Relax people, it's only 10 day contracts. Geez, you guys expect that Doc will cut the cord or something.

That May happen in the summer, if MIA don't win a ship and LAC don't get as far as we want.

LeBron tells Pat I'm leaving, trade me to Clips, Pat calls and ask for Blake in return. Lol

Who says NO!

Money, he was getting paid around 2 million Euros after taxes, that is about $5 million in the NBA. He got one NBA contract about that big, but he wasn't going to get another one.

If we're going to continue the theme of signing Laker leftovers this season, we should at least look at a big instead of another wing. A guy like DJ Mbenga would've made more sense.

Feel free. I think everyone in Clipper-nation said that.

Read some of the comments and i hope they are right about a potential trade.

Though, one question:

What are we getting in return for Jamison? or W. Green?? or Hollins??? Or dare i say it.....MULLENS?????????????

The only viable trade asset we have is Reggie. Even still, he may not be enough.

I don't get why they would sign him. We don't need more shooting. We have a great offensive team. We just need a big who can play good defense for 10-15 minutes, but I do hope a trade is going to happen BC it doesn't make sense to sign him when CP3 should be coming back in a week or so.

If there's anybody here knows, I'm sure they will answer your question but like you,... we have no clue. the only thing we can do is complain. lol! But Doc might experiment to use him as SF since he has the height and speed, can hit 3 and good defense. and Dudley might be gone in a few weeks.

Would be really messed up to bring Sasha in to play over Reggie if Dudley is dealt.

Its wait and see with Doc and his GM moves I was with Turk being on but this one is confusing. Won't make a big deal until its shown what role is Sasha suppose to play for us.

We're already giving Willie Green minutes over Bullock, who cares if its Vujacic instead.

Hi guys. I'm new here. That signing would just make our offense better and our defense worse. It's only a ten day though.

I know it's just a 10 day contract, but why not go for a Shannon Brown while he was available, Dashawn Stevenson, Mickeal Pietrus or even a Josh Howard who has a bit more size. Someone a little more defensive minded would have been nice. As bad as Stak was playing he was probably our best wing defender while he was here.

The problem I have with the pattern of all the signings is that they are all offensive minded players. He won with quite a few defensive minded players in Boston. He didn't make them defensive minded players, they were known for their defensive prowess. You can't make chicken salad out of chicken $hit.

I'll be the first to admit that I've been surprised by Hedo, but I still would have preferred an Ivan Johnson or Odom to fill in that roll. Too be honest he has exceeded expectations in large part because the expectations I had for him were extremely low. He has played a lot more of how I expected Jamison to play out for us. He still won't provide a boost defensively. For those that say he is running well, he still looks like he moves in slow motion; but makes up for it with a high basketball IQ.

Personally as much as I like Ivan Johnson, I think we have to fill in the back up center position. With that said, a larger body is probably more of what we need. Ivan would have been ideal for the back up 4, where we currently have Hedo at. Maybe we can make a trade for Mahini, if Bynum shows promise for them.

^^ hedo creates match up problem in the west that's why. We're not gonna lose in the west because we don't have a back up center, we're gonna lose because the SF position play defense and score inconsistently. There's no identity whatsoever.everyone on this team have found who they're are except the SF position

Did he sign yet. Is he going to play today againts Nuggets? Well i think Doc is having headache looking for a team to accept Mullens and Dudley for a big. But i'm sure Doc will get LO in due time.

I thought we lost last year because we had no center to stop Gasol. Add in Z-Bo and Conley and we had our hand filled up front for sure. I thought all the SF's were three and defense guys with their own special punch.

Just read article on clippers signing Sasha vujacic on lake show life. It says he will join the following ex-lakers on the clippers: matt Barnes, Antwan Jamison, and CHRIS PAUL! These laker fans are just like... What am i supposed to say? Confused

I'm sure laker fans have very fond memories of CP3's time as a laker. They sure as hell haven't been very good "without" him.

Honestly it will depend on the matchup. Best to have all fronts covered, but the SF is certainly the weakest position on the team right now.

All were looking for is a player to be even against other benches as a back up big. The current guys are negative. I'm not really sure what if anything can be done at SF. If Barnes/Dudley played at the average production of their last 3-4 seasons, that's above average SF production. So despite my criticism of signing Barnes, his production this year is still not on the management, the guys are underperforming, yes for a myriad of different reasons, but it is still the reality.

that's the one trade I'd make that sends Blake out. But only if he extends contract to the same length as Blake's.

Riley would probably call and demand Blake+CP for Wade+Bron. Then what do you do??? I don't think I'd do it.

Repped High Quality Post

^ roll

Yeah... I didn't like the way he sat on the bench, either. Because it's not like we could terminate a 10-day if something better came along... and even if we could, think of the money!

I mean, I can barely pay my electric bill because the Clippers signed Vujacic to a pro-rated contract for 10 whole days! Sh*t, how will I eat if they pick him up for the season?

I feel for you, man. A whole 4 days on this forum and we still haven't won a chip yet. I just don't know how fans like you keep the faith.

#BlameSasha ...it's got "trending" written all over it.

If the return is better than equal anybody is expendable IMO, if it came down to it Blake is the only clipper I would keep
