Not a big fan of Boozer but since he will be amnestied he would be a cheap option.He can definitely rebound and score but defensively isn't good.If Thibs can't get you to play consistent defense then you have a problem.But with the money we have to spend I would love to get Boozer for the cheap so we can use our MLE and BLE on other needs.So if this does happen my hope for our roster would be:

PG: CP3,Jameer Nelson(vet min)

SG: Redick,Shefolosha(BAE),Wilcox

SF: Deng(S&T Barnes,Bullock & Crawford to Cavs)Paul Peirce($2.15 Mill of MLE)Dudley

PF: Blake,Boozer

C: DJ,Ed Davis($3Mill of MLE)

I like Jameer , Sefolosha Backcourt.

Pierce

I doubt we grab Boozer maybe Josh Mcroberts

And Ed davis would be sweet

Let Boozer go to our across the hall rivals. He'd be a perfect fit for them. Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_02

As we all know the Rockets are all in on Melo and there's been rumors Chandler Parsons is on the block.... I wonder if there's anyway there could be a three team trade where Melo is sign and traded to Houston New York receives Jared Dudley Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes and the Clippers receive Chandler Parsons and Iman Shumpert... just an idea

3 team trades are rare... Lakers seem to take advantage of them often though.

That's a horrible trade for new York. I'm a huge fan of parsons though

But if NY knew that Melo wanted to go to Houaton they'd might as well get something for nothing right?

Not if they could use cap space to sign other people. Cap space>Barnes, Dudley, etc

Chris Paul, Darren Collison

Iman Shumpert, JJ Redick(6th man) CJ Wilcox

Chandler Parsons, Paul Pierce, Reggie Bullock

Blake Griffin, Glen Davis, Ed Davis

DeAndre Jordan, Jordin Hill, Glen Davis

This would be a sick team!

Having something that you don't specifically want isn't better than just saving money.

I guess Darren is leaving LAC. Collison is working on a deal with the Sacramento Kings. Sad

Just too expensive for us and we don't have the trade assets. It would be more be Knicks would get chandler parsons not us.

I think we should really look at al farouq and francisco Garcia for the bench. Either can probably be bad for cheap and would provide what we need: AFA provides rebounding and defense, Garcia 3 and D

Heard some buzz about Denver shopping Chandler don't know if the Clippers FO is interested Trevor Ariza certainly has been linked up to Los Angeles and we've heard and read about Paul Pierce reunited with Doc. So my question is who would be the ideal acquisition cap wise and talent wise?

How sad is it that we have no assets anyone wants even to make normal trades? Trading out stars would be a blockbuster trade.

Looking at what other team fans are saying, Crawford is old. That is why they don't want him and why we can't seem to get a trade going. 34 is old by nba standards.

Also, why don't we try to meet with Melo while he is in LA?? Not impressed

If we sign Ed Davis for $3mil of MLE, Carter for $2.2mil of MLE, Birdman for BAE, Toure Murry for Min, West for Min, Kaman for Min, trade Dudley and Bullock for Pierce I'll be extremely happy with our offseason.

PG: CP3 - Murry - West

SG: JJ - Jamal - Wilcox

SF: Pierce - Carter - Barnes

PF: Griffin - Davis - Kaman

C: Jordan - Birdman - Kaman

I spoke to steve kyler via email. He said clips fans should have low expectations this offseason. We won't get a superstar nor noticeable role players. Unless we do a S&T. Rivers is basically want players on the cheap.

Now that Shefolosha has signed with the Hawks I would really look at signing Alan Anderson.He is a big 2 guard who could be an x factor.He plays tough D and can get hot from 3.I remember DWill crossing up CP3 last year and CP3 came down the court looking to do the same to Anderson and Anderson completely shut him down and forced a jump ball.He is aggressive,tough,and I think is the perfect 2 guard for us.Don't know what his price tag would be but if we could get him for the BAE I think he would fit in great.

^^^^^^* that is what I said

PG - Paul - Toney Douglas/Delonte West/ ETC.

SG - Redick - Alan Anderson???? Dahntay Jones???? Mickael Pietrus????

