Hey all, Here’s my latest: Predicting 2011 Free Agency http://www.hoopsworld.com/Story.asp?story_id=20359 I have David West to Pacers " for Lakers, Jeff Foster and Willie Green " for Clippers Shane Battier. I take my best crack at an impossible task - but I'm curious to see how close I come once the lockout is done! Thanks Eric ....

I wouldn't mind Battier as a one year rental. Fits our needs.

Wouldn't mind Grant Hill. HE is a young 38.

I'm afraid that these veteran SF's are going opt to play for a deep playoff team contender...JMHO.

I'd rather have Grant Hill on a one year rental than Battier, but both guys are true professionals.

Anybody who's an upgrade over Ryan Gomes and his psycho wife.

I'll call Grant, I'll get backs sometime in 2014 after the lock out and tell how it went.

Gerald Green plays in Europe. I'm sure he'll be seeing some familiar faces soon enough.

I would love Battier. He is one of those players that teams need to win. Unselfish, dependable, always in position, has the three point threat and can guard whoever you want him to. Extremely efficient. Veteran presence. All class. We could do a lot worse. On another note. NBATV is filling the summer league void with varied programming, including showings of previous Draft Days. Lousy video but interesting. Of special note, during....

The experts can say whatever they want about any particular draft. Those Clipper rooks are 2nd Rounders. They both fit into what the Clips are doing. There's pre-existing players on the current roster that both guys can step in for right away. They aren't high risk players according to their draft position. They won't cost an arm and a leg, so they won't be overspent on.......which will free up some cash elsewhere if both players....

Ya, this team's pretty young. I'm kinda worried about that as well. The vets like Battier, Hill, and Prince probably can't identify with the young Clipper players.......even if Blake Griffin and his work ethic becomes the most recognizable aspect of this team's new age Clipper culture. ....

How would Battier not identify with a young Clippers team? Gasol, Conley, Mayo, Allen, Gay, Haddadi etc etc on that team are all young players. Even Sam Young, Grevious etc are young players. We've got as much veterans on our team as the Grizzlies do and as much young talent as they do. Battier and a lot of these veterans are nice options, it all depends on what we decide to do. Grant Hill can easily say he wants to play....

Griffin is like Tim Duncan, Kobe, Lebron, Jordan etc, he's a franchise changer and he can take a crappy team and make it awesome just by his efforts alone. Once in a lifetime players like that don't come around too often and have always made their mark in history for their respective teams. It'd be dumb for people not to consider our team with Griffin here, and he seems happy to be on our team as well. And if we....

Blake added a 3pt game and a passing game that nobody knew he had. 4 assists a game at the PF position? Seriously for a rookie? Our team only winning 3 more games is due to multiple factors, remember Kaman, Gordon and Baron Davis all missed time last year, some more significant than others. Rhino, Foye and Cook also missed time. Which in turn, depletes our bench. Sure they aren't high quality bench players but it factors in. Blake's on his....
