Sunday was lacking in headlines, but both of LA’s basketball teams have been rather busy in preparation for the stretch run.
The Los Angeles Clippers announced on Sunday that they would be signing center Joakim Noah through the 2021 season. While he was originally signed to a 10-day contract with the team, that quickly turned into a deal for the remainder of the season and now for another year. Noah has always been a scrappy player, and his energy will be a welcome addition to a Clippers team that always plays with a chip on their shoulder.
The Lakers, on the other hand, are in the process of possibly signing an extra player for the Orlando games. After Avery Bradley announced his decision to sit the remainder of the season out, the team began to quickly search for a backup option. There is no replacing what Bradley brought to the team, but there are a few players who could still be slot into the rotation. One such player is former Laker, Nick Young, who the team has reportedly reached out to. His time in LA ended rather unceremoniously, but a reunion could provide Young with a chance to win his second NBA title after winning in 2018 with the Warriors.
