Eric Pincus on his twitter feed suggested that we should trade Baron to Charlotte for Dampier's expiring contract. Other than saving Donald some money, I don't really see the point-- we're already 10M under the cap, which is more than enough flexibility to sign the remaining second-tier FAs out there.
I suppose we could use the $13M we save on Baron's salary in 2011-12 to go after a max FA next summer-- but honestly, based on what happened this year, I don't think someone like Melo is going to consider the Clippers until we post at least a .500 record-- which will be more likely with Baron than without. Besides, if we need cap space next year, Kaman will be fairly easy to deal in the last year of his contract (as will Baron in 2012-13 during the last year of his contract).
Anyway, just wondering if anyone in Clips Nation thinks getting rid of Baron in a pure salary dump is a good idea.
