So, let's break into a few categories. First up, let's start with the stars whose contracts expire following the 2009-2010 season and will then become honest-to-goodness free agents: Joe Johnson Ray Allen Manu Ginobili Marcus Camby Tracey McGrady Shaquille O'Neal Brad Miller Stephen Jackson Jermaine O'Neal Mike Miller Rip Hamilton The next grouping is those players that are signed thru 2011, but can opt out in 2010 if they so choose: Yao Ming (owed 17.7 million in 10/11) Amare Stoudamire (owed 17.7 million in 10/11) LeBron James (owed 17.2 million in 10/11) Dwayne Wade (owed....

Welcome, by the way Very Happy. I think Joe Johnson would be the most realistic--not entirely impossible. Griffin will not be the next Odom *sigh* ....

Welcome, topbuzzclip. In answer to your post, if I may be so bold as to quote from Sly and the Family Stone: "Que sera, sera/ whatever will be, will be" And I agree that Joe Johnson would be a nice add on. But if someone like Childress can be added now, then go for it. Man it feels good to have cap flexibility again. Smile ....

After Ariza just signed with the Rockets - probably the most inexplicable move I've seen in 10 years - I wouldn't be surprised by anything at this point. Basketball players are fickle. ....

Wishfull thinking. Everybody knows we never land All Star caliber FA until the end of their career. Joe Johnson isn't even realistic he'd go to a contender before he ever thought of coming here. ....

Im going to have to disagree. I think for All Stars at the end of their career the clippers are the last team they want to go to. I think the All Stars under 30 are actually going to have to take a hard look....

Call me crazy, but if Im looking for a team to spend my prime NBA years with, and I see a team with some really solid guys (assuming Griffin, Gordon and guys like DeAndre continue to improve) who are pretty young and guys who act like professionals from day 1 in the league and want to win pretty bad
Maybe if it was three years from now, but those guys aren't ready to win just yet and LeBron will recognize that.....

b diddy u are blind to several clues on why lebron Could leave cleveland. first of all, they are temporarily atleast only built for this year as shack has a one year remaining on contract. also, when the cavs lose to the lakers this year in the finals, lebron will have had enough with danny pixie ferry and bolt cleveland. plus cleveland is just a boring/cold town ....

Even though we may not have a franchise with a lot of history, you still can't leave out the fact that we are in one of the biggest markets in the NBA. That alone, should at least put some thinking into Lebron, D-Wade, Bosh, Joe Johnson, Josh Howard, Dirk, Amare, etc. It's also important that we have a great year this year to at least convince them that we are capable of going to the next level. ....

lets go thru the list: lebron would never go to the clips and be in king kobes shadow. d-wade doesnt make sense if any of you are serious about eric gordon being legit. bosh is not much a franchise player, and the clips have tons of bigs anyway. joe johnson is gonna be the hedo of next year (well slightly better), yet will want too much money for his age. josh howard is nearing 30 as well and really isnt....

@seanb.. anytime you have an opportunity to get an all world player, not saying we do but if we did, such as d-wade, regardless of who we have you go for them. there are so few of those types of players you cant wait for promising young guys like eric gordon to develop into what you think could be d-wade. its like would you rather have a bird in hand or bird in the bush situation.. always bird in hand.....

Sterling is a different owner than he was ten years ago... It seems that as he's getting older, he doesn't want to leave the legacy of futility... If the owner is behind things, and I think Sterling finally is, anything is possible... ....

We only need a season to see what the Pups will do. EG and maybe BG have a good possibility of being first tier allstars. That's not a bird in the bush. We'll know how good they are by Feb or so. Then all will be revealed. The main thing we have to do to get a big name is to fire Whatshisname and probably dump Davis. No way he and LBJ or DWade would get along. ....

We do not have a strong tradition that attracts high profile free agents. We normally have to trade for our stars and get guys who are already on long term contracts. To be able to change all of that and attract a great player like DWade we need to win big this season and show the world that we are a franchise on the way up. If we do that, then the big stage that is LA....

Johnson Roy Rondo All 3 are coming here.
Johnson and roy have nearly identical games with Joe Johnson shooting more 3's. They play the same combo guard point game and i dont think would want to play for the same team... also if we still have B diddy and he is actually playing well, along with Gordon, then we need a SF not a PG/SG. I thought it was crazy before but the more i think about it and with us drafting Blake Griffin,....

if i was an nba player, i guess i would consider the history of a franchise, but at the end of the day, it'll come down to the money i could get, where i would have to live, and the supporting cast around me. in 2010 the clippers offer all three in a way that no other team can. i don't know who we're going to get, but there are only so many teams out there with cap space, we're gonna get....

Memphis is not going to let Rudy Gay get away from them. I feel they can actually be somewhat competitive in the future with their young squad. I would like RAjon Rondo but when Sessions gets here, theres no need for him. ....
