    So let him go. How many of us have beefs with Corbin over his rotations?
    In the past, the Jazz have quickly gotten rid of players that clashed with coaches...trading Giri, Deron, and others. They're making an example out of Raja. Hell, they may as well put him in a pillory in front of the ESA.

    We know Sap wanted to start over 20 year old Favors because he was the better player at the time, lets not project that into Millsap demanding a starter role everywhere. He might be fine starting behind Griffin given they will be an elite contending team for the next 5 years, all through Sap's prime. At this point in Sap's career, chances are getting at least one ring starts to make its way up his priority list.

    @Tony ^^^ Or worse . Talented youngsters just get discouraged because they know they're not going to get PT over washed-up vets. They're looking forward to the day when they can play for a coach who values talent over tenure.

    It makes very little sense for LA - even if CP3 re-signs not only because (like you mentioned) Millsap's primary position is the same as the Clippers' franchise player - but also because Millsap will be a free agent this summer. I think Clippers know CP3 will re-sign and comtemplating selling-high on Bledsoe now.

    Blake is superior to Chris Paul? Ok then...

    If LAC meets Miami in the finals, a team that plays Bosh at C, then Millsap is far less redundant (if he's redundant at all). The Clipps could play Griff and Millsap together in that series.

    I think there are minutes for Millsap regardless.

    If the Clippers are choosing 1-player to build the future of their franchise around - it's Blake Griffin (hence the term "franchise player" which I used).

    I definitely think they could play together, but I think gambling Bledsoe for a 2013 title run falls on the "risky/foolish gamble" side when it's clear that OKC and San Antonio are clearly the superior team at this point in the season (and I don't think Millsap closes that gap for them).

    Plus Millsap can hit FT's, which is a concern when they have Griffin/Jordan finishing games. It be interesting to see if the Clippers would embrace Sap at SF, or if they would strictly use him as a PF.

    You used best before the ninja edit Where is Chris Paul going to sign for one less year and less money? Throw out one realistic option.

    Yeah, but with Billups coming back there is goign to be less time for Bledsoe. Where does Bledsoe fit into their future? Millsap could be the piece that puts them over the top. Their bench would be absolutely insane.

    I'm sure they have tried to trade Raja. They aren't just going to take back bad contracts for him. We traded Giri for Korver and Deron for a ton of good pieces. At best Raja can be a throw in to a trade to make salaries balance. Teams won't care about taking him on because they know they can just tell him to stay where he is, so they don't have to worry about how taking him on will affect the team.

    As Cyrone said, with Billups coming back and playing serviceable, it probably cuts down Bledsoe to 15 minutes a game. His last two games were 15 and 17 minutes. Millsap would at least see 30 minutes a night in LA. So no he is not the perfect fit, but does improve them.

    I don't know what you're debating w/me about. My original point was that trading for Millsap makes little sense for the Clippers whether CP3 re-signs with them (likely) or not. The end.
