind with the signing of Deng. All in all, Blake Griffin is an outstanding player for the Clippers and will be one for a long time. Center Getty Images DeAndre Jordan- DeAndre Jordan was a break out player in the NBA last season and I think that we all saw that coming. In the 2012 season he averaged 8.5 points and 7.2 rebounds. Those numbers are decent, but not good. He looked like he could do more so last season I think that we worked himself harder. Last season he averaged 10.4 points and 13.6 rebounds. Those are amazing stats for a center. Also Jordan is still only 25 years old. He can only get better from here.
