    He is ready to come home - he has made his money - will take a discount to come home.

    Deandre for 20 million would be a great back up plan if Clint leaves or gets an outrageous offer.

    2 years ago would have been thrilled to hear something like this.
    But Clint has come a LONG way in his development and is no longer the liability
    at the FT line that DJ is. Clint becomes more valuable at crunch time.

    BUT, if Clint leaves that's a different story.

    So the course of action would be trading Capela and preferably Anderson(Cap filler as well) for a third star caliber player. Then getting Jordan for cheap? Eh.

    Wow
    Idk
    At a discount he might be good for us

    Cyberx is back and please no more cyberex. Spell it right guys.

    Cyberx is based in LA so this is very credible. Like during the Dwight saga. I’m pretty sure he isn’t happy with that losing clippers team.
    If he comes at a discount that would give us more flexibility. I don’t know how much Clint will get on his next contract.

    Oh yeah isn't he expiring? If someone throws him a max deal, then we have to venture out to Jordan.

    Clint will never leave. Loves living here, he has the MVP feeding him the ball.

    Morey will pay him.

    Yep this is the important part. How much of a discount are we really talking about.

    How much of a discount, though? He'll be eligible for money he isn't likely to get, but he'd still be up for a lot of dough re mi.

    What could we even offer (if Morey is still even entertaining the idea; he's always coveted an elite rebounder / shot-blocker *cough cough* who knows his place *cough cough*).
