Just like redshocker said, this is bad news for Paul Davis and Brian Skinner. But between Randolph, Kaman, and Camby, if we have two of them playing at all times, that's a good thing

Sigh- it sucks to see Cat go. He's been a really a good team guy and one of the leaders of the team. I wish that it were Ricky Davis and others instead. It's interesting to see Cat mention "the owner" when he should know it was Dunleavy behind this. Hopefully coach/GM will make this an amicable parting- I would love to see Cat come back in two years.

fact is guys, we were 2-9, second worst team in the league, we needed change. As a long-time clippers fan, I'm tired of waiting. Forget the future, let's try to do something special now.

Well everybody on this site has been complaining about TT's play so far this season. And for starting SG's, Cat is rated in the bottom 3rd of all SG's, and he is old and past his prime. So we get a legit 20 and 12 guy who is younger. Cat and TT were never going to be signed again after their contracts expired anyway. This does mess up our cap space plan for 1210.

You're not the only one. I welcome this trade. We just became a better team in multiple ways:

  • we have a low post threat now

  • we got younger

  • we got rid of a 31 chucker who can't hit a 3 to save his life and a 33 year old sg who, although he can still play, is breaking down and is inconsistent

  • more importantly we free up mins for Gordon. That's like getting an extra player in the trade

Yes there are risks but at this point it's a risk worth taking

We just got really weak in SG depth if Gordon doesn't burst out the gate. What will we do once EG hits the rookie wall and if Ricky is still struggling?

Are we just going to waive Collins?

Gordon is gonna make us forgot about Cat. Pick him up in your fantasy league NOW.

I'd like to see what Collins can do before we waive him.

Does this mean Camby may be gone?? That would be my guess....

i couldnt be happoer about this trade! ill miss cuttino, but now we will have one of the strongest second units in the league, whether its kaman, camby, or randolph comin off the bench. also, tim should also be kinda happy about this since he did great under dantoni in the 06 season. overall, playoffs, HERE WE COME

I feel bad for Mobley.

He said, "I'm a little upset, it was a surprise. I mean, I liked our team. I didn't give up on our team. I don't know what the owner was thinking, and don't know what anyone was thinking."

as much as i like marcus camby, out of kaman and camby I would trade camby obviously cause he is way older. think about it guys, he might retire in 2 to 3 years.

I am not happy to see Cat go but we are losing and changes were obviously going to happen. TT was horrible on defense and rebounding, not sorry to see him go. It was mistake to sign TT in the first place for that amount of money. I really hope Zbo doesn't do anything stupid while he is here. I hope MDsr. keeps him in check. Will have to wait and see. Hope Cat finishes his career well.

Maybe CAT can finish his career in LA once his contract is up? I wouldn't mind that, depending on the contract of course

ok Dunleavy needs to fall in a hole and never attempt to climb out... at least we have a post that can catch a ball now... we paid a price by letting a fine soldier go. i dont like where this franchise is headed... now we are as light and shady as brand and thats messed up.
