Finally we can talk bball and not who deserves more $$ between millionaires and billionaires.

Who should we go for?

My pick in this particular order

Shane Battier- Mr. Reliable.. can hit a 3 on clutch

Caron Butler- gamble well worth it since we probably wont use him for his athletism.

JR Smith- every team needs a crazy

Michael Redd- shooter that is all

Anbdre Kirelenko- reliable veteran who can defend. imagine our length with bg dj, and ak scary

I agree - Battier is the best fit out of these choices. The scoring is going through Blake and EJ - We all know that- Mo is capable of putting up 20 on any night which makes him a perfect third scoring option. I'm sold on having Mo as our PG if we can get a facilitating 3 i.e. Iggy. However, if that type of three is unavailable, then a defensive player that can hit a 3 is what we need.

Or Send Kaman Aminu Bledsoe and the pick away . . . You think Mo would come off the bench??

I'd love to have Battier. Kirilenko is probably gonna be too overpaid at this point. What's going on with Tayshaun Prince? Did we all pretty much give up on that idea?

Iggy is still the best fit, but we shouldn't give up too much to get him. KEEP THE PICK, NEIL!

JR Smith injured his knee in China, plus he is signed for a full season over there. I don't think he is an option right now.

AK47 would be perfect for us. Prince, Battier, T-Mac, Grant Hill. All these guys would be an upgrade over Gomes.

if we need a "crazy," we should go for Beasley. I like Iggy, but he was never known as a shooter. I strongly believe that the clippers need a good shooter at the 3. Minnesota will be looking to move him too.

like every year...we need a SF

I think Jason Richardson and Shane Battier are the guys we should go after

Sorry guys But at this point the only player I would trade is Kaman and Aminu. And no for who ever suggested on trading Bledsoe. Theres no way in hell id let Bledsoe go. Also Like someone else said, Id prefer on DJ which atleast has shown to be able to play the whole year, over Kaman who has been more than half of the time on the bench. Im sorry, but being on the bench aint helping my Clippers. Thats the bottom line... I love my CLIPS! GO CLIPPERS!

IMO, we either need to sign prince, or go after Iggy again. re-sign DJ. then, give offers to reggie williams, jason kapono, michael redd, marco belineli, j rich, steve novak, AK47. Get at least 2 of these guys to sign, and we have 3 point threats coming off of the bench. we really need some 3 point threats.

On what grounds should we allow him? His poor attitude? His out of shape body which resulted in a cyst behind his knee? His horrendous 3 point shooting? Sub par at best defense?

His bad outweighs his good.

Eric Gordon pretty much let it be known he would not resign if Baron was still on the team.

that's how bad we wanted him out.

Unless AK is dirt cheap he'$ not worth it. None of the other guys turn my crank either. The only guy who fits is Grant Hill who's a young old guy who's a leader. Otherwise a gamble on Gomer may be warranted. Remember he had his worst year ever (Clipper Luck) This is sacrilege (sp) and I'm going to have one foot in my arse and one down my throat BUTT DJ and a pick for Pierce. he's 31. His scoring was down but he's been playing with two strong players. He has three yrs left and he'll be 34 when he's done....

I think everyone on the team liked Baron except of EJ. I think the problem between them was who would have the ball in clutch situations, and last season, Baron started to give it up. But none of that matters anymore, looks like Baron is going to be a Laker.

I really don't think the Cavs use the amnesty on Baron. They still have to pay the guy and there's no need to use it on him this year. I think they let Irving get a year of experience under his belt and then use the amnesty on Baron before the 2012 season. I also don't think there's any way Gilbert takes the chance of Baron going to Miami.

we were playing our best basketball of the season before baron got traded. and if we were to bring him back for MLE, then that's a steal. Use amnesty clause on Mo and get his ass out of here. Mo's D is worse than baron's ( at least baron was able to guard, and even push around every PG in the league), I also do NOT trust the ball in Mo's hands, it feels like he's gonna lose the ball most of the time. he ain't a real PG.

hahaha, "outweighs." i get it. 'cause he's fat.

seriously though, speaking of baron and his weight and attitude and whatnot...the lockout is the absolute perfect way to test these exact things. if he actually managed to stay in shape during the lockout, then i would consider giving him a second chance. if he could stay motivated and in shape during the lockout, and considering that he was actually motivated playing with blake, AND considering that there won't be the pressure on davis OR on the team with his huge contract, i think he's definitely worth another look.

