The Los Angeles Lakers have traded their 21 year-old Croatian to the Los Angeles Clippers Thursday afternoon. Zubac will now head down the hall at Staples Center and play center for the Clippers with four months remaining on his rookie contract. This summer, Zubac becomes a restricted free agent which means the Clippers can match any contract another team offers him.
Zubac was playing the best basketball of his life over the past two months and will add size to a Clippers side which just traded Tobias Harris and Boban Marjanovic to the 76ers. He should receive ample playing time for a Clippers team that is on the brink of making the playoffs, currently sitting in eighth place in the West.
I chatted with Zubac hours after the trade. He simply said, “I’m just happy to stay in LA.”
Zubac gets traded to the San Pedro Clippers.Should of asked to go Houston or San Antonio, less state income taxes than California. Hezonja looks like he is still developing and not playing with good fundamentals. Doncic comes in the league with instant success while Hezonja can’t establish himself, his shot or his presence.
Great trade for clippers. Rightfully so, media and experts have trashed the Lakers on this move and hailed the clippers. Only will be relevant though if zubac can continue to produce
You have to give your big homie even more of our support the rest of the season.
Like to see Zubac embrace this opportunity.
Jerry West is the master.
Now I am going to have to check out a Clippers game.
Man seeing Dončić do him once again baffles me why we can’t produce a lead guard and Slovenia has TWO!!
Hezonja has ZERO game?
I’d like to see at least one playmaking lead guard for us.
Does anyone give a shit?
Anyway, I was watching Bujica again today, and saw that one of his reporters asked Kobila Grubby Kitarovic what she thought of her friend rabid atheist and communist Budimir Loncar being in the running to recieve the Medal of the City of Zagreb, needless to say she refused to answer it.
You being a big fan of Kolinda and her great defender I was wondering what your thoughts are on Kolinda’s great friend Budimir Loncar possibly recieving the Medal of Zagreb?
Jerry West is a genius with his trades.
The Clippers are in a very good position to snag some free agents or simply trade for one with all their picks and youth they’ve compiled.
