View Full Version : CP3 and Dwight

The Dwightmare is over for now, but at the end of the season, he will be a free agent, as will CP3, and if somebody (perhaps the Mavs?) could pull a Pat Riley and clear enough cap space to sign both of them, it could change the landscape of the NBA.

So.. who is going to have the cap space to pull this off? Or are these two staying in LA?

Majority of people in the NBA believe CP3 will make a move to NY via trade. Near the end of the season knicks will terminate Amare's contract to have enough money to sign Paul.

Where the F is your offense going to come from then? Paul and Melo are not taking a team to a championship on their backs. You going to play Camby and Chandler together at the 4 and 5. Then hope to keep teams under 80 ppg?

I'm not too sure about Dwight, but if I was Paul I'd stay in LA. The Clippers are on the right track in terms of what they're doing toward their future.

So, I'm guessing that James Dolan is going to hire an assassin to take down Amar'e and void that contract? Cause you guys don't have the Amnesty clause. Nobody is gonna take that contract back, knowing the Knicks intentions. Why would they allow another big three and move the "rock" that is blocking it?

It's a shame for you guys that they can't trade Amnesties. Cause there are a few teams that would likely be willing to part with theirs (for a price of course) lol

Carmelo one of the best offensive players in the NBA, Iman, JKidd, and whoever we draft.

How was my last post trashing? I honestly don't think anyone is gonna take on Amare's contract, with his injuries and his decline. He's one of my favorite players in the game, but to think his game isn't on the decline is naive.

Also, I'm just going to post the following message as a heads up to the Amnesty Clause usage.. I don't think it will warrant a response:

"Amnesty can be used prior to the 2011-12 through 2015-16 seasons, although teams may use the provision only once in total -- not once per season."

I could see CP3 going to the Knicks but I don't think it makes sense unless they can get a star PF. With Paul, Melo and Chandler thats good but with a mediocre SG and PF they won't go anywhere in the playoffs. They won't have any low post offense to go to and that would make them a lot more one dimensional offensively.

I suppose you're right, but I swear it seems every single offseason I hear a NY fan saying next year Chris Paul will be a Knick... like 100% guaranteed. I mean once a report comes out that says it is plausible then fine I will listen but the season hasn't even started and both the Lakers and Clippers have fantastic supporting casts around both players. There is virtually no incentive whatsoever for either to leave.

hmmm... that's news to me.

I thought a majority of people thought he would test free agency but ultimately stay in LA (a la Deron Williams with BK). You see, Clippers will have his bird rights which means they can pay him more than anyone. Sign and trade would be a possibility, except next year I believe a new provision of the CBA kicks in that keeps teams over cap from acquiring players in sign and trades. From what I've read, many believe the biggest reason he didn't extend with LA is because his max contract will be higher next year with another year experience in the league. Basically he has an opportunity for a pay raise by waiting until next year to do anything, he'd be leaving significant money on the table by extending this year. I tend to believe that also since the Clippers resigned Blake to a multi year extension after CP3 turned his extension down. Blake must have some kind of confidence that CP3 wants to be in LA I would assume.

As for Dwight, lol at all the speculation. It's really just people being hopeful that he'll leave LA...which he won't!!! Adidas will pay him $25m more on his shoe deal to be in either the LA or NY market. Knicks and Nets not an option so that leaves LA. Add in the fact that LA has his bird years that's more significant money. Add in the fact that Dwight wants to be more than just a basketball player one day, Hollywood is the perfect place for him to be and he's already expressed how much he's growing to love LA. Then last, but definitely not least....we're the Lakers. We get what we want and people don't leave us unless we want them gone :cool:

After watching Dwight make a **** show out of his situation, I'm not all too sure he's a sure fire thing to stay in LA. The only reason I think the odds are he does stay is because LA can offer him the most money. As far as CP3, he should undoubtedly stay with the Clippers.

Knicks have no cap to sign him. Sign and trades (I'm pretty sure) aren't going to be possible for the Knicks next year due to new CBA rules (if anyone knows more about this than me and can either disprove or confirm I'd appreciate).

You're correct teams over the apron can not do sign and trades next yr.

Not being pessimistic it's about looking at the situation and being logical. It would have to be really bad for Dwight to leave LA. By bad I mean miss PS and Kobe being a complete b**ch about the situation.

