    Jul 22, 2011, 9:51 AM EST

    Al-Farouq Aminu Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Al-Farouq Aminu is still getting checks from the Los Angeles Clippers. Anticipating a potentially nasty lockout that dragged on, a few guys set up special contracts in recent years that stretched out their payments from last season into this year, according to the USA Today (via CBSSports Eye on Basketball): Aminu, a rookie last season,…

    Elton Brand got the movie industry bug when he was a Clipper out in Los Angeles. He even had his own production company for a wile. And he learned that it’s a cutthroat business as his company got sued multiple times (hello deep pockets). But he’s back at it, according to Philly.com. The man doesn’t…

  3. If you’re a free agent, do you play pickup during lockout?

    Shane Battier Memphis Grizzlies

    Shane Battier is a free agent and he’s going to have options. The Memphis Grizzlies want him back as they try to relive their magical run. There are teams like the Clippers that could really use a three with his skillset. If you can defend — and Battier can — you have a place in…

  4. Kevin Love and Blake Griffin are in jail (just kidding)

    Jul 8, 2011, 8:49 AM EST

    Blake Griffin Kevin Love

    Blake Griffin tweeted this photo (look to the right) of him and Kevin Love Thursday night saying: I guess they’re taking this lockout stuff pretty seriously No, it is not a photo of a real arrest. No, they are not hanging out with Michael Beasley. Just a couple of All-Stars pretending to be the 2002…

  5. Looking for big draft day trade? Watch Andre Iguodala.

    Jun 20, 2011, 10:46 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Andre Iguodala trade rumors have been flying around everywhere since the season ended, with the Clippers (Chris Kaman plus parts) leading the long parade of suitors. Those efforts to trade Iggy are heating up and he could be moved on or before draft day, according to Alex Kennedy at Hoopsworld. Meanwhile, Philadelphia wants to move…

  6. Maybe trading Monta Ellis is not going to be that easy

    Jun 17, 2011, 2:12 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Boston Celtics

    We’ve discussed before that with deal-making Jerry West in the house and a push for some changes in Golden State, Monta Ellis was being made available. Fourth leading scorer in the NBA, can create his own shot, bring some swagger to the offense, up your team’s tattoo quotient… not a lot of interest around the…

  7. Clippers give offer to Jordan, exercise options on Gordon, Griffin, Farouq-Aminu

    Jun 14, 2011, 7:29 PM EST

    blake-griffin-suns

    In a series of moves that should surprise exactly nobody, the Los Angeles Clippers extended a qualifying offer to center DeAndre Jordan, making him a restricted free agent, and exercised their team options on Blake Griffin, Eric Bledsoe, and Al-Farouq Aminu. All four players were drafted by the Clippers, and the latter three are still…

  8. Ron Artest tells the story of how he was almost a Clipper

    Jun 14, 2011, 3:28 PM EST

    Ron Artest

    Ron Artest with the Clippers? Instead of the Kings? Monday night Artest went on a little twitter binge looking back over the course of his career and it included the story where he was almost traded to the Clippers. Here are all the posts Did ya know when I got traded to sac (Sacramento) that…

  9. Dan Gilbert, Mo Williams enjoy the Heat loss too much

    Jun 13, 2011, 1:51 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The wounds are not healed in Cleveland. And watching LeBron James and the Heat lose was cathartic for many in Ohio. Or people who used to be in Ohio. Or people who just felt burned by LeBron. Or actually most of America. That includes Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, he of the comic-sans LeBron rant from…

  10. Mike Dunleavy Sr. awarded $13 million in arbitration hearing

    Jun 10, 2011, 7:20 PM EST

    Mike Dunleavy

    Well, it looks like at least one of notoriously cheap Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s cost-cutting measures has failed. Courtesy of the Los Angeles Times’ Lisa Dillman, here’s the story: An arbitrator has awarded former Clippers general manager and coach Mike Dunleavy slightly more than $13 million in compensation. The Clippers had quit paying Dunleavy immediately…

  11. Iguodala likes idea of playing with Clippers. Ya think?

    Jun 9, 2011, 11:45 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Imagine a fast break coming at you with Andre Iguodala on one wing and Blake Griffin on the other, with Eric Gordon handling the ball and D’Andre Jordan as the trailer into the lane to pick up any garbage. Rumors of the Clippers and 76ers discussing an Andre Iguodala trade had fans salivating about just…

  12. Stein: Clippers, 76ers “discussing” Kaman-Iguodala trade

    Jun 8, 2011, 5:47 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    According to ESPN.com, the Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Clippers are “discussing” a trade that would send 76ers swingman Andre Iguodala to the Clippers in exchange for center Chris Kaman. For the 76ers, the move would be a way to fill a hole and save some money. Iguodala’s contract goes through the 2013/14 season, while…

