Problem is there's no guarantee Paul resigns with them.. that's why both the Clippers and Warriors are reluctant to give up Gordon and Curry

actually there were many reports indicating that Paul would sign an extension if he was traded to the Clippers

Clips need to man up, offer Gordon + Minny pick, get Paul.

Period.

Paul and Butler trying to win now. F*ck the pick when you getting the best PG in the league, in his prime. Clips fan need to think BIGGER and not just playoff contention.

LOl, if the Mavs are willing and able to pull off S&T deals for Butler and Chandler, they´d end up with Billups/Kaman/Rudy/Turiaf for Barea/Butler/Chandler and retain all capspace for a 2012 run on Deron or Dwight. That would be hilarious, but I think Cuban is not willing to take on the big contracts even expiring.

Drafted as a 4, trying to convert to a 3. Similar build and skill set as Luol Deng. Lacks confidence, weak mentally, tends to play horribly when he has none and plays fantastically when he does.

Streaky shooter. Shot something like .500 from the 3 point line early in the season, but getting moved to the bench destroyed his confidence. Large wingspan, potential to be an elite defender.

Horrible handle on the ball, turnover prone, but is also great at stealing and can defend both 3's and 4's. He was matched up against LeBron and Melo in several games and both had a hard time scoring on him.

Still young, needs to improve his catch-and-shoot game, but he has ridiculous potential. Biggest sport cliche: has all the tools, just needs the toolbox.

Exactly. You guys don't realize how good Eric Gordon can be. He can be that Brandon Roy type second tier superstar SG. Not quite Wade/Kobe but definitely elite all around player is in the cards if he works hard and tightens up ballhandling/post game.

8 million a year for a guy on the wrong side of 30 coming of an achilles tendon tear. That is a huge risk imho.
