They probably going to keep Camby though.

Clippers will have a good lineup, and still win 35-40 games. Hoping Griffin doesn't catch the injury bug that seems to be around the Clips

Derick713
05-19-2009, 10:01 PM
Not so FAST! The Clippers will most likely trade the pick to the Grizzlies which would be a move down to the two spot. The Clippers want a gaurd and the Grizzlies want a Power Forward. The Grizzlies might be willing to take on Baron Davis' long contract for Blake Griffin. They did it for Mayo.

Derick713
05-19-2009, 10:03 PM
If the Clippers keep the 1st pick then it would mean that one of Kaman, Camby, Randolph, and Jordan could be dealt. It also gives the Clippers a way of getting rid of Baron Davis.

clip-hop
05-19-2009, 10:12 PM
I don't see them trading Camby because it would be smart to hold on to his expiring contract, plus he's Dunleavy's favorite player on the team. They suppossedly were close to trading Kaman for Jason Richardson last season, but I think they'd be better served to trade him to give the bench some depth. I'm sure they'd love to dump Randolph's lousy contract, but he has to be one of the most untradeable players in the league.

ThaBoomer
05-19-2009, 10:14 PM
Well, the Clippers have managed to screw up the number one pick before...Olowokondi:speechless: The number one has only been traded twice in NBA history, but I wonder what are the odds the Clips try to trade out? I mean, it should seem like a no brainer, but hey, you don't pick in the lottery 20 TIMES if you are a smart franchise.

The Clippers will probably select Tyler Hansborough... so they can bring a championship mindset to the team. Because... well, they have a lot of talent... but are still awful and don't know how to draft. Kaman, Camby, Randolph, and Griffin?

I got it
PG- Davis
SG- Griffin
SF- Randolph
PF- Kaman
C- Camby

Leading the league in blocks every season for years to come.

Bet you anything they trade Mike Conley for Jerryd Bayless & a Future 1st Round Pick. Rubio starts and a talented combo guard in Bayless comes off the bench. Memphis needs to go out and try to sign Carlos Boozer or Lamar Odom.

They need to start operation 'Get Rid Of Randolph'. This would remind me alot when Portland tried to get rid of Randolph after they drafted Roy, Aldridge and Oden.

If Donald Sterling and Dunleavy reject Randolph...who else will be sucker enough to take him? The Clippers should also rid themselves of Baron Davis, Al Thornton and Ricky Davis for that matter.

For a young potential superstar in the making, Griffin needs to develope in an cohesive lockerroom first and foremost. If you have a chance to draft a player like him...blow up the team start from scratch. They have their building blocks in Gordon and now Griffin.

Next to Gordon I would keep either Camby or Kaman (a veteran big to help Griffin learn the NBA ropes)...everyone else on the roster should become trade bait.

They need some team first guys around Gordon and Griffin...which may mean the Clippers will still stink next season...but at least it will be an exciting team with a great future.

MagicBucsSox
05-20-2009, 02:09 PM
you guys can end the crazy speculations. the coach has spoken and the gm already sported a 23 griffin clip jersey.

Dunleavy: We're Taking Griffin
Gordon: Clippers Can Turn It Around

May 20, 2009 11:28 AM EST
Mike Dunleavy has saved Clippers' fans and the NBA from a lot of drama over the next month.

"Clearly, we're taking Blake Griffin," Clippers General Manager and Coach Mike Dunleavy said in a telephone interview from Barcelona, Spain.

"This guy is the No. 1 pick. We're extremely excited. He's the guy."

I agree they already have a log jam at that position. Why not pick Rubio with the 1st pick and trade Bdiddy. That would be a better move. Ricky Rubio = excitement

05-20-2009, 03:50 PM
Clippers will still be trash of Los Angeles. The problem starts with the fact Mike Dunleavy is the coach still. I mean the dude blows, his teams have been terrible for years now with the exception of that one season. But even then he made a horrible coaching moves which cost them the series vs Phoenix.

Blake would be much better fit on either the Thunder or Grizzlies, I truly feel bad he will probably end up a Clipper.

lakerboy
05-20-2009, 04:19 PM
The Clippers have good assets IMO.

Zach would be the hardest to trade, but there will be teams that'll want him. He's a good low post scorer, which is rare to find in the league.

Chris Kaman is also a good low post player. He just gets injured a lot. IMO, Clippers should try to keep him with Griffin at the PF spot.

Baron needs to go for the rebuilding to start. A lot of NBA teams can use this guy. Maybe they trade him for a young PG.

Swish-a-licious
05-20-2009, 04:39 PM
If they were smart they would draft Blake and work a swap with Memphis to get Rubio. Rubio's upside is just as big, and the B Diddy gamble didn't pay off. They do not need another PF. Get Rubio and see what you can get for Davis.

It would because the Clippers have no 'must re-sign players' for the long term. Davis and Randolph are still pretty good individual players...but they are hell when you want to create a team that has good chemistry because of their me first attitude.

If you want to draft a prospect like Griffin, a great lockerroom environment and good players to develope among are underrated things.

I'm not sure they have to move one of these guys. Depth in the front court isn't a bad thing, especially since Kaman and Randolph could be hard to trade. Camby is worth holding on to.

You're right on the money. We're taking Griffin, and we're keeping him. It'd take a hell of an offer for us to trade the pick. We're overloaded in the frontcourt. Griffin should not come of the bench, and nor should Randolph. There was talk about the possibility of playing Griffin at the 3 as well as the 4. My concern with that is his speed and lack of a solid jumper, but I'm sure he could grow into the role and be a 3-4 combo player.

It seems like the only Clipper guaranteed to be in LA come next season is Eric Gordon. Everything else is still up in the air.

They need to move z-bo but the problem is no one wants him. They got to move camby or kaman
