He sounds like a perfect backup big. Thank god Doc isn't the GM any more. If Wesley is worth 6-million a year, he'd have to believe Harrell is worth a max deal.

Lol it’s scary to even imagine!

So we were 29 - 16 with Milos and 13 - 24 without him. Hmmmmmmm and some guys here thinks he sucks. Based on those numbers if he had been healthy all season we had a chance to go 54 - 28 and would have been one of the tops seeds in the playoffs. I really don't care about any of this. I only care that we drafted Shai. There is the future face of this fanchise. He is the real deal and then some.

We couldn't do a Milos for Warren trade with the Suns? They have Josh Jackson, Mikal Bridges, and Ariza now. You'd think Warren would be up for a trade plus they need a couple of guards badly

SGA better start! I like Milos and Pat but I think we’re keeping him for trade bait

Rookie won't start from day one. There are always endurance issues at stake with a rookie, and he's a particularly thin rookie too.

I’m hoping to mentor the young ones and or be a trade bait for another team. The only things I’m afraid of is Doc using Milos way more than SGA.

Didn't you start the thread saying he was gone, lol. You've been breaking some bad rumors this year, are you talking to Chris Broussard?

Yeah, I hope he stays. Before the injury he was awesome. If he's healthy, he'll be huge for helping SGA with playmaking. I'd much rather use PatBev as trade bait TBH because aside from defense, he ain't got much going on.

I like Milos but aren't we looking towards the future? I hope a trade is coming and I hope we can secure our draft pick next year...

Hi I'm Jay by the way lol I'm always on this website just never been logged in. I've been a clippers fan since 1999 after I went to my 1st game, I was 11 , my whole family and friends are Laker fans so you can guess the heat I get from them , but I am excited for the future of this team, let's go..

We'll see what happens on the 14th, or before. Until the Clippers pony up, Milos return is all just speculation.

What isn't speculation is the numbers we have at guard. As in, too many.

Beverly, Bradley, Lou, Milos, SGA, Robinson. As it stands now, I would say those six will make the roster.

Add in Gortat, Harris, Scott, Wesley, Boban. Thornwell, Gallinari, Dekker, Luc, CJ.

That's 16 guys and still excludes Harrell, Evans and Wallace.

That's an adequate backcourt and better than that if SGA and/or Robinson emerge.

The front court is very week any way you look at it. Boban, Wesley, Thornwell, Dekker and CJ could all easily be out of the league and Gallinari and Harris are the only two who could be considered real keepers and we all know about Gallinari's health.

Look for more trades.

Boban is not leaving the league anytime soon and IMO shouldn’t be included in that list. He’s unusual but highly skilled.

That's the traditional old school way of thinking and I get the reasoning but me personally after watching him in SL play... I'm starting the Kid right out the gate and not look back. Of course not to overwork him with heavy minutes early on but this is one of those guys you start from the jump and let him work through his mistakes. Magic gave Lonzo Ball the keys to the car and Shai is way better Lonzo already.

I can't see this at all. He doesn't work out and there's too many rumors of him having a bad diet. And, nothing personal against the guy but I don't see youngsters bonding with an older European guy. I sure he smokes cigarettes.

Don't care much about whether Shai starts, it's about whether he gets minutes. No players development has been derailed because they didn't start, it can be slowed down if you never get any minutes for like you first two seasons, but can't see that happening at all anyways.

Welcome Jay! I am just a little older than you and got bit with the clippers bug in 1997. Yes the team has been disappointing a lot but so fun to support!!

Judging from Shai’s performance so far he is going to get a good amount of minutes. Wouldn’t be surprised if he is starting by earl 2019 if not sooner.

Jerome on the other hand might get oushed down the depth chart more, but hopefully he gets 15mpg and works his way to more.

Yeah those are not good mentor qualities..😂😂

I heard this as a rumor but did Milos smoke during halftime at games he played?? I remember reading that in a tweet somewhere don’t remember from whom but is that true?? 🤭😮

Yeah starting would really mean someone is injured and we need a point. But I agree he needs to be given some minutes. It would really be bad just seeing him in the bench and or just come in a minute or two of garbage basketball.

Milos' was balling for Serbia Night. That was the most excited I had been all season until he went down. Lets hope he is healthy and plays next year. He is a treat to watch. I don't want to lose him for nothing. He belongs and would be a great mentor for the young guards. Would love to keep him until the end of his nba career. His game is well suited for the playoffs and we plan on being there in the next 2 seasons. He has a friendly contract and can really help make other guys better. He didn't just show flashes, he is the real deal. Would hate to see him playing for another team and we get back nothing.

I'm okay with Milos being here as a backup IF we offload one of Lou vs Beverley and Bradley. Also gotta let Wallace go. Team needs to pick 5 or 6 guards that will compliment the future guard duo of SGA+Robinson.

