Again I'd do anything. Take Turkoglu.. he's only got a year or two left and with CP3 feeding him I'm sure he can find his shot again.

Well inconsistent Butler better be on fire on Friday. He is due for a big game.

Bledsoe and DJ for Afflalo and Vucevic would be amazing. Then let Billups and Odom walk. Hire an elite coach. If all those happen we are in AMAZING shape,all the sudden.

I been dreaming about this trade but I doubt Magic would bite unless the Clippers include some draft picks and money

If we have to throw in a 1st round pick, no problem. Our 24th, 25th pick, whatever ends up being, is not that great. A lot of teams would rather get an early 2nd rounder than a late 1st since you don't have to give guaranteed deals to those guys.

This is a perfect trade for us and it's pretty darn good for them too. They get two young guys to build on in exchange for one young guy and one big contract. If we added Caron's expiring contract and take back Harrington that would sweeten the pot and also not hurt us at all. Harrington is one of the dumbest MF's in the league but he can still play and would offer some versatility that we don't currently have.

i think that even if he does show up this series should be a huge eye opener to our front office that guys like butler and billups just are not the answer anymore. We need shooyers at the SF and SG positions. And these ppsitions demand more consistency. If we get a guy that can contribute 14 ppg on a nightly basis that would make opposing defenses not able to focus entirely on paul. I know in the regular season chauncey and carons inconsistency was not as evident or maybe it just didnt affect us much, but now we see how these two and DJ are costing us.

The regular season, like baseball, is a long drawn out affair, and often means nothing in the playoffs especially with injuries playing a bigger and bigger part in a team's success or failure. Since BG arrived, he has never been given ANY help in the front court. His career will be very short if this issue is not resolved immediately. It's a front court of one! SAD indeed...It's BG with a ghost making 40 mil. Thinking that LO was going to plug a big need was fantasy from day one. The Clippers are BG and CP3 with some solid role players. But the big void is at 5, and unless it is filled next year, Griffin is toast.

Everyone on here is quick to turn on DJ, the guy was putting in his work during the offseason and started out strong. He then started getting seated for an out of shape LO, what is that gonna do to his confidence? He is playing as if he is on a tight wire, if he makes a mistake he gets benched where billups and butler can make three or four and get applauded for one good play by vinny. i blame vinny for derailing dj, and would like to see what a coach like sloan or svg could do with dj before letting him go.

This is the freaking NBA and he's a 25 year old man. If he doesn't want that heavy responsibility than don't fu**ing drive the price of your contract up. We offered him 7 mill a year and he turned it down. Sorry I don't believe in babying a 5th year player who makes 10.5+ million a year.

I am starting to think CP3 should be fed up with DJ by now. If CP3 says - trade him or I won't sign, what would you prefer?

The point is with DJ's contract he's not performing anywhere close to what he should for the money he's getting. 6 pts 2 rebs per game in these playoffs, I say to him go F**K yourself if I'm the coach, CP3, or anyone else.

Yes, but Caron can and is due for a big game. We've seen that all year. Billups hardly played so I don't expect much from him. Willie has to start. VDN has no balls to bench him.

So basically right now we are the CP3 and Blake show and one guy has a serious ankle sprain and back spasms. Fu**ing awesome! Crawford can dominate the regular season all he wants but that doesn't mean jack **** if he disappears in the playoffs.

Well when I say big game, I mean at least outplay and outscore Prince. Caron can easily get around 12-15 points and thats what we need from him besides helping out on the rebounding more.

I Crawford's defense, ever since he went off in game 2, he's been guarded by Tony Allen the vast majority of the time he's been on the floor. Allen is one of the best perimeter defenders I've even seen in my life. I honestly think he's one of the best on ball defenders ever. Yet, we keep running ISOs with Jamal against him. Maybe we should run Jamal off a few screens, get him free in the corner for a 3 or something? Try something different to get him going. Having him try to take Allen off the dribble is just dumb.

This guy is a great bench player but who wants a $10mil second stringer? $3 mill is a good price.

I don't understand why he can't learn. Basketball isn't differential equations. It's over paid undereducated guys dressed in underwear throwing a leather sphere through a metal hoop and getting lots of chicks.

I'm not saying he should be great but this guy has delusions of adequacy. Mediocre would be a big improvement. Maybe he's lost faith in himself. Remember Ryan Gomes? His own mother said he's lazy. He has no heart.GET HIM A SPORTS PSYCHOLOGIST. He has all the physical skills to be good. Unlike pimpin' basketball is easy

I really doubt Orlando would make that trade, since its already clear Vucevic is better than DJ. But I really want him gone. I might even entertain a deal with Charlotte for Gerald Henderson and Biyombo if it included DJ. I think Biyombo actually will become a solid defender.

Good news guys. Ramona Shelburne tweeted this morning regarding DJ.

"DeAndre Jordan has more fans in front offices than you'd imagine."

If true that's the best news all day that he still has some value.

Seriously, I googled him and all I get is Montel Williams wanting to cash my check... or get me on his show to reveal that I'm a transvestite who's f***** the lesbian midget in the next trailer park over.

EDIT: Aaah... the extra "L" made a difference. His numbers look pretty good. Also, I'm gonna be on TV! Don't think the wife will be too happy... she'll probably throw a chair or two. I wonder what panties I should wear.

We should a player that is the complete polar opposite of DJ. Lets see if Verajao qualifies. Energy? Check. Passion? Check. Rebounder? Check. Not a liability at the FT line? Check.

Does anybody on here not want this guy? I can understand he's a little injury prone, but atleast he doesn't have a broken heart like DJ.

I think you're selling DJ short in the "energy" department. He has plenty of energy to interview-bomb other players, make "funny" youtube videos and tweet photos of teammates sleeping... m********* must be worn out!

The clowns are the hardest working guys in the circus... but unfortunately, they're still the clowns.

Dream scenario, Brandon Jennings leaves the Bucks, we send Bledsoe, DJ for Larry Sanders, maybe some fillers on both ends. I'd take back Mike Dunleavy if it came down to it. Much better contributor than Butler.

Bucks get a starting PG and a starting C back, to sweeten the pot I'd toss in a couple 2nd rounders.

We need to keep DJ. He is still a valuable asset and I doubt the FO will make a knee jerk decision on his fate as a Clipper. He may not have met expectations YET but his best is still ahead. His learning curve is a little slower than most but he'll come around. I dont think trading a player immediately after a poor post season is a wise business decision. Plus, this team will not do anything until CP3 makes his decision. Everything goes through CP3. BTW, wasnt DJ suppose to be the next Tyson Chandler?

DJ and valuable asset do not belong in the same sentence. We should try to get rid of him while people are stupid enough to think he is a valuable commodity and actually has upside. He has the bball iq of a brick and will never get it. He has made extremely marginal improvements in his 5 years in the league. There is a reason he was a 2nd round draft pick which was because he had great athletic talents but lower bball iq than Javale Mcgee.
