    Real nice pickup. Have to put the Clips as a playoff contender for sure now.

    Because that’s cool again, right? Honestly as a Mavs fan, this upsets me. I’ve always been a Caron fan. Wish he would have been more than a cheerleader for the Maverick run.

    Wow. Clippers might really be making the playoffs now.

  • Jetfuel

    Sweet! Prolly means Jamal will sign with the bulls, which would be perfect!!

    Chris Paul needs to be pushing to go to the Clippers. Period.
    That team can compete for the next four years with their current set up.
    The only question is will Donald Sterling pay Blake and Gordon when the time comes. But a team of CP3, Gordon, Blake, Butler and whoever plays center is dangerous for real.

    Good move clips. Y’all got a nice team coming along.

  • fruizm

    clippers, t-wolves, thunder and grizzlies will be powerful in the next years to come…its like BIZARRO NBA.

  • edboswell

    Assuming Gomes and Foye step up their games in order to get some minutes, the Clippers should be one of the deadliest teams in the league when they face a team playing back to back games. Bledsoe can run a veteran PG ragged, and Mo WIlliams can play when they need points and clutch shooting. If Aminu shows improvement, and Butler plays some minutes at SG, the Clippers can emerge as one of the top teams in the West for this season. Youth with some experience, coupled with a deep roster and Blake Griffin should provide for some great games this year. I predict the Clippers finish no worse than #4 in the West, probably 2 or 3.

    Good move.

  • Red

    Watch them still suck LOL

  • matt

    And team owners were complaining about bad contracts? Seriously though LAC got better but now they have less $ to work with. They still have MoWill,DJordan,the Minny pick and Aminu as trade bait. However, maybe they get that ultimate piece via minny’s unprotected pick. I think Paul will wait it out and go to NYK in the summer. Dwight would look good in LAC but I think they should keep what they have. Plus, I think LAL is looking very likely to attain Dwight.

    Was really hoping he’d sign with the Bulls and make them title contenders.

  • bentherealdeal

    Clippers are paying Caron Butler and Ryan Gomes $12 million next season to block Al Farouq-Aminu from playing. You can’t make this stuff up.

  • http://theurbangriot.com The NUPE

    Hard to argue aganist them making the playoffs – unless injury happens, they are in. Great pick-up and not a bad contract. They can genuinely challenge anybody, but one CP3 or D12 away from being a favorite. (Although Batier in Miami is a formidable squad).

    damn it.

    Is DeAndre Jordan a UFA or a RFA? If they can keep him that starting 5 would be exciting as hell!

  • http://www.slamonline.com megatron

    dfrance, he is RFA

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Called that.

    Time to endorse that “Tough Juice” in LA it’ll sell like hot cakes! Honestly Lakers y’all picked up on Kap-oh-no instead of Caron?! I seriously think there’s beef in the organization I hope my Lakers sort that nonsense out!

  • matt

    @ Cheshire. Kapono cost the lakers 1.2 million for 1 year. Butler cost the clippers 24 million. For a team already paying a lot luxury tax wise, they made a good choice. LAC must trade Aminu now.

  • projectphantom

    better reason for deAndre to stay now

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Is Aminu actually good? I haven’t seen enough of him. Man, I want the NBA to offer a good deal on League Pass this year so I can justify buying it again.

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    DeAndre should drop the “De” part of his name. I know its a thing for black women to name their children “De”, “Le”, “La”, etc. but that crap has to go. You are a GROWN MAN – drop the prefix, you sound feminine!!

  • LA Huey

    CP3 should not want to go there. Sterling MIGHT pay Griffin but I doubt he’ll open his wallet for Gordon. And I also doubt he’ll pay for a better coach than VDN.

  • Goode

    Wow. I’m a fan of the team down the hall from them and I am getting more unhappy with the way the Clippers are looking by the second. If they can shake the Clipper Crappiness and use this talented-as-all-hell roster, they can make some noise.

  • http://www.t-mac.com/tmac/index unf*ckwitable

    Clippers are on their way.

  • iLL will

    Tuff Juice.

  • http://www.michaelcho.com M Cho

    I have good hopes for the Clipshow this year…and then I remember that Vinnie is the coach.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Why does Donald Sterling even own a sports team? lol… Seriously. Can the members of a franchise demand that its owner sell them?? If ever a sports team was in need of a proletariat revolution, it’s the Clippers. Get that man the f*ck out of LA.

  • http://www.slamonline.com PapaDuck

    am I the only one that’s SUPER excited for the next couple of years. A lot of good young teams in the east and the west. a lot of Good basketball to be played

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Allen, Aminu can be good. Decent athlete, super long, improveable jumper, decent iq, good on-ball defender. Seems like he may have maturity issues from what I’ve seen though. Definitely more of a prospect than anything.

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    @nbk – plus, he is lazy as heck and his bottom lip has to be a liability on defense. Slows him down.

  • jimgbo

    Overpaid imo. 7×3 is what I would have offered him.

  • DukeFromDeep

    C’mon the Clip’s. I just bet a ton they make the playoffs. Don’t let me down Blake, DJ, EG, Mo ans Kaman.

    still won’t get past the suns for that 5th spot in the playoffs.
