Willie Warren to Bakersfield

22

Mood not good from Willie? Not sure why. At least he's getting playing time, hopefully. Quick thoughts on this... This is the first time the Clippers have ever assigned a player to the D-League. Other teams have had some success with these assignments; it will be interesting to see how Willie responds. A couple of games ago I asked Vinny if Warren might get some minutes given Rasual's struggles. His answer, as you can see by both WW's playing time and by this reassignment, was 'Nope.' He said that Warren was "inexperienced... really inexperienced." Of course, that answer is a catch-22 - there's only way to get real experience. But the bottom line seemed to be that even in practice Warren had not shown VDN any reason that he needed to get into a game. What's interesting about this is that they are taking Gordon on the trip, but not Warren. It means, until Gordon, Kaman and/or Smith suit up, the Clippers will have only 10 players in uniform. You'd think they'd want Warren along if only for injury insurance while three guys are already out hurt. Does Warren's banishment indicate that Gordon really is close to playing? Don't know. Steve
