The Los Angeles Clippers have come a long way from the joke of the NBA to a possible championship contender. With the acquisition of legendary coach Doc Rivers, the Clippers sit on the cusp on winning their first championship in franchise history. But before the party favors are bought and the parade is scheduled, there are some adjustments that need to be made this summer. Let’s take a look.

Hedo Turkoglu is an aging-journeyman who has not lived up to the expectation of Doc Rivers. The stretch-forward is averaging 2.3 points and 2.5 rebounds per game this season. The sharpshooter has only attempted 25 three-point field goals in a Clippers’ uniform. Los Angeles would be better off dropping him for the likes of Matt Bonner if possible.

After breaking his foot as a member of the Orlando Magic earlier this season, Glen Davis looks like he has found a new home in Los Angeles. The "Big Baby" is averaging 3.6 points and 2.7 rebounds per game and seems to be a feasible reserve for the Clippers' big men. If Los Angeles can get Davis to commit to another season, he will be a great piece in a championship run.

The Los Angeles Clippers won the Danny Granger lottery after the Philadelphia 76ers bought out his contract. The experienced Granger now has something to prove and joined the Clippers in hopes of winning his first ring. His role will likely expand if he returns and it should not take much to convince Granger to stay.

The acquisition of J.J. Reddick was huge for "Lob City." It added the long ball to their offense, which was a dimension the Clippers were missing for some time. But due to nagging injuries to his back, Los Angeles has not been able to take full advantage of his abilities. If he can return at 100 percent for next season, the Clippers will be legitimate contenders.

Doc Rivers is a very respected coach, and he may have enough pull to get the attention of Carmelo Anthony. Of course the likelihood of Carmelo taking an obvious pay cut to play for the Clippers is not high, but his hunger for a ring may be high enough to see Los Angeles as a possible home.
