Probably Adams to Clippers. He sets great picks, doesn't miss a lot of games, doesn't take plays off on defense and is a vacuum around the rim. He was 2nd in the NBA in offensive rebounds the last two seasons. Plus he has one more year on his deal than Gasol. There is a downside in how much depth the Clippers would have to sacrifice to get one player.



i dont see the thunder trading adams for a trade exception tho. most likely want picks and clippers have none. maybe if they add someof those young guys they have


Clips have the Miami pick from the Harkless. Zu resigning was meant for a trade. Logo is always step ahead . His experience and his wisdom compare to our FO, I’ll bet on the Logo even I hate their team


I thought they already traded that to OKC.

They are out of picks for the foreseeable future, and shouldn't trade whatever they have (aside from Stepien rules). It would be using the expiring Harkless + Zub once 12/15 passes that will likely be in play. But they would need a starting center then.


That was their pick. They grabbed another 1st round protected pick from Miami after the Harkless dump. Zu can be used for sign and trade right away since his contract is more than 2 years


I thought this was draft pick compensation:

Quote:
The Clippers surrendered their first-rounder picks in 2022, 2024 and 2026, plus sent ones for 2021 and 2023 that were obtained through Miami, to Oklahoma City to complete the George trade. Oklahoma City also has the right to swap first-round picks with the Clippers in 2023 and 2025.


Saw this elsewhere too:

Quote:
2021 MIA 1st (unprotected)
2022 LAC 1st (unprotected)
2023 Heat 1st (lotto protected)
2023 LAC pick swap
2024 Clips first (unprotected)
2025 LAC pick swap
2026 LAC 1st (unprotected)


Then its good news for me. I wonder if it’s officially completed. I don’t think Clips are done on making moves though.

Clippers getting any of Steven Adams, Gasol, Dwight would reduce our advantage at the center position.

Hopefully they keep it that way.



well even if they start the seaon with no C and do poorly i can see something but i think they really like Zubac and why they gave him money was to start him. we should of never traded him to them. just an idioctic move. made no sense at all


unfortunately, we can count on competition to improve their worst weakness.
this is especially true for the logo
and they have that 10m exception to help teams that have way too much salary and no chance to win - particularly the thunder.

they need salary to trade. he is young.
i could easily see a dec 15 zubac +$10m guy+10M exception for adams

man clippers are mad overhyped. CanNOT wait for the season to start so we can put that (bleep) to rest. They are not going to be a top 3 seed. Watch


Yeah, only on this board there are people who believe that Lebron isn't the best basketball player on the planet and that scrubs like Zubac or potentially Adams can do some damage to the team that has Anthony freakin' Davis.

You can't combine an exception with a player.

The trade that would have scared me is long past. Morey moved too late. The trade that would have made the Clippers clear championship favorites (in hind sight, but very possible) was for Houston to trade Harden to the Clippers for the same haul as PG13. Kawhi and PG13 overlaps too much. Kawhi and Harden ... that would have been a huge problem for the league.

The reason Kawhi would have worked out so well on the Lakers was because he does not dominate the ball (and almost always makes the correct decision when the ball gets to him). It will be interesting to see him and PG13 figure it out (maybe). Neither of them are ball dominant and PG13 will need to be a lot more assertive, which in my view hurts PG13's game. But not so with a Harden - Kawhi pairing, which would likely be more devastating than Curry+Klay Thompson. And with Capela ... yikes.
