We don't really know what's gonna happen with the CP3 situation but if we stick with this roster (Billups included) what do you guys think will be the next move ?

Do we keep our 3 PG ? Billups - Mo - Bledsoe ? with EB unavailable until late January.

Do we trade Kaman for a new back-up center ?

nope, sounds like Trey Thompkins will be our back up for, i hear everyone very impressed with his play in training camp so far

I know it's not really "basketball reasons," but considering that Mo helped the team get Butler, I'd like to still see him on the team.

Simple - move on with our current roster into training camp, convince Billups he belongs here, send Willie Warren to D-League and find a cheap big man, and let the NBA sweat out the CP3 situation.

I agree. We're just 1 million below the cap.

PG- Billups, Williams

SG- Gordon, Foye

Bledsoe when he gets healthy would be in there.

SF- Butler, Aminu, Gomes

PF Blake, Thompkins

C- Jordan, Kaman

Although I think Kaman is better than Jordan, I think he needs to accept being the scorer off the bench. Plenty of scoring with the starters. I also expect to see Kaman, Jordan and Blake sometimes together...taking advantage of our size.

So long story short...let's play some hoop. Should be a good season!

Olshey just said at media day that they met with all the players on the team and are moving forward and not making any more trades

It's cool to see 6 or 7 all star players on the Clipper roster. Have not been able to say that since I have been a Clippers fan.

I think we're fine unless there's some great amnesty deal out there like billups that they can't pass up on. Next move may be just getting a player in the draft, maybe even trade with the raptors to get another probably top 10 pick.

I haven't heard much about Leslie. Warren is expendable. In the event of no trade I don't know what else would happen. I mean in the event of the NBA getting desperate to trade Paul/fill their roster spots maybe we do trade some of them like Aminu, Kaman and maybe a Mo/Bledsoe.

HAHAHA Laker fan just called Max and Marcelus and said to trade a first round draft pick to Minnesota for Kevin Love and Max told him and lakers fans to think before they cal because they are reddic. and said lakers fans don't understand the word salary cap.

At salary cap now.....amnesty bids can only be taken by teams under the salary cap which is why the only other teams against us was charlotte to get billups.

To me we need a back up bigs. After Kaman for our big man, who else we turn to. Unless Blake Griffin play for 48 minutes or very small.

Repped High Quality Post

I say our next "move" shouldn't be a roster change. Our next move should be to resign ej, NOW. I'm getting a little frustrated that we haven't heard anything about EJ's contract extension yet. we've said that we want to give him an extension, and EJ said he wants to stay here. One thing leads to another... get 'er done, olshey

Beasley would be a curse for this team. A player who only cares about himself and weed.

We must move Kaman he will become a distraction coming off the bench and we just paid Jordan started money. There is however one move that could keep Kaman here, I heard in the new CBA a player can take less money to extend his contract over a longer period of time. Even then I doubt Kaman takes a paycheck cut for us and a backup role there is a option.

Denver just got Corey Brewer and Rudy Fernandez for free ( a second rounder). Those are the exact types of players we needed. Brewer is a shut down defender who can hit the three and Rudy is a knock down shooter. Much rather have gotten these guys and not all that money we spent on injury prone Caron. Great move by Denver.

What 15 do we currently have?

Griffin, Gordon, Mo, Kaman, DJ, Chauncey, Butler, Gomes, Foye, Aminu, Bledsoe... I count 11. Is Rhino under contract? The 2 rookies make the team? Warren still playing in the NBA? Brian Cook on the squad? Ike Diogu? Jamario Moon? POOH RICHARDSON?
