2. P.J. Tucker

Speaking of unhappy players, P.J. Tucker is in the same boat as Hyland. The veteran was also sent home early for the All-Star break, as the team decided it would be better for him to have extra time away rather than be with them.

The tension between Tucker and the Clips has been growing throughout the season. He's been less than thrilled with his reduced role since coming over in the Harden deal, and he appeared to be great trade bait ahead of the deadline for another contender.

Instead, he ended up sticking around, but it's clear nothing has been solved here given his latest team-mandated absence.

The writing appears to be on the wall here, no matter how this season ultimately ends for LA.

3. Terance Mann

Speaking of the Harden deal, Terance Mann has been severely impacted by it.

The 27-year-old has seen his numbers drop across the board with Harden now in the mix for the Clippers. He's scoring less, taking less shots per game, and currently shooting the worst he ever has from the field (46.3%).

It doesn't seem to be a coincidence that Mann's production has dipped with a new star teammate helping run the offense. In fact, Mann's usage rate of 12.7% is the lowest since his rookie year, falling from a healthy 15.3% just last season.

Given how interested the Philadelphia 76ers were in acquiring Mann through the Harden deal, it's obvious he has some fans around the league. With how much he's overshadowed in this new-look lineup, it'd be wise for the Clips to explore a possible deal this offseason to bring in someone who better fits the current roster.
