Clippers Trade Quentin Richardson to Wolves

So much for the Q-Rich noggin knocking homecoming: “The Los Angeles Clippers have reached an agreement in principle to trade guard Quentin Richardson to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Sebastian Telfair, Mark Madsen and Craig Smith, leagues sources said Monday.”

    Crap. Looks like Bassy’s career will forever be full of “potential”. With the Clippers. Sucks.

    I feel for Mad Dog.

    Madsen’s going to be hating life, getting readi in the same locker room where he was once a champion and now will be a barnacle in the same room for a team full of sh*t.

    ^I doubt that was the return to L.A. that he was hoping for.

    Good move for the Wolves. I have been wondering recently with this guard heavy class, which four or so guards will make the all-rookie teams at the end of the season. This shows that Flynn is going to be given the keys all season and could propel him to top 5 rookie type production.

    CRAIG SMITH?! That is a steal…

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    but does this mean Rubio is comming over?

  • http://ballislife.com Moose

    Craig Smith is my man. BC…..when it was him, Dudley, Sean Williams….those were the days at Conte Forum. Those games were fun to go to.

  • Tenorca

    Wow. Telfair, Madsen, and Q in the same trade. What a giant turd.
    Craig Smith is nice though.

  • http://ballislife.com Moose

    BETCATS check your email homie. Bachi TV taking over.

  • tavoris

    wait…did the clippers just trade away one PF, only to trade for two more? and do they really need a PG with the 2 they already have? I guess they REALLY want Griffin and Gordon to face almost-constant double teams now.

  • http://www.alllooksame.com Tarzan Cooper

    is flynn the only pg in minny now?

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    I’m guessing Telfair and Madsen will be released.

  • lankan23

    woww…richardson got traded again haha first it was memphis then l.a now the timberwolves and it all happend this summer…i won’t be surprised if he got traded again :P

  • adbphilly

    quentin has been to more cities in the past month than i have my whole life.

  • David

    Geez, Dunleavy’s busy. This reminds me of a team we played against recently where the opposing PG and some others would grunt and breathe heavily doing even the most basic things, like bringing the ball up court. Lots of effort, little effect. And I guess the Clips roster is like one of those image puzzles where you have to slide the tiles around. For a lot of people, they’re too frustrating and the pay off is too small. Good luck, Papa Dun.

    haha at adbphilly me too

  • lawlow

    madsen is still in the league..waaat

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    PG- Baron
    SG- Gordon
    SF- Thornton
    PF- Griffin
    C-Camby or Kaman
    That, to me, looks like a playoff contender. However, it is the Clips we are talking about.

  • malik taylor.

    Not a badd squad if the Clips can stay healthy.
    Looks as if Telfair will be released.

  • http://www.sprint.com/pre dma

    telfair to NY!!

  • http://www.sprint.com/pre dma

    what really sucks about Q’s situation is that he went from a crappy team (NY) to a crappier team (Memphis) to an even crappier team (Clips) and then to a worthless team in ‘Sota. How do you get traded from one bottom feeder to another 3 times? i pray to god he gets moved to Sacramento next.

  • http://www.anwilson.blogspot.com rainman10

    Telfair will have his best season this year. No matter where he plays. And I hope this means Ricky is gonna play.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com DP

    Telfair to the d-league! Well, he did alright last year but the dude needs to develop an outside shot or he will never make it. play wit it.

  • Ders

    Why did the Clippers trade Q. away? he’s better than Telfair and those other guys. At least I hope Ricky Davis is gonna play now. AND, I won’t be surprised if Richardson got traded again.
    Still, I’m wondering if the Clippers could make the playoffs. their starting lineup says so, but it is the Los Angeles Clippers, after all.
    Baron Davis, Eric Gordon, Al Thornton, Blake Griffin, Marcus Camby.

    I’m waiting.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    the clippers need a better coach before they can make the playoffs. Too bad that will never happen.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Myles Brown

    Id call Q a hot potato, but then Id run the risk of him trying to eat himself.

  • http://www.blogs.myspace.com/originadro Witness

    I like Q to Minny though. Why arent we talkin about that?

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    I didn’t even know that you could get traded three times in the same summer. Ain’t there a limit? That must be a record, right?

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Craig Smith is a beast. That is all.

  • Pardeep

    I guess A.I. aint coming to Clippers no more.

  • BostonBaller

    Go Eagles!!! Oh, sorry, I was having a Craig Smith flashback or was that a Michael Adams John Bagly flashback Moose?????

  • http://yahoo.com looman40

    craig smith sucks, so does telfair. finally the twolves are starting to make some better decisions, and now madsen can go wave his towel in L.A. Twolves should trade rubio for a small forward

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    BASSY TO THE KNICKS. Let him play his game! We’re close to 2010 anyways… I say 1 year contract for Mr. Telfair.

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    TadOne…That roster looks nice….but how many of those guys will actually stay healthy this year?

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty aka Free Lester Hudson

    I dont know how its possible, but every single day Teddy gets dumber and dumber, its awe inspiring.

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    Quentin Richardson is the new Jimmy Jackson, has game, but can’t stay with one team.

  • tavoris

    BETCATS…so true…so true. How Dunleavy is getting Jerry Sloan treatment is beyond me.

  • http://slamonline.com breeze

    @the seed hes not even jimmy jackson…hes not that talented…and whoever thinks that this team can go to the playoffs…i ask you all to replace what team…remember the suns didnt make it..are you saying that they are better than them i doubt it …i guess staying healthy is a major factor..but they will need a complete turn-around

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com/ Seth

    I may be reaching here, but perhaps this means Minnesota is making space for Rubio to play. Come on, Ricky, do the right thing!

  • K-Nasty

    So the Wolves trade both their experienced point guards (Foye and Telfair) in order to open up the starting spot for some 19 year old who doesn’t even want to play for them? I guess it’s what we’ve come to expect from the only D-League team that gets to play real NBA games.

  • http://www.anwilson.blogspot.com rainman10

    K-Nasty are you talkin about Flynn?

  • http://www.hoopsvibe.com/nba/overdribbling/index276.html chiqo

    am i the only person who had no idea madsen was still in the league?

  • http://www.1227.com CJK

    @K-Nasty– we aren’t talking about the knicks, kings, or clippers.
