@BA_Turner: The Clippers waived forward Lou Amundson after the game. Clippers roster now at 14 players. Now with this done, where do the Clippers go? The only person on a non-guaranteed contract is Maalik Wayns with....

I thought they weren't allowed to waive Wayns because he's injured.

Lou being waived must means we have our sights on another big, surely.

Jason Collins (for our thug role) or Emeka Okafor?

Emeka okafor is the perfect banging rebounding defense smart player we need off our bench a better Reggie Evans with long arms damn he just very injury prone suns will buy him out for us for hooking them up with Bledsoe for dudley

The only thing our team is missing is a defensive big for second unit. If we fill this need, and nab a guy like okafor, we will surely be in the top three to win the championship this year. I hope we make this happen.

Agreed, lets hope we can get the right man and therefore really limit Hollins and Mullens playing time.

I love you Lou, but this was great news to wake up to. Crazy though, I wanted us to sign him so bad this offseason & once I saw preseason I wanted to slap myself. Glad he was non-guaranteed, I hope this move turns into Emeka or at least Diop.

Kinda sad to see him go considering he had a couple of decent moments last night defensively. And watching him cheer for his Clipper teammates. But yeah, it seems like we must have our sights on something.

agreed. I'm not saying Lou was a good player but I could envision him as a physical player we could use to batter opposing bigs. the fact that we let him go indicated that something big is in the works. I don't think we waive Amundson for another journeyman

I'm in that same boat. He seemed a step slow to everything, making him a foul machine.

Seems like a nice guy, but he's essentially a unskilled "hustle" guy who fouls a lot. Not needed.

I like Lou a lot but he got into foul trouble way too easily and didn't really do much.Not surprised he was let go.I like the idea of getting Okafor if he is bought out but if not I would give Jeremy Tyler a shot.

Realistic, it'll be very tough to get Okafor so don't expect Clippers get Okafor based on cost wise and if he really want to win the championship. If not, I'll be down for sign Diop for defensive and rebound purpose. Is Haywood still in the team?

I want a full 15-man roster. Hopefully we get Okafor.

Okafor reminds me of the Igudala fantasy of a few years ago. It ain't gonna happen. Everybody overvalues playing for a contender. Some want money more. Some have other reasons. My favorite guy for the spot, Elton Brand could have been the piece that got us a ring. After his huge contract he doesn't need the $$$. He could have signed Vet's Min. He didn't he took $3 mill?? Maybe we didn't pursue him but if his an*s wrinkle manager had approached us with that deal it would have happened.

Okafor's health is not guaranteed. Lou stunk it up. As far as big plans because of the waiver, what options are left?. How about that fat Greek guy Soufle or whatever his name is. Twisted Evil. Are there any Euro guys out there?

Forgetting Igudala oops Okafor.

Diop last four years/36 min.10 Boards, 0.492 FG% , 4.9 ppg. IF WE CAN GET HIM he's our man. While Hollins is a better scorer Diop beats him in every other. thing. Hollins is listed as 230# Any good center should be 250. Diop is listed at 300. The cavalry may come to the rescue

Can he get more $ elsewhere?

Malcolm Thomas is still available for a cheap, young ,defensive big. Not much experience but has shown some flashes.

Diop would be nice. Better than Lou at least.

I still think Jamal Crawford for Spencer Hawes is the better idea if we're really serious about getting a surefire backup big.

Don't know where Celtics found this Vitor Faverani guy but I liked the little I saw of him.I was watching the Celtics play the Nets on ESPN and Faverani was hitting 3's,rebounding,and blocking shots.He seems like he is what we want Mullens to be.I haven't seen a lot of him so don't know how consistent his play is but he looked good in that game.Wish we can find a guy like him,but it's unlikely.

rockets waive Camby. He's got to be better than Lou right?

The Rockets will waive Marcus Camby (foot) on Monday.

Camby is out indefinitely with a torn plantar fascia. Kevin McHale respects Camby and it's possible he'll join the coaching staff in a player development role, or be re-signed during the season once he's healthy enough to play.

just read on hoopshype that Spencer Hawes is up for trade.

Interesting. Question is what are we going to give up and what do they want

Hawes $6,5 mill

Green $1.4 mil

Jamal $5.2

Hollins $1,186

Mullens $940,000

Jamal, Hollins for Hawes? Are we comfortable with four guards?

Wilcox has 7.9 reb/ 36 min last yr. What's wrong with him? Is he injured?

he was cleared to play from the enlarged heart back in march 2012 but i may be mistaken

he probably didn't find a team this year

but yeah i'd rather take a shot at a free agent

i think we can still get someone better for jamal
