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)!

  1. Part of me wants to laugh bitterly that they’ve succeeded in securing non-guaranteed contracts from Donald Sterling in a league headed for a lockout…but that would be small of me. Best of luck to both of them. Hmph.

  2. In view of the fact that a lockout now appears to be a certainty, the decision to leave school seems (to me, at least) to be a tragic mistake. I saw this coming–it is hard to believe that those advising Trey and Travis did not (or chose to ignore the possibility).
