Cavs/Clippers talked about Kaman/Camby, "sources" say

1

Sources said the Cavs were in serious talks about two other trades that could include multiple teams. One of those teams is believed to be the Los Angeles Clippers, who are dangling big men Chris Kaman and Marcus Camby as they prepare to select Oklahoma forward Blake Griffin with the No. 1 overall pick.

Marc Stein on the Clippers

6

Why is Marcus Camby said to be available in Clipperland so soon after being frequently described as off-limits leading up to this past season's February trade deadline? Because the Clips have discovered this month that they can't move Zach Randolph or Chris Kaman unless they're also willing to move down from No. 1 in Thursday's draft order. Which they obviously have zero interest in considering. The Clips also love bargain-find frontcourt man DeAndre Jordan, so Camby -- whose defensive pedigree and expiring $9.7 million salary make him a hugely popular trade target -- is the big man easiest for L.A. to move to make room for the incoming Blake Griffin. We're told that management also has decreed that assistant coach Kim Hughes will not be let go -- unlike the rest of Mike Dunleavy's staff -- to keep Hughes in place as a potential interim successor to Dunleavy in the unlikely event that the Clips and their under-fire coach/GM part ways during the season. A parting remains unlikely even if Hughes hangs on because, as you've surely heard dozens of times by now, Dunleavy still has two years left on his contract worth more than $10 million.

Hollinger's Draft Rater

33

John Hollinger does this annually. Blake Griffin is ranked 2nd this year behind Ty Lawson, who scored surprisingly high. Overall, Griffin is the 6th highest rated prospect since 2002, behind Dwayne Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Mike Conley, & Lawson. Many of the rankings, both past and present, are suspect. Hollinger offers a semi mea culpa on Eric Gordon's low rating last year: "Gordon is perhaps easier to understand because he was playing hurt at Indiana and his primary skill (shooting) didn't show through statistically, but that doesn't excuse the others." Whatever.

Ricky Davis opts to return to the Clippers (surprise)

9

Davis, coming off a year with a terrible case of knee tendinitis, exercised his player option for $2.4 million. It was a rough year for Davis who played in just 36 games, averaging 6.4 points a game on 33.9% shooting from the field. The Clippers are curious to see of Davis can rebound with a healthy knee, although it wouldn't be a surprise if Ricky was included in a deal sending out one of LA's "extra" big men (Chris Kaman, Zach Randolph and/or Marcus Camby).
