Why would the Clippers want to trade Maggette? I never understood that. What do you want back in return? A better starting SF? Draft picks? Young cheap players? Eh

Cassell not asking for a long deal anyway so I would assume they do. I dont see many big deals on that team. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I don't really recall anyone talking about trading Maggette in this thread, but I do agree that there is no reason to trade Maggette. He's a really good player with a small contract for his caliber. It would have been a step backwards if the Clippers ended up trading him for someone like Foye, Gay, Roy, etc.

I just hope the Clippers end up with Sam Cassell. The Clipper should have enough money to keep Cassell. They offered him a 2 year deal worth 12 million. The Clippers should afford that.

It will be interesting to see how much the tight wallet Sterling will end up spending over all once he takes care of Kaman, Livingston and Quinton Ross in the future. So much for Donald Sterling being the cheapest owner in history.

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.


It doesnt say ANYWHERE that he used to play with the clippers. It says he shuns the suns for a chance to stay home in LA, by signing with the clips.

READ IT RIGHT!!!! THEN YOU CAN MAKE STATEMENTS

Now he probably does have a home in LA. Who makes over a million a year and DOESN'T live in Las Angeles.

And as a matter of fact, fatboy, the article is from a pheonix newspaper.

That is because the headline of the article in the link has since been edited.

It originally said "Thomas shuns Suns to stay with the Clippers".

When I originally quoted that, I copied it from the the article.

I did read it correctly, for your information. They (the paper) made an error.

Thanks for trying though.

Well, this pretty much sucks for the Suns, though I kind of had the feeling that T2 would take a higher contract elsewhere, so I can't say that I'm really upset about him signing with the Clips.

What will the Suns do now? Who is even out there that's worth anything to help their bench? It looks like Eddie House is going to bail, most likely to Miami from what I have heard, so as of now, the team stands as:

Diaw/Thomas
Amare/Burke
Marion/Jones
Bell/Barbosa
Nash/????

Personally, they should sign Cassell, not Vlad Rad, pg is their pressing need, next to a legit power player, and Cassell is SICK!! He'd work good with Kobe, and I'm sure he could run the triangle.

Thats just great work

And to think, we passed up on the draft all together to resign that dude and give Diaw an extension. WoW.

I am starting to have a BAD feeling about my Suns next year.....

Thumbs up LA Times confirms Timmy T to sign with Clips

Lakers, Clippers Make Moves
Radmanovic signs with Lakers; Cassell on the way out as Clippers sign Suns' Thomas
By Mike Bresnahan and Jason Reid, Times Staff Writer
9:04 PM PDT, July 1, 2006

In a day filled with innumerable twists, the local basketball landscape shifted, sighed and eventually settled as Vladimir Radmanovic left the Clippers for the Lakers, Tim Thomas left Phoenix for the Clippers, and Sam Cassell stayed where he was last season as a Clipper.

The Lakers moved quickly on the first day of free agency by snatching away a piece from their cross-town rival and agreeing to terms Saturday with Radmanovic, a three-point shooting forward who has made a career of stretching defenses.

ADVERTISEMENT
The Clippers reacted swiftly after Radmanovic and Cassell apparently reneged on agreements to stay with them, then reaching terms with the sharp-shooting Thomas and making a push for free-agent guard Bobby Jackson as a back-up plan in case Cassell left.

But Cassell, the 36-year-old point guard and undisputed on-court general of the Clippers last season, late Saturday agreed to a two-year, $13-million contract, keeping intact a Clippers nucleus that lasted longer than the Lakers in this year's playoffs.

Free agents cannot officially sign contracts until July 12.

Throughout the day, Cassell was weighing three options: a two-year, $13-million offer from Atlanta, a two-year, $11-million offer from the Clippers and a three-year, $12-million offer from Denver. After learning Atlanta was the highest bidder, Clippers Coach Mike Dunleavy told Cassell to give him a number to get the deal done, sources said.

Dunleavy received approval from Clippers owner Donald T. Sterling to increase the offer, and Cassell agreed to remain with the team he helped lead to new heights last season.
