DJ hires an agent. He probably knows he's being traded.

Yep this could be a prelude of a DeAndre Jordan trade to come for sure. Now teams more easily inquire via the agent of his interest in them instead of needing to get the word directly from him, which would be dicey and I'm not sure if it'd be allowed either under the NBA rules.

Maybe not. It's hard to sign a contract anywhere with your thumb up your a*s or even shake hands. Hell you can't even sit down at the negotiating table without problems. Maybe somebody convinced him to pull it out.

The article mentions that Doc is safe for at least this season, well looks like the clippers don't care about the season. I guess this season is going to be like all those years we had before.

I really thought this new ownership was different and hardcore. I really thought this organization would like the spurs where we'd be in the playoffs contending for the next 10 to 15 years. Guess not.

I wouldn't be surprised if they traded austin and Deandre and doc quit at the end of the year. If we get a high draft pick and he quits... worth it

I'd be very surprised if Doc walked away from $10 million dollars by quitting

They should fire him right after the february trade deadline or after the clippers make their last trade for the season....the clippers would have to pay him the 10 mil for next year and what is left of this season. But the important part is, if the clippers make the playoffs, the new coach and the team will be able to bond and we will be able to evaluate all the guys. And only do this if they have a shot of the playoffs. As for the DJ trade...I would like a pic and Henson, and an expiring contract. Might have to be a 3 team deal. But we need a center and a pic.. And I like Henson.

Prediction: The Clips will not be able to sign the next coach in February as he will still be coaching in the NCAA tourney at that time.

Well Paul and DJ talk everyday, so I guess that adds to the DJ wants to go to Houston rumors. Those two seemed to have a different relationship after DJ almost left, a lot of mutual respect, but I guess friends too. I guess they did do all those commercials together and stuff too, forgot about that.

Quote:
"Me and his relationship goes far beyond basketball," Paul explained. "We've been like that for a while, yeah. Everybody (can) write whatever they want to write, man. I know everybody makes a story, you know what I mean?"

Although, I would hate if DJ left the Clippers from a professional standpoint he should leave. The nucleus of our starting five has left. Don't really know the direction the Clippers are going, full or partial rebuild? It will probably take a couple of seasons before Clippers can get to finals. If I were he, I'd be looking for a contender like Cavs or Washington. I think the Bucks would have a dynamic front court if DJ signed there, but contention, IDK!

Agent 0. Xmas is coming. Do you still believe in Santa Claus?. CP wants DJ to come to win games. The rest is fluff. DJ is crazy not to play with Hardin.

Well DJ really would have no say until next season, and I'm pretty sure the Rockets can't afford him, and they have Capela, but I'm just trying to fake call out Paul for trying to grab half the Clippers starting lineup from last season with him to Houston (got Luc, didn't get Redick because of Philly money). If he wanted to leave so bad, why does he want all the players from the team then? (I know why, I'm just being rhetorical)

He didn't try to recruit Austin though Wink. Austin mentioned earlier in the season that he and Paul haven't kept in touch.

DJ would probably prefer to return to Texas. Eric Gordon + Clint Capela + Fillers for Jordan?

Too much for Dj. Eric Gordon is too valuable to what they do. This year he is playing like a baby harden.

Yep most likely. Too bad the Clippers didn't insist on getting him in the CP3 trade. I think the presence of Austin Rivers may have had something to do with that.

We need to make a move with Jordan before he gets hurt. Players going down rapidly and a injury to Dj will be a disaster.

I agree they are playing with fire right now. We should just trade him for Henson and Middleton and call it a day

DJ's not going to get hurt, he's missed like 2 or 3 games with pneumonia in the last 7 years or so. That's one of DJ's biggest assets, he's the Ironman of the league.

EJ has slowed down a lot, his early hot streak is making people think he's still playing like that, but he's been shooting 36/20 over his last 8 games and is not down to 40/31 for the season. Maybe he picks it back up for them, who knows, but he's also a huge health scare, as of now, last season was still an outlier.

"if you can get him, go get him" -m Jackson

also reminded us how when he was the coach at GS, that they offered him a contract

Yea I actually watch Houston games. He had been i a little slump but not uncommon in Dantoni's offense where he is shooting 10 3's a game.

He is still a big part of their offense and I don't anticipate him shooting that bad the rest of the season.

