Just curious, which teams could use/need DJ and willing to paid him max $? And not sure what teams are looking to shed salary cap for next year that makes sense to trade with. I'm sure there are maybe be some, but the list is pretty small. BTW, the deal for me hinges on getting Brooklyn's 1st rounder. Cleveland could really use DJ in getting through the east and into the finals. LeBron and DJ would make a deadly pick and roll combination. And DJ's rebounding + defense only make Cleveland that much better for maybe LeBrons last run with the Cavaliers. Hold....

Don't think we need to rush it at all.

Of all the trade scenarios the aurthor thinks might be good trading partners, the Bucks seem to be the next best bet other then the Cavaliers especially if they can get Brogdon in the deal.

We're actually in a pretty great trade situation. This may become a bidding war between BOS, MIL and CLE-each team knows that DJ can push the needle for their competition.

Yes, it looks like DJs value may be most used in the East. But we'd need for more assets than players - given taking away players may hurt the other team (this is assuming we trade him to a team that is competitive.)

If this news will happen, we will get the Kardhasian family too. So basically we will add another injury in our list . Im hoping a veteran PG maybe Deron William until Milos will comeback. http://hollywoodlife.com/2017/11/26/tristan-thompson-la-clippers-deand re-jordan-trade-kloe-kardashian/ Tristan Thompson Could Get Traded To The Clippers - Making Khloe & Kendall's BF's Teammates Get ready to see both Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner at Clippers games, as we've EXCLUSIVELY learned the Cavs want to trade Tristan Thompson to the Clippers as soon as 'next week.' It looks like Khloe Kardashian, 33, may have spent her last Thanksgiving in Cleveland. Koko was out in C-Town for Turkey Day, spending it with her reported baby daddy, Cleveland Cavaliers star Tristan Thompson, 26. However, it seems like his time with the Cavs is coming to an end! "Tristan Thompson may get an early Christmas present and move to LA," a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. "The Clippers are trying to put together a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers that would involve money, picks and DeAndre Jordan." Whoa. If this trade goes through, Khloe will no longer be sporting the Cavs' wine and gold. She would suddenly become the biggest Clippers fan � except for maybe her sister, Kendall Jenner, 20. Kendall has been spotted at numerous Clippers games, cheering on her bae, Blake Griffin, 28. Kendall even flew across the country to see him play against the New York Knicks on Nov. 21. If Tristan trades teams, Khloe's alleged baby daddy will be playing side-by-side with Kendall's sweetheart! Tristan has been on the shelf since suffering a calf injury during the Cavs' Nov. 1 game with the Indiana Pacers. That may be the last time he wears a Cleveland jersey, as the insider says the team is looking to seal this deal right away. "They are working on making the trade within....

All I gotta say is, "bros before hoes".

Blake should pick DJ over Tristan... or we should trade Blake over to Clevland so that the Jenner/Kardashian family could be quarantined to Clevland.

I was about to say lets go after Marc Gasol since he is unhappy with being benched by Fizdale...but then the Grizzlies fire Fizdale, so that is a no go.

But anyway, here's my take on DJ. If you look at that top tier teams in West, the weakest position is Center. Warriors with Pachulia, Rockets with Capela. One would think our All-Star center in DJ would be able to dominate them, right? Wrong. DJ doesn't make enough of a difference on the offensive or defensive end in that case for us to get over the hump. I would much rather have Tristan Thompson and Crowder over DJ. Also, am I the only one who's noticed that DJ's defense has gotten significantly worse? Yeah he gets a lot of rebounds, but what happened to all of his blocks and rim protection. One might argue it's because big men are on the perimeter so he's out of the paint, but if that's the case, why is he RARELY contesting big men threes? I don't know...rant over. All I know is whenever I watch DJ, I don't really get excited anymore. He's not a game changer to me, so why not get some assets for him while we can.

I would try to get PG13 for DJ. Who says no?

I would do that in a heartbeat, but it would most likely have to be a three team trade. Thunder don't need DJ.

There's rumors the Bucks are interested in DJ and the Clippers are asking for Henson, Middleton, and Brogdon. As much as i love DJ and what he brings, it might just be time to move on. What's everyone's thoughts on this?

We'll also throw in Doc. That way, Kidd would teach him how to coach.

Reading realgm you get the idea that we shouldn't expect much from a DJ trade. There is a worry about him being only a rental and of course there are his shortcomings. You'd have to trade Blake to really get something substantial.

