Wow. If Doc doesn't pull off a trade I'm going to turn on him quick. As a coach he's been great. As a GM he's been terribly mediocre. We have the best combo of SG's in the NBA. We need a center or SF! Stop f***** around Doc.

This is horrible... Doc is officially a terrible judge of talent. Dudley, hollins, Mullens, and now vujacic.

I'm hoping there is a bigger trade coming up. I think we're one trade away from being serious title contenders. As is, we could probabably make it to the 3rd round...maybe.

I don't know why, he's been saying every single post game interview that he thinks he needs another Guard. We do need a backup Center though, But I think Doc may be content with the ones we have. Or he might want to sign someone and then make a trade, IDK and I don't care, as long as we keep winning like we are then I'm good.

We can't win against the top teams so having a great record won't matter come playoffs. We aren't built to go deep.

There has to be some type of huge trade hopefully not involving CP3 Griffin JJ Crawford DJ or Collison. Hopefully we sign him to put him in the trade as a filler or to fill out our team because of people leaving in trades

Clips have got to be doing things under cover. Negotiations for Chris Paul started way early without anyone knowing. I really suspect. Huge deal is in place that could solidify our team. If we can dish off Mullens and Jamison and someone.

Turk when he gets the rhythm will help this team. He put up 6-5-3 in 14 mins.

I like Hollins as a 3rd Stringer. Not a back-up in the playoffs

Dudley when he gets healthy will pay dividends with this team. He is a little passive now because of his uncertainty and unhealthiness.

Willie is Mr.Always Ready

Barnes is banged up. Hopefully he is ready and back after All-Star

I like our team but we do need Small Forward contribution and Big Man Help. Blake and DJ look tired on some nights and who do you put in? Turk and Hollins? Ewww No. Not come playoff time buddy.

I feel a move in the makes. Maybe a team knows they are lottery bound and/or they know their small forward is leaving in free-agency and are going to trade him. Who knows. I just feel there will be a great move for the franchise or these signings will pay huge dividends or come back to bite everyone in the a**

I really do not understand this signing, if Chris is coming back SOON. Is someone hurt? These moves don't happen just to happen there has to be a meaning to it. Until we find out... I still just feel a good trade coming our way. Whether it be for A big or a Forward.

None of the Carmelo-Blake trade crap better come up again. I hope Doc was truthful when he said what he said about the trade. Blake and Chris ultimately better not be moved

Who says we can't win against top teams? What teams can't we

beat? We can beat anybody with our fully healthy roster.

People seem to forget We are 4th seed playing

most of the season without key guys.

I call bullshit on your post. We can beat any team and

are already built to go really deep in the playoffs.

I love how you're all ready to jump off a cliff like lemmings over a 10 day contract. Do I know why Doc wants to sign Vujacic? No. But am I going to panic and overreact at any time before the trade deadline hits? Absolutely not. Weren't you lot crying and moaning about Turkoglu as well? He's turned out pretty well last I checked. Of course, this doesn't mean Vujacic will be a good fit, but Doc deserves the benefit of the doubt.

Again, it's a 10 day contract. If Vujacic doesn't work out, he won't be given another one. Simple as that. I could understand if we were going to sign him for the rest of the season, but y'all seriously need to back away from the cliff and get a grip.

Right now Willie Green is getting minutes and playing pretty bad, Doc probably just wants to see if Vujacic can help more than Green. He's also big enough to maybe let Dudley rest some if we want another shooting wing player.

I don't think this is the time to panic either. Why not give Sasha a ten-day contract? Let's see what he's got left in the tank. He was a good part of the championship Lakers once upon a time. Perhaps Doc sees something that would be a good fit for the team. We don't know all the details really. For all we know, there is a huge trade being worked on and this is just a stopgap measure until then. Clippers are doing well without their best player and trade deadline isn't even in the horizon yet. If this were February 19th and no trade in the works, perhaps that'll be a good time to panic. lol

If Doc wants to sign him to make a big secret trade that pushes our team forward the great but mabe it is more mundane than that. after all it is only a 10 day contract. Collison is carrying an injury and we don't have a genuine PG back up while Chris is out so maybe he justs wants someone to fill in until CP is back.

I think Doc liked Morris' size and Vujacic is 6'7" too.

No signature wins since early December. This year and last, we've piled up wins against top teams early in the year when they're not in sync and then can't beat them later in the year when they start to gel.

At least Sasha is only on a 10-day. But the obsession with backup guards is getting ridiculous when everyone knows how weak our backup bigs are. I hope a trade is coming, because this current roster is not going deep in the playoffs.

even then, he's a guard, Sasha is not playing SF. I seriously doubt Jamal or Redick are getting traded, at least I hope not.

Since we beat San Antonio on Dec 16, we've only played 3 games against top teams, all road back to backs, two without Paul. The one with Paul we lost in overtime.

