The Clips won't mess this up.....right?

I didn't see any link on NBADraft.net, but I found a few on DoubleScribble.com that linked to different blogs in Oklahoma City saying that there was a chance that the Clippers would trade the No. 1 pick.

Now, I understand that they'd be crazy to not at least see what was out there, as far as trade offers, but you don't trade the top pick in a one-player draft...Unless you're the Clippers, I guess.

What would you put the odds of a trade at? I say 90/10 that they keep the pick.

not really

I think if the clippers can get rid of some big contracts...they would do it. If They could move down and still get a good player while cutting some cap ( Baron Davis, Zach Randoplh) they will do it.

I would keep the pick unless

I would keep the pick unless the Lakers or Cavs come with an offer of King James or the Black Mamba. Just think of the young core: Griffin at the 4, Gordan at the 2, and Thorton at the 3. Then you have your veterans of Davis and Camby. Randolph is untradable so just stick it out with him. And I havn't even mentioned DeAndre or Mike Taylor! The left out player is Kaman for sure, where do YOU see him going? Bulls for Hinrich? Dallas for expiring contracts?

Getting rid of Kaman

I can see Kaman being the odd man out for all the aforementioned reasons, but I don't put anything past Donald Sterling if you want to know what a bad owner is look in the dictionary and you'll see Mr.Sterling's picture.This is the same club that drafted the Candyman so it's hard to put anything past them.But Kaman could give they're team some leverage because almost every team needs to get bigger and when he's not hurt he is more than servicable.Dallas would be a good look considering they need a overhual and need to a true post to put alongside Dirk.I think Detroit could jump in there as well due to there abundance of cap space and they still have some good pieces never know.They might unload Camby if possible because they will have a logjam if they don't get rid of somebody to make room for Griffin if they don't trade down. Because if they keep the current roster they would stunt Deandre Jordan's growth he looks like he could be pretty decent ,him and BJ Mullens remind me of each other in the fact that they both underacheived in they're one year at school and need some NBDL playing time and closer to the middle of the season some real NBA playing time to see what you got especially in Jordan's case because he was a second round pick.

Amen

Amen, I agree Dunlevey has outlived his usefullness for that squad. I feel when a coach pretty much has total control for the most part and things go bad, he should go.He has no excuse for the condition this franchise is in.And somehow they get the number 1 pick and are in a spot where they could leap into the same catagory as OKC and the Blazers, young teams that are on the cusp of making the playoffs.But they would have to get rid of Camby or Randolph somehow, even if they use the same technique the Nuggets used in giving them Camby for a second round pick.Randolph is a prime canidate for this kind of trade or give away whichever term you prefer.
