Trade proposal:

LAC sends Kamen & Maggette to Indiana

IND sends J. O'Neal to New Orleans & Granger to LAC

NO sends T. Chandler to LAC

Resulting starting rosters & motives:

LAC

Chandler

Brand

Granger / Thorton

Mobley / Q. Ross

Cassell

LAC needs a quicker / better defensive center. Too many players at 3 position. Maggette is highly sought.

IND

Kamen / Foster

T. Murphy

Maggette

Dunleavy

J. Tinsley

IND loves Maggette and needs to dump O'Neal's salary to improve. Kamen is a very good replacement for O'Neal - younger and good numbers.

NO

O'Neal

D. West

D. Mason

Stojakovic

C. Paul

NO needs a star to go along with C. Paul. This is a nucleus they could build a team around. If Stojakovic is healthy, they will compete.

I like the idea of getting Granger, and Kaman went downhill last year, so.......it is a semi equal trade off at center, but are we going down hill at SF? Oh I forgot Maggette can opt out next year, so OK, lets do it.

Better yet ...

LAC sends Kamen & Maggette to Indiana

IND sends J. O'Neal & Granger to New Orleans

NO sends T. Chandler & 2008 1st round pick to LAC

Resulting rosters & motives:

LAC

Chandler / P. Davis

Brand / Thomas

Thorton / Q. Ross

Mobley / Diaz

Cassell / Francis? / Jordan

LAC needs a quicker / better defensive center. Too many players at 2 & 3 position - try to figure playing time. Maggette is highly sought. Leaves salary space to sign PG or good backup center. Take a look at PG's in the 2008 draft!

IND

Kamen / Foster

T. Murphy

Maggette

Dunleavy

J. Tinsley

IND loves Maggette and needs to dump O'Neal's salary to improve. Kamen is a very good replacement for O'Neal - younger and good numbers.

NO

O'Neal

D. West

Granger / D. Mason

Stojakovic

C. Paul

NO needs a star to go along with C. Paul. Also, Mason & Peja were injured. They need a healthy 2/3. This is a nucleus they could build a team around. If Stojakovic is healthy, they will compete.

i dont like loosing maggette. we havent even seen thorton play.... Qross cannot start and have the Clippers make playoffs. Our offense relies heavily on maggette, apparently people forget that. The Clippers have always been a run and gun team... ALWAYS. DUMLEAVY came and centered evrything on a halfcourt game paralyzed players like maggette and kaman, maybe even livingston (he can play better on the run, at a quick pace). and settled for a slow down Kaman and Brand offense - with not so great shooters. We made playoffs becasue Brand was normal and Sammy was knocking down shots. One season samy is not at 100% health and Brand is not at 100% game we have an agony of a season. Let em run, let em play thier kind of basketball. Let your players play in an environment/style where they perfrom thier best, better perfromance = win = playoofs = good.
