OK, so Kaman doesn't really fit into the young, new clippers. He's a solid post player, but isn't able to adjust to the faster pace. If he's traded to Philadelphia, he'd be reunited with Elton Brand, which appears to be the best situation for both guys! They desperately need someone better than Spencer Hawes and they'd have to pay for Kaman's trade kicker, but his contract is 2 years shorter.

Iguodala has long been considered a "do-it-all" player, who doesn't excel at anything and isn't exactly a good #1 option, but he has virtually no weaknesses in his game. He's quite an exceptional athlete, still only 27 years old (3 more years left on his contract), and wouldn't fit in great in our SF slot. Where he would start & occasionally slide over to SG when Gordon is taking over PG duties. There would also be no need for him to be a #1 or #2 option, as Griffin & Gordon can take care of the scoring load, and Iguodala would just be counted on for great defense, occasionally putting up 20 points, rebounding and LEADERSHIP.

Iguodala has already proven he can take a team to the playoffs, which is what the clippers need most: a veteran leader who leads by example! We'd still need help at C, but it's better to just let Kaman move on & let Jordan keep dunking away!

Potential Lineup:

PG: Bledsoe
SG: Gordon
SF: Iguodala
PF: Griffin
C: Jordan

Well, if someone would suggest an offer that would be more reasonable, i'd like to hear it. Would Kaman + 2012 1st rounder be enough?

I haven't been watching as much basketball as i used to, so i'm not really sure what the market for Centers is anymore, they're usually way overvalued by GMs.
