Iguodala for Kaman?
 
Boy they seem pretty determined to deal Iguodala.

Quote:

Amid increasing signals that the Philadelphia 76ers are finally prepared to deal Andre Iguodala after years of trade speculation, another potential swap has surfaced that would send the swingman to the Los Angeles Clippers for center Chris Kaman, sources with knowledge of the discussions told ESPN.com.



Although it's believed that the trade has not yet advanced past the discussion phase, sources told ESPN.com that the teams have discussed an Iguodala-for-Kaman swap.



The Clippers have long maintained that the only scenario that would convince them to part with Kaman -- whose career has been plagued by injuries but who had an All-Star season in 2010 -- is getting an elite small forward in return.



Iguodala's athleticism and defensive skills would figure to mesh well alongside star power forward Blake Griffin and young center DeAndre Jordan. The Clippers are determined to keep Jordan over Kaman as their center of the future as Jordan heads for restricted free agency.



But one source briefed on the trade discussions said Wednesday night that -- while Iguodala undeniably likes the idea of playing alongside his Team USA teammate Griffin in L.A. -- the Clippers would likely have to sweeten their offer to get Philly to bite.

LAC would look pretty sweet with a lineup of Jordan/Griffin/Igoudala/Gordon/Bledsoe.

Probably the most athletic starting line up in the league.

Defense and Blake Griffin in the same sentence? He had as many blocks as Bargs...

They never said Blake played D, just that Iggy would mesh with him. At least thats what I got from it.

no way the 76ers settle for just kaman.

N64 06-08-2011 09:16 PM

pretend they kept their pick and still got the #1 pick...probably not in Stern's NBA but still:

Kyrie
Gordon
Iguodala
Griffin
Jordan

God damn

Can you just trade Iguodala already.


Everyone knows it's coming.

You mean in the history.

Aminu is a good prospect. If the Clippers include him in the deal, I bet Philly would bite.

Lakers would be hating life. They wouldn't to be able to roll over the Clippers every other week. Igoudala doesn't like losing.

that lineup even though very athletic would be easy to beat, any coach with half a brain would pack the pain and dare that team to shoot open jumpers

Mo Williams and EJ would proceed to make said coach look like a dunce. They won't start bledsoe.
