Bledsoe is only one of Clips' top five trade assets hekd out of deal. But CP3 opts in for 2012-13, so Clips assured two years of Blake/CP3

Well stern got a much better deal. He is vindicated but this is still collision. Clipps were asleep at the wheel and Mitch was about to pull a fast one lol

Paul/Williams/Bledsoe
Billups/Foye?
Butler/?
Griffin/Smith
Jordan/?

Is still a very strong team. How much cap space will you have?

As of now, DC seems to be:

Paul - Mo - Bled
Billups - Foye - Leslie - Warren
Butler - Gomes
Griffin - Thompkins - Cook
Jordan -

Doesn't matter.

In the end they got the 1st Overall and we got a whiny combo guard and a benchwarmer.

I'm thinking Caron Butler plays SG if this goes through...

Gomes will still start

Default Re: Clippers and NBA-owned Hornets have agreed to Chris Paul deal in principle

clipps have got to be making more trades. they aren't going to be sticking with that point guard rotation.

i think billups goes back to denver or the heat.

Default Re: Cp3 to clips on?

Clippers gave up a LOT in this deal, but make no mistake about it. The CLippers have improved and they are a legit playoff team. This deal also probably keep Griffin around when his extension comes up. Expect both Griffin and Deandre to improve and get a ton of easy buckets with CP3. I will miss Gordon and giving up that pick is but Clippers are a complete team and now they have 2 superstars.
