Sterling could've ridded the clippers of Randolph's contract and relieved the logjam at the PF spot by trading him to Memphis for Darko's expiring deal and defensive guard Greg Buckner.

Why in the world would Sterling back out?
Is there more to this?

Yes, I was frustrated at first, but Buckner had a 4-5 mil contract in 10/11 which might've been a problem, considering his shooting problems and that we're kinda set at that position.
Also, he probably figured he had no use for Darko, but still has some use with Randolph.
I expect this trade to be revisited later in the year, but with Q Rich instead of Darko.  Probably the Clips wanted Hakim Warrick instead of Buckner, but after signing guys and whatever trading moratorium is passed...
I would expect Q Rich and Q Ross to be sent to the Clips for Randolph.

You know sometimes the contract is not everything.  This guy has proven on 3 separate teams that he WILL get you 20 pts/10rebounds a game in 35 minutes -no matter where or who he plays with.  Yes-he is overpaid - but thats because he signed an escalating contract to help out the blazers.  So basically he is getting 14M over the length of his contract -which is not terrible.  At worst he is being overpaid by 3-4M and you can live with that IMO -if you have no cap issues.

I would not send him out for trash -which Darko/Jaric and Buckner is.  If they offered Gortat/Lee/Alston -I would do it in a heart beat.  But -come on -all the guy has ver done for the last 3-4 years is produce.

If only Darius Miles would've gotten thrown into the deal.

Oh well...Glad the Clippers got rid of Randolph. I think he's a decent player but they needed to get rid of a big. They have a solid front court and now they have plenty of minutes for Griffin.

If only the Clippers would fire Dunleavy.....

He's already done better in a few years than Elgin Baylor did in an eon.
He might of inherited Baylor's job, but let's not tag him with Baylor's legacy.

This team isn't for him though.

With Davis, Griffin, and Gordon he should speed the tempo up...but he won't.

As a GM he hasn't really done anything that great.

He is credited with bringing the Clips their best season ever.  Baylor was technically GM at the time, but it was thought that Dunleavy was pulling the strings.  When Dunleavy came aboard, we signed Mobley, which was a huge free agent signing, prior to that, we never paid out big money for a free agent.
