As the draft gets ever closer, I’m going to take a look at some of the prospects that the Los Angeles Clippers should consider using their 28th pick on. They’ll likely be a mixture of positions as the upcoming free agency could leave the Clippers in need of bodies at both guard and forward positions. This piece, the first in the series, takes a look at Semaj Christon a point guard prospect from Xavier.
Thankfully for the Clippers, Chris Paul has their starting point guard spot sewn up for the foreseeable future. Behind him, there’s a potential need for cover though. With Darren Collison expected to test free agency this summer, the Clippers may well be shopping for a new backup, and where better to start than the draft.
With a starting point guard as measured and intelligent as Paul, there’s a few requirements for his backup. LA should be looking for a guy that offers them a change of pace, and will give opposition defense’s a different look when the bench comes in.
All that’s required is someone who will provide energy, cause havoc defensively, and have enough offensive weapons to keep the defense honest. With that in mind, the sophomore Xavier Musketeer, Semaj Christon, could be a perfect fit.
Let’s take a closer look at Christon’s game.
