Who’s ready to trade Dudley?
He was not completely useless tonight. In fact, he did made some timely shot when Clippers were in scoring drought.
Come on, man, he’s been injured for the majority of the season. His efficiency is down because he apparently can barely bend one of his knees (which is also hampering him on defense).
Have some patience; he’ll come around.
I’d rather trade him than Crawford but its too early to trade anyone.
Darren Collison is starting to look like a legit player again. His shot is back (for the most part), which has really helped open things up for him. His defense also looks much better in the past few games.
What did you guys think of Bullock tonight? I was very impressed by his defense. lost his man only once on a bunch if screens, and other than that he was superb. Shut down his man, disrupted the ball handler.
Collison is looking better. Less dumb plays seems to be the key to Collison playing well.
Bullock was good, and if he plays like that he probably will get some Collison-Crawford-Bullock-Barnes-Mullens/Hollins line ups appearing. Then again Bullock wasn’t really defending amazing small forwards tonight.
Fair enough. It seems to me that Bullock has a real chance to break into the rotation next season (if not this season) which is great, although it means that crowded wing depth will become an issue. He’s a classic 3&D guy right now, he just isn’t very experienced shooting the NBA 3 and guarding bigger NBA wings, which could get sorted out as he gets more playing time.
We will see a lot of him on Durant tomorrow, for better or worse.
Today’s my birthday!
It was first suggested that Jamal Crawford would have to be traded in order to get a true defensive big man. But Jared Dudley hasn’t been playing well. Could he be traded instead?
idk why some team would take a player you believe is playing bad, dont want and expect them to give you someone decent in return
Because you packaged said player with a future first round draft pick.
can you give me an example of a player you would like?
Sacramento has some intriguing options that they are publicly shopping. A player like Patrick Patterson, who would be more reliable then either hollins or mullens, might be had for two future second round picks+bledsoe trade exception+wayns(I think that works but if trade exceptions don’t work in this sense then swap it for willie green).
A better option might be a player like Spencer Hawes, Zaza Pachulia or Glen Davis, who eventually will be shopped by there teams. The way I figure is if we trade bigger contract (Crawford or Dudley basically) +contract matching benchwarmers+1st round pick we can pick up a legitimate backup big man+2nd round draft pick. A 2nd round draft pick from a crappy team will be about 10 spots lower than our first round pick, so the player we end up getting might not actually be much worst. Low end first round picks are pretty overvalued in my personal opinion.
Its all hypothetical though but thats the only way that Jared Dudley could be traded to a team for a player that is better than him. I don’t think its necessary at this point though.
It’s dawn to me that whenever players have a rough stretch, fans tend to yell “Trade them” without being patience about it. I never recalled when trading a player will solve the team’s woo.
How can Lamar Odom and Antawin Jamsion be factor in the rotation?
What you think about Hollins lately? He look pretty sharp tonight.
Blake Griffin look dominant tonight. What’s your opinion on Blake recently with his offensive aggression?
when does paul’s double double streak end…never?
When the Clippers face the Bobcats for the first time and blow them out.
What happened to Barnes, Matt Barnes?
Kwame Brown was just cut. Sign him and Lamar and all of our back up front court problems will be solved.
i dont think dj wining def player of the year but he can sure as hell win improved player and lead the legue in reb espually offensive reb
Yeah unfortunately for DeAndre Roy Hibbert is having one of the best defensive performances ever. Unless Hibbert gets injured I don’t see deandre winning.
Luv Blake’s power game inside baby inside all the way best PF in the game – JJ Redick is much better than Billups last year a complete upgrade not as good defensively as Bledsoe or even Green we need another wing player that is athletic strong make open shots play great defense – Bullock good game just need 2 shoot 10 foot shots with soft touch or use backboard more often solid defense CP3 like the key steals and defense more than the big shots in 4th quarter keep up defense DJ regressing a little on defense I know he is playing tough opponents but I feel he can bring a more intense effort every night does not have a heavy burden 2 carry just man the paint better
