One source said the Clippers are talking to the Charlotte Bobcats about a package that would send Kaman to Charlotte for Jason Richardson.

Bobcats are fools doing that trade. Yea, they get a legit big guy to play Center alongside Okafor but they lose a ton of scoring and their only legit SG

Better idea they trade for Richardson then we trade Mags back to LA for J-Rich and we pretend it's 2006.

I'd take JRich back in an instant. If the team could get a revamp to say the least and get rid of Crawford and Maggette, getting JRich and Felton if possible from the Bobcats and someone like Corey Brewer, who seems a bit out of favour in the TWolves but plays the defense, it'd be a great change for the roster, giving a better direction and less of the same type of players

What the hell is up with the Clippers wheeling and dealing for ex-Warriors? First Josh Powell. Next Baron Davis. Now Jason Richardson? Are they trying to reminisce the '05-'06 Warriors? Sure, reuniting Baron and Jason is great, but giving up Kaman for him is stupid. They're front court is thin as hell already, why would they make it smaller?

Clips don't need J-Rich, they have AL THORNTON and beside Bobcats already have okafor in the lineup and why they add another big men for the team and i do believe M.Jordan are not stupid for this one...

And Thornton is a SF.

I can't say I understand this trade (if it finally happens). Larry Brown has been trying to trade for a center for a while now, and Kaman is one of the few starting centers available, so I can get it from Charlotte's point of view.

For the Clippers?. Not so much. They already have Ricky Davis and Eric Gordon, and Gordon looks more than ready to start. Why do they feel they need to add J-Rich while weakening their inside game is beyond me...
