And suddenly, the pain of losing Elton Brand has been lifted. Big time!

ESPN - Nuggets trade Camby to Clippers for second-round pick


    The Los Angeles Clippers, exactly one week after finding out they had lost their face of the franchise, have rebounded with a significant trade acquisition.

    The Clippers on Tuesday acquired Denver Nuggets center Marcus Camby as their replacement for Elton Brand.

    The Clippers will only have to surrender a future second-round pick to acquire Camby, who is being jettisoned into the Clippers' salary-cap space vacated by Brand to generate payroll relief for the Nuggets.

    "I love this acquisition for the current makeup of our team," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We are getting a consummate pro who is maybe the best team defender in the league and who has 60 playoff games under his belt."


I suddenly feel really good about this team. They still might not make the playoffs, since Camby couldn't make anything happen in Denver, even with 'Melo and Iverson, but it feels good to know the Clippers aren't wallowing in self-pity after Brand left them high and dry. And rebound they did, because getting an All-Star for a second-round pick is a freakin' STEAL!

It does sound like a really good deal for the Clips... if Camby can stay healthy. And that's not a guaranteed thing, as I have learned from watching him play for the Knicks.

So now, do the Clippers still go after Igouodala? Are they really interested in him or is this a way of burning back the 76'ers for the whole Elton Brand fiasco?

This is what happens when you do stupid shit like overpay for Nene.

The Clippers now have quite the injury prone lineup now though.

Please. Nene broke out two seasons ago but had an unfortunate setback dealing with cancer last year. If he can regain his 2006-07 form then this won't hurt the Nuggets.

Back then it seemed like they overpaid for him, but again, if he regains his form, it's a gamble that will pay off.

Read it and weep, fella


Kaman, Davis, and now Camby? The Clipps are looking pretty good right now. Should be interesting to see what else they do this summer, but Camby's addition only leaves them $2mil under the salary cap so probably not anything too big.

I don't know what time you posted this, but you completely ignored the second round which I felt was far more important this year than usual.
