Beverley averaged 7.6 points, five rebounds, 3.8 assists and 0.9 steals per game for the Clippers last season while shooting 40.7% from the field and 39.7% from 3-point range.
The season before that, Beverley’s first with the Clippers, he averaged a career-high 12.2 points per game to go along with 4.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists and a career-best 1.7 steals per game while shooting 40% from deep.
Beverley is regarded as one of the NBA’s very best perimeter defenders. Put that with his top-tier shooting ability, and you get an incredibly valuable 3-and-D guard that every team would love to have. That’s Beverley, and the Clippers have to be thrilled to keep him.
