I'd be stoked if Jordan hill signed for the BAE and Ariza signed for the MLE. Aria is that 3&d guy, Hill helps rebounding when DJ goes to the bench.
The BAE is only like $1.7mil. You think Hill would sign for that cheap? That would be ideal if he did. ....

Anyone else feeling depressed about this off season? No draft pick to really salivate over, agonizing end to playoffs, sterling/ownership drama, confusion over whether any free agents would come here (we had been counting on this situation being so desirable that people might cut their rate like collison to play here but I don't see that happening).oh and no cap space
Are you serious? We're on the verge of FINALLY being rid of Donald, aren't you the slightest bit....

It'll be great to finally have a good respected owner. Getting all the Sterlings out will be huge for the Clippers. It's going to be a great future for the Clips once the Sterlings are no longer casting a black cloud over the organization. Imagine the possibilities with new owners! Oprah? Ellison? Geffen? How about Magic and his billionaire group? There will be others, I'm sure, that will want to own the Clippers. Good times ahead, Clippers Nation! ....

How could we not afford Carmelo when Lakers, had Kobe, Nash, Dwight, Pau, and Artest.

The better question is, "Why do so many people here want a ball-stopper like Carmelo?" I would much rather have Deng than Melo. He'd be way cheaper and could actually defend. It's a moot point though, because I don't think either of them will is willing to take big enough of a pay cut to play with the Clippers. ....

Are you serious? We're on the verge of FINALLY being rid of Donald, aren't you the slightest bit excited about how this is going to play out? Succeeding in this league is very political, and we were NEVER gonna win with him at the helm. By next year, the league will give us a chance to win
I want him gone but I don't want the process to drag on and on. ....

Please. My only wish...truly the only very single last wish ...is for the Clippers to bring back Eric Bledsoe back. Offer the Suns a contract they can't match or do a sign and trade for him and send a future 1st pick. We lost against a more athletic OKC bc we didn't have anyone who could stop Westbrook. If we wouldve had him instead of Redick playing SG, we wouldve done a better job. I swear if I were the....

I believe the Bulls trade for Kevin Love. If the Lakers or Warriors got him. It would be crazy in the West. The only reason Melo was a ball stopper is because he had to be. Maybe not as much in Denver , but the dude is a scorer. Especially in NY. He had to score for them to have a chance at winning. George Karl and Mike Woodson aren't Doc Rivers. I do worry about Melo's attitude. Therefore that....

I hope K Love goes to GS. 3 players in their starting lineup that don't play defense and just stand behind the arch. Sounds like the easiest defensive assignments ever for us. If he's smart he'll go to Chi town where his teammates can make up for his non existent defense. ....

I love Bledsoe, and seemingly more than most here who didn't want to play him at SG and said he needed to be moved, but his price tag just shot up, and now he's restricted to Phoenix. We can't overpay him, so any reasonable offer we can give, they will match, and he would have to accept the offer first. Can't even see why he would accept what would be an MLE offer at best from the Clippers when he....

Don't tell me you think Jasen Powell is responsible for our injuries this year. He didn't slam Chris to the ground to separate his shoulder. He didn't pay Cousins to body check JJ causing his bad back. He didn't jam Chris's thumb against the Warriors. All our players were as healthy as possible in the Thunder series. ....

Not really sure how we become a better team by adding more offense and losing defense. We didn't always shoot well, but what we did do was produce efficient offense in the post-season (low turnovers, shooting well, FT's, whatever it took). Our problem was that our defense was not good enough, so I'm not sure how we are getting to another level as a team with this. I guess we're going Phoenix Suns route and just going to beat them....

My first priority is having players that don't foul out after 19 minutes like Blake and DJ who are absolutely not superstars or stars for that matter in the eyes of the officials. I am so tired of favortism, if we lose we lose, but I can't watch us get jobbed by the zebras anymore. CP + Melo + Blake = star power (assuming Blake eventually gets respect)
Melo doesn't get a lot of calls either, is vastly....

Much agreed. I say let players like Dudley and Hollins go , but you still have to address the problems we had. We lost all defensive capabilities when the bench touched the floor. We couldn't get steals and get out in transition. It turned into a shoot out with this years bench. I say we keep Big Baby and pair him with a center --- my preference Brandon Wright out of Dallas. Dude is gold for us. Sogn a player like....

Gordon Hayward i like a lot. I also like Delonte West a lot and on a team like ours we can handle his eccentricities that's part of the reason in getting a Coach like Doc, I think good teams need at least 1 or 2 of those type of bone headed players as long as you have the personnel to handle it.

If we miss out on big name small forwards, I wouldn't mind giving Wes Johnson a shot. Up to now I've been a huge Johnson hater because I've watched him for years and the guy just doesn't have the mind of a basketball player. But after what Doc pulled with DJ, I think anything is possible. Wes Johnson has got the physical attributes to be one of the best SFs today. ....
