Charlie just keeps contradicting himself and saying strange things that make no sense. Terrico White is not an undersized shooting guard. He says T. White would be a good talent to develop, but doesn’t fit the roster. Then, he goes on talking about how the Clippers need to have young talent saved up to develop for when salaries are too high or old players go down. o_O
I know you have a man crush on TW but…
Charlie obviously liked him its just theres no spot for him on the team. Theres only 15 spots on a team and 12 are filled. One of those will probably be used on bobby Simmons(read an La Times article saying they were trying to earlier). The clippers also seem to be looking to sign another guard/trade for another guard(maybe bobby simmons is the backup option if deals for willie green or marco bellinelli fall through) . There really will be no spots for summer league team. And if there is 1 it will probably need to be used on a forward or center.
Its not that terrace isn’t good its the fact that he plays guard a position that we have more than filled…
Exactly what Patrick said.
I agree however i would sign white and cut travis leslie.
Yes, exactly, contradictory and makes makes no sense. Why would there be no spot if they’re looking for another guard? How exactly is a 6’5″ 215 lbs. guy with a 6’9″ wingspan in any way an undersized shooting guard?
The only big in our summer league roster that should have any chance of getting signed is Hubbard. He’s another freakish athlete that can hit a 3.
He’s undersized in that the next guard they need should be able to slide over to the 3. I do not understand why you are so hung up on this. I like Terrico White as a prospect, he just doesn’t fit.
terrico fits charlie…look at the roster…lol…which chauncy still a question mark…and travis leslie’s jumper non existent, terrico who can shoot defend and play some 3 (he is bigger than foye who did it, and bigger than leslie…not to mention that he played some three in the SL) it doesn’t make sense to let a talent that has THAT much upside go…he fits.
also how in the heck do they target Willie Green’s sorry self and not keep Terrico…that makes no sense…he is bigger than Willie Green too…you say that he doesnt fit…but then talk about willie green…HUH??? explain the logic please?
Morrison, Armstrong (can’t stand hubbard), and White have legit shots at the actual roster.
any truth to Greg Anthony saying the Clips have already signed Adam?
Yes, as J7 pointed out, he fits. I’m hung up on this because you make no sense Charlie. How can you like the 6’5″ Courtney Lee who weighs 15lbs less, and then call T.White undersized? The Clippers need a backup 2 that can play at 3. That’s why everyone loved Courtney Lee and there’s no reason why T.White couldn’t do the same, except way deeper into the depth chart now that we have Crawford and Hill. A young guy like White would be developed and be a last ditch option if Billups, Crawford, and Hill all go down. Then, if he did play he would not be expected to do big things, just D and 3 which he is more than capable of doing.
the most pressing need is 4 backup wing player that is quick around 6ft. 7 that can be combo guard small forward that is young, great defender and strong
If the Clippers sign Willie Green, it tells you that Billups isn’t close to being ready to play. Hence the question of why did the Clippers give a player who cant play over 3 million, plus a no trade clause?
I’m saddened by this ridiculous list I am reading about being thrown around. Some of these names are hilarious Willie green? GTOH with that dumbness! Why on earth would we sign proven wackness when we have better players available. TWhite is better than Willie Green from a pure basketball standpoint. He is also younger more athletic and technically a better shooter. Morrison is better then Bellineli not to mention Marco is 6’5″ and Adam is 6’8″. Adam boards and can create for himself both off ball and off bounce. Marco on the other hand has a nice spot up game but absolutely does not reb. Armstrong has more polish and repertoire than most bigs we would get for the same value monetarily. Its about fit and need and the last pieces we need are a bonafide shooter (Morrison) an athletic wing 1/2/3 (White, who even played sf in spots during the SL), a back up big who can stretch the floor and make free throws and face up from 12-15 feet. (not only does Armstrong have some vet nasty swag, but he is athletic and can thrive as a fifth option. I’d bet 100 rubles that Hilton would see more 4th quarter action than DJ and Hollins combined). Hilton come from a high pedigree who has a national championship ring as well as deep playoff runs with our own CP3.
This is simple, three guys fighting their way back as the Clippers organization is as a whole. Three guys who out of the league either a) by fading into obscurity after a promising start like Hilton, or fighting back from previous industry. Terrico(Broken foot)/Morrison (Knee). Either way they have shown the have NBA talent and I think by sitting our bench and playing hard will called upon, these are the three the fans will love the most. I hope the GM-Bot we have is paying as much attention as I am.
Let me apologize early for the “iphonic” grammar and spell check. I’m still getting used to this damn thing.
If the Clippers sign Green its just proves the main objective is signing Chris Paul, making the environment conducive for signing Chris Paul, with players that Chris Paul wants to play basketball with, which is why Green has a better chance of signing with the Clippers than all these other guys on the Developmental Summer squad. Personally, I like T-White, but I need guys coming here, who Chris Paul brought here, so next year, when Chris Paul is trying to determine where to go, he’ll have a bunch of guys here who he brought here, telling him something. Chris Paul has class and dignity, and he actually will look himself in the mirror, and unlike Elton Brand, I don’t think Chris Paul is going to turn his back on players that he lobbied to come play here, and just go to New York, or Atlanta.
Hilton IS one of CP’s guys! Willie Green stinks and is short lol.
