Nice post by Eric Pincus but you gotta work past the Lakers stuff to get to the creamy center regarding the Clips reasoning in signing Jamal Crawford:
"To put the brakes on Crawford when neither Allen nor Lee was a lock, thus potentially losing out on all three, the Clippers went with the bird in the hand... Crawford was a player they targeted for a reason and one they’re happy to have."
He has Crawford on three fully guaranteed years, a partial in the fourth. He also believes Nick Young's not out of the picture just yet:
"Additionally the Clippers can look to either re-sign guard/forward Nick Young to play backup three behind Caron Butler or look to use him in a sign and trade."
