I didn't think he was still playing. Doc loves the oldsters.

Hmm. Link source please. Don't see anything from a search.

If that’s the case then let’s start searching for Ryan Gomes.

Rep for a good laugh... Also cause it seems to be one of the few posts that doesn't have everyone on edge. I feel like everyone should just grab a snickers bar in here. Come to terms with the talent we have at the moment, and realize the near future we are in for... and have fun moving forward.

So rep for having fun moving forward, really appreciate it - although you did make my heart jump a bit Wink

Sacramento appears to have some pretty good up n’ coming players and skilled bigs. The West is tough, and they probably won’t spontaneously turn the corner out of nowhere... but Bagley and Mason should fill in nicely right away and give their fans some excitement.

I’m just hoping that Robinson and Shai give our Clips that same feeling. If they come in and ball right from jump, then it might bring the FO some clarity in terms of figuring out what to do with our army of wings.

Then, it doesn’t matter... any possible upcoming signings, from O’Quinn to whoever... I’ll be thinking about what they bring to the table rather than who or what we may have missed out on.

Also a lot of us have wanted cap space in the past, even over and above resigning current players (eg: DJ's free agency), so I think we should give cap space a chance and see what can be accomplished next summer. Now with cap space there's always a possibility for it not being as fruitful as our imaginations expect, but we'll see, it might be even more fruitful.

Well yea, and everything in between... It is just that I look to our history and I am not too happy. Never in our history has a FA come into LAC. CP was swindled and that is really the only superstar to ever don a LAC jersey. Now you may say that now things are different, we have Steve Ballmer... I will say OK. That is the only reason I am a little hopeful for landing a star.

If not it is usually done via trading and growing youth... But a competent owner and management group can compel talent to come to the greatest city in the country. We'll see, and I am more hopeful now than I have ever been.

Projected Standing for 2018-19 season: Everybody knows we won't make the playoffs. Guess what neither will the Lakers.😄

I think there are good attractions to playing for the LAC. Like some have mentioned we do have Steve Ballmer, Jerry West and I’ll go on the record to say a good coach in Doc. The others are it’s LA and the new stadium that could be built so no more sharing with the lakers. The negatives are we still have the competition with the lakers for LA, winning fans, and the media always putting us as the second team in LA. The other thing I hate is the fans that pour in to the stadium to cheer other teams that the clippers play. The one thing I have observed at the clipper games is that many who cheered for the opposing team sometimes are wearing laker gear.

That list is wrong. NO has no Rondo and cousins these two guys made their team better but they are gone. San Antonio has Pop but if Leonard is still there but sits it out for the season I don’t see them getting into the playoffs this season. Plus the vets are a year older. So maybe we can sneak in or be close to the playoffs. I’m predicting a 8 seed or a close 9th. After the summer league and pre season are over then we will have a better picture as to what seed we might reach.

Yea, not getting into the observations... which can be totally valid. But without a star, without clout, without an expectation and tradition of winning... you do not get the glitz and glamour in a large market like LA. Especially when there is another franchise (one of the best ever) in town.

The issue is that any star LA picks up will match up with Lebron and that is a negative for any incoming star... We would need a good mix of stars and high performing young talent in order to get a crowd trending up for LAC.

LAL fans will be as obnoxious as ever now with King James... we took for granted that they have been laying dormant for a little while.

We need to win. And it needs to happen WITH King James in purple and gold, or else we don't have a chance. So actually there is a lot of responsibility on high value players like Trezl and rookies/young players.

Clippers are ranked too high as this team stands today.

Assuming no trades or other significant moves are made;

Our backcourt is comparable to last years, which is not good. Gone is Austin and in his place is Bradley, which is a limited plus. Lou will likely not have another career year. The only true PG on this roster is Shai and he's a rookie, probably not ready to lead (though I hope I am wrong on this). Perhaps Milos will come back and if healthy, our backcourt will be marginally better than last year. There is simply no room for Beverly as an undersized 3 and D player if we want our rookies to develop.

Our front court however is a whole lot worse. Gortat isn't nearly the player DJ is. Gallinari will almost certainly be hurt again so we will be playing Gortat, Scott, Harris and some other add on, (Harrell perhaps) in a rotation that will likely still include Wesley Johnson. This is a dreadful group and we will see just how much DJ brought us. Essentially, it's Harris and a bunch of backup level players.

I am not saying we are headed in the wrong direction. We need to do this, but we will pay a steeper price than most believe. I feel confident we will finish behind Dallas, Memphis and Pheonix along with everyone else who is listed above us.

On the bright side, I shot an even par 72 at Encino yesterday.

