Patrick Patterson had a promising stint as a starter for the LA Clippers. But as the season progressed, Patterson's utility reduced, and he hardly played any minutes in the 2020 NBA playoffs.

Patrick Patterson is now 31 years old and is an unrestricted free agent. After a season where he averaged just 4.9 points per game, the LA Clippers will most likely let him walk away in the off-season.


#4 Reggie Jackson

Only three years ago, Reggie Jackson averaged over 15 points and shot close to 37% from the 3-point line. However, since then, there's been a rapid decline in his on-court performance as Jackson averaged less than ten points per game this season.

Though he helped elevate the LA Clippers' perimeter defense to a certain degree, his flaws were exposed in the 2020 NBA playoffs, which could be reason enough for the LA Clippers not to renew the 30-year-old's contract.

If the LA Clippers want to bring in another star to the team, they'll likely have to send a package revolving around Landry Shamet to the other team.

With Shamet, along with Ivica Zubac, among the only 'tradable' assets in the team, the Clippers will have to sacrifice the youngster to land a player who could help the franchise immediately.

Shamet is only 23 years old and has the potential to become one of the best 3-point shooters in the league. According to recent NBA trade rumors, there's demand for Shamet in the market, and the LA Clippers will try to get the best out of his market value.
