View Full Version : Hoopsworld: Clippers emerge in Dwight race(Jordan Bledsoe butler)

Another potential suitor has emerged in the chase for Dwight Howard - the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Clippers have become a “real and viable suitor” according to Hoops World.
Per ProBasketballdraft, the Clippers may be looking to move DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler, but that doesn’t seem like nearly enough for Howard. Jordan has three years and just under $33 million left on his deal and doesn’t exactly put up huge numbers (7.4 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game last season). However, Jordan is just 23 years old. Butler still has two years and $16 million left and is 32 years old. Bledsoe is in intriguing prospect, but you’d have to assume the Magic would want Blake Griffin back in any deal involving Howard..

Bledsoe has star potential. DJ can and probably will have a bounceback year. Nothing to laugh at considering how big of a risk Dwight is right now and how much of a dick he is. That being said... please keep him away from the Clippers. BIG risk and possible chemistry risk.

Unless Blake is involved, I don't see how they land Dwight.

DJ has no offensive game no matter what way you look at it. I dont care of he's tall and can dunk from the three point line, he can't shoot if his life depended on it. That being said, I doubt Orlando does this trade unless Clips part with Griffin. If Howard didn't undergo back surgery it would def be an interesting trade

DJ having a bounce back year? He just posted his best numbers ever, and they weren't even that good. I love DJ, but I don't think he'll ever average 10 ppg in this league. Someone has to get him the ball within 4 feet of the basket. Bledsoe is going to be a good player I agree, but I don't know if he'll be a "star" in his career.

I do agree with you though, I wouldn't want Howard on my team either. Anything short of Blake won't get it done.

dj's contract is laughable

butler is too much of a health risk and inconsistent

bledsoe is the only shine in that deal

But thats easily the worst package on the table for orlando right now. Unless Griffin comes along, theres a 0% chance clippers get him, if they did, it would be the steal of the century and the clippers would look amazing with their big 3 (dwight, cp3, griffin).

Star potential didn't literally mean all star. I think on right team Bledsoe can be a borderline all star PG a few years like prime Jameer Nelson was but his defense REALLY changes games. DJ can definitely put up something like 12/12/3 for a few years if he keeps working which is very good for a defensive center.

I'm actually surprised clippers are doing this to deandre jordan. They JUST signed him to a fat deal last season and are already waving him around, he's young, this is gonna mess with his mind for sure.

Unless clippers offer blake, they shouldnt even bother odom'ing their current stars. just asking for trouble

12/12/3 are Tyson Chandler's numbers. DJ's gonna have to work a hell of a lot more to get an extra 9.0 PPG added to what he normally averages.

So the Magic would take a deal based on potential that isn't even that great over the lakers deal? (Bynum and filler)

Well, if Dwight considers signing long term with the Clips, and not any other team, then I am sure the Clippers will become more appealing than the other teams he refuses to re-up with.

Think about it, other teams are hesitant about renting Dwight for a year, so if Dwight himself decides to extend with the clippers, then there should be no problem for the Clips to push their chips in while others back out-- even if it means no BG.

:facepalm: he averaged 7.5 ppg. So he needs 4 ppg more. Even 10 ppg/12 rpg would be great. Where did you get 9 ppg? Only reason he doesn't average 10 ppg is because of low minutes.

I honestly like both players, and I see where your getting at with Bledsoe and I agree. I thought you were indicating that he'd be a top-tier pg in this league, which he might, but is very unlikely.

Man, DJ is like the nicest guy ever, but his offense has not improved in 4 years. I give him credit for working hard on his ft shooting, but he still has to be a better rebounder. His athletic ability and size is ridiculous, and Blake still outrebounds him. He also still fouls too much, and cannot guard elite centers like Bynum, Howard, etc.

I hope I'm wrong about DJ, I really am. I want him to be like Tyson Chandler, but the problem is he has no mean streak whatsoever

Ah sorry, I was probably looking at his playoffs PPG, which was a mind-boggling 4.5 PPG.

And whose fault is it that he's doesn't get any minutes?


Reggie Evans impacts the game more than the athletic big black hole that is DeAndre Jordan. That's why he and KMart got the minutes in the crucial moments.

This is true, if Howard decides he wants to play for the clippers he can make the ultimate power move and control his destiny... All he has to say as that he is going to LA either now or at the end of the season and will not sign an extension with any other team.

So essentially LAC would then only have to outbid teams that wants to rent him for 1 year, and with that kind of leverage they could do it without Blake. But Howard needs to put his foot down and stop going back and forth and take control.

If this is true, then both the Clippers, Magic, and Dwight need to get this done.

Dwight has been wanting to play with D-will it seems for a long time, but Chris Paul is arguably a better PG.

If I am LAC, I offer BG and Jordan and Bledsoe for Howard and Ryan Anderson.

Why? Jordan is a poor man's DEFENSIVE version of Dwight.

Ryan Anderson is a very sold PF who spaces the floor for Dwight and will be given plenty of open looks with Paul.

If LAC can have a starting 5 of:

Paul
Billups
Butler
Anderson
DH 12

With Jamal Crawford (rumored to be interested in LAC), along with Foye, Odom, Nick Young coming off the bench, that can be a great team!

