one relatively small move could be to make a trade with NOLA to get Redick back. Don't know what they'd want- but I'd trade Beverley for Redick if they'd take him

Clippers S&T Marcus Morris to the 76ers for Al Horford, Thybulle and a future protected 1st.

Clippers trade Thybulle,76ers future protected 1st to Indiana for Victor Oladipo's expiring

Does this work?

A sign and traded player can only be traded for 1 other person not for a package like that

Also how much do you think Morris is gonna get paid have you seen horfords contract?

They can’t just “take on salary” when over the cap. They have to match salary. They can take on 15% more (I think). They have the MLE, but the also have Harrell as a RFA. I’m not sure wtf this means because it doesn’t really make sense.

https://www.basketball-reference.com/contracts/LAC.html

And if it was a huge contract like Westbrook, they would have to send no less than five players. Ain’t happening.

They can’t be naive enough to think you can get better players back simply because they are on longer deals...that if I just signed say FVV to 4 years tomorrow, that deal is worth less because it’s longer than an equal guy on a two year deal? Wtf.

Are there any timebounds to trading futures? Since they own their picks beyond 2028, maybe they could start pillaging those as well.

Clippers can give up their 2029, 2031 FRP and Shamet and Zubac. lmao.

You cannot trade more than 7 years out per nba trade league rules last time I checked.

Clippers have no trade worthy assets unless pandemic p (who doesn't have a high value after this gong show) and nephew are on the block to do a significant change. Other GMs have to rob clippers as much as possible. They have no draft picks as incentives. Only Philly and NY can be robbed by clippers because of their front office incompetence.

The other issue with trading for Paul is OKC is in no hurry to make the Clippers better. The other options are extremely limited. Klove is going to be moved at some point.

Who else really? You have to find a flawed player who has a massive deal can still play but will have very little interest there are only so many type of those guys out there and then you have to find a team that thinks your players are either going to help them more or they can flip them as part of a rebuild.

Maybe they can throw in their coach to make a deal. He once was worth a 1st round pick.

Sure, upgrade it by removing Pat "Im Gonna Hurt You Sucka!" Beverly and Paul "Im in the driver's seat!" George.
Trust the Process. Enjoy the Progress.

Docs fired and Paul back to the clips would be championship territory. They need someone who can get the offense moving and push the tempo. No more iso ball.

I know his contract is next to impossible for the Clips to trade for...


But what kind of players/contracts can the clips take on?



Last July, this was considered the deepest roster in the NBA and there was a “real gap between the Clippers and Lakers.”

No roster is perfect—if Kawhi and/or George do something in these last three games, they win and get s fresh start vs. the Lakers. They have stretch bigs, a big who can defend, wing defenders, shot crestors, bench creators.

https://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=27686555

Replace Kawhi with LeBron and LeBron tears up the NBA with that roster.

Ironically Lowry is their only hope since they were partners in crime. They should offer Beverly, Williams, Shamet, and filler.

Beverly is a PG? Did we even see him run the offense once?

I don't think they have a PG. Huge problem for them is running everything through the same two ISO players.

I really don't see how they can upgrade. They have eight contracts for 20/21 and decisions what to do with Morris, Harrell, Lue and Green. Even without any of these extensions they are up to $109 mil salary in era of upcoming significant cap reduction. LOL - they deserve all what's coming to them (not that I am worried ;) ).
