Re: “Randolph: A Clipper Assessment

Matt I appreciate your opinion and understand the frustration and dissappointment. But might I suggest we wait until the trade deadline before giving up on the team? Though disapointing in many ways, we got some hard working, blue collar type players in the draft. Mayo, Gay and conley looked very good at the end of last season and Gasol showed leadership and a tough attitude.

Lets wait and see how this shakes out. I get the feeling that Randolph is a weak willed and a less than bright guy. Lets see how his attitude and work ethic is effected by this team before we write it all off.

This draft and trade might spell disaster for the team, but lets give it a shot first.

Hollins impressed me last year. Not for great planning but for his self confidence and his ability to get the most out of the team. Lets see what he can do we an offseason and some new guys.

Its been said that the vision for this team is the bad boys of the south. This draft and trade fit that vision. Even a vision one disagrees with is preferable to the lack of vision we have had.

I am usually very optimistic and even I am wary about these moves. But if you look (and from your posts I know you can see a little glimmer of hope in there) you can see it.

Lets give it a bit of time and see if this vision starts to take form. Will we have more of an identity this year? Thats something that has been largely missing since Brown.

Its going to be an interesting year. If all of our fears come true. Then we can leave our support for the team on the table feeling we gave them every chance. But imo, doing so now would be a touch premature.

That's my opinion anyway.

Re: “L.A. Times Reporting Randolph Deal Done

Matt that flexibility is still in play. His contract is only 2 years. Signing Lee or milsap for 5 to 6 years would have committed that flexibilty completely.

this is the one positive from the trade. Its a low risk contract in terms of cap space. We are still probably going to be in the lottery next year. We will draft our pf. (even if we have to trade up)

Randolph will either be a good fit and get an extension in two years, will be traded as an expiring next year, or will simply be cut.

Either way we are still in a much more flexible place than we would have been signing either Lee or Milsap.

Matt send some my way. I am not behind this trade, but I am still behind the team.

Re: “The Draft Post

There still seems to be some good value in the second round. Any chance we make some minor deals to try some of these guys?
