yeah i just read this as well...sounds like he is considering a few offers and one of them is the clippers....i dont think he would be a terrible pick up- he definitley brings experience condisering he has been with detroit all of these years they have made the playoffs.

Clips workout Lindsey Hunter

So just how serious were the Clippers' contingency plans if the diagnosis on Baron Davis' sprained left ring finger came back negatively? Apparently, serious enough to have free agent guard Lindsey Hunter in for a workout this week.

We worked him out and he looked great,'' Clippers coach and general manager Mike Dunleavy said.He's in great shape, and a good veteran guy.''

Now that the Clippers have official word that Davis should only be out another week and doesn't need surgery, it's unlikely they'd sign Hunter, who won NBA championships with the Lakers in 2001-02 and Detroit in 2003-04.

For his career, Hunter has averaged 8.8 points, 2.7 assists and 1.2 steals. He's been a key reserve for Detroit since 2003.

In case Baron + either Hart or Taylor go down, I guess having Lindsey Hunter around doesn't hurt. Like when Cassell (starter) and Livingston (backup) both went down, they were forced to use Will Conroy as part of the rotation. Earlier, I posted that they should fill up all 15 spots with contingencies instead of scrambling for one later into the season. I was arguing in favor of McCoy, but if Dunleavy and his staff feel the PG needs to be filled with plans B (Hart) plan C (Taylor) plan D (Hunter) and plan E (Gordon), then they're probably right. Again, these are just absolute emergency cases. We need to keep a positive mindset and hope that Hunter's leadership presence is all the will be required of him (if they sign him). One more mentor for Taylor and Gordon sounds good.
