The Daily Clipper

Dear Clipper Nation,

I would like start by thanking our Fearless Leader, Steve Perrin, for asking me to contribute to Clips Nation Blog. It is my honor to create and post my first Daily Clipper, which includes an NBA fix for those who crave to learn of news floating around the League.

I have scoured the Internet searching for news related to our Clippers and other news making their way around the NBA. Three (3) trade rumors we might want to keep an eye on are the ones pertaining to Michael Beasley possibly going to Boston, Pau Gasol to Chicago (early stages in its infancy) and Amare Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler to Orlando.
