Maalik Wayns and the Ticking Clock Just a quick note to observe the fact that Maalik Wayns has been activated by the Clippers. (Ben Bolch has it at the end of this article here for the....

I actually like having Jack around. He seems really engaged and helping mentor our guys.

I would like to see Wayns waived to get a legit big, not sure who though. Alternatively, at least waive him to keep a roster spot open so we can wait and see what we really need the most later in the season.

It's hard because every single one of these waivable players is enthusiastic and seems to like being a Clipper...and, in the case of Jax, a positive influence on the team. But I suppose it's inevitable that one or two of these guys will have to leave for someone we need more.

Well I am really glad we can open up a spot by getting rid of Wayns. I am also glad that it could mean we see a proper back up big soon.

The Orlando Magic will waive forward Hedo Turkoglu at 5 p.m. on Friday, reports the Orlando Sentinel's Brian K. Schmitz. The roster move is a long time coming for the Magic, who have retained the....

Odom seems to be the realest option and Bynum seems to be a good option. With those two I feel really confident we can make some nice noise.

I'd rather play the wait and see with Bynum. He's a game changer.

What If We Can Get Both Bynum and Odom Bynum put up 36 against the Clippers against Deandre Jordan Both of them could make serious noise for us! It would cost us Wayns and Jackson unless we trade....

If we can get bynum that would be the best case scenerio. But for

his contract minimum there will be quite a few teams interested.

Odom at this point is worse case scenario. Already missing 3rd

of the season including camps Odom realistically probably

won't be as effective as many expect.

Maybe his defense. But honestly at this point we need

some bench scoring. And Odom was painfully to watch

offensively last year, but made up in defense.

Hedu and Odom together may be interesting. What odom

lacks in offense Hedu could give us, and what Hedu lacks

in defense odom could give us.

The problem with Hedu is he is really slow and looks

out of it most of the time. Might kill the clippers style of play.

Bynum put up 36 against the Clippers against Deandre Jordan

Both of them could make serious noise for us!

It would cost us Wayns and Jackson unless we trade for Bynum which I don't see happening

Then I feel sorry for whoever plays us in the playoff

If we get Bynum and Odom this will lead us more than WCF.

I did see a quote saying the Lamar was still on the radar and our players want him. Where is Greg Oden? Didn't he do something with Miami? http://www.latinopost.com/articles/2744/20140103/lakers-los-angeles-la kers-lakers-news-and-rumors-pau-gasol-pau-gasol-trade-rumors-nba-trade -rumors-nba-nba-trade-rumors-2014-andrew-bynum-cleveland-cavaliers.htm http://sports.yahoo.com/news/trading-andrew-bynum-boston-celtics-could -parties-involved-172500331--nba.html http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2014/1/3/5267196/andrew-bynum-injury-suspe nsion-cleveland-cavaliers He's an interesting guy. The only problem with a trade is that he doesn't have to play. What if he decides to be "injured"? If he retires whomever will have a big hole which is unfillable with a Free Agent this late. What of he decides....

i say we either let go of wayns or mullens possibly trade him somewhere for money or second rounder. Sign bynum and odom. Our bench would definitely be deadly and deep.

Paul/Collison

Reddick/crawford/green/bullock

Dudleybarnes/jackson

Griffin/jamison/odom

Jordan/bynum/hollins

Holy hell. Whoever thought DJ was a capable NBA player and that Vinny not playing him was the reason he wasn't effective really needs to watch that Andrew Bynum video.

That's probably the worst defense I've ever seen. Man, he's come a long way thanks to Doc.....not because of more minutes.

Again, he was always very capable and much better then some here gave him credit for. Just another positive good sign when a young player is getting even better.

If he is talking about getting cut what does he have to really be mad about? He is a d-leaguer. Of course they'd cut him for proven talent.

Or maybe he cannot be cut bc he is guaranteed?

Miami has Oden for $900,000. He worked out Dec 27th. Will he be able to play at all? Spolstra said Greg would be saved for the PO's if he can play.

If you're Miami do you gamble on a guy who basically always been injured who wants to play versus a guy who's been injured maybe half of his career but has an attitude problem and may not want to play at all. Do they cut Oden? Also if they trade which they won't they have to eat his salary.

As I understand this and I can't do math Miami has 15 players and a salary of ~ $83.9 mil and hard cap is $71,748,000.

Does this mean anything??

I think you guys are spot on about Maalik going bu-bye. The paper today said although activated and even in uniform, he limps around the practice facility and is not really game ready. He was activated for a reason.
