Matt Barnes(Yes I hate him too)

Seems likely that Leslie won't make the roster this year.

Among the remaining free agents there are:

Adam Morrison

Terrence Williams

Mickael Pietrus

Jodie Meeks

Martell Webster

Matt Barnes

Chris Douglas-Roberts

Adam Morrison is currently a fan favorite after a dazzling Summer League but the Clippers team is already impressive in terms of offense. However, the team's individual and team defense is sub-par. Williams, Pietrus, Webster, and Douglas-Roberts are all options of both defence and some offense. However, it is unlikely that they will want to be a 12 man on the roster for a vet's minimum as Meeks had a prominent role in the Sixers, Martell was paid 5 million the year before, Pietrus and Williams played major minutes last season, and Douglas-Roberts would stick overseas for the money.


Matt Barnes is a viable candidate. Yes his sense on offense sucks and he runs around without purpose sometimes but his defense is definitely one of the best in the class of wing players. He can be streaky behind the 3 point line but he would be after Butler and Hill. He wants to win more championships at this age and would be willing to take the Vet's minimum. With Butler, Hill, and Barnes playing continuous pressure defense on the opponent, the Clippers would definitely slow down, if not seal, the opponent 2 or 3.

It does make the team older but there aren't any young defensive wings that are as renowned. Plus it seems as though the team wants to win NOW in order to keep Paul. Thoughts and opinions? Please don't say "He was a Faker!!!" its kinda obvious