  13. Video: Blake Griffin loses to a blindfolded busboy at pop-a-shot

    Jun 1, 2011, 6:36 PM EST

    “Busboy Ricardo,” a 42-year old busboy and pop-a-shot expert, has beaten many an NBA superstar at his game of choice on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show. Ricardo’s most recent victim was Clippers All-Star forward and Rookie of the Year Blake Griffin. Griffin isn’t known as a shooter, so Ricardo gave himself a handicap and took…

  14. PBT Friday morning one liners

    May 20, 2011, 11:31 AM EST

    Grant Gilbert

    Could the Los Angeles Clippers have protected the pick they traded to Cleveland in the Baron Davis/Mo Williams deal, the one that became the No. 1 overall pick? It’s complicated, explains the brilliant Larry Coon (the CBA guru). Yes they could have, but not in a way that was good for them. Just go read…

  15. Clippers say no regrets for not protecting lottery pick

    May 18, 2011, 10:18 AM EST

    Mo Williams Clippers

    The Cleveland Cavaliers will select Kyrie Irving with the top pick in the 2011 NBA Draft — not with their own pick, but the one they got in a trade with the Los Angeles Clippers at the deadline. That deal was a salary dump by the Clippers — they wanted out of the two years…

  16. Cleveland Cavaliers win draft lottery, likely to take Irving

    May 17, 2011, 9:09 PM EST

    Kyrie Irving draft

    Start trying to picture Kyrie Irving in a wine and gold Cleveland uniform. The Cleveland Cavaliers got some good karma (maybe from owner Dan Gilbert’s son Nick) and won the NBA Draft Lottery — not with their own pick, but with the one they got from the Clippers this past season, the one with a…

  17. Report: Sixers looking to trade Iguodala this summer

    May 8, 2011, 12:12 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Philadelphia 76ers

    At the end of the season, Andre Iguodala was asked if he looked forward to playing with the 76ers next season, and his response was surprisingly vague for such a softball question. Here is what he told Kate Fagan of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I expect to be back in the NBA,” Iguodala said after the…

  18. Clippers looking to add a piece before lockout starts

    May 7, 2011, 10:33 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Here’s a sign of progress for the Clippers: They want to make trades so they can win now. They want to be in the playoffs next year. They like their core — Blake Griffin gives them a star, then they have Mo Williams at the point, Erik Gordon at the two, and the combo of…

  19. Miss watching games last night? How about some Blake Griffin?

    May 6, 2011, 8:19 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    After a month of playoff intensity, the basketball gods… well, actually the television executives that wanted to drag out the Heat/Celtics series more likely, decided to give us a night off. I didn’t like it either. To get a little fix we give you the compilation of Blake Griffin highlights the NBA kindly put together.…

  20. Blake Griffin the unanimous choice for Rookie of the Year

    May 4, 2011, 5:49 PM EST

    Griffin Mosgov

    There was no drama surrounding this year’s Rookie of the Year selection. After missing the entirety of what would have been his rookie season, Blake Griffin exploded out of the gates in 2011 and never looked back. He put up some of the best numbers for a rookie forward in the last few decades, provided…

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin‘s first two points of his NBA career came on an ally-oop dunk. By the end of his rookie season, he had 426 more points off of dunks. And thanks to the fine folks at NBA.com, we are going to bring you all of them. Hopefully next year we can watch him dunk in…

  22. Grizzlies to rest Zach Randolph Wednesday night, too

    Apr 13, 2011, 10:53 AM EST

    Zach Randolph

    It’s not tanking for a playoff seed, it’s resting. That’s the official line from Memphis coach Lionel Hollins on why he sat Zach Randolph Tuesday night (and Tony Allen). And he will do so again Wednesday night, Hollins told the Commercial Appeal. “Tony’s hurt,” Hollins said. “I didn’t want to play Zach these last two…

  23. Video: Blake Griffin’s over-the-balcony trick shot

    Apr 12, 2011, 12:45 PM EST

    Blake Griffin

    And you thought Blake Griffin didn’t have an outside shot. He’s got one, he just needs a balcony in the way, then he puts a little more arc under it. If there had been a car for him to shoot over too… Thanks to The Rookie Wall for finding this and sending it along.

  24. Video: Tony Allen with the Windmill dunk of the night

    Apr 6, 2011, 8:31 AM EST

    tony allen

    In a game featuring Blake Griffin somebody else had the dunk of the night. It was Tony Allen on the breakaway, with time to put a little flourish on it. Make the home crowd happy. Didn’t really help the Grizzlies win, they fell to the Clippers. But it was fun.

  25. Expect to hear John Calipari’s name for NBA openings

    Apr 4, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    NCAA Men's Final Four - Kentucky v UConn

    Last year, when LeBron James had yet to decide where his talents should go (at least officially), Kentucky coach John Calipari was a hot name. There were reports that William Wesley — the behind-the-scenes power broker now working for CAA — was trying to sell LeBron and Calipari as a package to the Bulls and…
