Congratulations, Clipper fans, you’re getting a great player in CDR.

Chris Douglas-Roberts brought great energy to the Bobcats last year, and was a huge part of their success in reaching the NBA Playoffs. Although the Bobcats got swept by LeBron James and the Miami Heat, CDR had a great postseason.
