Trade Livingston for cash? That's kind of degrading- plus I don't think you're allowed to trade a player for $ in the NBA. As for Maggette it'd better be a big time player if we do trade him because he brings a ton of scoring and energy for the Clippers. Bibby sounds interesting but he is making too much money.

I know you can't trade a player for cash. However, during the Draft there is a lot of trading that includes trading players for "cash considerations." What does that mean? Shedding money to fit under the cap?

I don't WANT to trade Cat. He's a guy with a good attitude, streaky yes but he's had offense when we needed it. While not a huge + he's never been a - . Having said that my dream is to trade and two of these Thomas, Kayman, Mobley, Maggette in that order for let's say a Bibby, or maybe one of the above and Singleton if the other team is not too bright. #50 could do SG and Q at SF and play Singleton. Sam could give limited PS, SG minutes as well. If CK were to go, how much is Jamaal Magloire? But then again I dream of Salma Hayek.

I wouldnt get Magliore because he's a bit older now and the Bucks just had him after injury. They traded him very quickly which makes me think they didnt like his production or the fact that he was coming off injury. Sucks becuz he was just coming off being an all-star and finally playing at a high level, gets injured and is not quite where he used to be. I'd still take Kaman over him. I'd give Kaman a few months to see how he does before thinking about trading him.

Trade Mobley and Thomas for Shawn Marion

Get Vince Carter

Sign smush Parker

and bam...

PG. S.Parker

SG. V. Carter

SF. Shawn Marion

PF. Elton Brand

C. C. Kaman That would be a contender

First of all welcome EB! Your first name doesn't happen to be Elton, eh? Wink

I'd love that trade of Mobley + Thomas for Marion, but I doubt Phoenix would go for that. Vince Carter is too expensive (we would go waaaay over the salary cap). Smush Parker- well- we could give him a chance but I seriously doubt he'd be the ideal starting PG for the Clippers....

I'd like the Marion for Mobley and Thomas deal, but it would probably only work with Maggette and not Mobley. Marion has very good defense. Does he still have enough offense??

first of all, theres no way we should trade livingston. his stock has gone so low that it would be better to keep him and hope for a surprise recovery rather than trade him now for close to nothing. second, we really need to give maggette an extension this summer, even if he doesnt end up staying with us, hes a valuable asset that if we dont do anything soon, we might lose him for nothing. third, im ready to see mobley and thomas out of here. not so much thomas as much as mobley cuz thomas isnt making as much and is a lot more versatile. dont get me wrong, i love mobley, but hes getting old and its better we trade him now than later when he loses value. i honestly dont think hes that big of a key to our success because of his inconsistency. as far as kaman goes, we need to give him more time before i can really say anything. i was expecting so much from his this season, but i still have hope for his future. last, does anyone know much about javaris, it seems like he'll be the best pg avail and i havent watched much of him. i was phyched on getting acie law, cuz im a big fan and followed him for a while, but i dont think hes goin to be avail anymore. last, can we please sign kapono this offseason, we really need that shooter.

I would get rid of any two players for Billups except EB and Kayman (??). Not that I believe in CK but we need someone to clog the middle. Imagine Billups, Hart and Sammie (limited minutes) or Cat, SF Corey or Q and Singleton in the mix. Why wouldn't Billups rather play for us than some East disaster? It would be Monster Time! Also since #8 is acting infantile, we would RULE LA. But there's an old R&B song, First I Look at the Purse.

Phoenix would have to have sunstroke (ouch) to trade any Clip for Marion. Corey would come off the bench and you know that wouldn't fly. Where would they even put EB? Marion could be a great SF with Q or Jumpin' James bench but we'd still have guard problems. I think we will be blessed or cursed with #50 next yr.
