A league source said Wednesday that the Clippers have asked about Philadelphia forward Andre Iguodala, though there was no indication that Los Angeles has made or will make an offer for Iguodala. NBA

Interesting. I'd take Iggy @ the 3. Problem is, how are we going to stay under the cap if we make a trade for him? obvious signs point to Kaman or Baron being shipped outta dodge to match salaries as we cannot trade our rookies and newly signed free agents right now.

Sick! I have a feeling the FO is looking at boards like this and getting anybody that we want, so they can sell season tickets. If we end up getting him while keeping ej, eb, bg, dj, and minny 2012 pick, it would be amazing.

We really don't have the pieces and the cap space to get this done anymore.

Would it be worth downgrading our PG a little to upgrade or SF spot a lot?

We could move Baron to Toronto for Calderon. Calderon is a weak defender, but is a much better shooter than Baron and I think he'd be better for the development of our young players.

I think this would give us enough cap space to take on the Iguodala contract. We could throw in DeAndre and a pick if need be to get this done. Iguodala's play making would help offset the loss of Baron I think.

It wouldn't have to be under the cap, just under the luxury tax right?

I think our best option is to just try to work out a trade for someone like Ariza.

The Rockets are supposedly looking to move him and I think he'd fit nicely with us. His contract really isn't bad and we don't need him to be a scorer for us. He would just need to come in and play hard, defend the wing, and keep defenders honest. I'm convinced that he can do all if those things while doing things the right way.

I think that "2 cushion" shot might work...but your going to most probably have to put Kaman in the deal instead of DJ. Now you've downgraded 2 positions. You want to add to, not subtract from IMHO.

I'm down with this idea over gutting our roster just to add Iggy.

Under the cap ( 58 million). The luxury tax ( 70 million). Luxury tax is only for teams that need the extra money to re-sign their own players. Going over the cap is for teams signing their own players. We really didn't do that. We renounce the rights or players decided to leave thus leaving us under the cap. If you went under the cap and went out and got new players to fill the roster, you don't pass go, you don't get to go over the cap, and you don't get the MLE.

By the way, nice ink! Very Happy

Going over the cap is not a luxury we have. CBA does not allow teams to go over the cap for teams under the cap looking to get new players.

Kaman+ $3mil (maybe a pick too, but that might be too much though) should suffice. I wouldn't do more than that. We would have to sign a cheap center, maybe Shaq? You can't throw in Dj cause then we have no center.

If we trade Kaman for Iggy, we will still have a bulk of our capspace left.

I like iggy a lot, I think he's under rated and stuck on a bad team. If we can pull this trade off without giving up too much, he fits what we need perfectly at the sf position

Imagine a 3-4 team trade that would land us cp3 and iggy Surprised

They traded away 4 players and 2 first round picks that amounted to Gasol's salary.

" In exchange Memphis will receive forward Kwame Brown, guard Javaris Crittenton, guard Aaron McKie (who the Lakers signed earlier today), the draft rights to Marc Gasol and first round picks in 2008 and 2010."

To get Iggy I think it's all about Kaman. They don't have a center and I'm sure Brand would love to get him over there. It would be an investment in the center position and also the PF position as they would be thinking bringing Kaman over would maybe breath some life into Brand and get him earning his money finally.

If we offer Kaman, I think that's equal value already. No need for picks to be added.

Either that or DJ+picks. Might be too big of a difference in salaries though. I think we're 8mil under the cap so we can take on that much difference.

im down for that calderon idea it would balance out the roster well. we'd have blake and kaman inside with kaman for the occasional jumper, ej draining threes, calderon facilitating and shooting threes, and iggy to create, drive in and pull up if needed. i think its the perfect balace of outside-inside-penetrating for the starting lineup.

trade baron for calderon and trade for iggy!

Teams can stay over the cap and even make their cap sitation worse of the value of the players they recieved is within 125% of what they sent away. So if a team is at $60 million ($2 million over the cap), and they trade away $20 million in salaries, they can take back up to $25 million salaries, which would then raise them from $2 to $7 million over the cap, but still this would be an allowed trade.