SF - Deng - Pierce

PF - Griffin - Big Baby/Josh McRob

C - Jordan - Ed Davis/Okafor - Teams May Be Scared Of Him So We May Get Him For Cheap

Pierce and Anderson may have developed a relationship in BKN and may want to reunite wherever they may land

All depends on Anderson's asking price.Another option we could go would be Brandon Rush who might be available at the minimum.It's a bigger risk because of his injuries that took him out for almost both seasons the last 2 years.And when he could play he wasn't anywhere near his old form.But if we can get a healthy Rush for the vet min I would jump at that chance in case there's is even the slightest chance he can become the player he was 2 years ago.

Jason Smith isn't bad actually, he's a decent cheap backup PF/C who can shoot. Good other option when you realize that guys like Frye are our of your price range. Alan Anderson has a hero complex IIRC, he takes some bad shots. His last two seasons, 39.1% FG, 33.6% 3PT, I don't know, he's okay, he does put effort into D.

If Jamal Crawford is indeed traded for Ariza or Deng I believe Mike Miller would be a great replacement especially off the bench as our 6th man. He has good size great 3 ball decent defense and could come cheap maybe for Vet min.

Another Doc Rivers guy who might decide to play another year is Ray Allen who would be a great addition for the vet min.

Rumors Doc wants to use the MED on a big man not sure that is Glen Davis not sure Ed Davis is worth the full MED but if we'd split it between the two that would be ideal.

Jared Bayless is also an intriguing player who could replace DC and we won't miss a step from the depature of Darren, Jared is a better defender then Collison has a decent 3 ball and could be very valuable if we signed him for the Bae.

Chris Paul, Jared Bayless, Delonte West

JJ Redick, Ray Allen, CJ Wilcox

Loul Deng, Mike Miller

Blake Griffin, Ed Davis

DJ, Glen Davis

For all the people that miss the "genius" Neil Olshey, look at this great coup...

Chris Palmer @ChrisPalmerNBA 1 minute ago

Chris Kaman agrees to 2-year, $10M deal with Blazers, reports Woj.

$5mil for Kaman???

What the hell is Olshey doing?

All this tells me is that Ed Davis ain't coming cheap.

Maybe we can get Myers Leonard for cheap just to have another big body. I wouldn't have minded giving Kaman 4 or 5 if we had room for Davis and another vet min big.

The free agent market this summer is so weird. Teams are overpaying. Kaman will be able to play maybe 40 games next season and then the same the season after that. 10 million for 80 games of kaman

Best deal may come from Okafor seeing as Patty Mills had to take a pay cut.

Especially coming off the year he had for the lakers where he would fall asleep on the bench and not crack the rotation. If you can't crack last years Lakers rotation then you shouldn't be getting paid $5 mill a year haha

I know I don't get it. How often do 32 year old's go from Vet Min to $5mil a year?

Actually let me rephrase that. How often do 32 year old's go from Vet Min to $5mil a year after posting one of their worst seasons ever?

Trust me when I say this:

You don't want Meyers Leonard. You don't want him at all.

All this tells me is that Ed Davis ain't coming cheap.

Second year is only partially guaranteed. He'll make $4.8 million the first year, and only $1 million is guaranteed in the second year. That makes the deal somewhat better. Kaman will give us more bench firepower, which is always nice. On the other hand, he's going to get injured halfway through the season, and he'll be a complete defensive liability.

Eh, screw it. Not like our second unit played much defense to begin with anyway.

Neil Olshey is the Vinny Del Negro of GM's. He'll get your crappy team into the playoffs, but don't expect much more than that.

He wasn't getting paid vets minimum last year but I still think he got overpaid with this contract with the Blazers.

Outside of the games played, Kaman was no worse last year than he was with Dallas, and his year with New Orleans was even worse outside of the fact that he got more minutes which makes it seem like he played better.

Hahaha yeah i totally agree. I like him as a person, nice funny kid, but as a basketball player, he's 90% trash. Blazers need to send him to the DLeague for the first half the season so he can get some playing time and some confidence.
