Clippers Amnesty D Jordan
D Jordan's does not do anything particularly well besides dunk. Which in the long run will not help win a championship. I do not know how much potential the clips front office still think this guy has left but he puts up mild number in the regular season, free throw percentage is atrocious and those numbers consistently get worse in the playoffs. 10 million a year is a lot for him. I am thinking amnesty him and make a move for DHoward who would like to play with chris paul or Al Jefferson. if those two do not work out maybe start negotiations with timofey mozgov,express to him you want him to be your starter. His regular season numbers last show with new York and 2011-2012 with denzer he put up the close to the same numbers as deandre Jordan did in the 2013 post season with better free throw shooting meaning you can leave him in the fourth. I only detailed mozgov this much because well we all know without saying how much al or dhoward is a step up. Thoughts and critique for the amesty of Jordan?
Maybe next time you should mention it's your opinion on the header.
I think this goes without saying this is my opinion
The title reads as a fact not an opinion or rumor.
You deserve every neg for this post
I deserve every neg for this post? clarify your words please, I thought sharp shooters were intelligent
apologize roland for posting this under your comment but ill say apologize too all I forgot they amnestied gomes and I didn't understand they could only use amnesty once. but you guys are funny good debate
I think he just set a new record.
Did he set a new record? It should be. Whatever. I'm gone.
the only way the clips could get dwight is a sign and trade, and you can bet the lakers wont trade him to the clippers.
I get what your saying, but we know howard signing back with lakers is not a definite conclusion as of yet. the thing is Dwight is a free agent meaning he can sign with anyone. so my position is if the clipps amnesty the overpayed Jordan that leaves room to sign dhoward or al Jefferson.
That isn't how it works. They still wouldn't have the cap space to sign Dwight. They are paying CP3 20+ million a season and Griffin is making over 16 million a season. Add on to that they are still paying Crawford over 5 million and just brought in Reddick as well. So unless Dwight decides he wants to go play for the Clippers for a couple million a year this isn't going to happen.
Stupid title for your post. And I think he will improve under Doc Rivers..
now that is an opinion and he wont
Maybe before you make a thread like this you should do your research to see if the Clips can even use their amnesty.
They can't. They already used it on Ryan Gomes
I just did and you are right it is only once every time a new cba agreement is made. to be honest I just forgot they used it on gomes.
read and words will allow you to understand it is an opinion.
okay you guys want to jump on the opinion or fact thing. that's fine but point is get rid of Jordan a Siggy pointed out they already used their amnesty on gomes I forgot. maybe trade Jordan for a pick then someone else can amnesty him, then they can get howard or Jefferson hows that?
You don't know how this process works so just stop.
Amnesty is a one-time opportunity for teams to release one player via the waiver process and remove him from their team salary and luxury tax computations. For a player to be eligible for the Amnesty provision he must be on his team's roster continuously from July 1, 2011 to the date he is amnestied, without any new contract, extension, renegotiation or other amendment to his contract in the meantime. Players who were waived prior to July 1, 2011 and are still receiving guaranteed salary are also eligible. Teams cannot amnesty players they sign, receive in trade, extend, renegotiate, or otherwise amend after July 1, 2011.
They also still wouldn't have the cap room to sign a max player because the salary cap is about 58 million and even if they somehow moved Jordan without taking any salary back they would still only be a few million under the salary cap. It cannot and will not happen!
I said I forgot they amnestied gomes. plus you wrong they still owe the player money they just do not have to pay luxury tax
I know how it works...what I was attempting to explain is that you cannot trade for a player and then amnesty him. You are almost at -100 in only 14 posts so I am done trying to explain things to you. Your comprehension skills are clearly lacking.
only -100 you should call someone up and tellem to dislike some more of my posts
you already wrong someone else said you were wrong as well the only thing i was wrong about was they already used the amnesty ryan gomes which someone already made clear to me did you not say in your first post amnesty means waive the players salary. You did, i never said anything about the rules you guys blew that up i just forgot they already used it. simple mistake you guys serious with this hunh
Bro, I've never seen anyone in this site being disliked as much you are. My suggestion is stop posting and don't ever post again. Get a life.
