    THIS!!! So simple people. Don’t worry about Clint. I’m focused on whatever trick Morey is trying to play at the moment. Something is coming. Maybe not a huge move, but a drastic upgrade to our situation is coming.

    It’s baffling that intelligent basketball fans can’t see the basic business logic that Clint is here regardless even if he a max. I’m with you

    After cutting that first direct deposit for CP3, here's what they're up to:

    Sneaking into the Clippers locker room, to see if there is anyone left that can play small forward.

    That's not at all funny and I'll see if Clutch thinks it is.

    wtf how did Sam Presti sign Nerlens Noel to backup Steven Adams after already having a 150+mil lux tax. This is ridiculous.

    3.5mil deal over 2 years. wow...

    for 3.5mil over 2 years, he should've came to the Rockets. CP3 and Harden would've fed him non-stop like they do Capela.... instead he chose to go to OKC, Presti must be a genius at convincing people.

    calling everyone and their sister about taking Ryno in trade for a Small Forward then resigning Clint. No way they let Clint walk.

    "Hey you wanna play for $5 million?"

    I don't think that call will go well.

    He may end up stuck taking an MLE level offer.

    Seriously! Now that he's UFA, why not go after him? He will be a perfect PF for us for when we're missing our 3s, we can rely on him to get us some buckets in the paint.

    They're trying to put together a trade to get rid of Ryno and get at least something back for losing EG, and finding out that nobody wants Ryno's washed-up behind AND lose an important piece.
