Tim You Can't See Me Thomas. I hope he plays like a bum, because that's what he is.

The article also has factually wrong information in it.

How can you take any journalistic offering like that seriously?

I'm assuming it is an LA area paper. Did this jack-off who wrote the article not know that Tim Thomas has NEVER played for the Clippers before he wrote that Thomas was "staying with" the Clippers.

1. Bad contract if true.
2. Radmonovic is better and worth the money rather than Thomas.
3. They should keep Cassell.
4. Jeffries is a better fit for that team versus Thomas.

Jumping at an opportunity to stay home in Los Angeles and grab and longer term deal for more money, NBA sources confirmed Saturday that Thomas will sign with the Clippers for four years at the mid-level exception, a deal that will be worth as much as $24 million.

I just read this part, I thought they meant he actually lived in LA, my mistake but Im not going to bother reading a three page report on a Deal for Tim Thomas.

Default Tim Thomas To Sign with Clippers

Quote:
East Valley Tribune - Tim Thomas will spurn the team that gave him a second chance in order to join the L.A. Clippers.

The East Valley Tribune is reporting that Thomas will leave the Suns for Clips and sign a deal worth almost double what the Suns were willing to offer.

The deal is speculated to be for four years at the mid-level exception totalling $24 million.

So the Suns only offered him 3 million a year? Interesting.

Discuss..

Stop saying discuss. Damn. That crap died down bruh.

4yrs goes into $24mil 6 times. So he is getting roughly $6mil per? Wow. Not bad considering the crap deals in the league. Wonder how the Cassell situation plays out. He wants a 2yr deal they are only offering 1. And the relationship between Sam and Tim. Both had some choice words for another. Maybe they are old enough to put it behind them or it wasnt that big of a deal to begin with. Both said thier pieces and kept it movin, no love lost?

Clippers! Damn that franchise is finally lookin like a winner!

Sources say the Clippers offer was almost double the Suns best offer -- believed to be three years at or near $12 million, but the feeling was Thomas enjoyed his time in Phoenix so much that he would take less money to remain and make a run at an NBA championship."

did they NOT know who they were dealing with?

I don't think there is any bad blood between Thomas and Cassell. Cassell just wanted to get in his head so Thomas would miss his freethrows. Unless you are talking about a situation in Milwaukee between the 2.

IF this is true, would they still have the $ to re-sign Cassell?

Damn, I never knew Tim Thomas lived in LA. I thought he lived in New Jersey.

Anyway, T2 will likely resort to his lazy ways. Vlad-rad's signing with the Lakers is a goodie.

I definitely hope they bring back Cassell or Guillermo Diaz might actuall get playing time. Cassell >>> Diaz.

At least it's nice to know that Sterling is finally willing to spent some money. Not onlyhe overpaid Mobley last season, but he's also overpaying Tim Thomas... I think he will backup the PF position behind Brand since they arleady have a backup C in Paul Davis. Vladrad is as good as gone. If the Clippers keep Cassell, the Clipper team is stacked.

C- Chris Kaman - Paul Davis
F- Elton Brand - Tim Thomas
F- Corey Maggette - James Singleton
G- Cuttino Mobley - Quinton Ross - Daniel Ewing
G- Shaun Livingston - Sam Cassell - Guillermo Diaz.

If the Clippers lose Sam Cassell(will be a sad, sad day in Clipper Nation), I hope they atleast replace him with someone like Mike James, Marcus Banks, maybe trade for Jamaal Tinsley. And hopefully Sam Cassell's leadership and swagger will rub off on the rest of the team.

If Sam's back, this team is a title contender.

Most importantly, Donald Sterling is finally spending money. But it's not always a good thing. The Clippers are now stuck with Tim Thomas for 4 years. I just hope he doesn't start playing lazy basketball. Fortunately, the Clippers are deep at the SF position just incase Tim Thomas has those days where he says f*ck it. Maggette, Ross, and James Singleton are good players.