As I said, both players have better teams around them right now than anywhere else if they left. Neither team has to face the Heat until the finals. There is no reason for either of them to leave their current situations except maybe Dwight if the Lakers found a way to spontaneously combust.

so you think they're trading for him this year before the deadline and before he his deal expires?

there's a hole in that theory too, the fact that the Clippers WILL NOT trade him. They'll let him test FA and challenge him to walk away from the extra money they can offer with birds.

it's not logical to believe this will happen man. I admire your blind optimism though :)

You do know that players want to play for the Lakers, even if they suck, the lakers will always have stars wanting to come and be the next face of the franchise. This isn't a team like the Clippers or Miami we are talking about, it the LA Lakers. They don't need to get a bunch of good players together to make stars want to join. They just have to have Lakers on the jerseys and players will want to play for them. If the Lakers had Cap space 2 years ago, lebron would be a Laker.

The Clippers is one thing, but Miami is another. The Heat franchise is one of the most well-run franchises in the league.

I'm not convinced of that at all in regards to LeBron, just because of who he is and who he's best friends with; the latter being the biggest reason why he definitely wouldn't have been a Laker. But I wholeheartedly agree that the Lakers are a team that many stars in this league would consider. I didn't mention that in my initial post, but I'm very much aware of it.

Yeah, and Dwight requested a trade to BKN & what happened? Not everything you read or hear comes to fruition dude. Why do you think it was such a shock to almost everyone on this board that Dwight got traded to the Lakers? It was touched on for a time, but then it pretty much disappeared; never to be discussed again until it actually happened. It's why free agency is so addicting. You just never know......

You've continued to gloss over your teams' financial issues and assets or lack there of, while letting off your clear cut opinion as "fact". This is all speculation, which is pretty much what this thread is.

I am not in denial about it. I actually enjoy the team we have now. But you cant forget when he requested trades to the knicks twice. i am not saying he will come i am saying, that it is very possible.

Kobe requested being traded to the Bulls a few years ago. So does that mean he still wants it to happen?

Dwight requested to be traded to the Nets. Where is he now?

so he is not coming to our team that was last year before he even got traded or knew his future

Majority of people in the NBA believe CP3 will make a move to NY via trade. Near the end of the season knicks will terminate Amare's contract to have enough money to sign Paul.

Either way I'm happy... Clips are my 2nd fav team. However, it is plausible that if the Clips don't make the playoffs or do well in them this upcoming year, CP3 could force a trade to NY or threaten leaving as a FA. The Clips would rather take something than nothing, and a healthy STAT (given he has a bounce back year) and his 2 remaining years are easier to swallow. And don't argue that DeAndre Jordan is a legit 5... cuz he is NOT.

So, I'm guessing that James Dolan is going to hire an assassin to take down Amar'e and void that contract? Cause you guys don't have the Amnesty clause. Nobody is gonna take that contract back, knowing the Knicks intentions. Why would they allow another big three and move the "rock" that is blocking it?

It's a shame for you guys that they can't trade Amnesties. Cause there are a few teams that would likely be willing to part with theirs (for a price of course) lol

He was playing great before he got injured. Chris Paul would've guarded Westbrook and Paul is one of the best defensive guards in the league. They have one of the deepest, if not the deepest bench in the league. They have a good defensive small forward that can still score, one of the best shooters in the game in Billups and one of the best defensive centers in Jordan.

But with that said cp3 never really had any interest in being on the clippers long term.I mean if they make the wcf then that changes everything but it's not happening barring a major injury to one of the elite teams out west and why do people keep thinking he's just going to up and say i hate the clippers i want out .When he still has to play one more season with them.

I don't see Chris Paul leaving that's a young core they have, but never say never because the clippers will always be the Lakers little brother as long as they stay in L.A. so that could be a reason but still doubtful, Dwight will probably stay we can become a dynasty win a 3 peat and he can send Kobe and Nash out on a great note people don't realize that in 3 year's Kobe,pau,Nash,and artest will be off the books not to mention we still have the amnesty clause,and we will have the money to build Dwight his own team, its the perfect situation for him.

You didn't just compare the dpoy to an overpaid scrub who can't make a dam freethrow or play in the 4th quarter because he is such a liability on the offensive end:facepalm: :punish:
Who's comparing him to Chandler? I just said that he's not good at free throws and that Chandler is not good at free throws either. I like how you call Jordan an overpaid scrub when that title was given to Chandler not so long ago also.