Magic will not get a better player than BG, LAC will become a legit title contender for the next 5 years+, Dwight gets to go to a big market and play with arguably the best pure PG in the league.

Yes and nobody in the NBA can beat a Griffin+Jordan package so no need to throw in Bledsoe. Nobody in the NBA outside of Durant, Rose and Lebron have as much trade value as Griffin and with Rose's injury he may be out of that discussion for now. Bledsoe is CP3 insurance.

Clips should NOT include Griffin in a trade for anyone. He is one of the first draft picks to pan out in team history. He is very marketable. He's an exciting and up and coming player.

Dwight has 1 year left...has a worse offensive game than griff...and is an absolute headcase + @$$hole.

Magic have.no leverage.what so.ever. Now im not saying this rumor is true...but really...their options are limited.

Bledsoe is a very good prospect who people are not giving enough credit to. With that being said....he won't net a howard type player...but still holds a lot of value. He's in that Rondo mold.

Imo Clips are best served.staying away from Howard. This team can grow together.

You're saying this to the same group of people who said Bledsoe isn't even worth a 1st rounder in this last draft PERIOD even mid or late draft. I talked to a couple Hoopsworld writers today both of which said Bledsoe's value is extremely high league wide right now and he's very coveted. Right after the playoffs one GM said other GM's are salivating over Bledsoe's upside and athleticism.

Saying his offense hasnt improved in 4 years is false, and FYI, DJ had the higher rebound rate and better O.Reb rate compared to Blake this year.


He also still fouls too much, and cannot guard elite centers like Bynum, Howard, etc.

His foul rate has declined alot over the years and he posts some of the best defensive # in the low post. Hes actually a good 1 on 1 defender but his help responsibility is massive. On the year our defense went to **** when he wasnt on the floor.



I hope I'm wrong about DJ, I really am. I want him to be like Tyson Chandler, but the problem is he has no mean streak whatsoever

Doesnt need it, hes already developing nicely, if you remember a young Tyson, you would remember how badly he struggled at various points in his career as well.

07-03-2012, 03:25 AM
Ah sorry, I was probably looking at his playoffs PPG, which was a mind-boggling 4.5 PPG.
Fun fact, that 4.5 mark is actually higher than 3 of Tyson Chandlers playoff runs, if you can call a first round a playoff run. On his career TC only averages 7 in 29 minutes.



Reggie Evans impacts the game more than the athletic big black hole that is DeAndre Jordan. That's why he and KMart got the minutes in the crucial moments.

He had a poor playoff showing, it doesnt mean those players impact the game more. It simply means DJ struggled in his first taste of playoff action. At one point Blake couldnt finish a game ahead of K-Mart, these guys are vets, they should be more prepared. Going forward however, it would be ridiculous to ignore the regular season completely. Until DJ is exposed as a perennial playoff choker I dont believe your opinion. Seems to me that he just didnt bring his best stuff and even then was still getting more minutes than the reserves.

If LAC can have a starting 5 of:

Paul
Billups
Butler
Anderson
DH 12

With Jamal Crawford (rumored to be interested in LAC), along with Foye, Odom, Nick Young coming off the bench, that can be a great team!

Magic will not get a better player than BG, LAC will become a legit title contender for the next 5 years+, Dwight gets to go to a big market and play with arguably the best pure PG in the league.

:eyebrow:...Andrew Bynum, has anyone heard of that guy?

Saying his offense hasnt improved in 4 years is false, and FYI, DJ had the higher rebound rate and better O.Reb rate compared to Blake this year.


His foul rate has declined alot over the years and he posts some of the best defensive # in the low post. Hes actually a good 1 on 1 defender but his help responsibility is massive. On the year our defense went to **** when he wasnt on the floor.



Doesnt need it, hes already developing nicely, if you remember a young Tyson, you would remember how badly he struggled at various points in his career as well.

Too bad Deandre Jordan still isn't a very good player, You can say what you want, but he still averaged less than 8ppg and 9rpg, You'd think having someone like Chris Paul throwing to you throughout the game would help a little more than it did last season.

Thats not that bad an offer...compared to him leaving for NOTHING. Would Dwight extend if he went on a team with CP3 and Blake Griffin?

Nets still hold a better deal.

This is just trash if the magic did this without a griffin move.

Although id trade griffin for howard only for the fact a dwight/paul duo sounds more appealing than a griffin/paul duo

Well hes not a very good player but hes not remotely close to being a bad one or beneath the other players cited, thats all I was saying so I dont disagree here. But your statistical claims dont mean anything to me, particularly when his value comes on the defensive end. And I dont buy into cliches as simple as CP3=Better stats for teammates, and I highly doubt your the expert on how 2 players should interact statistically.

ATL and the Lakers have the best compensation for Dwight.

The best compensation would be from the Bulls.
Noah + Deng + Gibson + Bobcats pick for Howard and Turk

Heh ill live. Unlike most fellow Nets fans i have faith in Brook Lopez and feel he can be a top 3 C in the league.
