German basketball player Daniel Theis is a new member of the Los Angeles Clippers after his contract was bought out by the Indiana Pacers. This was confirmed by the franchise's president of basketball operations, Lawrence Frank.
One of the key players on the German team that won world gold in Manila, Theis no longer has a role on the young Indiana team and has decided to seek a new home. He joins the Clippers, a team full of big names like Westbrook, Harden, Leonard, George, and Zubac, where he will have the opportunity to contribute to a team with high aspirations.
On the path to a goal that would justify assembling a team full of proven names, the Clippers must prove their worth against the reigning champion Denver Nuggets, led by Nikola Jokic. Theis has shown his defensive prowess, so he will be very important alongside Zubac in trying to stop "Joker." The experienced German national team player is very sure of himself and thus instills confidence in the team.
It is clear to everyone that this important reinforcement for the Clippers is perhaps what they needed to make a breakthrough.
The Clippers hope that the experience of this player will help them
This is Theis' fifth team in seven years in the NBA, having also played for the Celtics, Bulls, and Rockets.
In Europe, he defended the colors of Bamberg, from where he crossed the pond. His career averages are 7.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 1.3 assists. The 31-year-old Theis will play an important role for the Clippers as he is versatile on both offense and defense.
He can play as a center or power forward and is a good rebounder and defender. He is also a good passer and can move the ball to the hoop. The Clippers hope that Theis can help them realize their championship ambitions. He is an experienced player who has achieved a lot in the NBA and is capable of stepping up in big games.
The Clippers are a team with a lot of potential, and Theis could be the missing piece of the puzzle that helps them achieve success.
