LOS ANGELES — With each passing game, it’s become more clear: The Clippers’ trade-deadline acquisition of Ivica Zubac from the Los Angeles Lakers was a fleecing.

Zubac has quietly become one of the game’s better rim-protectors at just 22 years old. His 7-foot-1 frame and 7-foot-4 wingspan make him one of the biggest players in the league, and he’s figured out how to leverage that size in close quarters. He’s not a swat machine like, say, Joel Embiid or Rudy Gobert, but more of a positionally sound defender who will alter shots in the mold of Marc Gasol or Steven Adams.

Since Zubac’s debut as the Clippers’ starting center on Feb. 9 in Boston, the Clippers are 9-4 and have posted a 102.4 defensive rating in the 264 minutes he has been on the court, which is better than the Milwaukee Bucks’ league-best defensive rating by over 2.0 points per 100 possessions (104.6) and better than L.A.’s season-long defensive rating by over 7.0 points per 100 possessions (109.9, 19th-best in the NBA).

On the season, Zubac’s 102.2 defensive rating ranks 18th among all qualifying players (40-plus games and 15-plus minutes per game) and sixth among centers.



This is so frustrating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t care who it is...whoever is responsible for the decision to acquire Muscala for a good asset in Zubac should be fired immediately.

I see why Magic/Pelinka did this; they wanted more playing time for Moe because they see him as a rotational stretch 5 next season, but I think we could have gotten more for Zubac.

Muscala is basically Ryan Kelly.

This is a huge injustice to Ryan Kelly.

They called him Zublocka and he was a Laker diehard.

You gave him up for an expiring stiff that doesnt play and cant play, WHY

Exactly Ventura. Why doesn't this FO as well as previous Fo's learn? Kelly, Muscala, Mo...supposedly stretch 4's that can shoot. In reality, they're slow white guys, that cant' shoot or defend.

I thought people who said this is one of the worst trades in Laker history were being dramatic.

I like to apologize to those people.

This trade still feels like a gut punch.

And then watching Lopez destroy us from deep tonight. Thanks for that, Maginka.

After the signings of McGee/Rondo/Lance/KCP/Beasley and trading for Muscala...we're headed for disaster. this FO might be the worst in all of basketball.

This is the first season where I gave up on the team lol. Maybe if Ingram was still playing and on his hot streak I'd watch but anytime I watch and see bigmen kill I just think..

(bleep) MIKE MUSCALA.


Absolute. (bleep). Trash. If this guy gets another contract in this league there is something really wrong going on.
