Now we have Al Thorton....it is likely Maggette will be traded. We have no chance for Garnett. J. O'Neal is probably not a good idea. Allen is gone, so Paul Pierce will likely stay. Who else can we trade Maggette for? AK47? Sign and Trade someone like G. Wallace?

its too late. We could have had wright or allen today alone.

Pretty much the teams who realized they had to make changes stepped up and did it. while the clippers fell asleep at the wheel.

trade him for steve francis, he is reunited with mobley and maybe could get his career back on track. you also get a pg and i think it is worth the risk to trade for him.

francis
mobley
thornton
brand
kaman

not bad at all...

Guys on the Trail Blazer board are talking about maybe a J.Jack and Pryzbilla for Maggette trade. Or either Webster or Outlaw?

Francis for Maggette would be even better! But LA would have to throw in some other players to match up the contracts, which makes the deal difficult because I dont think Portland wants to take on more players/contracts.

Whatever, go ahead, just take him already. i don't care anymore, don't even give us a player in return, we'll take cash or maybe a 2025 2nd rounder will do.

Jack and pryzbilla would be great if the salaries matched up. Pryzbilla, a blocking and rebounding specialist would be a dunleavvy type guy. actually with the roster portland has there are TONS of guys id consider.

Send him to NY for QRich and a 2nd Round pick or two. Q will give us someone who can play the OffGuard position, along with the SF position, and help spread the floor. On top of that, Quentin has an exceptional post up game for a wing player, and can rebound.

No, I don't want him because he's my favirote player, I want him because he would be an awesome fit on our squad right now, and, when healthy, can be an amazing role player.

Horrible trade idea, Qrich is way more injury prone than Maggette now, and has regressed quite a bit in his game. He blew up his stats in Phoenix (but who doesn't?), since then he's been look bad & overpaid, just like his buddy Miles.

In the past two seasons, Maggette has played just 1.5 game per each season, go back an additional year, and Quentin plays about 5 more games per season, so I really don't see the more injury prone argument, oh yeah, and Q was on a team that has so much more talent, even at the wings. Q actually has an all around game, and unlike Corey, doesn't constantly whine and ***** about playing time to the point he'll kill the team chemistry.

Getting Monta Ellis would be encouraging. A really good trade would be if we could get both Ellis & Pietrus from Golden State.

Maggette would be a great replacement for Richardson in their immediate future.

I'd love to see Matt Barnes on this team, but it just makes no sense with the glut of SF/PF's we got.

Qrich:
05/06: 55 games, 8ppg, 4rpg, 2ast, 26min
06/07: 49 games, 13ppg, 7rpg, 2ast, 33min

Maggette:
05/06: 32 games, 18ppg, 5rpg, 2ast, 30min
06/07: 75 games, 17ppg, 6rpg, 3ast, 30min

Clipper's medical staff had a lot to do with Corey Maggette's injury last year, starting with misdiagnosis. Even with that, he made a solid recovery, Qrich has had 2 bad injury seasons in a row.

Maggette is a FAR more effective scorer, rebounding is similar, assists are similar, minutes are similar. I don't really care if a guy has a good "all around game", we need scorers, plain and simple. Maggette + another scorer would be ideal, since we often have trouble breaking 100... but it looks like we're forced to trade him and still have trouble getting into the 90's.

And you know very well that when Maggette starts, he's a superior player to Qrich, i know he's your favorite guy, but we'd be getting ripped off in that trade.

lets get brewer from minnesota...maggette+thornton for brewer+james/jaric

would that work salary wise???
Wouldn't be a bad idea, I don't like James tho, he always seems to have trouble fitting with any team even though he's good individually.

I think it'd work and i'd really like Brewer on our team, but wouldn't it be strange to have Jaric back??

James is a Rocket, they traded him for Juwan Howard. Jaric won't come back to the Clippers, just don't think he will, and I don't like that trade, plus, Minnesota would push for us to take Hudson or give their pick back, so no dice.

that would be interesting, although wed probably have to throw in another salary in order to get it to match whatever lewis wants in the sign and trade.

Not sure if seattle does that though.

how about maggette and Thorton for Rashard lewis?
Sounds like a good idea, he'd definitely help our outside shooting and nearly as good at penetration as Maggette.

I've always liked the Maggette for Lewis swap, he's like Paul Pierce-lite. If he can be signed for below $60, it's a good trade.
