About Los Angeles Clippers

Los Angeles Clippers logoThe Clippers ended the 2008-09 season with another disappointing finish - 14th in the Western Conference - with a record of 19-63.

On May 19, 2009 the Los Angeles Clippers were awarded the first overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft. The Clippers had a 17.7% chance of being awarded the first pick. With the 1st selection in the draft, they selected Blake Griffin. To open up a spot in the starting lineup for Griffin, Los Angeles traded Zach Randolph to Memphis for Quentin Richardson on July 1. Richardson was then traded on July 20 to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Sebastian Telfair, Craig Smith, and Mark Madsen.

Friday, October 23, 2009 Griffin apparently broke his kneecap during the Clippers' final exhibition game against New Orleans perhaps after a dunk that left the power forward wincing in pain. Initially the Clippers' said Griffin only had a sore left knee which would make him questionable for the season opener the following Tuesday night, before revealing the break. The injury could sideline the former Oklahoma star for six weeks.
