Woj says that may determine whether or not they are in the run for Carmelo. So what are Melo's other options: Clippers, and Rockets? Maybe a few other teams with only a few having the chance to win
Clips are really the only option the Melo has. If Carmelo ended up with the Rockets we'd be watching the worst basketball with the highest level of talent. The ball would stick way too much. Carmelo, Dwight, and Harden are all DIVAS....

If the Bulls are going after Afflalo does that mean Jimmy Butler is on the block?

Jimmy Butler has been on the block since the season ended. If the Bulls were to make any kind of move for Melo, JB was going to be involved as well. Chicago is ok with letting him go. I think he should become their starter ....

Danny Granger, Glen Davis, and Darren Collison are all opting out of their contract. Danny Granger expressed interest in coming back to the Clippers, Collison and Davis did not express such interest. I think we should resign Granger. He played great and I think our system both defensively and offensively fits him perfectly. Just want to have money to get other significant players to help out the team. My hopeful lineup for the 2014-15 season. PG: Chris Paul, Shaun Livingston/Mo Williams/Kirk....

Love the lineup idea. But i would change just a few things. I would start Pierce over Granger due to the fact of Grangers injury and him not being back to All-Star form. And i honestly wouldn't mind us not keeping Granger because he playes no D. I think a SF rotation of Pierce and Barnes would be lethal. And i agree with the no no to Lebron and Melo. We already have two superstars in CP3 and Blake. We....

I have to agree on some of the points. First the bringing back Mo Williams, please no, second is starting Danny Granger, despite Kyle's vouching for him, Granger's defense wasn't great because fouling isn't great defense. Granger was okay on defense, but no better than Barnes or even Dudley during the time he was with us, just fouled way too much. Granger's offense was okay in the regular season but awful all playoffs, I'm not sure how all this equals....

Clipper Kyle has already spoken for me as far Danny Granger's performance. Second I really do believe that we can get Paul Pierce for a mil a season. He has two more good seasons left in him and I'm sure he knows that. I think being able to come home to LA, play under Doc again, play along side the rest of the Clippers, and having a great opportunity to be part of a win now team will lure Pierce.....

Both chances are realistic. Lebron could force his way to the Clippers if he really really wanted to. By either a trade or a pay cut. He said numerous of times that its not about the money, he just wants to win rings. So if he really means that, then he would be willing to take whatever the Clippers can afford to pay him to come over.....

Anything is possible.
... Honestly I wonder if KG retires and comes to the Clips as a coach. He would be coaching Pierce. Maybe Allen coaches as well. Doc reunites his team just in the bench with Pierce still playing. That would be hilarious. Replace Ty Lue and Gentry with Allen and Allen and KG. Jk I like the thought of KG though. idk how Melo would like that though ....

no more old players, we need some athlete's on the wing. I hate the warriors but they are going to be a lot better next year and play at a faster pace and we will need an athleteic wing player with some height to counteract that. we need a wing player that can run with BG and DJ and let CP bring up the rear rested and ready to run a play. When BG and DJ is running the court....

Wow, didn't expect that, but I think he's trying to get long term security over the money next year. We'd need to fork over at least $5M/year. Maybe give him years over salary amount. Caps, I'd take Frye over Gasol because he'll be more willing to a accept the 6th man role, I like his 3PT shooting and I think Gasol will be out of our price range. For example, Dallas is going after Gasol. Dallas only has $27M....

Oh and we have to have 1 of our wing players that can attack the damn rim, Slash and attack bigs at the rim. keep pressure on a defense. for instance if you have JJ out there then our SF should be able to create enough to get to the rim attacking, it would actually open JJ up more and our team would be more of a threat against any defense and we could react better to any off....

Trade Dudley in some way. Full MLE to Channing Frye. 3 year, $15.6 mil. Full BAE to Darren Collison. 2 year, $5 mil. Player Option 2nd year. Convince Dujuan Blair or Birdman to take minimum. Maybe we could package Duds & Barnes for a stronger SF... CP/DC JJ/Jamal Defensive PF/Pierce BG/Blair/Frye DJ/Frye or Birdman ....

If CP3 helps convince Melo or LeBron to take less money to come to the Clippers, it will help erase the horrible ending of Game 5, LOL. As much as I want one of these guys to be a Clipper this summer, it seems far fetched. Most of these sports writers are not even mentioning the Clippers as a possible destination. ....

Force his way to the Clippers? You mean forcing Riley to sign and trade him? I highly doubt Riley will eat up that salary with what we can offer just so he gets something in return. I'm not sure LeBron is not about the money. He made it clear that he wants to be the first billionaire athlete a while back. He's also mad that Micky Arison wants the big three to take pay cuts to keep them together. He's....

Try selling your comment to someone else who doesn't know the business side of the game. The NBA is a players league any superstar player if they want could force themselves where ever they desire. Example. Dwight Howard. Example. The now Kevin Love. Example. ..CP3. Example. ..Melo when he was with the nuggets.Shall i continue? Superstar players have a way of getting there way when they want to. And its about winning with Lebron. He's spoiled. He has been....

I'd love for KG to come on as a coach. I'm not high on any other of the old big 3 to come here though in any capacity. I'd love to get Frye here, and think he would be worth MLE, but we would have to solidify the 3 spot somehow (don't really think the MLE was going to do that anyway). If we can somehow get Livingston or Vasquez to come here for the BAE then that would....

Sefolosha could be a great option. If OKC trades for Iman, he will likely have a chip on his shoulder and want to show them up.
I'm all about bringing Sefolosha here as well. I think a different coach and change of scenery is just what he needs, his skill set would help us. ....

I'm not selling anything, I am just being a pragmatist. By the way, your examples are horrible aside from Melo. Howard wanted to go to the Nets as his first choice but ended up on the Lakers. He left after one year...First strike. CP3 wanted to go to the Lakers (brother confirmed it on CNN) but ended up with us....Strike 2. Kevin Love hasn't been traded and judging by his recent trip to Boston, if he isn't traded there...Strike 3.....

@ClipperKyle32, I don't think it's about wanting Sef over Shump; for me it's just not wanting to get into a bidding war with OKC. Shump looks like a younger (and in my opinion more dynamic) version of Sefolosha. If we could get Shump I think we should jump on it, but it depends what NY is trying to get and what OKC is offering for him. I do like that Sefolosha could come back with a chip on his....

You should really try studying your so called facts out before you comment. CP3 never wanted to go to the Lakers, and that came out of his own mouth! He was going to get traded there....not by choice. ..but by contract.... because at the time that is what New Orleans and the Lakers thought was best for there organizations at that time. But he CHOSE to come to the Clippers. Same scenario with Dwight. He was traded to the Lakers.....

Iman is listed at 6'5 and so is Sefolosha, and they are only a few pounds off of each other. I think if we get either that means JJ or Jamal are going on a one way trip somewhere else. I think Ariza will be getting more than the MLE, but think that a sign and trade is possible. We would have to unload Duds and probably one of Jamal or JJ's deals in the trade. Hill could back up....

The sarcasm is great! But let me educate you on something. CP3 had a players option back when he was with New Orleans. Which means that he can choose to return to the team, or be traded, or pick a team of your choice that best fit your family's financial situation. Now this was the back then when the NBA owned New Orleans. He could of returned to the team but CHOSE not to. So then he told his agent....

If you look at where they are in their careers you might be able to say the opposite. They are very similar players. It might depend on what you think their immediate future and next few years look like when determining who is better for us at this point. I think they are close enough, and if one could be had with less hassle than the other then I'd go for that one. If we can sign Sef....