Thank you for outlining this. There have been three different posts that call for the Knicks to amnesty Stoudemire even though NY already amnestied Billups in the beginning of the new CBA.
not how it works either. You have to have the player on your roster to amnesty them. Besides why would someone trade for a player (give up picks), be obligated to pay the salary and then dump that player?
THEY DON'T HAVE THE CAP SPACE TO SIGN ANYONE, WITH OR WITHOUT JORDAN.
The clippers wouldn't amnesty Jordan even if they could. Doc Rivers will help him develop his O, plus he's young...
-7 points per post...nice. Entering euroballer territory.
who or what is euroballer?
Nice answer.... who IS euroballer?... all I see is people mentioning him like he was basedgod.
yea yo i see if you align yourself against anything they say against me, even though i do not know who euroballer is so i can not say for sure it is negative or not, but they will neg you as well but glad you get where i was coming from on euroballer. still nobody will tell me what is that or who
who or what is euroballer?
They couldn't even amnesty Deandre Jordan in the first place, because they already used that option on Ryan Gomes
Wow 'Aivsdirk' you need to just stop.............you clearly have a poor grasp of spelling and grammar........you should address those before you launch into an amnesty idea for an NBA team. You clearly have no grasp of current NBA salary cap rules, contracts, potential or talent.
Focus on your fundamentals first kiddo. Grammar and spelling (specifically declarative vs. interrogative statements.) Then read up on NBA players and contracts.
Jordan has no potential in helping clippers move forward.
I might have forgotten clipps amnestified gomes and my title for my post did not wooh peoples desire. which seems to be the only reasons people have so much fire burning for me but I am pretty good at English.just to let you know interrogative means asking a question declarative means statement specifically kiddo
People keep negging you because you refuse to accept the 5 different reasons people have given you why this cannot happen. It is obvious you don't understand what the salary cap is or how it works.
then stop reading if anybody can read to this point i hope you go back and look at the times i said i forgot they already amnestied gomes which i manned up too if you can go in this unbiased then you will see most of these guys just want to say something negative. i feel like brian on family guy arguing with a million stueys.
okay even thought this person tried to correct me and got corrected I still get disliked, word keep it coming me against the masses
six people agreed with you,you tried seem smart and followed you meaning they do not understand types of sentences either sad, maybe 5 if you liked your comment yourself
NBADraft.net just amnestied aivsdirk. Good call?
I think YES.
another like to raef in your 4th plus courtesy of me
I believe ProudGrandpa would say this about Aivsdirk........."It is the empty tin that rattles most."
Your welcome 'ProudGrandpa' for the shout out :)!
hold up if its empty whats inside to make a loud rattle and if it was moving wouldn't something inside make it louder. blew your mind
Oh my actual god!!! It's a proverb!
1. *it's* contraction for "it is"
2. *what's contraction for "what is"
3. "...word keep it coming me against the masses" ...what?
Generally horrific lack of punctuation. Don't talk about being fairly good at English if your posts are barely legible.
Furthermore, for the eight-billionth time and to reiterate - they can't amnesty anybody else; they have already amnestied Gomes. Regardless of any method in which they could dump Jordan's contract, they would still be about 15 million a year short of cap space to offer Howard the max-deal he will obviously command. Ugghh.
you guys still on this the funny thing is im havin fun yall getting frustated. young blood did you catch the part where i already said i forgot they amnestied gomes. i think you did. plus "Generally horrific lack of punctuation is a sentence fragment." Maybe, you can ask the fictional wise uncle Drew to help you on yours and with mines. lets go
Oh man, I'm, like, a big deal now, like, OMG. Thank you, sir
lol dude -410 just from all your input on these posts man
I have not seen this type of destruction since the days of 4th dimension
you sir are a tool
