    Or something.

    Poor Wiz. They seem to be declining this offseason.

    If Clippers can resign DJ, they'll look awfully scary next year.

    Not only will they have added Lance, who was terrible last year, but should still be a vast improvement over an aging and limited Matt Barnes.

    Now they've added Paul "i called game" Pierce. Yes he is old, yes he lost a step or two, but damn the man can still play. At the very least he's going to be tons better than Turkolu or Austin Rivers.

    Clippers having a nice offseason. If they could get rid of Crawford contract, it'll be even better.

    Why cant more elite/useful players move east where I'm not rooting for any team!

    Winning the West might be even crazier next year!

    Warriors - The 67 win Champs!
    OKC - Durant/westbrook/Ibaka/Kanter
    Spurs - POP, Duncan, Leonard, Ginobli, Parker & possibly Aldridge!??
    Clippers - CP3, Blake, DJ?, Pierce, Stephenson, Crawford, Reddick!

    Thats not even including the Rockets with Harden/Howard & whoever else Morey gets
    or the Gasol/randolph/Conley Grizzlies!

    This signing concerns me more than most
    Pierce is a CLOSER
    Kind of Wish the Rockets would have gotten him

    If it nets them a title next year, they won't care if he's broken down the next two.

    It's only 3.3 million per year. With the ballooning cap, that money won't mean much over the last two years.

    Third year is a team option so they really are only on the hook for the first two. Just like Lance Stephenson who the Clippers have a team option for 2016 as well. Lance has one year to bounce back or the Clippers can drop $9M off their team salary. The good thing is that he will be motivated if he wants to get paid.

    With Pierce, it would have been more ideal if he signed for Vet minimum so the Clippers could use their mini-Mid Level on a backup center or even a starting center if Deandre leaves. Now they need to try and trade Jamal Crawford for that player.

    Pierce did take 1/2 of what Washington was offering so he can finish his career where he grew up so I guess the Clippers and Pierce met half-way with this mini-Mid-level contract.