We should go after Tony Bennett, younger defensive minded coach with a nice motion offense. He also has extracted good results with limited talent

Yea, they need him for bench scoring, and the three man rotation at PG/SG of Paul/Harden/Gordon doesn't work so well without him. Certainly a much more fun team to watch than we are this season Sad. I was actually excited Clippers vs Rockets before the season started, not so much now.

Going back to david asking why we didn't ask for him, we weren't really in a high leverage position, there were salary issues in play if they were to add Gordon to the trade, and the deal was on a time crunch. Houston most likely wouldn't have given him up. It would be funny if it happened though as it would be the second time EJ was traded for Paul.

Was hoping there was a 3 team trade to bring Okafor here.

Nets and Philly trade was kinda good for us. Okafor was a possibility for them but now that's done , hood for us. Again we need to move Deandre before something freakish happens.

You think Okafor is going to win them more games? Maybe he's drastically improved, but before he showed himself as a poor defensive C who is also inefficient on offense, turns it over too much, doesn't pass, and is also a bad rebounder. That doesn't really win you games. Sixers were 6-47 during his 18/7. They didn't have good players, but 6-47 is about as bad as it gets, and there's a reason he was traded for so little.

I do hope he can commit to defense and rebounding and be less selfish on offense so that he isn't just a black hole. Hopefully, maturity helps him.

I didn't say they were going to the finals, was saying the pick could lose some value, they only 4 games out of the 8th seed and way injury taking place anything can happen.

I didn't say you said they would go to the finals, there was no hyperbole in my post. I'm saying that Okafor has been a losing player so far, and based on that unless he's improved a lot, he'll either keep them at the same level or he will make them worse if he is playing big minutes. I don't think Brooklyn is worried about him making them worse if it develops him into a better player in the future. Brooklyn though is playing the 3rd fastest pace in the league and 8th in 3PA, they are playing a certain way that doesn't work with what Okafor does, so we'll see how it works. If you can get talent for little, you do it though.

Thompson and a first pick sounds good to me for DJ but i would like to trade for younger prospects. On a side note i would love to see Marc Jackson be the next head coach. He was the one that made the pieces work in golden State before anyone knew how good they can be.

You ever looked into the reasons Jackson was fired? Go look into that

Yeah mark Jackson sounds good on the very surface level but scary when you look into the details.

Tony Bennett for the win! We could actually start playing team defense and run a legit motion offense!

I like Mark Jackson as well for this team at this particular moment. So he made mistakes while at GS, "ye without sin cast the first stone." So he took his team to church on occasion, is that a sin? Does that mean he should never coach again, is there redemption? Mark Jackson is a marksman at shooting 3's, he's edgy and has allot to prove as a result of him being fired. Mark Jackson is gansta? Didn't you see him, I think it was 2013-14 playoffs, he had on black suit, shirt and white tie. Personally, I think Brian may be the next coach of Clippers just based on his commentary.

Hard pass on Mark Jackson. If we don't like the ISO ball with Doc I don't see how going to Mark Jackson (iso is his offense) is going to help anything.

Defensively he seems like a good coach, but so did Doc.

I had a flash. What DJ is lacking is offense. If he could score in the post we may not even be talking about letting him go. Montrez doesn't have a body type much different than DJ and Montrez can finish, DJ has made some moves that are worthy of Frankenstein. He once torched Duncan. He usually gets the ball to the hoop but is a foot short.This is crazy, I think it's in his head. His footwork ain't that bad. He seems to panic when he releases the ball. I think the problem is that he hasn't put in the time in the off season.Rebounding is the only skill he's worked on and hard work is keeping him from being a top tier center. Does it mean we should keep him? Probably not but what a waste of talent.

I agree, I yell at DJ through the TV every time he touches the ball to SLOW DOWN. He seems like he gets so excited and goes into turbo mode. I remember with VDN we would throw it down to DJ the first play of every game and some of his moves were very impressive. Hard to believe there's been no growth since then.

This is DJ's TENTH season in the league. You can't teach an old dog new tricks. He ain't magically gaining an offensive game after ten seasons. He is what he is, and while I love DJ, the fact that he is limited, and he can leave this summer, makes it an absolute necessity to move him by the deadline. I do like the idea of the Brooklyn pick A LOT. Hopefully the FO can get something done.

People including me said he couldn't shoot FT's As far as post moves everything is perfect except that he misses by a few inches.It will take only a small adjustment in maecanicc. Maybe he A lot of players gain new skills Jason Kidd became a deadly 3 pt shooter late in his career.

Jordan won't be moved until after the December 15 when players who signed as free agents can be dealt
