Clippers search for the third man in

This is it for the preseason. With Tuesday’s opener on the Lakers’ court, the Clippers pretty much know where they stand except for one position.
Who will grab the role as the the team’s third big man behind DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin?
Coach Doc Rivers hopes Ryan Hollins, Byron Mullens and Lou Amundson can shake it out with their play but that hasn’t happened yet.
“The one thing every coach wants is separation,” Rivers said. “Ryan’s had his minutes where he’s played well and so has Mully and so has Lou. At the end of the day it’ll be by committee and if someone separates, that’s great.
“If they don’t, it’s not a big deal either. If we have two guys, we can play either one. And you just hope you pick the right guy. If he’s not going, then you have another guy. That competition’s not all bad either.”
