His last big season was before the knee surgery. Hope he has plenty in the tank/stays healthy this season, for the Clippers sake.

Eh - not so sure.

We needed someone who plays defense, spreads the floor and passes.

Does Caron do any of those things?

At least money/time is reasonable for his impact.

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.


Hmm... Clippers have 2 intriguing prospects in bledsoe and him. Let alone minny pick.... Repped.

Not really. Will be first time Clippers have ever been over cap in general really. It's good to see them commit to winning. As long as he's healthy he's a guaranteed 14-15 ppg, 5 rpg guy to go with a couple assists. He's the PERFECT 3rd option for this team. You're in good shape when other recent all stars like Kaman+Mo Williams are your 4th and 5th scoring options.

Caron shot what 43 percent from deep last year before injury? He plays very solid, physical D. He was also a 5 apg player a few years ago. At the end of the day beggars can't be choosers my brother. We need to realize just how bad Gomes was. When you double the scoring from a position.... the wins pile on. Even if Butler isn't THE most ideal player... his impact will be immediate.

Not saying he doesn't make us better.

He does.

Not saying he isn't a good player.

He is.

Just not really a great fit... I agree though, our options were fairly limited at this point with Prince off the market.

I'd rather have snagged RJ for less but whatevs... it's better than having Gomes starting.

Not mad at signing, esp since its a shorter contract and not much of an overpayment but it's not a dream signing by any stretch.

Dont even try to criticize this signing people. The clippers are starting to collect a good amount of talent. AND they have good prospects to boot. Future is looking up indeed. And i couldn't be happier the less successful teams (historically)are starting to get a chance to be good. And hopefully we will have championships in franchises that have never had one or many before. Watch out west, the clippers might be the next big thing.

. ESPN article said Butler chose Clippers because he's a huge fan of the young team and Blake Griffin. He feels they can win a championship in the next few years. Guess I'm not the only "delusional" one?

How can Eric Gordon be as good as B. Roy?

B. Roy could control the game with his passing and ball handling.

Gordon hasn't shown any of that ability.

Gordon is a great scorer who plays D... very nice player to have but pre-injury Brandon Roy was someone who could make other players better.
