The lockdown defender was a key piece for the Houston Rockets last season with averages of 7.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 25.6 minutes per night for the West's top-seed Rockets. After the loss of Trevor Ariza to the Phoenix Suns earlier this summer, the Rockets will face a major challenge replacing last season's defensive versatility at the forward position.
Mbah a Moute returns to the Clippers after playing two seasons in L.A. from 2015-17.
