Identical stats to Matt Barnes. More athletic and upside than Barnes. 39 percent on catch and shoot 3s, 47 percent on catch and shoot in general. That's a key stat next to CP3/Griffin who find shooters better than pretty much anyone else. Wes' biggest weakness is when he's forced to create his own shots, which won't happen here. I'm happy with this for minimum as s 4th string wing. Chronz I'm sure you're also happy that Doc is going after young players with decent upside vs washed up old guys who used to be good like the last two years.

A bust but will miss him in LAL. Didnt ike him before but started liking him since i have to since he is part of the lakers. Will give the clippers a good 24minutes per game, will knock down the open 3 occasionally and will show a glimpse of why he was drafted so high. Maybe 2 every 10 games. Poor poor mans kawhi leonard. Was money in 2k14 and 2k15 when left wide open from 3. surely gonna miss him

Man sad to see him go. Still hasn't figured out he needs to just perfect his off the ball catch and shoot game, but he's still very solid.

At the very least will give you valiant D and open 3's. On a good night he's giving you plenty of buckets and causing turn overs and fast breaks.

Openly has talked about how much he learned from, loved playing with, and training in the summer with Kobe btw. Add him to the list.

can't believe I needed to merge threads about Wes.....

Moving past my pure annoyance that Kahn took him over Cousins, Granger, and a whole lot of other players, and he was essentially the WORST starting wing in the league for 2 years.....

If he is playing 15 mpg as your 8th man, he has some value. Decent signing.

Stephenson will actually be primarily backing up Redick at SG when Crawford is moved. Lance will play 1-3 pretty much. We NEED to play rookie Branden Dawson who's playing like a double double machine monster so far in SL. Dude looks like a 3/4 version of Eric Bledsoe. A realistic and best case scenario would be something like...

Paul/Rivers (or Wolters possibly)
Redick/Stephenson
Pierce/Johnson/Dawson
Griffin/Josh Smith/Dawson
McGee/Baby/Ryan Hollins

I'd much rather have a hole at C than SF in this day and age of the NBA. We basically traded C depth for wing depth this summer so far.

Rents your building? Actually the Lakers and Clippers are both equal tenants. Both pay rent. The point I was making is the last 3 years all I hear is hate from Lakers fans, often times cheering the Clippers failures more passionately than whatever is happening with their own team. Not on PSD really, but in other forms of media, on the street etc. It's petty, foolish and strikes me as low IQ. Lakers fans need to worry about their own team who has far bigger issues going into the future than the Clippers.

Today on LA radio you have Lakers fans calling in to boast how Clippers title window is slammed shut and the Lakers will win in the playoffs before the Clippers now blah blah. Last I checked we still had two superstars in their prime, the Lakers have Kobe who has one foot in the grave, an unproven rookie with the highest bust chance according to projections (also highest star chance tho), a bunch of random good role players who don't mesh. FOCUS ON THE LAKERS PLZ.

Well McGee posted a cryptic picture this morning with his long fingernails and said something like "The best opportunities come when you least expect" or something... I'm assuming it was a play on "Clippers" like nail clippers. 2 days ago Woj said the Clippers were "very close" to a deal with him. So he's most likely done. Josh Smith and the Clippers have mutual interest and have been talking today. Clippers have also talked with Amare+Boozer last couple days about that backup big slot. So yea, all free agents.

I think you're lost. My response was directed at Lakers fans trolling this pickup. Seriously you may not care, but listen to Lakers fans around you. They insist on kicking the Clippers literally every chance they get. I have Lakers fans that I greatly respect and they don't act like children like that. These same children bring up 16 rings, without mentioning that they were fans for 1 or 2 of them at most.

Thanks for smiles Lakers fans! In all seriousness Johnson could be an upgrade over Barnes. I can see him playing a lot of minutes at the 3 with Pierce at the 4 and Blake at the 5. As good ad DJ is the Clippers were awful at rebounding last year. Barnes and Crawford were big reasons why. I have to imagine Crawford will be moved for a warm body at C. Wes and Lance should be pretty big upgrades on D and on the boards.

Anytime a player gets signed for the vets min at 24-25 you should be getting excited and talking about 24MPG.. he's more like a 9-12 man who plays when someone's injured

I mean seriously... Derrick Williams just got 2 years 10 mil from the Knicks and he's awful, and all Wes could get is the minimum.. he's just as likely to make a 3 as he is to get lost in a rotation or caught being indecisive with the ball , he'll show flashes of potential every 6 games .. these are the guys you don't want in a rotation.. do you really want him on the floor in a playoff game?

