Kawhi Leonard Details What Rajon Rondo Is Bringing to the LA Clippers Team
Watch as Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard talks new acquisition following win over Philadelphia.
Kawhi spoke on the “spark” that teammate Terance Mann is bringing to the Clippers.
“[He’s] just being aggressive”, he said. “He’s coming out, getting downhill, attacking the paint, and making plays for himself and others. With him, it’s starting with his defense. Coming out, bringing energy, getting him passing lanes and rebounding. He’s just giving us a spark off the bench.”
Kawhi also shared his thoughts on trade with Atlanta, bringing Rajon Rondo to the Clippers.
“Obviously he’s a point guard, been there before, been in previous championship runs. He’s gonna give us that veteran mentality, the experience. Giving us another ball handler and play maker to attack the rim and make the defense collapse.”
In addition, Kawhi spoke on playing solid offensive pressure teams like Philadelphia.
“Just with them [76ers], they’re a great team leading the east over there. Their offense is great in transition. Starting with Ben [Simmons] getting downhill. He has shooters knocking down shots. Tobias [Harris] is playing great right now, and you know that’s kind of a focal point on our defense in general, playing them or whoever. That’s our challenge, our transitions haven’t been good lately with matching up quick. Pretty much, we tried to take that challenge tonight”, he finished.
