Rumors say that the Los Angeles Clippers front office is ready to break up the whole roster after one season.

The Los Angeles Clippers suffered one of the most crushing endings to their season in NBA history so it may be understandable that the Clippers front office is looking into revamping once again.

Reports surfacing from an anonymous agent from the Athletic say, “I heard the Clippers are going break that roster up.”

Some may understand this but on the other hand, it has only been one season. With several key players such as Kawhi and George locked into their contracts well into the 2021-22 season, it is worth it to give this roster another shot.

What led to this report coming out?

The Clippers downfall would most certainly be their horrid Game 7 performance in the WCSF.
