Would have never let him have the dual roles. Be a head coach or VP. Choose or get to steppin'.

This is actually a smart move, but some people have egos.

Bye.

Doc took advantage of that whole Sterling mess and a new inexperienced owner. Can't blame him for that as it helped put him in a position few coaches in NBA history have been able to obtain. The problem is, not many of those few coaches were able to successfully manage both positions.

Now that Ballmer's has a few years of experience, he knows he gave Doc too much power. It was a perfect time to make this move on the heels of CP3's departure and rumors about showing favoritism to his son. Now Ballmer's free to fire him whenever he wants.

Ah, classic Doc. Right up there with his greatest hits, such as "take Eric Bledsoe, all I want is JJ Reddick and Jared Dudely," and "here take Jared Dudley, I didn't really want him afterall."

Don't do it, Stevie! C'mon man, Doc's a champ. He wants to shake hands with you and "touch rings."

Clippers’ center Willie Reed arrested on domestic violence charge


New Clipper reserve center, who played last season for the Heat, was arrested on Sunday in Miami on a battery charge tied to domestic violence, reports the Miami Herald.

Miami-Dade jail records show Reed, 27, who signed with the Los Angeles Clippers last month, was still in jail as on 7:30 a.m. He was charged with misdemeanor battery.

Details about the alleged crime were not immediately available.

Reed, who is working out in Miami this offseason, was arrested at 3 a.m. Sunday and is expected to be in court later in the day on the battery charge, at that time he can post the $1,500 bond and get out of jail. Obviously, there will be future court dates, how many and when depend upon how the case progresses (without details it’s difficult to comment further).

In addition to the legal system, Reed could face a suspension from the league if found guilty, Darren Collison was given a lenient eight games last season, former Hornet Jeff Taylor got 24 games back in 2014. However, the new CBA calls more than just punishment for abusers, it calls for them to get counseling, potentially intervention, and resources to deal with whatever the issues to prevent this violence in the future.

Reed played 71 games as a backup center, and occasional starter, for the Heat last season. Reed was one of many players who saw how much players were paid last summer, when the salary cap spiked, and thought he could cash in. Instead, he settled for a one-year minimum deal with the Clippers after the Heat had moved on after drafting Edrice Adebayo and planning to play a little smaller at times next season.

Smart move, Doc doesn't have the vision for today's game.

Quote:
Details of Clippers’ Willie Reed domestic violence charge come out


On Thursday, the Clippers formally signed Willie Reed to a minimum contract to back up DeAndre Jordan next season in Los Angeles.

Sunday morning, Reed was arrested in Miami on a battery charge tied to domestic violence against his wife. Reed spent some time in jail then was released on $1,500 bail for the misdemeanor charge.

Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel has details on the charges.

According to the arrest report, Reed grew upset after his wife told him that she wanted a divorce, with an argument following on the balcony of the condo. A struggle then ensued, when Reed’s wife took her purse and her husband attempted to take it away….

Reed’s wife said she was knocked to the ground while attempting to take her purse. Jasmine Reed said Willie Reed also grabbed her by the shirt, hair, wrist and arm. She said she then struck her husband with a glass candle.

According to the arrest report, Jasmine Reed, “had red marks on her left wrist, right bicep, the right side of her chest and her back and swelling on her left foot.”

This all took place in the presence of the couple’s young child, according to the report. As part of his release, Reed is not allowed to contact his wife.

Brodrick Turner at the Los Angeles Times contacted Reed’s attorney, who said that his client did not hit his wife in the incident.

Reed’s attorney, David Oscar Markus, added that, “Willie will continue to cooperate with the authorities, the Clippers, and with the league so that they have all of the facts regarding this misdemeanor allegation.”

The Clippers released a statement:

“We are aware of the situation in Miami regarding Willie Reed, and are working to determine the facts around the situation.”

The NBA’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement has a section on players’ domestic violence that provides counseling to prevent future occurrences, and the league can refer players to that program as part of the discipline for the incident. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver also can fine and suspend Reed if he is found or pleads guilty. I would argue in the past the league has been too lenient on this issue (same with DUIs), but we will see how it plays out.

Reed will be going through the legal process in this case as he moves through the NBA season.

Reed opted out of his contract with the Heat, one of many NBA players who saw the big money splashed around in 2016 and thought they would cash in, only to find a very tight market. Reed ended up taking a one-year, minimum deal with the Clippers for $1.5 million.

I hate to say it, but I actually like some of the moves the Clippers have made.

CP3/Crawford/Redick at the guards put up stats, but weren't taking them anywhere.

I think Beverly gives them a new identity and they will be an interesting team to watch.

Beverly is going to get paid. Are the Clips going to commit to a bigger deal for him?

Will Beverley take them farther than CP3? C'mon. CP3 choked at times, but he's far superior to Beverley.

Willie Reed’s wife: I asked for his domestic-violence charge to be dropped


Clippers center Willie Reed was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence against his wife, Jasmine Reed.

Ira Winderman of the South Florida SunSentinel:

The statement released by Miami-based attorney Ivlis Mantilla from Jasmine Reed reads:

“This incident has been totally blown out of proportion. I did not call the police and I did not ask anyone to call the police on my behalf. Willie is a good man and a great father. I have no intention of pressing charges and I have asked the authorities to immediately dismiss all charges against Willie. This is a private matter between my husband and I and for the sake of our family I would like to keep it that way.”

Domestic violence is complicated.
