Redick/Crawford

Dudley/Matt?/Bullock

Blake/Landry

To me Mayo was never a big name.

Yes excellent trade...didn't think we could get Dudley.

Wow, I am just ecstatic. Reddick is a great teammate also. Both are good defenders, and now we can actually start legit players at every position.

Dudley will have his teamates back as well. Blake is gonna benefit the most from this trade. Reddick and Dudley will love playing with cp and Blake.....open 3's galore.

P.s. I like Clips making moves quietly.

I think we're hard capped now so that means Barnes is done according to Larry Coon.

Totally I will miss tuff-juice. He never complained, hit a bunch of 3's for us, and always supported his team. Maybe he will be back with us after next season for a smaller contract. I will miss Eric Bledsoe and his dynamic play as well. Good luck E-Bled and Caron in Phoenix!

We do still have the MLE.I am 50/50 on this trade.I like both guys but think we could have got a little more for Bledsoe.This is better than the Raptors and Magic offers in my opinion but I think we should have gotten a 1st or at least 2nd rounder from the Suns.

Both guys fit our needs and should fit in great.Now we have to split the MLE between Barnes and a back up PG,then sign Odom and O'neal to the vet min and we are set.I know people here don't want Odom but we don't have money to get a Landry,Hickson,or anyone on that level.

For christ sakes how much more do you think we could have gotten for a guy with potential and an over the hill below average player at his position, lol.

I'magine defenders having to play honest on both wings leaving the middle less crowded for Blake and DJ to over power single defenders down low. I really like the way this is feeling now

If we can get Landry, our pick and pop 4, that would be great

I'm not sure but with S&T ( Riddick), we basically hardcapped ourselves which means we're done.

Larry Coon Larry Coon ‏@LarryCoon 11m

Not that it particularly matters to them, but Clippers will now be hard-capped at about $75.6 million.

Barnes won't be coming back I'm afraid and Summers is a PF. Reggie is our back up sf.

I like this trade. Redick obviously fills our need for a perimeter shooter. Dudley is a good all-around player and plays defense, I wouldn't be surprised if he plays even harder when on a winning team. That should round out the starting 5, pretty decent lineup there on paper.

Carl Landry would be a huge pickup if he can agree to the MLE. Getting Barnes back would be second, assuming he'll take less money with the Non-Bird. Not a huge fan that we're entertaining bringing Odom back. Lastly would be our bench PG situation, not sure if we bring back Billups or not, but whoever it is will need to be very cheap.

dam, I'm a little disappointed. we might of brought in good shooters but we definitely lost a lot of athleticism. i really hope jared dudley isn't our starting small forward. I'm still not satisfied with our roster because i do believe we need another scoring threat. it doesn't necessarily need to be a star but some one who can give instant offense.

No more double teaming Blake Griffin. Willie Green, Chris Paul, Reggie Bullock, JJ Redick, Jared Dudley, Jamal Crawford. We have a lot of deadly shooters.

EP just tweeted we still have the MLE.

Getting Barnes back with NBE and Landry with MLE is still a possibility if all sides can agree.

Definitely not the sexy trade that a lot was hoping for but I think it's a good move and the Clips got 2 good players who immediately fills team needs. Let's face it, it seemed like some people were really overvaluing Bledsoe and was expecting an all-star back for him. Reddick is getting about $6.5M a year, not too bad of a deal. I'll assume that Mayo was out of our price range, probably seeking $8M+ per season. Dudley does a little of everything and a high energy guy. We're going to be hearing "bingo" from Ralph a lot this season.

Only thing is CP3 probably isn't too happy to be playing against Bledsoe 4 times a year lol.

Yup and that's the point, we got as good a player for less $. PLus Dudley at 4.5 mil for 3 more years and that's a very good bang for the buck, IMO.

I like this move a lot. Reddick can obviously shoot and has always been known as a hard worker. Dudley is a shooter and a pest, he will get underneath the opponets skin. He did get into with Blake a couple years ago. Yeah we could've done better with Bledsoe but this is still a good trade, even if we have to watch Bledsoe and Butler jam it down our throats 4 times a year.

Now I still hope we have that MLE. Landry would be a huge pickup.

"@EricPincus:

Clippers have room under hard cap to use full MLE, sign Barnes for $1.48 mil and fill roster with vet mins - if Matt/LAC open to that "

Lets Get Landry now!!!

Our FO did great, since I thought we were only going to be able to get 1 of these guys. All the whiners are really underestimating the players we got back and overrating Bledsoe.

Not hardcapped UNTIL we use full MLE. In other words... awesome shape! Bring back Hollins for minimum, dude has been working his ass off. Same with Summers and Wayns.
