The Clippers Will Be Active in the Trade Market

In a somewhat surprising move, the Clippers decided to match the Pelicans offer sheet for free agent forward Tyrone Wallace. The reason this is of interest is because that now gives the Clippers 17 guaranteed contracts for the 2018-19 NBA season which screams two words: trade coming.