Why not go after Gay in Memphis? Seems like Memphis is doing whatever it can to keep ZBo and Gasol. Pretty soon they will want to raise the $$$ for Mayo as long as he stays out of trouble. If Gay costs too much, how about going after Tony Allen? Tough SF who doesn't need the rock and go after a guy like Barnes in next year's dradt

Yup, I read that a few weeks back. Gilbert basically said he isn't committed to anything. Gilbert wanted Baron as a ploy to keep LBJ. I am positive Gilbert won't let that happen.

If he can work on his shot selection then he has the potential to be, yes.

Or I suppose as a PG he could just cut down on his bad shots.

We will have to wait until the season ends, so Mo can have a full season with the Clippers.

Pretty bold considering he only played a handful of games. I think he's a pretty good shooting guard but I wouldn't go as far as calling him a PG.

I dont really think its that bold since we havent had any solid consistent PG presence since Cassell

And Mo was consistent in his 20-something games in a clips uni? I think we just differ in the definition of "Bold". No problem...

AK47 would be the best fit IMO followed by Prince. I saw a bit of AK47 overseas last week and the dude was a flat out monster. Stroking the 3 like crazy, dunking on people and playing the elite defense he's always played. If we land AK47 or Prince I don't think people realize how good we will be. Gomes is working out hard to have a better year but I think we have forgotten what a good SF plays like. I'd take Prince/AK47 over Maggette when we had him putting up 20+ ppg.

Besides AK47 wants to be a Clipper! Check this out.

"As per sources close to situation, Andrei Kirilenko will leave CSKA Moscow and try to sign a multi-year deal with Nets, Jazz or Los Angeles"

"Andrei Kirilenko will play with CSKA until he signs a contract in NBA. His dream is to live in LA and would play for Lakers and Clippers"

This makes perfect sense. His supermodel wife wants to be In LA I'm sure, and doesn't he get a pass from his wife for certain "adventures" ? L.A. has got a lot of beautiful ladies for him to choose from.

AK-47 would make for an intimidating front court. Monstrous. And if he wants to be here then extra bonus.

I'm convinced, since if we realistically look at what we got going - Playoffs this year and if Olshey plays his cards right - Contenders after that. Real Contenders.

Lakers can't afford, Jazz want to go in new direction. Only competition really is Nets and some Jazz fans have said that AK47 and Deron DO NOT get along.

Remember since Lakers are well into luxury tax and over cap... they only can offer a 3 mill a year MLE, not the normal 5.5 mill or w/e. No way Andrei signs for 3 mill a year when he just turned 30 and still has a few good years left in him. He did win Euroleague MVP a couple weeks ago and put up the highest stat value in Euroleague history. Dude had a 17 point, 9 rebound, 6 steal, 3 block and 5 assist game or something absurd like that.

Mo's game is actually very similar to Cassell's game. Neither are really true PG's, both rely heavily on mid-range jump shots, both are below average defenders, but both have a swagger about them that makes them good floor generals.

I look at the makeup of this team, I don't think we need a true PG. Not with Gordon emerging as a better playmaker.

Like both, but would personally prefer Prince. Kirilenko plays the defense + assist rates are good, but outside shooting isn't his strongest suit; LT3PT.312% , last 5 yrs from 10-15 ft 29%, from 16-23ft 37% and has been injury prone, averaging 19 games missed the last 3 yrs. He will turn 31 on 2/18/12

Prince plays defense + assist rates are good and his outside shooting is better; LT3PT .368%, last 5 yrs from 10-15 ft 35%, from 16-23ft 41% and has not been bitten by the injury bug except for '09-10. He will turn 32 on 2/28/12.

How many years and how much $ would you pay for either one IF they would want to play for us?

Personally I think I'd offer... 5-7 mill a year over 3-4 years for either player. Somewhere around there.

One of the things that will be interesting is not necessarily who gets signed around the league... They all will, it's just a matter of where... The real question is for how much.

It has been suggested that DJ could command 10-million... I think given the severity of the luxury taxes, it would be ridiculous to throw that much money at him. Imagine, DJ at 10... That would mean Blake and Gordon would be maximum contract players. That would be 40 for three players and 18 million for the rest of the team? Bledsoe is going to need to get paid assuming he's our starting PG by then. It still doesn't include a starting SF or any bench players...

I think you're going to see teams holding back and not spending in free agency until the new economy clicks in with new (lower) values for players... There will be one or two-year deals because teams will not want to get into trouble with the cap...

It will be interesting...

We can't afford Deron under new CBA. Not if we want to keep DJ+Gordon+fill in with a decent SF like AK47 or Prince. I don't want us to have a "big 3" anyways at the sacrifice of depth and versatility.
