    I'll take one DJ at 10mil than pay Clint at 20mil. By the time Clint enters his real prime, our title window will have passed and it'll be time to tank or get lucky with another trade.

    He also has great defensive skills. Clint is fine but he seems like a one trick pony. He can get over powered in the paint easily.

    i dont think he sucks. just saying hes no star like you said he was. im completely fine with being more comfortable with clint over DJ especially when you can still play clint in the 4th quarter and their impacts on the game are compatible and clint comes without an ego

    Looks like the Clippers want to blow their current core up:

    That would be smart cause they're not going to win **** with Blake, DeAndre, Gallo etc...

    I call bullshit on that report. Not only was Minnesota never going to do it, I doubt it was ever discussed.

    "Hey Minnesota, do you want our injury-prone PF for KAT?"

    Haha for real.

    “Hey Minnesota...we need to rebuild but don’t feel like waiting. Can you help us out?”

    I can’t believe Jordan is going to sign here for 10 million. He’d be leaving tens of millions on the table. I don’t think that is what paycut means.

    Stepien Rule prevents teams from dealing future first rounders if it *could possibly* leave them without a first round pick in consecutive years.

    Under your scenario, if MIL trades the protected portion of their 2018 pick, then it is possible that MIL will have to convey their pick to the other team in 2018 and then to PHX in 2019. Hence, that trade would be prohibited.

    Give me DJ right now 3 team trade. Capela has huge tremendous upside no doubt but games like yesterday show how much of a non factor he can be at times right now at this stage of his career. He should of absolutely killed the clips last night with no DJ. Imagine if DJ played sheesh.

    DJ and Chris Paul have stayed in contact I’m sure he didn’t stay in LA for doc or Blake or rivers ( Something is brewing for DJ to find his way to Houston ) Sometimes it’s frustrating watching capela out there and the other team is just having a layup drill. DJ is more of a win now player then Capela even tho some might argue capela is better than DJ now but DJ would have more of a impact consistently the capela does with us right now.

    I’ll take deandre, Capela has times where he’s not aggressive and gets boxed out by smaller dudes
