My first question, after staring at the possibility of three front court players –Marcus Camby, Chris Kaman and Zach Randolph — averaging 9.5, 10.8 and 12.5 rebounds a game, respectively, is which of those three starts the game on the bench? Or, if this move is a precursor to another move.
I’ve confirmed that the Knicks did ask for Camby earlier this week; which caused the talks to stall, and which is the reason I wrote a few days ago that it didn’t look like the Clippers would be making any big moves any time soon. However when the Knicks decided that they’d take Thomas instead, the deal got done very quickly.
So, is this a precursor to another move?
From what I’m hearing, No.
A source close to the team told me that the Clippers were “done” and any playing time questions would be decided by Coach Mike Dunleavy, not general manager Mike Dunleavy.
Still, I expect this to be a fluid situation, depending on how the team plays.
In other news, the Clippers play Philly in a few hours and see Elton Brand for the first time since the events of last summer. Wow, doesn’t that seem like a long time ago now.