Too many guards.. Our biggest area of need is at the 4 or the 5 i don't see why we can't bring somebody there to see if they can make a difference

Who on this team is immovable in your opinion?

For Me its CP3, Blake, Reddick, DJ, Crawford and Collison.

I think a trade is coming I just hope none of those players listed above are moved. Anyone else I'm fine with. I still think we need to keep Barnes - Every team needs that crazy guy no one will mess with.

Thunder - Perkins

Pacers - West

Heat - Birdman

I hope we move Mullens and Jamison and maybe Duds and get a quality SF and Big Men. I just have a feeling a huge well not necessarily huge but significant trade that hopefully doesn't involve CP3 or Blake,DJ, Reddick, Crawford, Collison will be made to push this team over the hump. I am just waiting for Carmelo Anthony to tweet something like "Welcome To LA Baby!" And Blake tweets something like "Still Here..."

I don't understand this signing if it happens.

It seems like Doc signs players he has a man crush on such as JJ, Turkoglu, and now Vujacic.

We've been doing fine without a back up PG

JJ was a great find and Turk is doing great right now..

With that being said our guards rotation is solid i don't get the love with the guards.. we need a banger in the paint offensively and defensively not another shooting guard.

Doc is starting to irk me with these signings, I hope in his mind he knows we really need a big and has something up his sleeves to bring one here.

Crawford gets minutes at SF and Vujacic is bigger and better rebounder than Crawford. He's the same height as Dudley, it wouldn't be surprising to see him get a few minutes at SF, addition to whatever minutes he might get from Green.

People kept talking about Turkoglu as an SF before we signing, but he's played pretty much exclusively at PF. Doc doesn't seem to mind playing guys up a position from where they've played in the past.

I heard people that Turk is old, slow and waste of time but now people bashing Turk before are now praising him, I believe Vujasic is a good back up he has the speed that i like to compliment Blake DJ, jamal and CP3, and he can hit 3. unlike Jackson. Lets just give him 10 days instead of judging Doc's ability to pick a player.

I don't think Doc will make a trade of Jamal, He is our 4th quarter man since CP3 is down. Doc give him full control of the ball together with Blake and Darren. If we will make a trade it should be Hollins, Mullens Dudley Jamison, I may include Green and Barnes if necessary.

Key words. 10 day contract. I have no clue why anyone would be mad about this considering its only a 10 day. Turkoglu was a pleasant surprise. I thought he would be done but was wrong. Hopefully Sasha still has something left.

I believe Doc is already shopping for a big man and he knows the deadline so relax guys, he has assistant coaches who knows better than us.

@BA_Turner: Sasha Vujacic will meet team in Denver and will be ready to play Monday night against Nuggets, sources.

We will see... That Is all I can say. I still think Doc is bringing him in to test how he is with the team and if he looks good they will sign for rest of season and then make a trade with someone and Sasha will take the person traded aways spot in the rotation. That Is what this all boils down to for me. Sasha is a 6'7 SG/SF with shooting and ball handling. He may take a Barnes , Dudley or Greens spot in the rotation if one of those players are traded away

Sasha is 6'7, but is wirey thin and has supposedly been a SG/PG, though I remember him playing little PG after he first came to the league, but generally on the wings. You can play him spot minutes at SF though, why not. Not necessarily sure I get the signing, maybe he's being signed as a backup "PG" in the sense of just another ball handler and to take Willie Green's role since Green really can't play that role.

Please remember folks, if we really want to receive something of value we have to give something of value. That means outside of Blake and CP3, I would consider any trade that improves us significantly. (Unless of course we trade Blake for Lebron or Durant lol)

I think a lot of people forget this. People want to trade our scrubs and get back a good player. That only works if you are giving up draft picks, which we can't do.

We'll have to give up some players we like or that are decent to get someone really good back unless we tag on to a multi-team trade or get a special situation

Really makes no sense unless JJ can't play because Green is doing backup PG duty in spots. Should be using 10 days on D league bigs hoping to find a deal. This could also mean a trade is about to happen.

If we do trade Jamal, this is the prime time do so. He's putting up some pretty good stats. Maybe Denver wants his scoring off the bench to replace Robinson.

Just send us Kenneth Faried and we'll call it a day. LOL, but seriously I'd take Timofey and Hamilton off their hands for Jamal and Hollins.

Not sure why people think Doc is stupid. Trade is coming, or at least will be attempted (that's why it's a 10

Day)

Maybe, I would like to see some more defenders acquired though, of course I've said that since the first move of summer. I thought the perfect compliment to Dudley was a more defensive guy, but we got Barnes who is a bit of a defensive guy, but kinda old, but I'm still taking a wait and see approach, obviously they aren't just doing random stuff.
