Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer has reported that the Clippers are expected to hold onto their stable of big men this season.

Windhorst claims that word around the NBA is that Los Angeles won't trade Zach Randolph, Marcus Camby or Chris Kaman.

Kaman is currently injured, which would make him hard to trade.

Not trying to better the team through using the glut of big men (in particular Kaman) = Clippers mistake # 1,087.

I wouldn't trade the big guys.

We need someone to rotate and keep a big man in at all times.

Think Bynum, Gasol, and Odom off the bench. Camby can play starting center like Bynum does, Randolph plays the 4 like Gasol does, and sure Odom's a back up 4 but Kaman's a back up 5. Close enough, either way there's rotation.

How come you support the Lakers' rotation and not the Clippers? It's the same thing. Only difference is right now Randolph and Kaman are injured =(

Randolph just got injured Last monday but Kaman's been out. That's why we haven't noticed anything.
I'm a DIE HARD Clippers fan, and proud. I respect the Lakers and watch them every chance I get.

Respect me and I'll respect you. Don't respect me... we'll cross that bridge when we get there :)

I can support the Lakers' rotation because they aren't in such vital need of other components on their team to be successful.

The Clippers are in need of more athleticism at the smaller positions. They have a glut of slow footed big guys that can get them at least one player they need to win more than 10 games by the all-star break.
