Clippers Two-Deep: 1. C.Paul – J.Farmar 2. J.Redick – J.Crawford 3. M.Barnes – J.Dudley 4. B.Griffin – G.Davis 5. D.Jordan – S.Hawes
Unless Clippers can move a Matt Barnes, Jared Dudley, Reggie Bullock or - yipes Jamal Crawford, limited options otherwise - just 2 min vets
LAC already have SFs in Barnes and Dudley on roster. If trade market on them was cool, what choice do you have but to improve elsewhere
Think adding a 3rd big was more important than upgrade at SF. A Jared Dudley bounce-back season is certainly a possibility.
Clippers can save full mid-level by doing a sign-and-trade with Cleveland for Hawes. A possibility could be Dudley, Bullock and a pick.
Clips could upgrade at SF, although Barnes has been great for them. The injuries to Redick & Dudley's ineptitude really hurt them.
Thing about SnT's, all 3 parties have to agree (both teams, player signing). Would Cavs want Barnes/Dudley? Would Clips offer better?
Nets not interested in players Clippers proposing (J Dudley, M Barnes, Reggie Bullock) in sign-&-trade for Paul Pierce, source says
As I've mentioned before, the Clippers continue to shop Jared Dudley and Matt Barnes as they look to upgrade at small forward.
Clippers have been shopping Matt Barnes and Jared Dudley around. Again, upgrading small forward position is a priority for Rivers.
Yes, LeBron or Melo could be traded to the Clippers for a package of Jordan, Crawford, Dudley & picks but can't see Heat or Knicks doing it.
The chances of Miami trading LeBron to the Clippers for a package of Jordan, Crawford, Dudley and a pick are even more remote.
If a team is standing in the way of the Clippers getting LBJ - because of Jared Dudley - they're going to hard ball on Dudley
For instance - if Clippers dumped DJ, Crawford, Dudley for zero salary back (not easy) - just $10.1 mil in space
