Do we make a strong move for paul?

if so do you include ej or minny pick?

do you match DJ's contract?

Do you trade Kaman?

Do you amnesty Gomes?

Man, Neil Olshey has some big decisions this week!

My honest opinion is that the best move is not making one, think about it. Do we really need to trade the whole team for Mr.Paul?

NEIL Olshey, band wagon fans for the win. I say everything but Gordon for Paul and if they say no move along. Match DJ, trade Kaman for god knows what, just get something for him, draft picks, young talent, a back up center. Just keep Gomes for now, if we need space or cap room we can always amnesty him later...never know if the injury bug might bite.

I don't think we need to trade for CP3.........well, I take that back........in an alternate universe, where the Clippers could get out from under a couple of those crappy contracts by dealing a future draft pick, Kaman, Foye, Mo, and the newly acquired Caron Butler for CP3, Trevor Ariza, Jarrett Jack, and Brian Butch........then turn around and deal Jack and Butch for Birdman, then.....YES!! But in reality? No...

What crappy contracts do we have? I know Mo is a little overpaid, and I am not a huge fan of the Butler signing but I wouldn't say we are really dying with bad contracts at this point in fact I think we are in a far better position than most franchises...

"The Clippers would send center Chris Kaman, guard Eric Bledsoe, forward Al-Farouq Aminu and the No. 1 draft pick to get the All-Star point guard, in deal said to be in the closing stages of talks."

If the LA Times article is true, and the deal does in fact get done, then this is for sure one of the best moves in Clipper franchise history.

we are definately giving up more than what the flakers wanted to give up. i hope we sign pachulia to backup DJ. landry wouldnt hurt either. i hope we go all out to extend paul asap.

still has to pass thru the league for approval if true, but I don't think Stern and the boys would turn this trade down again....to many ramifications. They'll want to move on, IMO.

if the trade does happen, then we need to add bench depth fast. i mean this trade helps us in the sense that we can get quality bench help for cheap since now we will emerge as a contender to the title. Cp3, EJ, butler, BG and DJ. thats one hell of a starting five.

The article never mentioned that it needs Dan Gilbert's signature too. Let's hope Donald Sterling doesn't nix this one though.

We'll have to pay an extra 15% (if traded) to CP3 this year due to a clause in his contract. Same with NO for Kaman.

i guess but not really lol. with this trade, we will have to fill the bench with fillers. ill be happy if we get a solid backup center. dont get me wrong, im excited for cp3 being here. as a lifelong clips fan who has seen more downs than ups and had to deal with flaker fans **** for more than 20 years im happy. extremely happy.

very true but hard to see this trade being vetoed as we are giving them a potential top 5 pick, an expiring contract, and a 21 yr old and a 22 yr old with tons of potential. great rebuilding package all around. stern would have no choice because no other team can offer this type of rebuild package.

I agree 100%. Other hiccups might happen though - I'm a pessimist! Smile

They'll spend 80% of the time talking about Kobe being upset, 10% of the time talking about Odom and the other 10% talking about how CP3 has dodgy knees.

LMAO. We will go from 30 posters online at a time to like 200+. I hope David's servers can handle it. My attitude is.... I'll welcome new fans who are new NBA fans in general. If they are just bandwagoners who just want to jump to a ship on the rise they can kiss my as* quite frankly.

Does Mo mind the bench? I would think so cuz the minutes behind eric and paul (without injury) would be slim
