Free Agency Starts; Clippers Reportedly Interested in Pierce, Ariza, Deng, Hawes, Davis

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

According to various reports, the Clippers are interested in signing or acquiring Paul Pierce, Trevor Ariza, Luol Deng, Spencer Hawes, and Ed Davis. They're also interested in retaining Darren Collison, Glen Davis, and Danny Granger.

It's the first night of free agency.  Everyone's interested in everyone, but these are the names the Clippers have been tied to so far:

I'm not going to do a ton of in-depth analysis on these rumors because they don't really mean anything at this time, but so far I approve of everyone on their list.  I don't really like Hawes but it sounds like he wants too much money anyway.

I'm not-so-secretly hoping for the Clippers to acquire both Ed Davis and Glen Davis, not only because that would be a solid pair of reserve bigs, but because it would be almost as good as the Paul Davis, Ricky Davis, Baron Davis trio of Clippers past.  Where is Paul Davis?  Can he be the Clippers third big?  I'll stop now.
