do the clippers ever plan on playing defense?

Don't get this for the Clips. Your giving up a young pg, who will be your backup once Mo leaves this summer, for a guy in Crawford who is an undersized 2 guard and will have little trade value around the league.

Would be interesting if they decided to utilize him as a 6th/7th man with Mo or if they just replaced him with Foye and started at the 2. I'd do the latter.

LA is going for it all. They are really missing Billups but I'm not sure Crawford can replace him.

I can see this happening, don't know if it's the best thing for the Clips in the long term though. After Bledsoe is gone, they essentially have 0 trade assets.

I don't care if the Clipps get Lebron d12 or whatever as long Vinny is the coach they won't win.

A Mo for Crawford straight up deal woulda made sense until I seen Mo's contract...

clippers reminding me of NY a little, stop stockpiling selfish offensive players and get some defenders.

they should be trading for wallace, not crawford.

Bledsoe is healthy and played great last night, Mo Williams has been great, CP3 is CP3, Foye has been solid.

I don't get this...

I like this for LAC. They need to stay competitive. We don't know what Bledsoe will be and it's not worth 'waiting to see' at the risk of losing Paul to FA after next year.

He'll help the team out. It's a short and cheap contract too so they don't have to worry about cap flexibiltiy.

The only thing I question is, is this current Clippers team, even with Crawford, better than the Hornets teams of the last 5 years?

Chandler is/was better than Jordan. West wasn't that far off from what Blake gives the Clippers.
The good thing is, LAC is young and can grow to better players. We'll see.

Bad trade for the Clips i guess. But they are active, i'll give them that. Giving up to much for Crawford imo

Ehhh... I retract my statement. It's basically substituting Crawford in place of Bledsoe. Solid trade.

You like Bledsoe?

He played really well in the fourth quarter last night, that's for sure. I think Crawford would be a perfect fit to replace Chauncey's role on the team though.

Clips wanted to send foye, blazers said bledsoe, so now they wanna dump gomes on them.

Crawford is undersized he's 6'5 200lb. What more size do you want? lol

Why would blazers want gomes? puzzles me. Maybe he's filler because we had him before then we cut him a few days later I imagine something similar will happen if deal goes through

I'm gonna miss Crawford I actually like him, I think he'll do great starting for the Clips, pair him with CP3 and you really can't go wrong. Cp3 will keep him in check and it'll be a recipe for instant offense.

Go Blazers~!

Yea that's the only way the clippers remind me of NY, LAC are actually winning and not needing time to gel. If You told me a year ago a team of Amare and Melo would not do as well as a team comprised of Blake Griffin and CP3. I would have laughed.

Bledsoe is going to be a really good. Border line All Star PG.

Would be a steal for the Blazers.

Blazers trading the recently signed Joel Pryzbilla to the Rockets for a protected 2nd round pick and cash considerations.

Yes please. Loved Bledsoe coming out of Kentucky. Crawford has been a great teammate and one of the few players who hasn't given up, be happy to see him go to a contender like the clippers.

Oh man, Crawford is like a taller Mo Williams. Would be great for Clippers. I'd be willing to part with Bledsoe and Foye for him.

Paul/Williams
Crawford/Williams
Butler/Simmons
Griffin/Martin
Jordan/Evans

BTW Evans is amazing in a hilarious/awesome way. He'll have two solid weeks in the national spotlight before his career is over.

Good deal for both teams, the Clippers need a SG and the Blazers a PG.

Why? Crawford is playing better than him right now and is younger.
