yeah, but if you give away an unprotected pick to trade up for a shooting guard like eric gordon when you already have guys on the team who have earned plenty of touches, to me that just makes too little sense for even the clippers to do. it would be fine to take him at 7, but to trade up for him when you've already got some studs on the team? doesnt make ANY sense.

i think the espn people are simply just speculating based on who they think it makes sense for the clippers to take, not being all that familiar with the team. its not like elgin baylor would have told them who he's taking when he made the trade.

i just think the pick HAS to be westbrook. i will be STUNNED if it isnt

Gordon doesn't fall past #5. The Grizz will take him if he's available.

Just reported on ESPN that this deal is off.

Clips said that Seattle wanted too much.

i don't understand who they're jockying for... jerryd bayless is my guess, he's very underrated and could make a rudy gay-type impact immediately, but that's not a way to show confidence for shaun livingston coming back from that nightmare injury

I´ve had Seattle in the ISH mock draft and said they should trade their pick for a future first. Since we couldn´t trade picks, and Bayless was already gone, I´ve picked Westbrook at 4, although he was projected at 15-20 at that time. Pick and statement were considered borderline insane two weeks ago. Hmm, I guess they are still borderline insane, but at least I´m not alone in this madness

If Minny doesn´t take Mayo, I think the Clippers will do another trade and send the #4 + extra to Miami for the #2.

Say it once and YOU try taking your own advice which is STFU.

"He wont be there"
"He wont be there"
"He wont be there"

*10mins pass*

"He wont be there"

Idiot kids man.


So now i cant repeat my self.

Ok ISH police.Only reason i repeat my self is because when new people first post i want to make my point so stop acting like you set rules here.

You asked why would they move up to 7 to take him and i answered you and so did the other person.
