HoopsHype Randy Foye rumors

April 1, 2012 Updates

He could let the pressure of an uncertain future control his emotions, but Randy Foye won't succumb to those forces. Instead, the Clippers shooting guard said he will play the game he loves as he always has — with passion, joy and all out — and let everything work itself out. This is the final year of a contract that pays him $4.250 million. One would think Foye would be worried about how he performs during a contract year. "Naw, I try not to. Not at all," Foye said. "My whole thing is just playing ball. I'm just playing ball and letting everything happen." Los Angeles Times

Foye, 28, would love to re-sign with the Clippers, who hosted the Utah Jazz on Saturday night at Staples Center. He knows that's not a guarantee, but it's not something Foye is overly concerned about during this season. "It's already written. The story of Randy Foye is already written," he said. "I'm just fighting through whatever I have to fight through to get there. That's why I believe in God. I believe that whatever is needed God will take me there." Los Angeles Times

It was a huge game in that regard, the momentum continuing that could ensure Del Negro survives the season. Meanwhile, the players who had reportedly given up on him continued to come to his defense. "Everyone was on coach, saying that he lost the team, saying that guys are not responding to him," said Randy Foye, who had 20 points and hit a three-pointer with 47 seconds left to put the Clippers up 96-95. "None of that was true at all. We just stuck with it. We stayed behind coach. We understood that we had three in three days against a tough playoff team in Indiana, and then Oklahoma City, the No. 1 team. And then it was emotional when Chris [Paul] went back [to New Orleans, in a loss]. We understood that, but everybody else didn't. I think the main thing is just to stay together. Whenever you hit a little bit of adversity, stay together." SI.com

Despite being wildly inconsistent for the past two months and losing three games in three days last week, the Clippers have seemingly turned the corner when it matters most. “Everyone was on coach, saying he lost the team and saying the guys were not responding and none of that was true at all,” Randy Foye said. “We just stuck with it. We stayed behind coach. We understand we played three games in three days against tough playoff teams in Indiana and Oklahoma and had an emotional game in New Orleans when Chris went back. We understood all that but everyone else didn’t. The main thing is to stay together whenever you hit a little bit of adversity.” ESPN.com

Basketball is still the easy part. That could be printed on his business card. Sometimes life is a make-or-miss proposition, and the fact that he’s shooting 38 percent this season as a starting two-guard is irrelevant to him as long as he can consult the standings without cringing and suit up again tomorrow. "You know me — I’m not afraid to fail," Randy Foye said Wednesday night in the hallway opposite the visitor’s locker room at the Rock. "And even if I take a shot and make it, I’m going to be back in the gym tomorrow and take so many it was like I missed it. "I’m not going to pay attention to the numbers. A lot of guys — great players — are shooting under their averages this year. I’m just looking at the team record, and if I do something to help get the next ‘W,’ that’s all that matters. That’s what we play for." Newark Star-Ledger

So you realize, we told Foye, that you’re going from being a fourth guard to the guy that everyone is going to leave open in a tie game with two minutes left in a playoff game? That’s a burden for someone who has spent his life flouncing around Lotteryland. His five years in the pros have produced the following records: 32-50, 22-60, 24-58, 26-56, 32-50. That’s five seasons of 27-55. Foye laughed. "If you know my history, you know I’m mostly successful in the fourth quarters," he said, before proving it with nine of his 24 points in the final period. "It’s just basketball. Yeah, I’m still getting used to a new role, because I’m used to having the ball. And I’m not a spot-up guy. But I’m picking my spots. And when I’m open I’m letting it fly."

The Los Angeles Clippers won’t let the lockout interrupt their development. Last week, the young team held a minicamp in Los Angeles that lasted four days and included ten players. Blake Griffin and Mo Williams organized the workouts. Eric Gordon, Eric Bledsoe, DeAndre Jordan, Randy Foye, Ryan Gomes, Trey Thompkins, Travis Leslie, and Brian Cook were among the players in attendance. The players worked out for several hours each day and then spent time together off the court once the training sessions concluded. The team is improving their chemistry on and off the floor, and the workouts gave the two rookies, Thompkins and Leslie, an opportunity to meet their new teammates. HoopsWorld

According to Impact owner and renowned trainer Joe Abunassar, the Clippers' Blake Griffin, Mo Williams and Randy Foye came by last week and expressed a desire to enter the league with a team made up solely of their teammates. Oklahoma City center Nazr Mohammed is trying to convince Kevin Durant, James Harden and others to do the same, while Indiana's Dahntay Jones and Denver's Al Harrington are making similar pitches to their respective teams.

I interviewed Aminu before Oklahoma City Thunder game on April 2 (the huge comeback game), right after I listened to the VDN presser and found out that Randy Foye was going to start at small forward, not Al-Farouq Aminu. Aminu was slumped in his seat next to his locker, slowly snacking away at an apple. He answered my questions, just like he always, but he was clearly unhappy. When I asked him about Ryan Gomes being injured he only responded with an apathetic reply. “Gomes ain’t playing?” He went back to snacking at his apple. I asked him if he thought he would get more minutes with Gomes out. “Nah, not really. Never know what the rotations are, sometimes what’s his name plays… Randy Foye. So, being a rookie I just, whenever I’m out there, I’m out there.” ClipperBlog.com

Aminu clearly stressed the disconnect and/or disappointment between him and VDN, because VDN had just told the press that Foye would start, and his references to his teammate, Foye, were clearly dismissive. ClipperBlog.com