The team doesn't have direction yet, so making a call as to who to keep is a big problem right now. I think the front office needs to make a decision: are we rebuilding or are we contending? Wallace is a rare find, a guy that was somehow overlooked in the draft and we got him. Thanks to Jerry West we have a ridiculous amount of assets-Lou Williams, Avery Bradley, Patrick Beverley, Tobias Harris, Montrezel Harris, and Boban Marjanovic. Each of these players alone can either net us picks or players that can fill in positions of need. The big question is what are we doing? Once we have direction then we can move accordingly. So far, West and the front office have been rumored in many different transactions ranging from trading DJ for picks, trading our two draft picks for a higher pick, to trading picks and players for Kawhai Leonard. In brief, what the media has put out has us basically probing to see what the best offer was going to be...rebuilding or contending. So far not one key free agent has signed. Also, West was not able to trade the mid 1st rounders for a top pick like he wanted...we are essentially still probing to see what to do. We are in limbo gentlemen.

I totally agree. The team seems torn or something. It's like they draft two NBA ready, possibly future star guards... yet want to retain all these veteran guards as a crutch to try to win 40 games or something. I do NOT want Kawhi because he will gut the team and could leave in a year, not to mention never be 100% again. I would only risk a Kawhi trade if the Clippers didn't include SGA or Robinson in the offer. Long term they are way better suited tanking for RJ Barrett or Reddish in the 2019 draft. Add another young beast to pair with SGA+Robinson and you have your 1, 2 and 3 of the future. Re-sign Harrell and you have a capable long term starting 4. Then you can use free agency money next year for a Klay or Jimmy Butler while either Robinson or 2019 pick fill in an elite 6th man role for a bit. Then you use cap money to get a trade or signing for a complimentary center next summer.

Clippers should have one goal. Play the young guys a ton next year while being as bad as possible. Then you add hopefully a top 3 pick to this team, sign a max guy or two and boom, contenders in 2019-2020 with possibly more upside and a more suitable playstyle long term by the time the Warriors dynasty winds down. I think Myles Turner would be a dream fit at the center spot next to a SGA/Robinson/Kawhi or Butler or Klay/Harrell lineup. I think Clippers should offer him max next summer and hope Indiana doesn't match.

I think the team clearly has made a decision on who it is and where it's going. It seems obvious to me.

Just look at all the one-year contracts and how the team is absolutely refusing to do anything that would even remotely compromise flexibility next summer. We have assembled a reasonable degree of talent and youth. We are going to play and compete. I don't think, as currently constructed, we are a playoff team, which will give us a top ten pick next summer.

Everything is set up for next summer. This season is a test to see how good the rookies are and if we can depend on them going forward. It's a test to see which veterans can be a part of this team beyond next season. There may yet be trades, but I will virtually guarantee you that we won't be bringing in any long-term contracts so that we don't lose flexibility. Every player will be evaluated throughout the season and next summer and NEXT JUNE AND JULY WEST AND CO. WILL PUT THIS TEAM TOGETHER for the coming seasons.

How young we go will depend on how the rookies do this year. If they are doing well, look for trades by the deadline to move out players like Lou, Beverly or Bradley (not necessarily all of them) to bring in more young players or picks. This is a season of evaluation before the defining summer of this franchise for the next 5 - 7 years; the summer of 2019.

One year contracts are for flexibility, but to what end? To get veterans off the books, clear space, and rebuild? If that's the case, why re-sign Williams, Bradley, and not jettison Teodosic? It seems like that's contradictory to rebuilding doesn't it? You are adding contracts and hindering your ability to tank and add more young pieces. If you miss the playoff why not just tank and do so spectacularly to get a high draft pick. Thus far, with the re-acquisitions, we have an indication of fielding another 9th seed team at best. Additionally regarding the evaluation of rookies: the problem I have with that statement is how will we evaluate the rookies? Play time will be scarce for them. What possible minutes can SGA and JR get with Beverley, Teodosic, Williams, and Bradley on the roster?

Now, this is kind of contradictory, it seems to basically support what I have been saying all along, which is that our front office doesn't have a clear direction, and they are basically waiting for either a huge trade to happen or these two rookies to be so good that we just trade all the veterans and go young. I have to respectfully disagree with you Sam. It doesn't seem like their direction is clear at all, and I think even your own words seem to indicate that they are waiting to see what happens. What we have done thus far is stock pile assets so that once that first domino falls we have pieces to trade and go full fully into one direction. I honestly think that if...just if...West can land Kawhai (or a player of this caliber) on a favorable trade, it will happen. However, if we don't get the marquee free agent or trade, then the organization will start to trade away everyone over 25 to go full rebuild.

By maintaining as much flexibility as possible, we can go in any direction next summer; the summer where the team will decide where it's going. In other words, this summer isn't the summer of big decision as to who it is and where it's going. Next summer is. All this summer is about is setting the stage for next summer.

Will we go young? West and company don't know for sure. They don't have to. We will have the coming season to make that decision. If SGA and Robinson prove exceptional, that will be what the decision is built around. If they bust, we do not have to commit to a rebuild with youth.

