So listening to many commentaries, the last piece that the Clippers need is a wing defender who can shoot the 3. He would need to shut down the likes of kobe, manu, jason terry and james harden.

Personally, I think the most likely candidate is DeShawn Stevenson, who is making 2.5 million in the last year of his contract on the Nets, who are going nowhere this year. Maybe he can be had for a couple second rounders and we could use our TPE from the Paul trade. He helped Dallas win their championship.

The next candidate is Courtney Lee. A great defender who shoots better, but will be difficult to pry away from Houston, who is in the hunt and also will probably cost too much.

I wonder if James Posey is in shape to come back and defend. He was great for Boston's championship run.

What do you guys think?

Another possibility is Jared Dudley, but he is part of Phoenix's young core, is signed to multiple years and bagged on the Clips a couple years back. I highly doubt Olshey can get him for the resources that we have. But you never know, I guess.

If Utah falls, Raja Bell (gulp) is a possibility, also signed to mutiple years.

Gerald Henderson of the Bobcats. I'd trade Bledsoe for him.

Henderson is career 22% from 3. That's worse than bdizzle.

Mavs want expiring contracts and Cuban has been trying to hype up Marion so someone can take him. A combo of Foye and Cook could get us Marion but the problem with Marion off the books the Mavericks will have cap next season to sign Deron Williams and Dwight Howard two players who have shown interest in Dallas. Should we run the risk?

I wish there was a way to snag Tony Allen from the Griz

Mavs are still in the hunt, so they still need Marion. I'm ok with the trade, even though it shifts alot of talent to the west, as long as the fakers don't get dwill and d12. Nets prob won't do the trade though.

What about Francisco Garcia from the Kings? He can score, but I'm not too sure about his defense. courtney Lee still seems like the best option

If you want a wing defender, let's bring back Quinton Ross and put him in the starting line up Smile

It's going to be hard to get Bayless, and I'm not sure how good he is off the ball and on defense. Ruben Patterson ended his career with us and Q ross couldn't hit the ocean standing on the beach.

Francisco Garcia or John Salmons. Both should be easy to get

Cuban is lobbying to move him already sending tweets and messages how great a player Marion is and how he is all defensive team. Foye and Cook give them what they want. Surprised Marion hasn't taken it personal or commented guess he already has his ring and will get paid either way. If we could get Marion then find a way to flip Gomes and/or Bled for a big sized two guard slasher we are back in title hopes.

Paul/Williams/Bledsoe

?/Marion/Willams/Leslie

Butler/Marion/griffin

Griffin/Evans/Martin/Thompkins

Jordan/Martin/Evans

Dahntay Jones is a big solid defender. I know that he might not be the easiest guy to get but he would add some toughness to an already tough team with K-Mart and Reggie Evans.

Not sure if Francisco Garcia and Salmons are good defenders. Marion is interesting though. Would Cuban want to strengthen a team he might face in the playoffs?

^^^No way he'll trade Marion before the end of the season unless they get skill back. He'll move him in the summer I would guess.

Definitely wouldn't give him to us!

He would definitely prefer not to, but when it comes down to it, his priorities are about the possibility of getting Dwight and Deron.

That guy would be Terrence Williams, he's cheap and would be good coming

of the bench. (Plus he's a Point Forward).

I would love to have T-Will on the team and the Rockets wouldn't want much since he is just on the bench doing nothing. Think given the shot he would fit in as another explosive player for us.

Terrence Williams was a former first round pick, and would be a absolute steal if we got him.Imagine if he turned out to be our Jeremy Lin.

Also he averaged(14pts 7rebs 5.5ast) in the last 2 months of his rookie year. There are probably less then five players who could do that today in 1 month.

bayless is too small, i like the idea of the matrix but will be hard to get him, most likely be used as a trading piece for dwight/deron

Sam Amick tweeted earlier that Wilson Chandler was talking to the Raptors. He then replied to a question from somebody saying that Chandler's agent said they're talking to 7 teams. Hopefully (probably) we're one of 'em.

Sam Amick @sam_amick

Agent says talking to 7 teams RT @JustinDeFeo @sam_amick No other teams in the market for WC?

Guys get over the Chandler pipe dream. He's restricted and Denver has made it clear they will match anything.

delfino, james johnson, and linas kleiza would be good choices. could come relatively cheap for us and we arent looking to trade with teams in the playoff race.

We are 2 players short of a championship. We need a wing defender and a Backup Center. What we got with K-Mart and Evans are back up Power Forwards the replace BG. If DJ were to get hurt we will have a huge spot to fill. I think a back up center is almost as an Important as a Back up Center. Portland signed Joel Pryzbilla today. We need a legit 7 footer. If we get a decent 7 footer and a wing defender. We will win the NBA Championship..
