We don’t need Bradley Beal I guess!!

How many firsts do you guys think? I’d think 3, but the headline suggests possibly more? I mean we just got one the other day simply for taking on an expiring contract.

BIGGEST day in Clipper history bar none!!!!

Wow!! What a deal! I've been awake for days waiting on Leonard to decide. Glad it was the Clippers and not the other guys! Tragic Johnson bites a big one on this, he didn't get either of them!! :lol:

So it’s 5 picks, wow! But we essentially traded for both PG and Kawhi, which makes it an absolute no brainer.

People are finally remembering that George grew up a Clippers fan? Last year all we heard was that he was a Lakers fan as a kid. I wondered when the story changed. This is the first time we've had a Clippers fan who grew up to play for us.

But... SGA and all those picks? I'm a little nervous that we're turning into the Lakers

GREAT NEWS CLIPPER FANS! Clips aint done dealing yet.

http://www.shamsports.com/capulator?id=18467891565d203fea1a4c9805242693

Clippers still have 14mil in cap space. How?

Renounce all FAs and TPEs, except PatBev, MacGruder, Zubac, and Motley. Their cap holds are smaller than what they will eventually receive. Sign FRP Kabengele.

Max 30% Kawhi

14m leftover

Fill that up. Get room exception 4.8m, then extend PatBev, MacGruder, and Zubac to go over the cap.

THEN its Gallo + SEGA + mega FRP for PG13, that's legal due to the 125% salary within each other rule.

C - Zubac, Kabengele
PF- PG13, Harrell
SF- Kawhi, MacGruder
SG- Shamet, Lou Will, JRobinson (Shamet will get some PG mins since he played that position in College)
PG- PatBev, ???

14mil cap space
4.8m room exception

Jeebus tapping dancing crap, this team is gonna be epically deep. I'd prolly go re-sign JaMychal Green to backup SF/PF and let Kawhi and PG13 load manage properly. Delon Wright or Jeremy Lin to be backup PG with the remaining cap, and sign the best Room Exception C remaining.

The Logo is a **** magician.

Edit: Sorry guys for the false alarm in great news. I forgot to add Moe Harkless. Instead of 14mil in cap space it's down to 3mil. Bsically enough to go grab Jeremy Lin, Delon Wright is def priced out.

Record-Breaking... Sign-And-Trade!?

Look at that second tweet. Essentially trading Paul George and Kawhi Leonard to the Clippers. If Stein is saying it like that, that means this is a sign-and-trade, Clippers will be hard capped, and a few other people might go. Can somebody clear this up?
