We're over the cap. Even if we amnesty Gomes, we are over the cap. Which means we need an exception to sign someone else, however you do it, unless it's through a trade. An amnesty on Gomes makes no sense. It does nothing. All it means is paying a guy to practice against our team, or paying a guy to do nothing at all. I'd rather pay the guy to practice against the team.

We only have one SG on the roster as Billups is out half the season and Leslie may not even make the team. We need both a backup SG and backup SF. Belinelli is a nice cheap option to come off the bench until Billups can play.

Why is it that management always manages to chase all the players I don't want, I mean they could go after Ronnie Brewer or Micheal Petrius.

Maybe cause you're not part of the organization and they don't seek a fans approval? Just going off a hunch...

Very Happy

if bellineli was as good at basketball as balotelli is at soccer, we would have a star lol. i still like my trade proposal and it could possibly work. gomes+2nd rd pick or future first for bellineli and jason smith.

I think BG and Smith would work really good together look at Artest and Bryant! 2 bitter enemies put in one team and playing together! But I don't think that NO will accept that trade. They're craving bigs and not gonna give one away!

So OKC signed Hollis Thompson to a 3year deal. 6'8" sharpshooter who can play the 2&3, defend, good glue guy. #missedtheboat

@cp3best, idk if smith and bg are enemies. he cheapshotted blake, but apologized for it. i mean Odom and bg were more like enemies when they played each other but im sure bg just brushes that off. id offer them a future first (contingent we dont trade for marshon brooks) plus gomes for bellineli and smith. the hornets will like that trade. they can also resign kaman which will help them with the loss of smith. @ekker, wasnt he their draft pick?? did we pass on him?

Yeah that's what I said that BG and Smith will be good together. NO isn't resigning Kaman though.

no u said they were bitter enemies. enemies is too harsh imo. its not anything close to artest and kobe. just cuz he cheapshotted bg doesnt make smith his enemy. but yes, they would get over that if they havent already. where do u get that kaman is not resigning with nola? hes looking at other teams, but there is a good chance he resigns with nola. i dont think davis is their starting center. if he is good luck to the hornets.

He's signing with Mavs, and he was unrestricted, NO said they don't want to sign him!

Since the Clippers are possibly going after Marco does that mean trade talk with the Nets for M.B is done?

I wonder what other guard we will try and sign. What a surprise a former guard acting as a gm is over filling team with guards. We goin to have guards playing backup pf and cs. Smh

Davis is the new face of the franchise and is a defensive beast. Dont think they will have any problem with him being the starting center.

Kind of hard for me to be too critical of the front office not signing and undrafted rookie. I'd rather see what we can get out of the young guys we already drafted (Thompson and Leslie) and save a roster spot for a veteran who is more likely to contribute, e.g. Belinelli.

@cp3best, u should chill with your statements ending with exclamation points. looks like u are screaming. i know u are still a kid and that might be an accidental exclamation point, but relax. just a heads up. Smile. @clipperboy24, i guess other teams wont have a problem with an undersized anthony davis playing center as well. but im happy for kaman moving on to the mavs. will fit in well with dirk.

It sucks. Reggie Evans trade was official today. LAC dont get that 2nd rd pick directly. BKN has the rights to swap 2016 2nd rd picks with LAC. idk how. the SAS owns our 2016 2nd rd pick.

Comparing what I'd like to do to what their doing ; they should , in fact anybody with half a brain would probably do a better job.

It's still gotta be tough though to follow up someone that just left........especially if they left you with a salary cap mess, multiple bad contracts, etc. I'm sure not having a GM isn't helping matters either. LoL.

This could be for the 2nd round pick we got from the Nets. I doubt we give up a 1st rounder for Belinelli. I'd honestly rather just give the Nets a protected Lottery pick for Marshon Brooks.

Belinelli is nothing but shooting. He does not play D and does not do much else. I'd rather not have another Vlad Rad experiment player on this team.

Pull a Rasual Butler trade and get him with our second round pick. Ironically, that how we the other Butler.

Wonder if Ronnie Brewer becoming a UFA is giving the Clips some hesitation to trade for Marco. You figure if they can get Brewer for BAE and then use trade assets to get a big, that'd solve our holes more than getting Marco and Hollins. Depends on the deals the FO can get done, I don't mind NOH holding up trades if that gives us more time to shop around.

Pincus is reporting differently:

Eric Pincus ‏@EricPincus

I actually heard CP3 partial to some of his old mates - Hilton Armstrong, Marco Bellineli re: Clippers

So, we'll see.

If you can believe this, we didn't even get a 2nd round pick from the Nets in that trade. We recieved the right to swap 2nd round picks in like 2017. We handed him over for NOTHING. What was the point to this you might ask? I have no freaking idea! Maybe it was the Russian's birthday or something. ridiculous.

I think the only way we can trade Gomes is if we want to take a bad contract back or just throw a 1st round pick away.

There's a lot less of those bad contracts out there because all these teams have been using the amnesty. A guy like Drew Gooden for 7mil per year and 3 more years, we could probably get but that would be dumb.

Pretty sure Sterling is going to be philosophically opposed to using the amnesty so we'll probably keep Gomes as 14th or 15th guy. He'll have to endure the humiliation of sitting in a suit every game next to Leslie. And he deserves it.

Aside from the expiring contract who would want him. I don't blame NOLA at all for saying no thank you.

Hey we should send Gomes to the Blazers to re unite him with Olshey! wink

We now have Odom who is going to be the backup PF... I liked Reggie, but this is a big improvement... Unfortunately, guys like Reggie go from team to team because those minimum contract guys are the last guys you have to pick up...

How about making a trade 4 Austin Daye(Detroit Pistons SF) a 6'10 SF that's a great shooter from the corners.Detroit has a bunch of SF's and we could use his length on D to back up Caron and learn from him this year.<he's still on a rookie contract so he'ld be cheap. Why not a Randy Foye sign and trade and a future 2nd round pick

Sometimes when a players confidence has been beaten the best thing is to find a change of scenery. I think that's what has happened to Gomes.