Did you know that the Hornets traded him WITH his permission? They didn't want to trade him to a team he didn't want to. I lol'd at the part of Stern being a dictator, he's a dictator because he didn't want the Hornets to be raped? They could've trade him to another team but the Clippers offered what they wanted all along, Draft picks and good young players with potential.

With that last statement you made the rockets offer was better the rockets offered a better draft pick and better players scola,martin,and dragic, plus some picks is better than Gordon and a pick especially since Gordon can't stay healthy and wanted to leave.

No, none of those players are franchise players. Scola is old, Martin is overrated and Dragic is no a franchise changer. Gordon has that potential and is younger. Remember that Gordon wanted to leave IN the offseason, so that's not a valid argument because that happened way after the trade, and about not staying healthy he's young and when he plays he's better than all the other players you just mentioned.

Dude are you ********? Looks like you began watching basketball not so long ago, because Chandler before his Mavericks/Knicks days was considered an overpaid scrub because he couldn't stay healthy. What I'm saying is that Jordan right now may seem overpaid but he can very well live that contract like Chandler did. And who said that Stern wouldn't let a trade to the Knicks in that time?

Actually no. The team that can offer him the most money is the team that owns his bird rights, which is LAC. His contract had a few years left on it, so NO could have only offered him the most money if CP3 was still on the team and his contract was up, as it will be next summer.

But what cracks me up is when Knick fans make up trades that don't include Shumpert and/or Chandler. Do you guys really think the clippers would accept Felton/Kidd and whatever other junk you guys have? At that point they would just let Chris Paul walk and spend the extra cash elsewhere.

If your numbers are even right, he is turning down 25 million guaranteed dollars. If he signed for 4 years, and it expires in 2017, he is not guaranteed to make any money the following season or sign any contract elsewhere for near that amount. He'll be 32 at that point. He could get injured, his level of play could severely diminish, in which he'd would have left 25 million dollars on the table.

But keep posting in bold, facepalming everybody, even though you are the one looking like a fool.

OK, then I will point out that is the complete opposite of the truth. He would be turning down $25 million to sign with another team. How is 5 years $100 Million not $25 more million than 4 years and $75 million? You think CP3 gets another $20 million contact in 5 years? I also think youre way off.

no you cant, sorry the knicks are not that smart and if they are then why havent they won a title in going on 40 years?

the lakers are so far ahead of the knicks in every aspect of actual basketball operations and success its not even funny, how often do you see a team acquire a star player like carmelo and proceed to get worse?

i understand its hard to be a knicks fan and consistantly hear rumors of big time stars then supposedly want to come to your team, and then when it finally does happen (carmelo) the team still sucks.

I would start off by saying... All New York Knicks/Jets fans can eat crow; ok.

I agree with you here, if Cp3 doesn't have a good year with the Clippers he might walk away as a free agent; by me saying this, the league knows that too.

NBA = Entertainment will happen this year for the Clippers... They will be in the WCF or the Finals this year. The league knows if Cp3 walks, Griffin can't do it on his own, at this stage of his career. The Clippers being contenders is very good for the NBA, WHY you ask... Cash Cow Griffin:D

This half white half black guy is on every kid poster all through middle america...

So if stern doesn't step in and make the refs do what they do, Cp3 walks and he goes to a team that gives him an above average chance of winning a ring or two.

Howard:

Howard stays with the Lakers or forces his way to the Nets... Laker fans might be hyping up Lopez soon :laugh2: lol

And the wild card is Dallas getting both Cp3 and Howard, with Dirk having one last chance to get another RING vs the HEAT:D

LA is a big market, and outside of Dallas, no teams with space next year come close to offering what LA gives them.

Also, the Lakers have nobody outside of Nash under roster two years from now, which also happens to be a massive free agent year. Dwight gets to be the face of the Lakers and bring along anybody he really wants in 2014 and beyond.

If LAL wins a title in the next two years, then I can definitely see Kobe and Pau coming back for a discount ( like KG this past summer).

