Default Clippers acquire Rasual Butler from the Hornets

Clippers receive: Rasual Butler
Horents receive: Future second rounder

Who's gonna start at the 2 for the Hornets? Mo Pete? Devin Brown? Marcus Thornton?

Apparently saves the the Hornets ~$8 million after luxury tax.

Hey I just realized something. Does that mean Clippers used up all their available cap space? That must mean they aren't going after Ramon Sessions.

Am I wrong?


WOO HOO!!!! Helps Knicks with leverage against Sessions......

This seems like a loss.

I only base my opinion on how he play against Denver (some more games) and stats. He shoots a high % from 3 and is tall.

Was that sarcastic or serious? Those aren't very good for a guy averaging 31 MPG.

They just saved $8 million and got a 2nd round pick. That's a win......

Okafor trade was only to fool people make them believe that they wanna be competitive and get better... now I'm sure they don't care.

Clippers will finish ahead of Hornets this year
