Playing for contender in hometown with Clips for MLE an appealing option?


Sources indicate Celtics director of basketball operations Danny Ainge will likely buy out forward Paul Pierce's $15 million contract for next year ($5 million is guaranteed). If that happens, Grant should be first in line to try to acquire Pierce's services. However, before anyone gets too giddy, Pierce will likely want to go to a serious contender.

SI: Difference Between CP3 and D12 Free Agency


Why Chris Paul is revered and beloved in comparison to the animosity and frustration with Dwight Howard.


BG vs. CP3

Given how connected and trusted Bill Simmons is, this is cause for concern: Blake Griffin isn't good enough yet. You could rank him higher because he's the most popular Clipper ever, someone...


Which targeted draft prospect did the Rams miss out on?

Snead in post-draft conversation with Colin Cowherd: In this draft, there was one player where probably about four picks before I was like, "Dang." The guys we did pick, they were targeted....

NFL draft questions: Rams to trade up for playmaker?


Talk of Snead trading up for Julio Jones when he was director of player personnel with Falcons in 2011...but there is no JJ in this draft.

2013 NFL Draft: St. Louis Rams spotlight


Five players who should be on the St. Louis Rams' draft radar: WR Tavon Austin, West Virginia_____ FS Kenny Vaccaro, Texas _____ RB Eddie Lacy, Alabama_____ OT Kyle Long, Oregon_____ WR Da'Rick Rogers, Tennessee Tech

Eight in the Box: Breakout player

Running back Isaiah Pead is a close choice over receiver Brian Quick. Both came to mind immediately as leading candidates for breakout seasons after neither produced much as a second-round choice in 2012. Quick caught two scoring passes among his 27 receptions as a rookie. Pead was a nonfactor with only 10 carries. That gives him more room for growth. Pead should see a significant increase in opportunities now that Steven Jackson is with the Atlanta Falcons. When I asked quarterback Sam Bradford about breakout candidates last summer, Pead was one of the first players he mentioned based on physical abilities alone. Bradford wasn't sure whether Pead could contribute right away after missing organized team activities, because of the graduation schedule at the University of Cincinnati. In the end, Pead never gained much traction. Bradford did think Pead had the talent to be "special" in a change-of-pace role, at least. The thinking here is that Pead should be just as talented now as he was then, and that he'll benefit from a year in the offensive system and additional opportunities.

Clippers' Blake Griffin could have a monumental career

How St. Louis Rams' free-agent signings alter 2013 NFL Draft approach


Published: March 18, 2013 02:41 – Find out how the St. Louis Rams' free-agent signings will impact what they do with their two first-round draft picks.

Brandon Gibson on Quick and Givens


They have a lot of faith in them, and I as well have a lot of faith in them. I think they do a great job while they're there and they do a great job of getting those other guys the ball, and Sam [Bradford] is going to do a great job of leading that team. So, I think they’ll be just fine without me.

NFL.com - On the Clock: St. Louis Rams


Published: March 15, 2013 07:18 – The St. Louis Rams need help on their offensive line and at wide receiver. The "Path to the Draft" experts debate who St. Louis will draft with two first-round picks.

Pluses and minuses of Clippers moves

In sum: The Clippers probably could have found better ways to spend their mid-level money than by using it all on Crawford. Odom is a risk, but at the cost of a slightly redundant player in Mo Williams — who was terrific for the most part last season in carrying otherwise awful scoring lineups — he’s worth it to add a productive two-way big man on the bench. Size is a non-negotiable ingredient in the NBA to win a title — unless a team has LeBron James or Michael Jordan (and Jordan’s teams had size) — and Paul and Griffin have the potential to carry the Clips and push better teams in a playoff series, provided that both are healthy. But in the big picture, the Clippers still look like the Clippers — a mid-tier playoff team, with a ceiling at No. 2, behind Oklahoma City. All things considered, that’s not a bad place to be. And it’s possible that no move other than a blockbuster trade would have broken through the Thunder’s ceiling.

Report: Rams 'first choice' for 2012 NFL Draft is Trent Richardson

"Our sources tell us the Rams' first choice is [Alabama running back Trent] Richardson," Lange writes. "But he is already off the board, so they grab Blackmon to give Sam Bradford an elite receiving weapon." As the folks over at Rotoworld point out, Lange is a former Rams scout. So he's probably got an idea or two what they're thinking on their draft board.

Isiah Thomas dismissed by FIU

"This is the most surprising thing that has happened to me in basketball," Thomas said. "I never been fired before for basketball reasons. This is the first time. "When I was in Toronto, I was trying to buy a team and I left. When I was in Indiana, Larry Bird told me that he liked what I was doing but he was closer to Rick Carlisle. The whole thing in New York was crazy. This is the first time someone told me that I was being fired for basketball reasons." Really, Isiah? Your tenure in New York is the classic case for firing for basketball reasons. The Knicks were an absolute mess precisely because of your stewardship and decisions based on your talent evaluation acumen.

Dwight Howard circus hits rock bottom

"The bottom line: Van Gundy is a wonderful coach, and he has been a very good coach for this set of talent specifically. I’m not sure why Howard wants him gone, but it will be hard for the Magic to find a better X’s-and-O’s coach. It will be hard for them to find someone who works more diligently, or someone who is more open to advanced statistics, new technology and other cutting-edge material that can inform a coach’s many decisions. Other teams will line up to get Van Gundy, if it comes to that. And if it does, the Magic and Howard should kick themselves." With VDN's position as coach being tenuous and names like Nate McMillan, Jerry Sloan, Phil Jackson, Larry Brown, Stan Van Gundy, and possibly even John Calipari--though I think it's NY or bust (back to Kentucky) for him--likely to be available, the Clippers have a chance at making up a little for not jumping on Rick Adelman when most of us knew they should have when they had the chance rather than sticking with Vinny for the final year of his contract. Stan Van should be at the top of the list should he become available.

Not Exactly Turning Over a New Leaf


Ryan Leaf, once again, has been arrested on burglary and drug charges. No, this isn't the news from late last week when he was arrested on burglary, drug and theft charges. No, this is a new arrest with even more charges. As the AP reports, Leaf was arrested in Montana early Monday morning, two days after posting bond on his first arrest. According to Central Montana Drug Force Commander Chris Hickman, Leaf will face charges on burglary, theft and two counts of criminal possession of drug charges, as well as a probation violation.

Anschutz now willing to buy majority interest in NFL team to get L.A. stadium project underway.


I thought I read somewhere that Kroenke and Anschutz were on friendly terms. Depending on how close they are, could a partnership for ownership of the Rams work with these two? Or would Kroenke rather not share?

Brad Stevens declines Illini offer, staying at Butler


If and whenever Howland is relieved of his coaching duties at UCLA, Brad Stevens would be my top choice to replace him--assuming Coack K is untouchable. Of course, the bigger priority is to get rid of Dan Guerrero.

Greg Cosell Interview with 101ESPN


NFL Films' Greg Cosell is really high on RB Trent Richardson but is possibly leaning toward Floyd over Blackmon at WR.
