I wouldn't say he is horrible player. Of course he hasn't been great. His is athletic,and can play D. Has a shaky jumper. I just like his game. He would be wanted if we weren't loaded at SG. ....

Would Charlotte take back Dudley and hometown Bullock for their third center? Biyombo would help us with defense in the paint and help when our bigs are in foul trouble. Not sure how much Marion is looking for but we would have a little bit more money to work with. Or we can just get the kid from summer league to fill the SF spot. http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=pl9vq4m ....

I don't think the hornets do that because they are actually looking for a little more depth to back Jefferson and Bismack up too. ....

Didn't they just draft Vonleh? And don't they have Zeller? They would probably do this if they kept McBob. ....

How do you guys feel about Greg Oden? I really like the risk-reward ratio on him especially since it would be for the minimum. His agent said that he just wants to go somewhere where he has the opportunity to play. He played a total of only 23 games (starting in 6 of those games) and 212 minutes with the Miami Heat. Averaging 9.2 minutes, 2.3 rebounds, 0.6 blocks, 2.9 points, 55.1% FG, and 56.5% FT. With us I think....

Also I hate to be that guy but I honestly think we're stuck with Dudley till the end of his contract. Unless he bounces back this season and we off load him immediately, I don't see any team having any interest in taking on his contract no matter what we package around him. ....

I'm not saying to just off load him for nothing, I wasn't clear about that. Doubt anyone on here would even think/say such a thing, but I get how you thought that's what I meant. Though I am frustrated by his lack of production this past season. When I said no team had interest in him, I meant that there's no team who is interested in him that can give us something in exchange that will help out the team.....

Honestly, I'm not really sure we know how much of his potential Bullock can reach, we've seen too little to truly say either way, and at his draft position, you never know, it's up in the air. I hope he does develop into a nice role player though. We do need to understand that his ceiling is an above average role player, so we need to clarify what potential means here. Thing is, if we are upgrading, which a guy....

Pelicans fans like the idea of him a lot, I believe Sixers fans have said some similar things but more in a moving Thaddeus Young sense, so Dudley, expiring, Bullock and a second round pick kind of deal. If our sole goal was just to trade him, sure, we could, but we likely only want to trade him if it actually helps us, so we aren't just jumping at whatever comes our way. I'm assuming you know that there's no value....

Repped High Quality Post
I think it's in the best interest of the Clippers to wait till the trade deadline to part ways with our question mark players like Bullock and Dudley. No point in selling low right now when there's a better than good chance that they will both be better than last year, which essentially will drive up their value. And in a perfect world Dudley will return to PHX Dudley and we won't have to trade him.
In a perfect world (for....

I recon it's worth taking a risk on Okafor or Oden if we can get one of them on a vet minimum contract (preferably Okafor). Both offer the sort of rim protection we won't get from big baby or Hawes. Another option is Udoh if he'd be willing to take the minimum. You guys like any of these 3? ....

No to all those guys. IF Okafor was healthy he is a no brainer. But he hasn't played an entire season. His latest Injury a herniated disk in his neck, which obviously isn't healing properly. Oden is another injury riddled player. Why the hell would anyone want him? Udoh is str8 garbage. I'd take my chances with hollins over any of these guys. Hell I'd rather bring back Paul Davis. lol. ....

Oden, LOL. Remember when Heat fans were saying that Oden was going to be solution to all their problems with a lack of size, and people actually thought he was going to help him. Other than rejecting Blake in that one game last year, I don't even think I saw him play. Absolutely no way on Oden or Okafor(that neck injury really scares me.). Let's get someone who can actually run and up down the court without suffering a career....

I really like us looking at Okafor and Blatche. If we land Blatche I seriously can see Big Baby dropping out of rotation which isn't good because we need him playoff time and he might be out of shape if he isn't playing. If Okafor is healthy and can play. I can see him as a great pairing with Hawes. Either way. I can see BB falling out of rotation. I really want Okafor. Blatche is good. I kinda prefer them....

If you want rebounding/defense get Emeka. If you want scoring get Blatche. If Emeka is healthy in the workout he is a no brainer. He's played with Chris Paul before and he's a good character guy. I'm definitely not opposed to Blatche. I even would've considered giving him the full MLE if we couldn't have gotten Hawes. ....

Blatche is actually a really good defender and rebounder just sometimes he will hang on the high post a little more which can affect his rebounding numbers. If we could pick him up, combined with Hawes this would be a great off season!
Blatche is a good rebounder and a pretty good defender, but what I'm saying is Okafor is a lot better at those things and we need those things. Can't go wrong either way though. ....

Quite surprised about the lack of interest in Blatche, thought his time in NJ gave him more positive reviews. Our bigs are guys who have had very healthy regular seasons though, so where would the minutes come for a guy like Blatche? Basically we'd be looking at stocking 5 bigs who all require playing time. Two with 30+ (DJ and Blake) and then if you only played Blake 30 MPG, you'd have 36 minutes to share between 3 other guys....

Blatche would be ideal but maybe not a possibility. Too bad he's such a douchebag, he's a good player. Okafor would be a good 1-year rental if he's actually healthy. Bynum and Oden would be a waste of time imo. ....

Since we have 4 bigs already, unless we are saving a roster spot for something specific, Okafor is a good sign and stash and hope he's healthy. Really no risk since the team doesn't need a 5th big to have a solid big man rotation and the reward if he's decently healthy is good for the role. He could play like 10-12 mpg off the bench. ....