Ridonkulous things I've seen written on PSD since FA began:

-Wes Johnson and Javale McGee would be an upgrade, at worst treading water, over Matt Barnes and Deandre Jordan

-D'Angelo Russell is an elite passer who will easily win ROY and garner MVP votes by carrying Lakers to the playoffs

-LaMarcus Aldridge isn't as good as Paul Millsap

-Derrick Williams is something other than worthless

-Damian Lillard can carry an offense

-Kevin Durant is something other than an easy top 2 player player, probably best player in the league ATM

-DJ/Dirk/Parsons frontcourt is not good enough to make the playoffs, regardless of their guards

Keep 'em coming.

Nah man, I've had both Barnes and Wes on my team. Barnes was by far the more productive, consistent and better player. Wes will give you an athletic body but just fair warning, don't expect much else. He might surprise with like a 20 point 12 reb game once a year, but if you expect him to be an upgrade over Barnes in any capacity, don't count in it. I like Wes as a nice locker room guy though. And he seems to want to do what's best for the team, he just doesn't have the skills to translate it to the court

I don't mean those people obviously. I mean the people flat out saying he's garbage, will never amount to anything, needs tampons etc. Just needless trolling over something that may work out. CP3 has made role players better time and time again. Same with Griffin. I don't see why he can't be a decent bench contributor. Nobody is saying he's a star or gonna move the needle.

I disagree, been watching him in LA the past few years and hes changed since his Minny days. He coasts but when you're an athlete like him, its easy to recognize the upgrade. Even gives us a small ball option. Hes not playing with bums anymore. He can coast as much as he wants in his current role, we actually need him to focus on the intangibles, which I know he can do at a higher level than his repacement.

Get a hint, being diehard biased doesn't make you MORE of a fan. Just less educated. Ill worry about whatever I want thank you very much. Im pretty sure nobody tries to put you in ur place anymore, we all just sorta acknowledge you for what you are.

Jobless? LOL, werent you jobless like weeks ago? Dont make this personal guy, I have a job, 2 even, just because I dont wait to get fired/quit to find leverage doesn't make me a clown. Stick to basketball, you clearly suck debating outside that realm and even then its questionable.

I booze because Im a functioning boozer and only my fellow boozers know theres something off. I honestly dont think its a big deal but I love crushing labels. I would explain in detail but again, you're a stranger so no.

Easy to get excited when the best athlete Doc ever signed and played was a retired Dauhntey Jones.

Role players can coast, thats what makes them role players. I dont expect much outside 20 minutes of athleticism and occasional 3's.

god he just infuriated me with the Wolves man, I can't get over it haha

That was the Kahn era right.. You guys had a habit of drafting quality role players in the lottery instead of risking it on potential. I like how Corey Brewer developed but you were right about his defense being overrated.

Kahn often thought he would go against the grain to try and show everyone how smart he was. I liked his ability to shed that bloated roster at first, but by his 3rd draft, you just sat there wondering how he had an NBA job. He made me not ever want a player from Cuse again. Ever.

Hahaha, this is why I could only handle one of you. You make **** so personal. You dont know me so plz drop the pretenses about how and when I booze.
I dont treat people like ****, you're just very sensitive in my book. Its good that you're proud of your accomplishments but there is nothing wrong with being out a job, I remember you having this period, however shortlived that you blamed your irrationality by dealing with looking for a new job. If you were in the same situation I was in then you should understand why we dont jump to conclusions.

For the record,

I do understand. I grew up poor. Homeless at times. I never like to resort to low, personal blows. I get everyone gets down on their luck. Quite frankly I just don't like being cornered. I've done everything over the years to be cool with you, owned up when I was wrong, never bait or troll you... yet every single time you're randomly calling me out. Sure I'm sensitive but for every time I post **** like this there are 10 other times you've taken a shot at me and I saw it without responding.

I have no issue keeping this 100 percent basketball related if you'll kindly do the same.

Thats not what I meant but K breh. Misunderstanding, I lashed out cuz you were calling out the Clipper fans on this board (me and cracka). Yes its only us 2 but thats not the cause for what ever myths you believe to be true. Trust me, they will exist regardless. Your form of debate/fanhood doesn't lend any credence to the Clips position but thats just my opinion.

Not a slight at all. Method/Cracka are great but almost never post. You post somewhat often, but most of that is general NBA stuff. I was more saying that since very little of us Clippers fans are here... other fans regular pass false information and it becomes known as "fact" here with no accountability. Like the Clippers flopping crap. Hasn't happened much since 2012, but people here still swear they do it a bunch. Or Blake can only dunk etc. With bigger fan bases on PSD that rarely happens because enough people can correct it. All I was saying.

I'm not trying to lend credence to anything. I'm trying to discuss a passion of mine on a forum without personal BS, especially with posters who want to support the same team. This is the only place where I've ever had this sort of issue with a Clippers fan and I moderate the biggest Clippers forum on the Web that has 500+ users posting almost daily.

You dont need to worry about me getting lumped in with you. I get it, I embarrass you. Other posters here are going to view you very differently regardless of what team you support.
