As much as I was excited about Dudley joining the Clippers Dudley has yet to be consistent. I'm not a fan of Barnes starting neither Barnes role is a lot better of off the bench as a leader of the second unit. I'm waiting for Doc to give Bullock the green light to start. With the little minutes Bullock has played I have definitely been impressed especially for a rookie with minimal playing time. Than the Clippers have Hedo who has been descent for a player who hasn't played in a season and a half.
If the Clippers do decide to trade Dudley than I'm hoping the Clippers can get a small forward that can not only start but focus on defending. A power forward would be better.
Here are my two proposed trades:
A) Dudley and Jamison for Wilson Chandler from Nuggets - This dude has good size, can score and rebound, and is a solid defender. A little bit of Doc can take Chandler to the next level. Only 27 years old. Salary $6.5 million.
B) Dudley and Jamison for Brandon Bass - Undersized but this dude works hard every night. Solid mid range shot and low post game. Already knows Doc's system. No better player to rotate Blake with.
The Nuggets and Celtics will miss the playoffs so it shouldn't be that tough to get a deal going but that's just an assumption.