What I am saying is, we have neither committed to go young, or with vets. We are merely setting the stage to make that decision by mid season, at which time we will have a lot more information than we have now. Is SGA our PG for the next ten years? Is Robinson our SG for the next ten years? How high a pick are we getting next year? Who is available? We should know these things by February, at which time you will see the team start making the big commitment.

Again, we don't have to decide our direction right now. It would be foolish to, when we can wait until we know how good the rookies are, what free agents are going to be available when we have money, etc. There is nothing contradictory about it. West knows exactly what he's going. This is a plan in place that is obvious.

That plan is maintaining flexibility by making this summer all about setting ourselves up for next summer.

so essentially, you are saying the same thing I have been saying, aren't you? Which is that there isn't a direction: meaning we are waiting to see what to do. By this last response it seems as if we are observing the same thing, which is :no the front office does not know what direction to go in because we haven't seen all the possibilities, am I correct?

Yes, that is largely correct. But it clearly comes as a plan to do exactly that. It's not indecision, chaos or incompetence, which is where I thought some were going. This is a plan and it's been well choreographed, starting with the trade of Blake Griffin.

As far as I can tell the deadline to waive Milos for the reduced sum has passed, and that means we've picked him up. CBS reporting that too:

certainly no one can accuse Jerry West of chaotic or incompetent. I think you and I are viewing the same thing unfold albeit differently. We both agree that the clippers are stock piling assets-whether for trade for superstar players or trade for picks neither of us know. Where we differ is that you view West as making every move as being planned..I disagree. Here is my rationale:

  1. Lou Williams and Avery Bradley were both re-signed. These are short terms that result in great bargaining chips. This would suggest we have control of these two players. Even though both are on short contracts, I think Bradley's $12 mill per year was slightly too high

  2. We have absolutely nothing on Milos. Mills isn't a star or even a good player, but he has a vital set of skills that would make him valuable for contenders as insurance in case a starting PG went down. Mills would be highly sought after by teams like Houston who have injury prone starters.

  3. The situation with Harrell is still unresolved...If he leaves you will have lost a player that can be part of a rebuild. Wouldn't it make sense to have locked up Harrell and Milosls on favorable, short term contracts befitting their merit? But this hasn't happened.

If the plan was indeed to just sign and trade everyone there's no way we would be letting Harrell and Milos dangle like that. This is why while we both agree that the Clippers are waiting to make their first move in the new direction i don't think it is as planned as you believe.

My point is that everything is planned so as to allow maximum flexibility for next summer. There is no new contract that isn't ending, or we can't get out of. Lou is very tradable. Bradley is likewise tradable at his price, or we get a cheap buyout. Beverly's contract is ending. Milos is ending. We brought in some new guys, Scott and Luc on one-year contracts. Gortat's contract ends after this year as does Harris's. Nobody is being extended, even though you could make a case to extend Harris and Harrell. We're just not doing it.

All this was planned, so that we can react to any opportunity that presents itself at the trade deadline, or next summer. The plan is not any more involved than that. And Gallinari was signed on the previous, compete now, plan that didn't work.

No clue in hell why Clippers seem intent on having 8+ guards. Unless a few go out before the season that is disastrous for our promising rookies to get playing time.

Doc’s 3 guard lineups. Bev, Bradley, Shai, Harris,Gortat will be the starting lineup IMO

Clippers should have one goal. Play the young guys a ton next year while being as bad as possible. Then you add hopefully a top 3 pick to this team, sign a max guy or two and boom, contenders in 2019-2020 with possibly more upside and a more suitable playstyle long term by the time the Warriors dynasty winds down. I think Myles Turner would be a dream fit at the center spot next to a SGA/Robinson/Kawhi or Butler or Klay/Harrell lineup. I think Clippers should offer him max next summer and hope Indiana doesn't match.
Tend to agree, we've....

With so many guards, and the deadline passed to waive Milos, it just seems that tanking it not the goal here. If tanking while giving the new guys more opportunity for minutes was the goal Milos would be gone. CJ would already be gone. And they signed new contracts with no roster spots. So I don't get it. The only thing that makes sense is that I think they are trying to orchestrate a trade. But it may not be Kawhi. It could be for one of the other players who will be free agents next summer and are on expiring contracts and there teams are afraid they are going to walk without them getting anything. I don't know who. The Clippers operate in the quiet zone.

I'm still not positive the deadline to waive Milos passed. I saw somewhere else the deadline could be today.

Yea, I thought it may be a day early but didn't question it. Deadline is today.

At least if they keep Milos.... and Shai learns to dish the ball more (maybe it was all the SML scrubs?)... he’ll have a dependable stand up shooter to dish to. Milos in catch n’ shoot situations is cash money

thats a good way to look at it. Hopefully, he can also learn from Beverley and play defense like him.

Yeah I know it's too long. Sam was a good PG. He has plenty of mentoring.

Willie Green is an assistant coach somewhere. Loved him.

This must mean a trade is coming. We’re loaded on guards.
