Kawhi Leonard "privately has clamored" for the Clippers to upgrade their point guard position.
Patrick Beverley only played 51 games this season and has a lengthy injury history, which isn't ideal for a 32-year-old with a physical style of play. Beverley averaged just 3.6 assists in 2019-20, while ostensible backup Reggie Jackson averaged 3.2 dimes in only 17 appearances. The team's leader is assists was sixth-man Lou Williams (5.6 per game), and the PG spot is a problem coach Tyronn Lue and the front office are sure to address this offseason. Oct 18 3:20 pm (EST)
