He helped the franchise change our culture. He always had his teammates' backs. Good luck to Caron. He is now back in bis home state of Wisconsin. EDIT: Ugh, he's going to Phoenix. But still, good luck.

Wish him the best of luck. One of my favorite Clippers of this new era. I will always remember him for how he played with an injured hand in the playoffs.

Good luck with the Suns.He repped the Clippers all the time.Still remember when he hurt his hand against the Grizzlies but refused to let the team down and played with the injury.He had some big games and is a great guy and a great teammate.

I seem to have bad luck when I pick a favorite player. First it was Maggette, then Camby, then Baron, then Gordon, then Foye, and now Caron.

I'll never forget him suffering a season ending injury breaking his hand, only to see him put on a superman cape and come back and play with a broken hand. Too cool. Will miss him.

Is there any way we can send CB and EB our thanks?

EB is better somewhere he can start

Thanks and best of luck. It's like losing family

Caron was one of the first free agents to take a risk on a franchise with a bad reputation. Thanks for coming here and helping change this culture Caron. Best of luck in Phoenix

Will miss his "tuff"ness a lot - I thought he brought great grit to our team. While I (still) feel we need to upgrade at that position, I have great respect for him. I actually feel bad we are sending to him to a bad team after he chose to play for us pre CP.

true, i look at it this way when not many were willing to come here he was happy to don a clipper uni. But once PAul and others came aboard he started to decline in ability, so his lack of play led the front office to wisely trade him away. I was one of those that wanted him gone but appreciate everything he did while here.

Don't feel bad this is a business and vets like him are fully aware of that.

Goodbye Caron. Wish you the best to you and Eric. You helped us a lot and had some real good games. But now we need another kind of wing player, and you know it, so I hope you wont be mad at us. We ll be thankful forever for having the guts to sign here before everyone did. And for the badassery with the broken hand.

I'm really gonna miss Caron and, especially, all the interviews he would do for local sports radio. Who is going to speak on the Clippers' behalf now that Caron isn't here to interrupt the maddening onslaught of Laker homerism that is BSPN radio?

Caron was one of the first free agents that really wanted to be a clip. So I really give him my respect and wish him the best. Tuff Juice will be missed. Thanks for being a real pro. #ClipperNation

I hope Caron does well in Phoenix. I wish we could have kept him somehow but unfortunately it was time to move on. Good luck Caron.

Caron was one of the guys that really helped turn this thing around. Everyone saw CP, Blake, JCross, and DJ making highlight plays.........but it was Caron's enthusiasm for the Clippers that got this thing going. "Clipper Nation, STAND UP!!" He got me hyped, I wish he could've been here for Doc n' company...

Thank you Caron for everything you did for the Clips! I will miss his goofy personality! Remember he was the start of domino getting CP3.

It's just an appreciation of Caron being with us during the rebuilding of the team. His name is part of the team that won the clippers first pacific div title including VDN. Saying thank you for this guy and VDN is not funny for me.

^ Well said.

Big ups Tuffjuice!

He, like most of us here, embraced being a Clipper before it was cool.