I wonder how much this will affect our ability to trade DJ. If teams believe it's a foregone conclusion he'll be joining the Rockets, or there's at least a strong possibility, it's not likely they'll pull the trigger on a half-season rental.

Perhaps he'll sign with Houston in the offseason.

It doesn't mean that Houston is the only trade partner.

In order to get something, they have to give up something and they don't have anything to give up.

Should've traded Dj a few seasons ago. But then again Doc should've been fired since then as well. He's got one more left on his contract but I really hope Ballmer will part ways after this season. Loyalty is overrated.

CP should recruit, DJ and the two Rivers, and have a reunion.

Dec 15 is when the unoffical trade season starts. That's when free agents signed this past offseason can officially be traded. I think the clippers are waiting until then to see what else opens up as far as trades and player availability. Seeing how well CP3 is playing makes me think we should have kept him and tried to trade for Paul George instead of resigning Blake. Then we would have had a star a the guard, forward and center position. A more balance team. DJ plays so much better with CP3. Side note: I don't care if Austin gets 50 in his next game he needs to get traded!

We couldn't keep CP3. He left on his own and luckily allowed a sign and trade so we were able to get something out of it.

Lakers put Randle and Nance available for trade can we trade Gallo and Decker for them? both of them can play PF and SF. And both young.

I don't mind randle's game. Sure he makes bonehead moves but he'll be a sixth man. With all the injuries we could use someone who can create shots off the bench.

Don't think they want to inherit contracts for the next couple years.

They'd prefer expiring with a draft pick.

I am waiting on the Nets number one from Cleveland. Thanks to some shrewd scouting by West and company, we no longer need quality depth or solid rotational players. We have both in spades.

We need a young star to match with Blake. So screw the Milwaukee offer and most others. If the deal doesn't include a top ten pick, no thanks. I will try to resign DJ and Lou and go forward with what we have, while trying to move Beverly and Gallinari.

The Nets pick is becoming less and less valuable by the day as the Nets continue to surprise. Seems like a haul including Brogdon and Middleton and or Parker is a better option. Don't really care if they throw in Henson or not though.

Lou will cost $$ and so will DJ. How can we afford them? How much will Austin be worth?

Clipper side/ fans would do this trade, it's just probably not true though. If true, the. Minnesota has the right to rebuff that trade, we would be screwing them, or they tried to trade him for Kat Williams not KAT

Yes, you're right... but something is fishy with this entire ordeal. Will love some clarification. But also, I probably will not love the results of the clarification.

Good trade for us but realistically we can only probably get an expiring contract for Blake for example Paul George since George's value is slowly declining with all the rumors of him going to the lakers

KAT, PG13... I'd take either of em really. Don't think these are realistic... but I have been quite pessimistic for some time now.

Truth be told, I do not like his game much... but I love the engine on Westbrook.

Complete dream scenario, in a make believe world... BG and Westbrook swap = ultimate homecoming. Let BG get hurt and wear suits in his home state, and let Westbrook go to war and raise fear in the hearts of the GSW from HOME.

DJ + Westbrook are a match made in heaven IMO.

We'd need a Klay or Draymond type of player to play productively off the ball... but we can figure that out after we watch some electrifying and rim obliterating basketball from DJ and Westbrook.

Although in this dream DJ does not go home to HOU.

Very stupid trade to let leak out. No chance of happening and now serves as a distraction for the team at a critical juncture in the season. Bad Jerry West.

Wait wait wait, if it was a bad move it was a Doc move. Jerry just gets credit for the things we like, remember? Also, why is now such a critical juncture?

Blake for cousins is also a realistic ones. Both players value is low.

Why? I've been saying this for a while now. I even said the Clippers should have lowballed him on his contract. I have no problem letting BG go since he's not worth the contract based on his lost time to injuries. With that said, if a move like this happens, we kill two birds with one stone. Getting KAT means DJ is gone...Not that he isn't going to leave by this year, but that gives us the more polished center who can shoot. A move like this would complete the rebuild with a young star.

I like BG but I like the Clippers more. I'm ready to move from this and most of Clippers land should too.

If true, I love that we're shopping both DJ and BG. BG fades into the background way too often, especially with his price tag, not to mention his injuries (even if some were accidents). Hopefully there is someone out there to get us some young players and picks for them.

Yeah it's good to see us trying to move Blake. The ball movement and team play is much better without out him. It's ashamed it took all these injuries to force doc to run a more fluid ball movement offense.
