The Los Angeles Clippers today acquired center Cheikh Samb and cash considerations from the Denver Nuggets in exchange for a future conditional second draft pick.

A 7-foot-1-inch center from Senegal, Samb has played in six games with the Nuggets this season, averaging 0.7 points, 1.5 rebounds and 0.2 assists in 4.0 minutes. Samb came to Denver on Nov. 3 along with Chauncey Billups and Antonio McDyess in exchange for Allen Iverson. Samb was assigned to the Colorado 14ers of the NBA Development League on Dec. 10 and has averaged 12.4 points, 7.1 rebounds and 3.8 blocks in 10 games with the 14ers.

Desperate times call for mediocre measures in Dunleavy's regime.

The Guy that will save the Clippers season is Donald Sterling, if he ever gets the brains to let Dunleavy go.

I'm convinced from this past summer and his tenure at the Lakers (without Magic, he would've gotten nowhere and was swiftly out-coached by Phil in the Finals), Milwaukee, Portland and the Clippers that the guy knows basketball but has no idea how to put his knowledge to practical use.

Fire Dunleavy, hire Mark Jackson and find a new / any new GM and the Clippers can right the ship (pun intended).

Theus didn't look ready to coach on the NBA level. Cheeks wouldn't be bad, but it always felt like he had trouble relating to today's players.

I'd give new blood a chance and reach out to Jackson with a big fat offer.

Either way, (healthy team or not) Dunleavy has got to go if this team ever wants to do anything.

Why he's got such a long leash, when other coaches / GMs have been fired for less is just completely beyond me.

Where's Calm Insanity?

Since he's the ultimate and die-hardiest (yes, I made it up) Clipper fan, I'd like to know what he thought of Randy Hill's idea for a beginning to a Clipper re-vamp (which I think is beyond interesting, bordering on completely feasible).

Baron Davis > Golden State for Monta Ellis
(once injuries heal)

Chris Kaman > Chicago for Kirk Hinrich
(once injuries heal)

Giving the Clippers a far more balanced roster of:

PG - Hinrich / Taylor / Hart
SG - Gordon / Ellis
SF - Thornton / Davis / Novak
PF - Randolph / Davis
C - Camby / Samb / Jordan

The article mentioning the trade ideas

I have nothing to say, just agree that Dunleavy knows about basketball but can't put this team to use.

His offense is stagnant and involves too much iso. The only players that would fit in the iso plays are Kobe, LeBron, Wade, Iverson, T-Mac, and the likes of players like them.

Sam Mitchell would be a nice pickup, although it would be pointless at this time of the season to have a coaching change.

On the other hand, 7 players injured means DeAndre Jordan FINALLY gets some running time, which is great. He's coming along very nicely.

I don't think I even have to talk about Gordon. The guy is an absolute monster, and he's gona be a star. Quote me.
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 :)

Dunleavy and Sterling are buddies... plus, there's no way sterling will fire his GM and his coach at the same time, in the middle of the season.

I dont know... the way I look at it is that they had an absolute mess on their hands in the offseason. Dunleavy took care of things and put together a relevant team that was capable of competing in the Pacific. Somewhere in between, Dunleavy made some mistakes on the coaching end. Sure, it's difficult to make basically an entire new team work in a matter of weeks, but i think somewhere along the line, he misjudged the complexity of the situation.

All that said, I love Dunleavy's work ethic. I've never seen a coach that is so involved with the overall concept of maintaining a basketball team... from scouting games to meeting with players halfway across the world as a coach, i think he's paved his way as a decent GM in the future.... maybe his coaching days are close to over, but I think he understands the Association better than most.

The future of this Clippers team lies in the hands of Gordon and Thornton. If they can keep those two around, they'll have a real building block on a couple of home-grown fan favorites. I love watching those two guys out there.
