We traded our rights to Sofo who is most likely never going to come over here. Great trade we got a good shooter and a good defender. Basically Randy Foye but a little taller.

Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine

Clippers just announced that they've acquired Willie Green from Dealin' Danny Ferry's Atlanta Hawks for draft rights to Sofo Schortsanitis

IMO, another solid pick up by our 3-headed FO. A good back up wing player, which is what we needed.

Cancel the little taller part I thought he was 6'5 but apparently he is 6'3. So we resigned Randy Foye basically

Doesn't it seem like Roeser/Vinny are just sitting in their offices reading CTB for ideas and then going out and doing exactly what we suggest. It's uncanny this summer.

This is a great signing. I think we're done. Excellent depth at all positions. Wow we are going to be good.

Side benefit is that we don't have to ever talk about Sofo again.

LMFAO at who we traded. Just watch Sofo become a top 5 center for a few seasons.

I love these off season moves.Have my problems with how VDN coaches but as a GM he along with the rest of our FO did a amazing job.I think we could still use another SF but man is this roster deep.I can't wait for this season to start.Expecting the Clippers to have a great season.

haven't seen Willie Green play too much but he played with CP3 in 2010-11. CP3 is recruiting most if not all of these players so it will be sad if he ditched us next season.

Have you seen Sofo play? No way he ever becomes a top center in the NBA. Heck, at this rate, I'm doubtful he's ever going to actually play in the NBA.

This is by far the most productive Off-season the Clippers ever had, even more productive than last year's off-season. We completely upgraded our bench in a single off-season. Most teams take several different off-seasons to make the moves the Clippers front office made this summer.

-Bledsoe with more minutes is an upgrade over Mo Williams

-Hill is an upgrade over Nick Young

-Odom is an upgrade over K-Mart

-Turiaf is somewhat an upgrade over Reggie

-Crawford is an upgrade over Foye

-Green is a nice addition, especially if there's injuries to our backcourt

I would like to give somebody the GM of the Year award except for we don't have. This summer has gone so well, I hope we never get one.

Anyway, Willie is probably the best shooting FA even before the first FA was signed.

47% from the field

44% from the 3

86% from the line

We were all looking for that great shooting SG who could spread the floor. This is the guy. Celebration is in order. Who is buying the beer.

Agreed! I've never seen a season where the Clippers could afford a starter to go down for a month and it wouldn't destroy us. Amazing depth for the first time ever and we did it all in one summer.

Great work Clipps! Western Conf champs here we come.

For Sofo?! Amazing pickup. I can't believe this off season, just unbelieveble. Really good job bringing in caliber players. Can't ask for more, now it's time to bring it!

CP, EBled

Billups, Jamal, Green, Travis

Butler, Hill, Ammo?

Blake, Odom, Thompkins

DJ, Hollins, Turiaf

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

I've been a huge fan of Sofo since he was a teenage phenom in Greece(Im Greek obviously)disappointed the Clippers never gave him a chance because I still think he would have been really good in the NBA but as we all know he was never going to make the roster with the Clippers. Willie Green though is a great signing I just hope he doesn't take to many of Eric Bledsoe's minutes. I'm also REALLY curious to see how Vinnie Del Negro will deal with such a deep roster sine he did such a great job last year(obviously sarcastic). Great signing though ,oh and Sofo just recently signed a contract with Panathainakos and I don't think had any plans anymore of coming overseas

I don't remember Willie green playing at all. But based on the rest of you he seems like a decent pick up. I will have to reserve judgement on him tell I see him play for now. Not sure what he brings since he is only 6'3". I think we're also at 14 players. While only 12 can be on the bench. 15 is the max of players who can have contracts. Plus we still are bringing in Adam for training camp. I am happy that the Clips signed Willie. Because it shows that the Clippers are going all out trying to add talent to the team. So I am glad the Clips are doing all they can trying to upgrade the team. I think the Clippers definetly could of made a few better decisions. Specifically Turiaf, Crawford and Hollins. I still think there were some better players available. But for sure this is the best Off Season. I have ever seen the Clippers have. So best on that I give Kudos to Vinny and the front office for the effort being put together.

Kudos Clippers!

I'm surprised we got anything for SOFO because he's not been a major contributor on any Euro league team. A case of beer would've been fine but getting Green makes it a huge positive for us. I'd say we are done. The FO will probably want to keep the 15th spot open for contingency. Guess that means AMMO isn't coming after all. Not that i'm sad about it. IMO It's been the best off season we've ever had. Been a long time coming but I know a change is gonna come.

I really wanted to see sofo 2. But it's been so long. I even forgot we had his rights. So I think it's good because at least we can use Willie now.

Sofo was overweight and overrated.

Glad we got something out of that draft bust.

^ Nice Dunk. Good Sign. I don't think Foye can jump like that. Sounds like Mike Smith calling A BG dunk. Really sounded like a Mozgov dunk.

I'm no expert on him but supposedly he was lock down early in his career. Now at 31years old, he's probably still above average.

He easily replaces Foye and is insurance should Chauncey go down (God forbid).

This is the same kind of gift we just gave Brooklyn with Reggie. They'll never bring Sofo over. They just didn't want to resign Green but had enough respect for him to do an S&T.

^^^ Our offseason has been so busy that I actually forgot about getting Odom, since it was the first thing that happened. LOL!

We definitely look loaded on paper. The first two players on the roster at positions 1-4 are either all-stars, former all-stars or former sixth men of the year. 5 is our weakest position, but we go two deep there with young, big, athletic guys. And all the 3rd stringers look like capable contributors.

CP3 makes for a great GM. All these deals had to have been co-signed by the great point god himself.

Willie Green shot 44 percent from deep last year which was near the top of the league. His PER 36 scoring was 16 ppg and he shot 47 percent from the field and nearly 86 percent from the line.

Good to hear. So he's a strong defender and a pretty good shooter? Isn't that what we needed? Awesome pickup.

Greatest offseason in Clippers history. If there's any way to convince CP3 that we're going to surround him with studs as long as he wears the red and blue, we've done it in the last month. Here we come, OKC!
