Things can change awfully quick when it comes to roster building in the NBA.
It was only a month ago that many wondered if the LA Clippers' championship window was set to close. The team trailed the Dallas Mavericks 2-0 in its first-round series and fell behind 30-11 in Game 3.
After recovering to win that series, the Clippers were once again down 2-0 to the Utah Jazz in the second round and on the brink of an offseason full of questions and doubt.
Instead, the perception of the Clippers' roster now is a team that was resilient and mentally tough enough to reach the Western Conference finals against the Phoenix Suns without its best player, Kawhi Leonard, who did not play the final eight games of the postseason because of a right knee injury.
Now as the Clippers transition to offseason mode, the big questions start with Leonard's health and contract status.
