State of the (Clipper) Nation Address.

lac-salaries

Yes, it’s that time already. When looking at the players returning next season, I’d like to point out some things:

  • Ricky Davis WILL pick up his player option (he’d be an idiot not to).
  • Steve Novak must be resigned, by all means.
  • If there’s a reasonable offer for Chris Kaman on the table, the Clippers MUST consider it.

Ten guys will be signed up for next year. Novak would make 11. That leaves four open roster spots, in which one will be a lottery pick. So with the projected three open spots, who should the Clippers go after? Keep in mind that the Clippers will only have the mid-level exception to work with. Here is a short list of candidates I’d like to see them consider:

  • Flip Murray (U)
  • Marvin Williams (R)
  • Leon Powe (R)
  • Raymond Felton (R)
  • Drew Gooden (U)
  • Anderson Varejao (U)
  • Brandon Bass (U)
  • Gerald Green (U)
  • Linas Kleiza (R)
  • Marquis Daniels (U)
  • Trevor Ariza (U)
  • Ramon Sessions (R)
  • Charlie Villanueva (R)
  • Rashad McCants (R)
  • Rodney Carney (U)
  • Nate Robinson (R)
  • Keith Bogans (U)
  • Matt Barnes (U)
  • Bobby Brown (R)
  • Jamario Moon (R)
  • Ronnie Price (U)

(U) = Unrestricted; (R) = Restricted

Now, some of those guys will demand more than the MLE, but I just wanted to throw it out there. Obviously guys like Sheed, J-Kidd, and Paul Millsap will command much more than the MLE, so I didn’t bother with them. Out of the above  list, who do you think the Clips should and/or will obtain?

  1. […] State Of The (Clipper) Nation Address: My buddy, Dave, from Terry Dehere For The Win (a huge Clipper fan) is already looking forward to next season. There are a few roster spots open for next year so which ones can the Clips realistically get? Like Trevor Ariza would dare switch halls… […]
