I don't think we'd be in the market to absorb his unworthy contract, but if for some reason they can't get anyone else to bite and stretch waive his contract. Then maybe. ....

Knicks signed Jeremy Tyler last night. Not exactly unprecedented (probably the most likely signing after the invite), but I think this pushes them lower on the hunt for Ivan Johnson. They could still sign Johnson of course, but even by playing KMart at C again and giving Tyler scarce minutes, Johnson would be the third PF behind Bargnani and Stoudemire (yeah some injury issues but still). If we even dangled the minimum (which is about half a million less than....

Read somewhere that Lou Amundson was practicing at the clips facility. I know that doesn't mean much, but I think that's how we picked up Barnes last season. Fantastic big man defender and a great offensive rebounder, but his offense and touch at the charity stripe leave a lot to be desired. I'd still love him on our second unit though. Between Crawford, collison, and Barnes (might be tempted to start him so Dudley can help cover up for some....

Z-Bo punching Amundson was possibly my favorite memory of him as a clipper. That, and the game-sealing shot against the Celtics. But yeah, I dislike Amundson and he's been awful for a while now. ....

I would openly take Lou Amundson in a reserve role with open arms. With the players we've been looking at instead, he's probably one of the better options left and one of the leftover bigs that has garnered interest from quite a few teams. And on the other side, Ivan Johnson is barely discussed by the media. No legitimate Clipper interest in Ivan Johnson, but I read once that there are a few teams that were considering him as one....

I kinda miss Mo. Played well when he was with us. I wish him well. On other free agency news, Tolliver narrowed his options to either the Bulls, Bobcats, or the Jazz. Looking at Bulls blogs, no one is happy about the consideration and think it'd be a terrible addition. And Chris Duhon is getting interest from teams now? That's a good indication that we've waited far too long to add another player... ....

id rather take my chances in an undrafted guy than duhon. i like amundson as a hustle big man with mullens as a scorer. If we cant get Ivan, of course. The third choice would be Davies ,if we cant get any of them. and I dont like wayns. The summer league performance didnt impress me at all. With the firepower of the 2nd unit, not sure how does a shoot first pg fits here. ....

Another guy who outsmarted himself. He doesn't make a stink about starting, he probably gets resigned by Utah for a lot more money. And who knows, maybe Utah wouldn't have taken the GS salary dump and Iggy is in Dallas instead. One domino can affect the whole off season for a team. He made 8mil last year, he probably could have gotten at least the....

Yup, Mo won't be playing much with Lillard, Wes Mathews, and CJ there.
Agree completely. A shame that players like Mo don't embrace that 6th man role because he has all the skill sets to be successful in that role. The big thing for us is that he went to Portland rather than a true contending/high tier team. Lillard averaged more minutes at PG than anybody else in the league his rookie season. The idea may be to provide some relief?....

Why haven't we signed Tyrus Thomas yet? I think he would be the perfect addition.

So you'd want to pass on a back up big who can get under zbo's skin? He's awful on offense, but the man can still defend and grab boards, not to mention piss people off with his energy. ....

I don't really get it completely from some of these players perspectives. If I was a young big or an agent for one, I would take a flyer with a contending team like ours to build a rep. Ivan Johnson, Blair (I know he signed elsewhere), Tyrus, Daye could (have) really benefit(ed) financially from having one solid year with us. Any one of those guys would play significant minutes on this team. ....

The bigs I like the most from the lists are Ivan Johnson and Louis Amundson.These guys bring toughness,energy,defense,and rebounding.Johnson is the better offensive player and Amundson is the better defender.Another guy I wouldn't mind having i is Kurt Thomas.Wouldn't want him as a main rotation guy but more in a role like Grant Hill and Willie played last year.He is old but is still a solid defender and I think would be a good mentor for DJ and Blake. ....

Then there's Chris "No Defense" Wilcox. Drafted by the Clippers, played under Doc, and another candidate for complete elimination from speculation. EDIT: AND Amar'e Stoudemire was the next pick taken in that 2002 draft. ....
