Watch when NONE of this happens. NONE of it.

 

Donald Sterling's stepson just wants to keep the Clippers name out there, so that we aren't the only LA team being discussed.

 

 

Only way this happens is if Ainge wants karl or someone like that to pair with Rondo and Jordan

Now word is deal between Clippers and Celtics is "close to being done very, very soon."

 

Boston wants to unload at least one multi-year contract onto the Clippers to get this deal done, source says.

 

Without Bledsoe, source tells Y! that Celtics are "pushing for increased financial flexibility," instead of more draft considerations.

 

Wow..and getting KG,Pierce,Doc while keeping Bledsoe..

Does this mean there is truth to those Dwight S&T stuff. Why are they so keen on keeping Bledsoe....Hmm.

Told you guys those "reports" of this being dead were bogus, c'mon now. Usually when there's smoke, there's fire. Haven't we learned?

 by keeping Bledsoe that means Clippers are really intent to trading him with Blake for Dwight

Doc is a great coach. That would be a steal for him.

Throw in Howard at the five and KG back down to the 4 IF the rumors were true about Bledsoe and griffin to us. Though I STILL wouldn't do the trade unless I was planning on flipping one of them lol

We're not giving Dwight to the Clippers for Bledsoe or Griffin.

We aren't giving Dwight to the Clippers for anything less than Chris Paul ;)

The best part of it is that chemistry is no longer a major issue.. They'll adapt really quick..

 

 

West is getting more difficult..

 

East: Miami and maybe Indiana

West: Oklahoma, Spurs, Clippers, Rockets, Warriors and maybe Lakers..

 

 

I have this strange feeling this will be the seeding next year prior to the playoffs, and LAL,LAC first round matchup  :laughing: ..

But lakers have MDA. Lol.

 

If Clippers gets to keep bledsoe then the Howard to Clippers isn't that hard to believe.

 

Reason why I think Howard would move to Clippers.

 

-Doc Rivers > MDA

 

-He'll be able to stay in LA.

 

-Most likely be 1st option in offense.

 

-CP3 and Dwight have been talking lately.

The Lakers aren't going to help the Clippers make a superteam.

Dwight's only option this off-season aside from CP3 and Him going to Atlanta is going to a depleted Rockets team with no CBA space after they got rid of their depth to sign him. 

That's why the Lakers say they aren't gonna sign and trade Dwight.

Cause his two options are virtually he either re-signs with the Lakers and becomes a part of their 2014 plan to contend for a title for the next 5 years or he goes to Houston that depletes their team to sign him with the worst bench in the western conference and no room to grow and in CBA hell for 30 million less. 

if those are Dwight's only two options the Lakers aren't worried.  

So they aren't gonna make that decision easier for Dwight by helping him form a superteam anywhere but the Lakers.

 

The Rockets know that too, they know after they get rid of their depth that Dwight wouldn't be enough.

That's why they are trying to free up money to sign Chris Paul with it and aquire Dwight in a sign and trade. 

It shows that their first choice as far as the money goes is spending it on CP3 cause I don't hear anything about them offering the Clippers anything for Chris Paul in a sign and trade.

That says a lot about them.

While I entertain what we SHOULD ask if we absolutely were going to S&T Howard, given his options if we do absolutely nothing, I don't worry too much.  Going to a depleted Houston team hurts him more than us.  We'd then have money to sign two max players in the 2014 off-season with the money he didn't take and he'd suffer a first or second round exit for the next few years for 30 million less.

The Lakers aren't gonna do Dwight any favors cause they know the cards they hold and how much better their plan is from Houston's which is his only option if we didn't S&T him, nor should they.

Yeah lets just hope that thats only dwight's 2 option. Lol.

 

Im sure every team in NBA would be willing to find a way to get dwight howard in their team if they are given the chance.

Clippers still feel Boston asking for too much and won't "get taken advantage of," source says. But still plan on discussing this further

 


and more here http://espn.go.com/n...lks-no-deal-yet

Seems both teams just can't agree on the framework when Bledsoe isn't involved.

Im sure teams like Mavs, Nets, Hawks, etc. are all willing to sign dwight howard.


Nets can't. 

I'm sure the Mavs and the Hawks would be willing to sign him but they wouldn't offer him the selof gratification and honestly neither of those teams are gonna win within the next 5 years.  

It's basically down to the Rockets and the Lakers, and the Lakers plan for contending for years outdoes the Rockets one in my opinion.

if Dwight went there he'd be hurting himself more than us in the long run.

The Clippers have called off the deal with the Celtics. Clippers executive said Celtics asking for too much, the Times told today.
