Default What's next for the Clips?

This is NOT a trolling thread!!!!
It's quiet in here since things didn't go well this offseason.

I wan't to know, how do you feel about your current roster?
What direction do you think the team should go in?
Are you optimistic about next years offseason and who would you like to pick up?

It's an upgrade from last year, the bench is way better since last season with Foye & 'Sual. Bledsoe, Aminu & Rhino are good additions as well

What direction do you think the team should go in?
Build around Gordon & Griffin. Hopefully Bledsoe, Aminu & Jordan can fully develop to be the starting unit of the future
Are you optimistic about next years offseason and who would you like to pick up? Next offseason is too far away to think about since a lot can change

Everything considered this off season has gone well for the Clippers.

Just because they didnt sign a big name player doesnt mean that things went wrong DKLaker..

I prefer to see the Clipps make small progressive moves than to have given Rudy Gay or Joe Johnson some obscene amount of dollars. Its going to be all about Griffin, Gordon, and Co. anyways.

No offense.....but the plan was quite obviously to sign a star or stars, had the Clips pulled off a move like Miami did the Clippers would be the talk of the league....even if they only got Wade or Lebron, there would've been title talk instead of silence. I want to see the Staples center rocking with a real rivalry.
Joe Johnson or Rudy Gay would've been very bad expensive moves....I agree.
How about the prospect of getting Melo next year?

it wasn't the plan because they already knew there was little chance of lebron coming, they just were smart and made it an available destination just in case. there is still a good amount of cap space which is always good to have. and i think if this season is successful then melo could be a possibility, its just good that the cap room wasn't wasted. there needs to be a lot development on the young guys.

I would love to see Melo on the Clippers next year.
Do you think the Clippers will pick up Taylor Griffin who was just waived?

Clippers could have made this offseason a lot worse than they did. Actually, they are not in a bad spot.

They didn't overspend on anyone, and didn't offer long term deals to the older 'max players.'

What's next for the clippers is player/team development. The Clippers have some nice youth, Gordon and Blake in particular. And to be quite frank, they will likely have to overpay to keep them around. So unloading all their $$ wasn't all that bad a alternative for not scoring a Lebron type of FA.

I know the clippers have been re-building for some time, and have often played the let the youth develop game, but this is their best option at the moment with the given talent.

Who the Clippers pick up next season will have a lot to do with how the team grows, and which players develop. Lets be realistic, the Clippers have never been a place where players want to go, even with the LA weather. But if the Clippers show that they are moving up instead of down, it will attract someone.

I actually would like to see how Eric Gordon and Willie Warren play together. They could be the next Steve Francis Francis and Cuttino Mobley.

Given that the roster seems to be complete who would the go-to guy be in crunch time or at the buzzer? Griffin? Gordon?

It'll probably go to whoever is feeling it that day. Butler proved to be clutch last year and was the go-to-guy at times, Baron and Gordon had their fair share and I think Kaman had a couple of opportunities as well. Foye, Baron, Eric, Sual, Griffin, Rhino, Kaman are all guys that can drop 15+ on any given night, and Gomes probably can as well
