Well they did manage to resign Pat Beverley to a 3 year/40 mil deal. That's a big victory for them. They get his great energy and defense back.

Your saying nice things about Clips? So your a fan? Before he got all the good PR in the playoff, Beverley could be a dick & is one of the most hated players in the NBA. ---Yohe

Ballsy move by the Clipps in getting PG.

This is good for the NBA. Two quality teams in Los Angeles, making for lots of TNT and ESPN appearances for both along with both in the post season baring injuries. Nets are a story for the season after, along with Klay back... so the NBA is booked for two interesting years.

Good thing the Clippers had all those draft picks. Probably wouldn't gotten PG that way. PG gets to play for his hometown fans.

Jerry West does it again. Now they're one of the favorites for the Championship. What a long journey for them.

What else could be said about getting Kawhi. One of the best players in the game. One of the best postseasons you can have.

So Shai gets traded as well as Galinari. Shai did have his moments last year. But they keep Shamet.

Woj story on how this trade came together:

The stunning part here. If Leonard stayed in Toronto, the Thunder would've wanted to trade George and Westbrook to Toronto for Siakam and others. Toronto wisely balked.

Just woke up to this. Gee Toronto, & OKC must be fucked up places to play. Man Westbrook must be a dick. And LA is still the best place to play. It will be fun to watch Leonard play.

This is a strange time in NBA history. Have no way to figure out what is going to happen.

Jerry West is still king. I would bet these players moved because of talking with him. Strange I've started following sports around 1962 & West has always been there...doing major stuff. Things change...West stays the same.--Yohe

So Kawhi and Paul George actually can opt out in a couple of years. Both have player options after the 2020 season.

I hear that George had surgery on two shoulders & Leonard will only play 60 games again. These guys did know about the Clipper curse when they signed?--Yohe

Board man and PG got introduced today. Steve Ballmer stole the show though:

Seems Ty Lue is returning to LA. The Clippers that is. Reuniting with Doc Rivers.
