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.

Must be a veteran big man, that's our only hole left. Damn, this is the most suspenseful offseason we've ever had!

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.

So is there going to be anyone else?

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.

I'll spill the beans if the word isn't out by Sunday; but to give you a hint, he's a former Clipper!

Honorary Fan, how do you know this? Maybe I missed it on another post or something, but how are you getting this insider information.

Regardless, I appreciate it. I love getting news before it's out!

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.

Does Elgin actually do anything? I think Mike is the one pulling all the pieces.

I'm not saying anymore, I've already said a lot Smile. But I thought you guys deserved to know it first!

David/redshocker/clipperfan, appreciate the props! I wouldn't spill rumors here unless I thought they were fairly true.

Former Clipper... Did with just get Brand's fat ass back?

my guesses would be, Lorenzen Wright or Brian Skinner...they are the only FA big men currently available. Unless we resurrect Kandi, I am going with those 2 choices....

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.

Josh Powell has been waived so the clips are clearing space for someone

Josh Powell was great last year. I know he lacks in size but he showed real production.

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.

Sicky. I am happy with that, he fits our needs perfectly. Big body, knows his role, can defend and give up some fouls. And he has a funny beard.

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.
