Los Angeles Clippers 2014 Draft Report Card


The Sports Network

(SportsNetwork.com) - This was a curious draft decision by the Los Angeles Clippers, because they took essentially the same player they did last year.

In 2013, it was Reggie Bullock and he didn't get much run for Doc Rivers' squad this season.

On Thursday, Wilcox was the lucky winner. Both are great shooters, but the Clippers backcourt is crowded with Chris Paul, J.J. Redick, Jamal Crawford, Jared Dudley, Willie Green and Bullock.

Where does Wilcox fit in? Hard to say and the Clips had other needs. Talent- wise, and rating-wise, he was probably the best available, but Wilcox doesn't provide anything LA didn't already have.

Grade: C
