To be honest all these rumors are making me CRAZY!!! But as a local from Compton, CA. I will list some ligitimate targets that should be targeted by the Clippers. SORRY but NO BIG TIME FREE AGENTS are COMING to the Clippers, check the history. They'll only come if they are on their last leg or looking for their last big contract...ie Baron davis.
Mind you the first option is quickly try and get Paul Pierce, he fits the mode of what the Clippers can afford a star player on his last leg, looking for his last big contract...hint, hint...plus he'll bring a ton of experience to a very young and upcoming team:
So lets look see what's available, this year's free agency will almost be like fantasy basketball take your pick:
The Clipper also need a taller backup at the two
Back up Power forward help in case the Terminator gets hurt again
Adding a third Big man at the center position would also make us deep
Center: Jermaine O'Neal now this would also be a great pick up cause he can play both slots and give insurance for the Terminator, Channing Frye another good option and B. Haywood
I understand you need to let the young guys play but to get over the hump bring in players that are ready to go
Point Guards: Nate Robinson, Shawn Livingston,
So In all the first target is get Pierce, next Jermaine O'Neal, Channing Frye, Al Harrington, Mike Miller and go from there don't waste your time on Restricted FA...and if all else fail save the money and get Melo next yr.