If I'm even going to consider trading my top 5,young Allstar center then it's going to be for a top 5 SF @ least. At this point I would only take Granger for Kaman, nothing less.

I'm not against trading Kaman but if they do trade him, who will play Center? DJ is not ready to play big minutes. If we do get Iggy to go along with the rest of the team, we won't need an offensive minded center. Just someone who can rebound and block shots would be a good fit for the team.

I highly doubt ANY front office is looking at ANY "boards" and making decisions based upon them. To think that is a bit ludacris, not to mention naive, I must say..

I dont think its worth picking up Iggy to leave a gaping hole at C.

They might be interested in a deal of Aminu and DJ and Foye or Gomes (to make salaries match)

Some people don't realize that we can't trade players we just signed until after the season already started. I keep seeing people mentioning Foye and Gomes as part of trades but we just signed those guys so we won't be able to trade them for a few months.

chant: "IGGY! IGGY! IGGY!". even though i like kaman, ill give him the boot with minny's 1st rounder + our 1st rounder + cash. no youngsters. they stay with us including gordon. they want a center. they need a starting center. they don't want extra contracts in return.76ers are being cheap right now. they really want to give elton brand the boot but nobody wants him. Smile. just 1 contract like kaman, but that's it!

I think is actualy 90- 120 days of waiting. So you could agree in principle and wait for the period to be over.

I don't think we have what it takes to go out and get a guy like Iguodala. Our best hope is waiting until a team is desperate to unload players in order to get under the cap and then swoop in and give them cap relief in exchange for said (valuable) player. I'm sure Philadelphia wants to see how Turner and Iguodala player together before considering moving Iggy. We'll likely have to wait until the trade deadline to have a shot at him.

^^ Philly already has Thad Young who is also up and coming. I think they would be down to trade one of them, and my guess is they would keep the younger of the two

Thaddeus Young is no Iguodala.. Plus they see Young as more of an undersized, but quick PF off the bench for their running system. Which also makes you wonder why they signed Brand err F-Elton..

The rumour is apparently false... Lisa Dillman is reporting that the Clippers are not interested in Igoudala at all. I can't post the link because of my post count, but the tweet reads

I haven't seen him play a lot though, but isn't he more of a 2 than a 3?

We missed out on this guy last year or the yr b4 when he was a RFA. Since then he has carried himself well but not well enough to trade Kamen for him. We r so lucky to have a top5 center that does more than dunk. Trading Kamen for potential is ridiculous. Kamen is an all-star, is Iggy?

I'm with you devastator and even if we could get him without giving up Kaman I don't know if he's a good fit. He only shoots 32% from 3 and that doesn't help us spread the floor. I'd like to see a guy whose shooting 36% or better from 3 @ our SF position.

Tense2 I looked at Gomes stats a few weeks back and was pleasantly surprised with his shooting. Yet I don't know if he adds a lot or even all we need as a starter. I believe we need someone who will get attention from the defense,drive the ball when necessary, and is a good passer especially off the dribble. I think we have a better shot with getting that from T-Mac.

Don't know about all the passing off the dibble or driving the ball stuff....I was just commenting on your "spread the floor guy who's shooting % for the 3 was @ 36% or better".........that's Gomes.

Repped High Quality Post

Fun name to toss around, but Iggy isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Maybe by mid season.

I think Philly is in the same boat we are. They ,like us, need to see how there/our young core( including new coaching staff) will develop right up to the trading deadline. In fact we'd be smart to save our extra cap space money to make an trade offer for any number of players we've seen toss around later in the season. The last thing we need to do is blow all our cash and be stuck with a cinder block. A little patience might be exactly what we need.

Gomes, as a 36% three point shooter, is a marginal threat. About where Butler was last year... We need to get guys in the 40s% to make much on an impact and really spread the defense... We just don't have a guy like that, so once again defenses will crowd the key and make things difficult for us in the paint... It will be harder for Griffin, harder for Kaman and harder for Baron to penetrate...

Iggy is very underrated IMO, i think a lot of people think he is a good player, i think he is ridiculously good and would trade Kaman and a 2nd round pick in a heart beat if possible...
