As rumors swirl around the NBA Draft, the Los Angeles Clippers may have found an answer to their point guard woes.

According to Zach Klein of WSB in Atlanta, the Clippers are in talks with the Atlanta Hawks for a deal that would send the No.13 pick to Atlanta for a package involving point guard Dennis Schroder.

Schroder, who averaged a career-high 19.4 points, 6.2 assists and 1.1 steals per game last season, could be the immediate answer to a vacancy left in the Clippers lineup since they traded Chris Paul.

According to Spotrac, the 24-year-old point guard is due $15.5 million over each of the next three seasons.

If Los Angeles can land Schroder in the reported deal, it would still have the No.12 pick to find another young player to add to its core.