Nice round Sam! Didn’t realize you are a golfer. I just moved to Colorado but if I am back in town playing will hit you up, usually play in the OC though.

That standings chart looks terrible. The Blazers lost almost no one and they are ranked to rank, while the Pelicans lost two big pieces and they are ranked better. Don’t see the Timberwolves playing better with their turmoil. As much as I’d like to see the lakers miss the playoffs they will probably be a top 4 team.

Also, could see the Suns making some decent ground this year, possibly winning enough to be 5 games within .500.

The spurs are going to be mediocre at best (they had some bad streaks this last year) and the Nuggets probably won’t be much better. They should have Millsap back but they lost chandler and MPJ probably won’t play for a while

Ahahahaaa. Nice last touch.

I am going to agree with you. We would be shooting in the 30s range - doesn't look too great.

I don't know where the source for this was, but there are multiple things I have an issue with, so I am not going to get hung up about LA.

34 wins? That’s very generous. Not that great and not too horrible. Guess it’s respectable for free agents plus keeping the pick.

Yes Lakers have LeBron but will he be able to play good with the current laker roster. So they have to prove themselves. Like you said the laker fans will be obnoxious even more now with LeBron even though I heard some dislike LeBron and him being a laker so maybe those can jump ship to our team or back us up. 😂😂

So far right now I’m just excited to see our guys play tomorrow. Time will tell and things hopefully fall in place.

WTH I don’t get it! Why is our win decreasing not increasing?

According to many expert Bradley>Austin because Austin can’t shoot and brings the whole team down.

In addition, DJ didn’t play any defense last year and Harrell is as good of a defender as DJ. With Harrell and Gortat, that means better/equal defense as DJ with more offense.

It seems like we got the upgrade a lot of fans are waiting for.

A lot of the wins projection methods underestimate wins, but do those include players that teams haven't signed yet? Harrell, Capela, etc?

Umm have you seen Gortat play? He sucks bro.

Dj’s uninspired play last season left a lot to be desired. Even with his lack luster performance he is a better center than Gortat and Harrell by a large margin.

As far as PF this is Harrell’s year to prove he can do it for more than 17 MPG. Like I said there was a similar guy named Faried and when he got his contract and starter minutes he fell off a cliff.

My view is 23 would be a good year for this group, assuming Gallinari is hurt for most of the season (always a safe assumption).

I have but the general consensus here is DJ isn’t even top 10 center and Austin is 90% of the time have negative impact on the team.

Hahaaa... Addition by subtraction right? Except our projected wins were subtracted... And maybe even generous.

Moving on, wishing the two well.... especially DJ.

Carmelo would have been nice a few years ago when they wanted Austin but daddy nix the deal. That year Carmelo would have put the Clippers over the top in my opinion. To bad we'll never know.

we will have cap space regardless so no need to bring in Melo. Besides, OKC will most like buy him out and he will sign with Houston or the Lakers.

after he is bought out by OKC, he can take vets minimum to play in Houston. Wouldn't matter since OKC will be paying him too.

I don't know if OKC would want Gallo just because of how injury prone he is, but he would fit well with them at the 4.

Westbrook

Roberson

George

Gallinari (healthy)

Adams

Is a very good starting 5. We can buy Carmelo out which opens up cap for next season and then whomever wants to think he's still a player that helps can go and sign him (Houston or LAL I would assume). OKC is supposedly trying to save on luxury tax though and while Gallo saves them money, they can probably find trades to save more. I would expect an asset from OKC too though.

I’m always a total homer on the board, but I’d love to pick up David Nwaba. I know, I know... he’s asking for too much. We already have way too many SG... Guards in general for that matter... but I love the superior athletic ability and I think his outside shooting is improving. He has a Reggie Jackson style 7’ wingspan on a 6’4 frame... and I went to Cal Poly with him. Wish we could’ve picked him up initially. I like Thornwell, but I think Nwaba’s better in the same role.

Dang I really wish we had gotten in on that Faried trade. We could have traded Milos who they could cut and saved $4mm, plus Beverly who they would have used and we had $2.5mm in cap room. Faried actually would have helped us and we would have gotten a 1-12 protected pick!

Faried's injured too much, only played 461 minutes last season, pass on that. Harrell is a much younger, much healthier version of Faried, we'd be much better off resigning him. Last thing we need is to sign any more injury prone players, we already have a couple we need to unload.

If we didn't have like 9 guards on the team, and that's without Tyrone Wallace signed, David Nwaba is an interesting prospect who the Bulls just made unrestricted

Didn't even see your post, just scrolled up and saw it, but I like him too, but that would be like guard #11, lol

He’s on a 1 year contract so you let him walk at the end of the year and we pick up a 1st round pick but oh well didn’t happen
