The Los Angeles Clippers have one of the best front offices in the NBA, and now it should remain stable.

After a rough start to his tenure owning the team, Steve Ballmer decided to let the basketball experts do what they do best, hiring a front office squad that included Jerry West. As a special consultant, West has been part of the team with GM Michael Winger that helped Los Angeles to be more than the sum of their parts this season.

According to a report from Shams Charania, West will remain with the Clippers after signing a new deal with the team.

The Clippers have a big offseason coming up, with a lot of cap space available and of course Kawhi Leonard or Kevin Durant potentially on their horizon as free agents.

West holds some serious weight, not only in the Los Angeles basketball sphere but around the NBA. The Clippers will need him as they try to angle their way to the next step after a quick rebuild.
