Repped High Quality Post

Take a guess on who. I assure you this is a quality signing! A type of player we really need to fill up one of the final few spots.

Well... its not really good or bad... hopefully he'll be third string and jordan would be second. But personally, I think they should've gotten David Harrison because he's younger (25) and a better defender than Elson.

Thanks for the heads up Henry. It sounds Elson since the Times mentioned the Clippers were talking to him.

Magic. Only other big i know out there.And i emailed thorpe about jordan. He thinks he might become a surprise. But he not only has to work on his game but also his mentality towards it. He will see min but not what we all want or think.

Young guy. I dont think he is a veteran big. I dont even think he has been deep in the playoffs.

Dont ask me why I said Foyle just throwing names out. I thought about that after i wrote him in. roll

BTW if we sign another big guy it won't bode well for Josh Powell's future as a Clipper. I'm not convinced that Elson (if he's the man) is better than Powell, however. It could be if we sign a big guy for the minimum and not pick up Powell's option, we could have more $ to offer some other player(s) than just the minimum.

If thehonoraryfan says its going to happen. its going to happen. He said we got Camby about 6 hours before espn. I think he knew about Camby even before Elgin did.

Brian Skinner? Nice! It would be great to see Brian back. I always thought he was a good player- he never got much of a chance in his first 3 years with the Clippers/NBA. Originally drafted by Elgin Baylor & the Clippers in the first round- he's pretty athletic and a good shot blocker/rebounder. Here are his career stats:

If it is true, Brian Skinner is a perfect fit and who I was hoping they would get. Great back-up to both Kaman and Camby.

Don't beat me up if this doesn't come through but yeah it's Brian Skinner.

Not to pat myself on the back but my source was all right on Baron Davis signing, EB ditching out, Marcus signing, Hart for Knight, and Ricky Davis, all hours to days before anything was published on any other website (at least the legit ones). I can't say more :X.

Again, I think this is a trade down. We should keep Powell because he was productive last year.

Also, Skinner is a living fossil! I'd rather have Elson. But again, I'd like to keep Powell.
