Now that JR Smith is not an option it is time to look at the trade market. The Clippers have an opportunity to play vultures. Time to prey on the weak and steal a good player off of a non-contender.
The Clippers have two trade exceptions. One for $3,831,184 and another for $2,755,560. Unfortunately they can't be combined. So when talking about our TPE's, our limit is $3,831,184. Note the only things that can be added to a TPE are cash or future draft picks.
Here are the list of wing players I think the Clippers could get for the TPE.
Reggie Williams - Bobcats - $2.5 million/2-years
He is currently starting with Henderson out with an injury. Career .390 3P%. I don't think he would be too hard to get, MJ loves money.
Austin Daye - Pistons - 1.9 mil/2-years
Not sure what is going on with this guy, but after two productive years he is now playing horrendous. A change of team could be good for him.
Dorrell Wright - Warriors - 3.8 mil/2-years
Just fits in perfectly into our larger TPE. Wright is starting for the Warriors, and I'm not sure how willing they are to give him up. But he would be a great get.
Brandon Rush - Warriors - 2.9/Expiring
He is shooting 54% from 3.
Mike Dunleavy - Bucks - 3.7 mil/2 years
This guy would be the perfect role-player for us if his name wasn't Mike Dunleavy.
Carlos Delfino - Bucks - 3.5/expiring
JGlanton's favorite basketball player.
Marco Belinelli - Hornets - 3.4/expiring
He played well last season next to Paul.
Shannon Brown - Suns - 3.5/expiring
Not getting minutes, good defender.
Nick Young - Wizards - 3.7/expiring
On his walk year, they pretty much have to trade him.
