Re: 2012 Offseason Thread:
One Of Q's Plans:
Mo Williams to the Brooklyn Nets for Anthony Morrow & Jordan Farmar
-Clippers turn one expiring contract into two productive players. Nets open up a roster slot and add a formidable backup to Deron or a nice insurance policy in case he bails.
Ryan Gomes to the Miami Heat for Shane Battier, James Jones, 2 2nds
-Heat cut some long term salary, while the Clippers take on an extra year of Battier but gain a veteran presence and a shooter. 2 Future 2nds can be used as trade assets, somewhat.
Sign Nick Young to a 3 year deal starting at 120% of his previous salary ($4.4 Mil)
Sign Chauncey Billups to a big 1 year deal (ala Carl Landry)
Sign Craig Smith to BAE, Aaron Gray & Reggie Evans to minimum
New Depth Chart:
PG: Chris Paul | Eric Bledsoe | Chauncey Billups*
SG; Anthony Morrow | Nick Young | Travis Leslie*
SF: Caron Butler | Shane Battier | James Jones
PF: Blake Griffin | Craig Smith | Trey Thompkins
CE: DeAndre Jordan | Aaron Gray | Reggie Evans
Denotes Inactive List
Might hinder our cap next year, slightly, but adds two solid shooters along with an exceptional veteran defender that can also knock down the open J. Craig Smith provides us with an option off the bench that can score in the post and Aaron Gray is just a big guy. Ryan Hollins, Ian Mahinmi, Kyryelo Fesenko, Jordan Hill, Hamed Haddadi, Kwame Brown could all be other options.
