    Would You Make This Trade? (The Clippers Essentially Did.)

    If you were a GM, would you trade Elton Brand and Corey Maggette for Baron Davis and Marcus Camby? With all the FA movement and a recent trade, the Clippers basically did. And I believe they are worse off for it. What do you think?

    Elton beats Camby, and Baron beats Corey IMO. I wouldn't cause Brand is still the best out of all of them. It would have been awesome to see Brand and Baron duo though.

    They didn't trade Brand nor Maggette. Those guys just wanted to leave to have something different.


    But to answer the question, no I would do that deal.

    Even as a Clipper fan I wouldn't do it. We made out alright, but I don't think we would have given Baron Davis anywhere close to that big of a contract knowing Brand was going to split.

    I accidently voted yes but I was trying to say no.

    Brand is the best player in the thing IMO and Maggette is one of the best to getting to the line. Camby is weak in the defensive post and isnt really tallented offensively.

    Yes.

    The Clips look good down low with Camby/Kaman, and Diddy will keep the opposing team's best defender busy. Mobley is going to have a lot of wide-open looks this year.

    They were not going to win a championship with Mobley/Brand. They are not going to win one with Diddy/Camby - but at least the process of failing will be a lot more entertaining.

    Yes, definitely, the Clippers HAD to make this "trade".

    The Clippers had a great frontcourt in Brand/Kaman, no doubt, but NO POINT GUARD! Last year was a clear example of how ugly things could get... The Clippers gave up more OVERALL talent, but the talent excess they had allowed them this luxury. Look at it now, the Clippers have a premier point guard and a formidable, though not as deadly, front court.

    What also must be taken into account is the signing today of Azbuikie, assuming GS doesn't match this offer; the Clippers add another solid bench player that gives them depth. With Brand/Maggette, the Clippers wouldn't have the depth and no PG. If you have no general leading the show, you have no team that can win.
