–  Advice To The Clippers (from Amin Elhassan, ESPN):
” My advice (to the Clippers) is to get a real GM. But what I foresee: They’ll look for some also-ran players who once played for team president Doc Rivers or played well against him (or played in his driveway). That’s who they’ll target.
 
” If you look at the four-man combination of Chris Paul, J.J. Redick, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, they’ve consistently ranked among the top lineups in the league in plus-minus and net rating. The idea that the Clippers need massive changes is overblown. What they need is competent cap management, good free-agent signings, better minor league evaluation and better player development. In short, all the things you need to correctly fill out your supporting cast. “
