There are a lot of fringe PFs and centers playing in China that might be ok. Ivan Johnson obviously, but also Chris Johnson, Shelden Williams, James Singleton, Hakim Warrick, Hamed Haddadi, Shavlik Randolph, Johan Petro, Peter Ramos and few other guys that I'm not as familiar with that are putting just as good or better numbers than those guys. Pretty much every team in China has big man that would usually be fighting for roster spot in the....

Shavlick is also interesting to me, since he's played with Doc and probably is familiar with his system. I want Ivan, because he is a hard nosed player. I think that is not found as often as you'd think in basketball. In football, I think it is a common theme; but not in basketball. It is something we have missed since Reggie and Kmart left, and Elton before that. We get it to an extent from CP....

Ivan Johnson would be my first choice from the group too, mostly because he's had the most recent success in the NBA. Shelden Williams would probably my second choice, he's also tough, played for Doc on of one the teams that made the finals, and he's probably been the best player in China this year. He was a big disappointment because he was drafted so high, but as scrappy bench player he had an ok NBA career. I'm also....

No, I saw the Rhinos stats from last season. Haven't found anything more current on him. I thought Ike Diougu was going to make a resurgence with us too, but haven't heard anything on his front. There was a few teams flirting with Ike, but that's it. I do get a little nervous that Doc has a little bit of infatuation with players that were problems for his teams in the past. I know this is my....

I don't hate Johnson by any means, but we're acting like he's going to save the season or something. He had pretty mediocre stats while he was in the NBA, "toughness" aside, and he's too short IMO to be an effective power forward. I say no to Ivan Johnson. If we just stay patient and wait until nearer to the trade deadline, we'll be rewarded with an actual NBA-caliber third big instead of pining for scraps in China. ....

Ivan Johnson would be a nice pickup. He's undersized, but he is strong, and as a backup he can play both positions for LAC in limited minutes. He has a career average of about 15MPG, which is all the team will likely need him for. 6.6 pts and 3.9 rebs is very good for 15 minutes. ....

I don't think Doc would give Darko another shot. We could make the argument that with Byron, he might realize that he has seen worse now. As far as Ivan or any other back up big available being the savior of the team, is something that is being taken out of context. I think we all can agree that Blake and DJ are living up to expectations. Again I think we can all agree that our back up....

Our backup bigs would make Ivan Johnson look like Charles Barkley. Lets not act like our backup bigs aren't 3rd string rotation scrubs at best. Ivan Johnson is a very solid defender and good on the glass. Also a decent free throw shooter. He isn't a savior or THAT great by any means but he is still WAY better than the poor excuse for bigs we have sitting on the bench.
Oh, the current backup bigs are scrubs. You won't....

I wouldn't mind signing him, personally I would have preferred him to Turkoglu. He can be a headcase, but not in the sense of not wanting to play. He has a temper, reminds me of Kmart. I think Atlanta will be signing him quickly, I hope we can sneak him away with the temptation of getting more attention on a bigger market. ....

This and also his team isn't a real title contender, so maybe they made a deal to get out of paying him a little or he might even had a buyout written into his contract. They immediately signed Mike Harris from Jazz to replace him as one of their two American players they are allowed. They love rugged undersized PFs in that league. ....

I agree with @toohipcliptoslip, Hollins isn't really that bad. He should be our 3rd string center, not our 3rd big man off the bench though. I think the difference between him and Mullens makes Hollins look good too. In Byron's two minutes last night, I thought I missed something and DJ was hurt. I was ready to turn the tv off. My issue with Hollins is he makes a lot of those little mistakes that....

Here is the story on Ivan. ESPN says he's likely to sign for minimum and that Clippers are interested! I'm all for this as his PER was 15.8 last year in NBA. "Ivan Johnson free to sign NBA deal January, 23, 2014 Forward Ivan Johnson decided to play in China this season instead of signing with an NBA team after none would match his asking price. Last week there was a report that several NBA teams have interest in talking to him once....

I would take a look at Dashawn Stevenson. This is only because we are bringing in Vucevic. Why not bring a guy known for defense, that has a serviceable yet inconsistent shot. At least you know he will do all the other things. As we have seen shot comes and goes. Defense, rebounding, passing, and effort seem to be more of a consistent thing. I'm ready to bring Ike Diougu at this point. ....
