Pietris would be a nice pick up for LA since Ebanks can't shoot

The Celtics can use his help for sure. I'd rather he go to the toxic situation right now that is the Dallas Mavericks.

The paperclips could use him.. Heat he wouldn't see the floor. Mavs, who cares they aren't going anywhere.. The best situation for Matt from those 3 options would be the Clips, and he'd still be behind Butler and G. Hill. I can't really say I care where he ends up at this point. He isn't a big enough factor to think about.

^ He's helpful to a team, just like he was with us, if he can accept his role. The Clippers don't make much sense, he'd be the clear 3rd stringer. In fact, he'd be the clear 3rd stringer on any of these teams...

Nevermind. Let him go there, he won't make much noise.

And he's looking at those 4 teams? They literally are my 4 most hated teams right now.

Not sure why he'd go to Miami or Clippers

Clips he is behind Butler/Hill
Miami he is behind Bron, Allen and Miller

I guess the Mavs make sense...

He should really go to the Celtics. Yes, we don't like them (obviously!), but it's a good fit for him, and he could definitely help them.

Really don't want to see Matt on the Heat, anywhere else I'm fine with. He didn't play great for us, but I can see him really helping the Heat, we dont' need them to have even more hustle guy with toughness.

Matt Barnes close to joining the Clippers!

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/w ... index.html

Chris Paul pushing for Clippers to sign Matt Barnes

Image

Sources say Matt Barnes is strongly leaning toward joining the other inhabitants of Staples Center, and a deal could be formalized later this week. Barnes turned down a more lucrative deal with Cleveland two summers ago to sign with the Lakers at the behest of Kobe Bryant, and it appears a similar superstar dynamic could be in play with the Clippers and Chris Paul.

Paul, who carries more Clippers clout than ever these days because of his looming free agency in 2013, has been included in the team's decision-making process throughout the summer and would love to make Barnes the latest addition. He appears on the verge of getting his wish. The Clippers re-signed a Paul favorite in point guard Chauncey Billups earlier this summer, secured a five-year extension with forward Blake Griffin and also added the likes of scorer Jamal Crawford, veteran small forward Grant Hill and reliable big man Ronny Turiaf.

It's been a banner summer for the new vice president of basketball operations, Gary Sacks, a longtime Clippers executive who teamed up with team president Andy Roeser and coach Vinny Del Negro on the personnel front when general manager Neil Olshey left for Portland.

Barnes -- who averaged 7.8 points, 5.5 rebounds and 22.9 minutes in 63 games last season and has been impressing during workouts at the Clippers facility in recent weeks -- would be a low-risk, high-reward add that would replace the toughness and defensive mentality lost with the exit of free-agent forward Kenyon Martin.

Sources say the Lakers have still been considering signing Barnes as well, along with Brooklyn and Miami.

I'd stil rather have Barnes over Ebanks until he can prove he deserves the 14-18 mins he's going to be getting. I think have one more year with Barnes and find Ebanks more minimal mins, then I think next year he'd be ready for full time backup mins.

If we don't want him anymore and he wants to stay in LA and goes to the Clippers I have no problems with it, guy hasn't been a huge money earner in his career, he's gotta keep playing somewhere.

im all for giving Ebanks a chance over Barnes but after thinking about it more im not sure. With a new bench, and Barnes super activity on the boards and also how well he cuts. also he brings that nasty edge that the lakers could need. if hes healthy he can be great for us. but he just had really bad luck when it comes to playoff injuries. before the injury he was our best option off the bench and pretty efficient (stupid kid hurting his neck!). still think its important to see how ebanks improved. barnes playing for the clippers would suck. im on the fence with barnes...i think hed be better for us than ebanks and ebanks can come in for defensive purposes....

i like the idea of having waves of SF's to come in and guard lebron or durant. metta, then barnes, then ebanks...there would be no let up on d. and that way jaminson can stick to just backup PF and safe his legs for the playoffs

So when exactly does Ebanks prove he deserves minutes when in 3 years all you've given him is minimal time?

Barnes always got hurt but I liked his hustle, I'm not sure if I like Ebanks over Barnes still...he could definitely help out one of those teams.

The Clippers already have Butler & Hill.. He won't get much playing time.
