I know this is MP's bailiwick (Saturday moren spelling, vocabulary, and etymology challenge), but while he basks in the glow of his radio appearance, there are a few "newsClips" (!) over at HHRumors.
--Clips made a 12:01 offer to Udrih. He wanted some kind of option in the last year of the deal, and as they went to check on that, the BD scenario started playing out and Udrih quickly went to Sac and took their offer. Conspiracy theorists might want to add the info to their timeline.
--Clips had to renounce rights to Paul Davis to make the offer to Azu. There's some previous discussion about Davis and free agency by the same writer at the Sporting News, but I didn't look for it. There are some obvious questions about Davis' status, starting with the progress of his rehab.
--But my favorite are details about the Randolph trade proposal. The wording of the discussion is kind of amusing, and we can follow up and discuss (have to get to yoga), but it says something like: "those criticizing the Knicks for not unloading Randolph for nothing, need to know that the Clippers didn't want nothing"--they wanted a first round pick (the Knicks don't have a lot of those), $3 million, and for the Knicks to take Brevin Knight (called Brandon Knight in the article). Huh? Begs the question of what's more than nothing? It's all backwards.
More evidence that the Clips have been out there playing hardball.
