In 1978 they shifted base to California and were known as the San Diego Clippers. 6 years later they moved to Los Angeles. However, these moves weren't successful for the side. They made the playoffs only 4 times in their first 28 years as the Los Angeles Clippers. 

Legendary coach Doc Rivers is leading the team right now, while Lawrence Frank and Michael Winger serve as the president and general manager respectively.

The Los Angeles Clippers acquired big names such as Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, and Chris Paul in the late 2000s and early 2010s. The acquisitions marked a change in fortunes for the side and they reached the playoffs in 7 of the 8 seasons between 2012 to 2019. 

During the 2019 offseason, the LA Clippers signed 2X NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard and acquired time NBA all-star Paul George, from Oklahoma City Thunder. The trade saw 2 players and 5 first-round draft picks go the other way and saw the team signal an intention to challenge for the NBA title.
