Cilppers Trade Austin Rivers

The Los Angeles Clippers have traded guard Austin Rivers to the Washington Wizards for center Marcin Gortat.

Rivers is coming off a career-high of averaging 15 points per game. He just opt-in the last year of his deal that will pay him $12 million dollars in the 2018-2019 season.

It is clear why the Clippers wanted Gortat, they have no idea on rather the All-Star center Jordan will remain with the team or test free agency. Gortat will either be a really good backup center or a quality starting center for the Clippers
The Wizards will use Rivers as a premium guard off the bench to replace Wall and/or Beal throughout the game.
