Every team needs end of bench projects. He would be cheap, if he develops, you play him, if not, he continues to develop on the bench. Its like how Denver signed Anthony Randolph except he doesnt have the issues. You aren't signing him as a starter. If JVG is hired, I doubt a rebounder and defender like Aminu doesn't get minutes. He's like a Jared Jeffries, and he was New Orelans' best defender (over Lopez) and I think even best rebounder this last season.

If Dwight signs with the Rockets , maybe we can swing a 3 team trade for Asik

Clippers get Asik/Anderson

Pelicans get DJ/Bledsoe

Rockets get Lopez

^ not a huge fan of that trade. we could get a lot more for bledsoe and DJ isn't frowned upon by other teams as much as we think

This would be pretty good, but the money doesn't work.

Asik>>>DJ and Ryan Anderson is a very good shooter. We get a lot better with this trade and frankly it is robbery and doesn't make sense for other teams besides the Clippers.

Our team with JVG or Karl's offense would be DEADLY with the addition of Asik and Anderson's 3 point shooting. Only one can wish. I'm sure we'd be better defensively too and our FT% would raise as well! Ryan Anderson and Omer Asik have better FT% than the Clipper starters currently at their positions.

Interesting to note that the Pelicans are now making a move towards free agent Tyreke Evans who can play the 1 or the 2, they just traded for Jrue holiday who is clearly their starting PG. I wonder if they have a deal in place potentially to trade Eric Gordon should Tyreke Evans go to New Orleans.

I just can't see the Pelicans being dumb enough to put Evans at SF who is seriously undersized for that position. And with Vasquez also a PG/Sg there, I wonder what the heck they are doing.

I am in no way saying we should go after Gordon, but he could become expendable if they get Evans. Worth noting that I doubt Phoenix has the assets to acquire Gordon unless they move Gortat and send New Orleans at least 2 1st rounders.

The Hornets are desperate to trade Gordon and for good reason. He is injury prone, has a bad attitude and isn't a max caliber player. At this point I am not so sure the Suns consider Gordon a valuable asset.

Wonder if they would take this trade.Give them Butler and a 2nd rounder for Aminu(S&T) and Lopez.Than they can trade Gordan to the Suns who really want him.They would be a young team so convincing them to take on Butler's expiring contract shouldn't be too hard.Just tell them he could be a mentor for the younger players.

I am still down for this trade. We need to find a third option that can carry the team in the event of a Blake/CP3 no-show. We should be looking a player of that caliber rather than looking for the best role players e.g. Reddick.

Why do you guys want Aminu? I'm not being sarcastic or anything, just asking.

I really don't want him though...haa.

I would be a huge fan of this trade, but like most of the rumors out there, it's probably false.

Pels are trying to unload Robin Lopez for cap purposes, but for that reason I dont see them taking DJ.

I like him cuz he is got a ton of potential. He can be utilized in many ways as well. Over the last year he's gotten much better at rebounding the ball, and if he can work on his jumpshot he'll be a decent player.

I just don't think he has the drive or motivation to play in the NBA.

This team doesn't need people with potential, it needs people that can already ball. News flash! we had amino, he is sucked, no one here liked him and everyone was fine getting rid of him bc he wasn't paul george.

Why do so many people here insist on bringing back our old garbage??

Aminu is not that bed to come off the bench, 8 rpg in 27 minutes. Each year his points, shooting percentage and rebounds have gone up. Shot 48% last year overall. Not a bad bench player.

Looks like Lopez and Vasquez may go to Sacramento according to reports. That's kinda disappointing. I know others don't like Lopez but I see some true potential in the guy. I guess he would back up Cousins?

Scratch that, Lopez looks to be going to Portland now. Also the other guy I was looking at Al Jefferson is going to the Bobcats. Not sure what he did to deserve that!

They backed up a trailer full of cash to his front door, is why he's going to Bobcats.

Al Jefferson doesn't give a rats ass about winning. He just wants to get paid, and that's exactly what he's doing. He's a smart man, banking on garbage teams his whole career.

really too bad this didn't go down - I would have loved to see EJ back in red, white, and blue!