2014 would only be a big year if LeBron, Melo, Wade, Bosh, Gay, Amar'e all opted out and decided to test free agency. The odds of that happening are ridiculously low. Aside from that the PGs suck in 2014 class. Granger is solid. Thats about it. Unless he's hyped to play with Granger and Channing Frye in 2014 I dont see what he'd be all excited about.

I'm not too sure about Dwight, but if I was Paul I'd stay in LA. The Clippers are on the right track in terms of what they're doing toward their future.
I think they both re-sign. The Clippers have a good young core. Dwight is young enough to compete with this current Lakers squad for championship the next few years and be the main building block for the Lakers post Kobe. Dwight would be the main man on the Lakers and they will do whatever it takes to win championships around him.

It is what they both always wanted being the man on a good team in a big market. We know the Lakers are committed to winning and I think the Clippers are going for it now too.

All Knicks have are trash outside of Melo when it comes to offering something in a blockbuster trade. They can't trade for him. Period. They can't sign him as a FA even if they terminate (not sure if they can) Amare's god awful contract ($52 million without Amare's contract).

i'm glad you can change links on your sig cuz it seems its the most knowledgeable thing you can say and do in this forum. :clap:

LOL so why do you think Amare will be bought out by the end of this season? Do you really think this will happen... like seriously?

It's already been mentioned elsewhere, but a darkhorse for CP3's services in 2014 might be the Hawks. ATL is not in salary cap hell as the Knicks are in. I believe he's from Hotlanta, and while Teague is OK, he's not going to get it done with that roster. Josh Smith and Al Horford (when healthy) are a pretty good core.

Should CP3 hit free agency, the one team I see that can entice him away from the Clippers are the 76ers.

If this is true, then Cp3 should ask the Clippers to trade him now, so they get some value back for him.

I think they will both stay, but if they do leave, I see them going to Dallas. I'm sorry to all the Knicks fans out there, but I just don't see CP3 playing in a Knicks uni next season.

Any realalistic NYK fan gave up on the CP3 dream a long time ago

Money-wise, can ATL do it? And re-sign J. Smith?

I hate to say it, but I think that should be standard operating procedure for all teams. Find out if your player wants to stay. If not, if he balks at an extension, get the ball rolling on a trade. Don't wait, unless you're absolutely sure that the team that you've built around him is championship caliber.

I read somewhere that Atlanta only has a signed payroll of about $15M in 2013/14, so yeah, depending on what they offer Smith they should be able to make some moves. That said, they'll probably have to retool in a major way, so ATL management better look to get an early jump on transactions.

Majority of people in the NBA believe CP3 will make a move to NY via trade. Near the end of the season knicks will terminate Amare's contract to have enough money to sign Paul.

Wow.

This deserves no response.

No he actually thinks they are just going to cut him and remove him from the payroll, thus creating enough cap space to sign CP3. The best part is I don't think the Knicks would have the cap space even then! This guy is a sig quote waiting to happen!!

The only reason both players haven't signed an extension is because they can sign a new contract next season with the same team and make way more money. Im not sure exact numbers but I think around 30 mil more to stay with the same team, part of the new cba as incentive for players to stay with their teams.

No way those guys leave that kind of cash on the table to leave LA. They're on great teams in one of the best markets where they can make the most money.

I would start off by saying... All New York Knicks/Jets fans can eat crow; ok.

I agree with you here, if Cp3 doesn't have a good year with the Clippers he might walk away as a free agent; by me saying this, the league knows that too.

NBA = Entertainment will happen this year for the Clippers... They will be in the WCF or the Finals this year. The league knows if Cp3 walks, Griffin can't do it on his own, at this stage of his career. The Clippers being contenders is very good for the NBA, WHY you ask... Cash Cow Griffin:D

This half white half black guy is on every kid poster all through middle america...

So if stern doesn't step in and make the refs do what they do, Cp3 walks and he goes to a team that gives him an above average chance of winning a ring or two.

Howard:

Howard stays with the Lakers or forces his way to the Nets... Laker fans might be hyping up Lopez soon :laugh2: lol

And the wild card is Dallas getting both Cp3 and Howard, with Dirk having one last chance to get another RING vs the HEAT:D

OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M ABOUT TO SAY THIS BUT I'M ACTUALLY AGREEING WITH A HEAT FAN :speechless:

How is it a no brainer when one team is OLD and the other has the worst owner in pro sports? And the $$ difference is $5 Mill which is nothing to these guys.
