Clipperblog.com, the official blog of the Los Angeles Clippers, offered its perspective on the team’s second round selections of Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie.

The author had some nice things to say about Thompkins’ upside (not so much about Leslie), however, he does hint that there is “not a high probability that both will make the opening day roster”.

ESPN’s Andy Katz, who was a big promoter of the Georgia Bulldogs last off-season, mentioned both of the former Dawgs in his recent article “Draft decision not looking good for some”.  He too eludes to the fact that Thompkins and Leslie will have to “earn roster spots”.

In grading the Los Angeles Clippers’ draft, Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated gave them a “B-“, while CBS Sportsline’s Jeff Goodman could only afford the Clips a “C”.

And on a positive note, with the addition of Thompkins and Leslie to the NBA, Georgia’s representation in the league has now doubled (the other two being Sundiata Gaines and Damien Wilkins)!
