Look At All These Rumors That’s Surrounding Me Everyday…

"We have a lot in common - we're both injury prone and disinterested. Let's go on a date."

Yep, it’s that time of year. Time for the countless trade rumors to swirl in, out, and through nearly every team in the League. And as usual, the Clips are no exception.

In years past, the Clippers have made relatively minor trades at the deadline (i.e. Wilcox for Vlad Rad) and have passed on blockbuster deals (i.e. Livingston + Maggette for Iverson). This time around, the two names that are circulating are Baron Davis and Chris Kaman. As many of you know, Boom Fizzle has been a huge disappointment to Clipper Nation and after half a season, just doesn’t seem to care anymore (of course, Dunleavy has a huge part in that). Kaman, on the other hand, has earned the unwelcome status of being injury prone. The guy can’t play a full season to save his life. Now, onto the rumors that have been circulating:

  • Baron for Maggette/Williams rejected? – Some dude on the RealGM Warriors board said ESPN stated the Warriors rejected the Clips’ offer. A definite desperation move on both parties if it did happen. And why would Dunleavy want Maggs back?
  • Baron/Kaman for J. Kidd? – Again, another rumor that was supposedly reported on ESPN News. Obviously the Mavs would have to throw in more player(s) for the salaries to match. An absolute idiotic deal on the Clippers part if done. It’s a foregone conclusion that the aging Kidd will leave after this season anyway.
  • Kaman for Amare? – Just speculation since the Suns are shopping him. Of course it would be a multiple player deal, possibly a 3 team trade.  Obtaining him would give us some serious firepower in the frontcourt.
  • Kaman to Chicago? – Bulls fans want a big man, badly. Amare and Kaman seem to be their top targets. If Kaman could be had for Thomas/Hinrich, I think you’ve gotta consider that.

We’ll know for sure once Feb. 19th hits. I just pray for NO stupidity on our part.
