The LA Clippers just wrapped up the most surprising and successful offseason since the 2010 Miami Heat. How does each move grade out?

The LA Clippers‘ blockbuster acquisitions of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George left mouths agape across the NBA landscape.

With the Golden State Warriors’ dynasty in ruins (or at least on ice), the Clippers went all in on the next two years, hoping to bring a championship to the franchise for the first time.

The team’s offseason was so successful they’ll enter the 2019-20 campaign as the title favorites (plus-350 per Las Vegas Superbook). The moves the team made were as follows:

Free Agency and Trades

*Kawhi Leonard (signed)
*Paul George (trade with Thunder)
*Maurice Harkless (trade with Trail Blazers, Heat and 76ers)

Draft

* Mfiondu Kabengele (27th pick, via Nets)
* Terance Mann (48th pick)

Departed

*Danilo Gallinari (trade with Thunder)
*Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (trade with Thunder)
*Garrett Temple (signed with Nets)
*Wilson Chandler (signed with Nets)
*Tyrone Wallace (waived)
*Sindarius Thornwell (waived)

Re-signed

*Patrick Beverley
*JaMychal Green
*Ivica Zubac
*Rodney McGruder
