G Terrance Ferguson

Terrance Ferguson is not a name that many casual basketball fans may know, and that may continue to be the case if he stays on the Oklahoma City Thunder. With so much star power on that team, Ferguson is going to struggling to find significant minutes to progress into the player he has the potential to be.

If this season starts on a sour note for the Clippers, they could abandon any chance of contending, dealing out some pieces for some youth. In this case, Los Angeles would present the perfect avenue for Ferguson to develop into a solid young asset.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are making a serious case to challenge the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference this season. OKC added both Paul George and Carmelo Anthony to a team that already included MVP Russell Westbrook. Westbrook and the Thunder give many NBA fans a chance to get back at Kevin Durant for leaving to the Warriors.

The one position the Thunder can improve? Shooting guard. Andre Roberson is the current starter for the Thunder, and in all honesty, his 6.6 points per game don’t cut it.

Oklahoma City could then target Clippers shooting guard, and sixth man of the year candidate, Lou Williams. Williams could slide into the starting rotation to make the team far more well rounded, or, he could play the sixth man role behind Roberson and add scoring to a fairly weak bench.

In return for half a season of Williams, the Clippers can get Ferguson alongside the Thunder 2019 first round pick.
