@DanWoikeSports: Doc Rivers said Clippers will have to look for help on the wing with injury to Bullock. What are the options for a 10-Day-Contract or anyone in free-agency to sign?? Stephen Jackson is an option! So....

I want to gamble with Stephen Jackson! Could have a career resurrection

Probably the best option! Him and Barnes played with each other during their tenure in GS! Lamar is going to have to come around quick as well! Deandre injured is foot so that means Ryan....

Stephen Jackson

What's there to resurrect though? He's 35 now, he's shot 31.6% 3PT over the last 4 seasons, his defense is not really there anymore, his shot selection is not so impressive, and even Pop couldn't keep him in check.

Does he provide enough positive to be worth his antics? He's been a below average to bad (turnover prone, low percentage, bad shot selection) offensive player for a couple of seasons now, and his defense is not where it used to be.

I guess I don't know where the actual tangible value is. I mean he'll "ride or die", and he'll "make big shots" (though really percentage wise he isn't actually shooting any better in those moments, but who remembers misses right?) after bricking open shots all game, but outside of that...

Probably better to go with a safer player in this instance. Maybe if this was Stephen Jackson before 30 years old, then yea, it would make sense. Current version, you just can't maintain your game into the older ages if you admittedly "don't play any basketball in the off-season". Jamal Crawford for example didn't do drills, but he was playing all off-season. Stephen Jackson was smoking weed, drinking and writing rap songs, and that is why Stephen Jackson was a much less effective player as he got older.

Pietrus, Daniels (no 3PT shooting though), who else is there?

He rode the bench at SA so yeah getting a chance to prove that he still got it can count as resurgence. What do you want from a 10 day contract? You expecting a game changer?

Actually I just want someone that won't harm. Jackson is the kind of guy that is more likely to cause trouble than be net zero.

The other issue is that he's probably not in shape right now anyways. There are guys who will still be working out and stuff and ready to be called, but it's extremely hard to imagine Jackson is in shape to just plug in like that. He would probably need the whole 10 days to get in game shape, lol

Oh, and btw, Pop gave him 20 MPG for 55 games, started him 6 times, he was getting solid minutes, he was just horrible. He certainly wasn't riding the bench. Pop really tried to make it work (it was the previous season that he was riding the bench, I think you mixed those up).

Josh Howard is in the D-League....

Josh Howard - Austin Toros 2013-14 Regular Season Statistics PPG 11.5 RPG 4.8 APG 1.3 EFF +10.75 HE LOOKS PRETTY DECENT AND WAY BETTER REBOUNDER THAN DUDLEY! I wouldn't mind giving him a little 10-Day!....

Injuries are going to kill this season, it sucks. I hope DJ is ok, not sure how bad reggie is. It doesn't bode well that he missed training camp, is he injury prone?

Wow, didn't even know he was still even in the (D)league.. Don't think I've seen many players disappear as abruptly as he did.. If he's still got something left in the tank, he'd definitely be worth a look

What do you guys think about deshawn stevenson?

I remember him in the finals with Dallas and he defended Lebron pretty well.

Why? Did you like him as a Laker? He is older and slower and he wasn't that good or quick to begin with.

He works for TWC as a Laker commentator.

@ArashMarkazi: A possible option for the Clippers is Shannon Brown, who played for Alvin Gentry in Phoenix. The lack of bodies means the Clippers may be in the market for a player to sign soon. "We would....

Worst backup big-man rotation in the league and we're forced to start tinkering the wing spots. That's just f*cking great. Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_32

I'd almost be tempted to get Jackson to see what he would do against the Spurs.

Shannon Brown if he is available, can run and hit 3, I like his quickness.

I think we will get Marquis Daniels.He has played for Doc before and I would think Doc will want someone who knows his system rather than trying to teach someone new.Not my first choice but I don't think who ever we sign will be here for a long time anyways.

I think Shannon brown would be ideal what we lost on the wing from last year is athleticism, and wing defense I think that's exactly what Shannon brings

Shannon brown would be an awesome pick up. He brings athleticism we desperately need

and can shoot the 3.

Stephen Jackson would be terrible IMO. He plays just like matt barnes,

but worse at this point in his career.

I also like Pietrus. He can hit big 3's and plays great defense.

We could really use Browns athleticism. Dudley and Willie can only shoot it (or atleast they used to be able to). We need options.

I thought Luke stopped playing because he was injured, I don't think he's even thinking of playing basketball, lol

Shannon Brown seems like a decent option actually

Clippers would have to trade for him and that doesn't really make sense for Houston to trade him first of all to a rival team, and to a team that doesn't have any player they need.

Also doesn't make sense for the Clippers to trade for a backup C who wants to be traded because he's coming off the bench, just to put him in a limited bench role again while paying him a lot more than a 1 position backup should get.

If he has a younger skilled brother that no one knows about though...

Is there any announcement about how long Reggie and DJ will be out? Strained arch doesn't sound that bad but Reg looked like he broke something.

I wish Barnes would just put on some goggles and suit up but if that's not possible, I like the idea of J Howard for a 10-day. He's been in the press this season, he's motivated. At least he's smart enough to play the right way.

We cannot give 10-Days until January 5 or 8th! So all this happened at a real unforeseen time! Lamar would probably be someone we would sign even though he isn't ready! The thing about 10-Days....

Can the magic just waive Turgolu! Same size as Odom and probably in better shape

What role would we use Turk in though, and where does he guard on defense?

Wish we could make a splashy trade. Something like that might wake up the group. I'm not attached to anyone but blake and Chris, even though I dislike the way both are playing.

They got Rudy for basically nothing too. Players weren't bad, but not great. We should try to get someone from a team looking to tank.

One of the last few all stars in the east gets traded to the west for scrubs. East is so bad, Tor could still easily make the POs.

Not like Sac will make any noise, its actually slightly good for the Clips since we've already played them 3 out of 4 for the season. Maybe they can beat a few good teams along the way now. But I doubt it. Teaming up two of the worst closers in the game isn't going to make Sac a contender.

Another facilitator. We all know how awful Dudley is when it comes to creating off the dribble. Send Dudley to a team tanking.

They won't be a contender the year but at least they got a core of Gay and cousins to build around. Maybe Derrick Williams may pan out.

The best we can do at 3 is Dudley and Barnes? I just can't accept that I guess. Barnes is a backup, he should not be see and an answer to our small forward issue. I think small forward is at the moment the most crucial position in the league. Dudley can't or won't rebound either which is terrible for that position.

Wait. Sac got Rudy Gay? That's what I get for watching Football.

I love Barnes. I actually like him as a starter. Because of his toughness, D, slashing ability, rebounding and steals. Barnes is nothing to sneeze at. He's just not the offensive player of someone like Gay.

The problem is that we need a scoring threat at that spot. DJ gives no offense, cp3 doesn't always attack.

I tell ya what. Sac lost some good players. Vasquez and Patterson did a pretty good job against our guys.

That's true. I'm still thinking of the lineup with Redick. But we sure need some production from the 3 spot right now.

Exactly, Redick makes a Huge difference, with Redick I think we need a defensive minded 3 that can slash and rebound. I don't think we need someone who is essentially only a three point specialist at that spot.

I'd love to see DeRozan in a Clippers uniform. I heard Toronto may look to trade him as well, I think they're trying to dump all their long term salaries, I'd love to have him back home, playing SF/SG.

Yes yes and yes to derozan. I don't think we have anyone they want though. That is the problem.
