    Key signing! KD to LAC ASAP.

    Dude needs to move out of his Daddy's house.

    But seriously great chance to continue learning from CP3.

    He probably got a player option in 2 years like his other contract and theyll just ride this carousel all over again.

    Clippers hostage to the Rivers family. Austin is not worth $8m/yr, even with the cap increase. And I'm not sure whether Doc is worth his huge package either.

    I hope interest started and stopped at canvassing the free agent list. If there was a legitimate offer from Houston, then Morey and Les have, in fact, completely lost their minds.

    Maybe this is a signal that Jopat will finally get to rub out the big one and the Rockets end up with a PG comparable to Rivers in Rubio.
