OFFICIAL LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS 2017 OFFSEASON THREAD (The FO has a lot of work to do...) - Page 129

post #3841 of 3896
From my brief conversation with Jerry, he really wants to make a strong push for PG.

I haven't spoken to Jerry [color]
post #3842 of 3896

I am totally convinced PG or Melo will be a clipper by training camp.

 

Jerry about to put that battery in Lawrence and Doc's back and swing for the fences.

post #3843 of 3896

Seriously, no matter what the FO does, if CP and Blake can't play 70 games a year nothing Jerry West does will matter.

 

We gotta stay healthy.

Cavs' chaos? Good time to read about Jerry West & why Clippers hired him to help recruit LeBron James next summer

 

 

And so it beginsss

post #3845 of 3896

For what it's worth, Frank Isola called Bron leaving for LA the ''worst kept secret in the entire league'' and Woj called it an ''expectation.''

 

Suddenly, this doesn't seem all that unrealistic. It's feasible that the Clippers are trying to Resign Chris and Blake, trade for Melo  or PG, and Sign Bron next summer or something like tht.

 Connecting dots just for the heck of it: Jerry West, new LAC consultant, once tried to hire David Griffin in Memphis.

 

Would NOT be surprised if we added David to the FO. Was rumored for awhile.

Would hiring Griffin make it more or less likely Bron would want to come here? I kind of lost track of whether those two are cool or not.

More likely. Bron had a really good relationship with David Griffin especially due to Griffin's willingness to Make whatever deals bron felt necessary for the team, and Bron was said to be "stunned" and didn't even know that the Cavs fired David.

In Jerry West column, reporting on this Clippers summer & how the Banana Boat Bunch can reunite (sans D-Wade) https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nba/2017/06/19/lebron-james-clippers-jerry-west-nba/410735001/ …

 

 

 

Hot Take: The skeletons for this are already starting to take shape. CP resigns this summer, trade for melo, and have Melo, bron, and Jerry West at the table next summer for Lebron. You also would have richest owner in all of sports at the table for Lebron.

... and once Bron signs, Wade will come play for us for free, just so the superfriends can be complete. 🙌🏻

Yep. Sounds about right. Really hard to trade for star players when you have no picks and no young talent under contract.

Jerry West effect IMO

 

They have to try and grab some sort of assets, wing help, etc. and the only real asset they have under contract is DJ

 

Combine that with the fact that DJ has one year left on his deal, and that the Clips are trying to give Bron a max next summer? It makes total sense.

 

Still think they're trying to put together something to swoop in on PG.

post #3854 of 3896
DJ gotta go. I'd offer him up for Black Gordon Hayward....and get a third team involved and take that Tyson Chandler jawn.

I like that man. I like it a ****** lot. Bring back Yae Yae, Cp and Blake too.

One more run!

If Yae Yae wants to stay, he gotta do it on a discount. He ain't worth 18, 20Ms anymore.

 

Other than that I'm with alllll of this.

 

But again, none of this matters if CP and Blake can't play 70 games man. Health. They win 50 plus yearly with Blake and / or CP missing 20 games yearly. They both stay healthy, they'll push for 60 wins, Homecourt until the WCF, and go from there.

^^^ Yeah, I'm fully with shopping DJ. Been saying it for a while now -- precisely because he's our only asset with real trade value. Glad to see Doc and co (probably thanks to West's influence) are catching on.

Would be awesome if NYK buys out Melo and we could make something happen with that.

 

I want Melo.

 

Would also be awesome x10 to grab Paul George but the gymnastics that would have to occur to make this happen seems to be too large.

post #3858 of 3896

Lastest on the PG front

 

The Clippers reached out to Detroit to package DJ and the 12th for Drummond, then circling back to the pacers and using Rivers / 12th/ Future 1st Rounder (Protected) for George.

 

Stan wants to get Detroit to being good, and DJ would be an Upgrade at Center for detroit. Issue here probably is that Indy wants a pick better than 12.

 

Which leads to another possibility for the Clippers. Doing the DJ and 12 swap for Drummond, then taking that Drummond and 12 to Phoenix for their 4th overall pick, and making a package that looks like Rivers / 4th Pick / Future First for George.

 

Feasible, but not likely.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding you but the way you're phrasing it soudns like we're trading DJ and a pick for Drummond? No thanks. If it's the other way around doe...Wit it.


Also read the Suns want a proven vet for that #4 pick.

I think DJ is gone sometime before the trade deadline.

Yeah I worded that poorly.

 

We don't even have a pick to trade lmao We're offering DJ for Drummond AND Detroit's 12th and then presenting that to Indy for PG or taking the Drummond and 12th pick and trading that for Phx's 4th in this year's draft.

 

From what I've read and gathered, the Clips are trying to do something like this.

^^^ Yeah, I said a few pages back they'd need help from another team to get PG. Nice to know they're trying to get creative. Still a big long shot, but my fingers are crossed something happens.

So apparently Boston is working pretty hard to get Porzingis from the Knicks. If they succeed, I assume that would take them out of the market for BG since they also already have Horford. Something to watch...

According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, the Clippers are among several teams who are working to get into the top 4 of the NBA Draft with hopes of selecting Josh Jackson, a 20-year-old 6’8” small forward from Kansas. Jackson averaged 16.3 points, 7.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.7 steals, and 1.1 blocks in his only collegiate season, shooting 54.9% from the field and 37.8% from deep. While still obviously young, the consensus top-5 pick is somewhat old for a college freshman and he will turn 21 during January of his rookie season.

 

Per Shelburne, DeAndre Jordan is could be the piece that the Celtics ask for in exchange for the third overall pick. The Spurs and Bulls are also interested, with valuable established veterans in LaMarcus Aldridge and Jimmy Butler.

 

Not mad. At least we're trying to make some **** happen.

^^^ Not mad at all. I been saying I don't want to see basically the same team again next year. Seems like a pretty strong chance we won't.
