After a hard-fought respectable series, the Clippers ended their series with raised eyebrows and the world on notice. In a standoff against what many are deeming the greatest team ever assembled, the star-less Clippers held their own.

And just as they found success in the regular season, could they again find success in the offseason?

According to Paolo Uggetti of The Ringer, L.A. may consider a heavy pursuit of Anthony Davis this summer, with a number of different packages on the table.

“Imagine if the Clippers were to sign Leonard and Durant, or just one of the two, and then decide to maximize their window even more by packaging the rest of their assets for Anthony Davis. It may be more likely than you think. After the Lakers whiffed on forcing a Davis deal at the trade deadline, the sweepstakes now feel wide open. The Clippers’ offer—which would probably have to include Gilgeous-Alexander, Shamet, Danilo Gallinari’s expiring contract, multiple first-rounders, and probably a couple more assets—is good, but it doesn’t feature an elite prospect like the Celtics’ Jayson Tatum.”

L.A.'s package could include Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Landry Shamet, and a variety of picks. While the names may not be as sexy as Jayson Tatum or even Brandon Ingram, both Alexander and Shamet have become some of the game's brightest young stars.

As they inevitably set their sights on free agency, it will be interesting to see what the trade market holds for them in a crucial offseason.
