This one actually got me thinking for a minute, I don't know if its exactly true. Its not like Matt Barnes was bad. He was good; just not great. When you consider that he probably wouldn't start for like 75% of the other teams in the league, he probably did benefit from playing with CP, Blake and DJ. But he's a 35 year old streak shooter, so there's only so much he can do.
Caron Butler was actually pretty good his first year with the Clips. But he got old quick. Plus, DJ and Blake have both improved a lot since Caron was here. 2012 Caron Butler with this current Clippers team would probably be pretty damn effective.
And Jared Dudley just didn't work out. He was basically injured the whole time he was here. Not major injuries, but nagging stuff that prevented him from being effective.
So Wes Johnson is going to flourish with the Clips (or not) on his own merits. How the past SFs have played here really doesn't tell you much about how Wes will fare with this iteration of the Clippers.
