Yeah, I'm glad I don't buy into every rumor I see on the Internet. Today's supposedly the big day and there's been no news on this.

Of course, now that I've posted this, Woj will promptly announce Iggy to the Clippers and make me look like a fool.

Still holding out hope. Could just be the date is off a bit.

We already know if this front office was up to something, no one would know until the deal is officially announced. We're not like the LA Leakers across the hall

honestly i'd just caution against people having really high expectations not just to trade for him, but for how good he currently is.

the team has a lot of pieces that already play his position and he's been declining for a while. if i had to make an analogy, we should be very concerned we're gonna get the clippers version of paul pierce, not the washington wizards version.

imo it'd be best not to make a big deal about him. only thing that should be a problem is if the team decides to expend whatever scant, remaining assets we have to get him, which is too risky, i think.

ClipCast Trying to Will Iggy Trade to Happen 

Post#48 » by Ranma » Wed Sep 4, 2019 4:30 am

Dudes are doubling down on their fake news by even saying Joe Johnson is not working out for the Clippers despite a more credible source saying otherwise.

Lol I was just about to mention RDambition and Arye Abhraham, but I see ClipsFanSince98 already beat me in his tweet, lol. Who was that KTLA reporter who stuck to his guns about the Kawhi signing? I wonder if he has said anything.

Edit: It was David Pingalore, and he hasn't tweeted anything about it.

same. I was about to say we got another internet insider on our hands. I'm surprised Chris Broussard hasn't plagiarized off him yet. :lol:

Eh... use that Paul Pierce comparison in the Joe Johnson thread (<--age 38). Not here.

Let's be clear, the move for Iguodala would be for Playoffs purposes.
Iguodala is 35 years old, will be 36 by the 2020 Playoffs.

Paul Pierce, age 36 -- Nets 2014 Playoffs:
13.7 pts, 4.5 reb, 2.0 ast, 1.2 stl, 0.3 blk (.539 eFG%) -- 12 gms
30.7 mins, -2 NetRating, 21.6 usage, 0.7 WinShare (2nd on team)

Paul Pierce, age 37 -- Wizards 2015 Playoffs:
14.6 pts, 4.2 reb, 0.9 ast, 0.6 stl, 0.7 blk (.652 eFG%) -- 10 gms
29.8 mins, +22 NetRating, 17.5 usage, 1.2 WinShare (2nd' on team)

---------------------------------------------------------------

2019 Playoffs comparison: Iguodala vs Harkless

9.8 pts, 4.3 reb, 4.0 ast, 1.1 stl, 1.1 blk (.578 eFG%) -- 21 gms, Warriors
30.0 mins, +8 NetRating, 14.0 usage, 1.5 WinShare (4th' on team)

8.4 pts, 4.9 reb, 1.4 ast, 1.1 stl, 1.0 blk (.509 eFG%) -- 16 gms, T'Blazers
24.3 mins, +2 NetRating, 15.9 usage, 0.8 WinShare (5th on team)

I'm good with Harkless, he'll provide good minutes at SF and PF. But whatever the case, when considering Iguodala, lets have proper perspective. Iguodala's true value is that certain intangible quality that he has, being the difference in that pivotal moment.

What/who the hell are RDambition and Arye Abhraham?
As far as I can tell, they're just guys on twitter. How did anything they say gain any traction/any of your serious attention? There are thousands of twitterer who say this and that... why would you or anyone even listen to either of those two, in particular?

Chris Wylde from ClipCast has covered/followed the Clippers for a long time. He's no "journalist" per se, but he's at least a guy who has relationships within the Clippers organization, and with Clippers players themselves.

He has equity in his Clipperdom. The way you guys are coming down on the guy is, frankly, off-putting. Chris Wylde is "one of us"... who happens to be in close with the Clips... and he's reporting something that he believes is true. What's with the vitriol, mockery?

After the Kawhi debacle, skepticism is warranted toward most everybody boasting of inside info--even some professionals. As it turned out, the Channel 5 guy did turn out to be right, but most often, fringe sources are wrong.

Wylde was already wrong about the date, and either he or this guy [a hithertofore reliable source]

is wrong about Johnson. In the least, Wylde misunderstood the info/buzz he heard. Pros can't afford to.

If the Clips have an offer on the table, it's almost certainly Harkless and Jerome because few other salary numbers work. The Grizz are probably asking for picks on top, but our cupboard is bare, even of second-rounders.

Hold on... putting the "reporting" aside, the tweets aside...

Are you saying that you want the Clippers to add Joe Johnson?!

"Iso Joe"-... "Oh so (old) Joe"

Oh-so old Joe has a negative NetRating for this career... negative NetRating for his All-Star years... negative NetRating in the Playoffs (worse)...

Have any of these Iggy rumor perpetrators ever put forth any details of the mechanism of getting Iggy?

Straight Trade like this?
http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=y2wj6x9y

Is it even "legal" to incentivize Memphis to buyout-and-waive Iggy by say, separately trading them: the rights to a Euro, cash, 2nd round pick, etc

Best case scenario it’s a three team trade. We only send Robinson or some 2nds and a third team sends them some small assets to take a longer contract then the team buys out Iggy. Minnesota comes to mind if they want to get rid of Dieng
