The 2015-16 Los Angeles Clippers season was the 46th season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA), their 38th season in Southern California, and their 32nd season in Los Angeles.

On July 8, despite offers from the Dallas Mavericks, DeAndre Jordan returned to the Clippers with a 4-year, $87.7 million deal.

During the offseason the Clippers signed veteran and Boston Celtics legend Paul Pierce and he played the rest of his career as a Clipper. The signing reunited Pierce with his former coach Doc Rivers, who coached the Celtics from 2004-2013 and won them a championship in 2008.

The Clippers played most of the season without Blake Griffin, who broke his hand in a fight and was subsequently suspended for 4 games. He returned on April 3 after sitting out 45 games.

The Clippers entered the playoffs against the 5th-seeded 44-38 Portland Trail Blazers who were 9 games behind them. However, injuries robbed the team and that was their undoing as they were eliminated in the first round in six games by the Trail Blazers for the first time since 2013, when the team was eliminated by the Memphis Grizzlies.

Draft

The Clippers did not have a pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.
