Sitting there for one year, $12.2 million if the Clippers pay Jordan. Here's what I would do if I ran the Clippers …
Step 1: Pay Jordan. You can't mess around with Blake. And by the way, the Clips are only at $44.9 million right now. It's not like they don't have the money.
Step 2: Make the following phone call.
"Hey, Maloof brothers … you need to spend $17.5 million just to hit the league's salary floor ($49.3 million). You give us Jason Thompson (one year, $3 million remaining), we'll give you Kaman and the chance to have a secretly beastly low-post combo of the K-Man and Boogie (DeMarcus Cousins). That brings you within $8.3 million of the salary floor. Any interest? Any? (Listening.) What? You're asking me how much money I have in my wallet right now? Um, I have about $400 bucks. You want me to throw that in the trade? (Listening.) Fine, I can go to an ATM and get another $500. Would $900 do it? You want 20s or 100s … ?"
What would you all think? I like Cousins better at the PF position myself. I would be all right with this, besides the Kamen always kills us everytime we play.
