Who do you think the Clippers should draft?

If they get the #1, most people would say Blake Griffin. However, if they don't, would they then draft Rubio even though they have b-diddy and his big contract? Rubio imo would be the best fit of all the prospects for them. What do you think?

Rubio possibly Jennings

I agree due to the fact that b-diddy has been plagued with injuries and they already have plenty of bigs (Camby, Kaman, Randolph, and a young prospect Jordan) I dont know if any of their contracts expire but it seems that they have filled every position with a star or prospect (SG-Gordon, SF-Thornton) and what they could use is an insurance or very good back-up for Davis. I would lean more towards Rubio though because Jennings has struggled against older pros.

Jennings

I haven't seen A LOT of Jennings, but I feel he will fit better in the Clippers system compared to Rubio.

Jennings is more of a run

Jennings is more of a run and gun all the time pg like baron who is having problems in their current system so i would think rubio who is better in the half court than jennings would be a better fit.

what a hard choice

On paper, the clippers should be good, shouldnt they? At guards they have Davis and Gordon- gordon is under a rookie contract and davis is getting paid everything under the sun and no other team will trade for him. Thornton mans the 3 and he is young and not going anywhere. They do have a bunch of bigs- Camby/randolph/kaman, but they are all injury risks. I say if they get a top 5 pick they draft Griffin or Hill, just for more frontcourt depth.

clean house

They should try to clean house and try to get rid of all those ugly contacts (randolph, kaman, etc. ) instead of taking them on from teams like the knicks. Then they should draft a big such as a blake griffin or jordan hill to build around with Eric Gordon who is a flat out stud. Keep Thornton, and Camby can be that veteran influence. Get rid of dunleavy who is holding BD back and you have a promising core.

Clippers need to trade!

The Clippers as many say are supposed to be good... They're not! Through the awesome ESPN NBA Trade Machine, I found some trades that would work to help them. As for the draft, go with Ricky Rubio. This trade is not real......it's what I think should happen.

Atlanta trades:
Joe Johnson-----Los Angeles
Josh Smith-----Toronto
Toronto trades:
Andrea Bargnani-----Atlanta
Chris Bosh-----Los Angeles
Los Angeles trades:
Mardy Collins-----Atlanta
Baron Davis-----Toronto
Zach Randolph-----Atlanta

In the end....
Atlanta receives:Andrea Bargnani, Mardy Collins, & Zach Randolph
Toronto receives:Josh Smith & Baron Davis
Los Angeles receives:Chris Bosh & Joe Johnson

On paper

On paper the Clippers have a nice looking squad with no true weaknesses. They should probably go with whoever the best prospect available on their draft board. If they do aim at a position it should be a pf/c or a backup point guard. They should either trade the pick or do what I said above.
