Clippers Deal Richardson... Again

In a minor off-season deal, the Timberwolves have agreed to send Sebastian Telfair, Mark Madsen and Craig Smith to the Clippers for Quentin Richardson (from Yahoo! Sports). The first thing that came to mind when I heard about this deal is two NBA players on Twitter for one (in Minnesota's case)? What a bad social media trade-off, Wolves fans.

On a more serious note, the Clipps add some more frontcourt guys and cap to their roster. I like Smith and Madsen is kind of a throw-in. Telfair just hasn't found his niche in the NBA yet. Maybe working under Baron Davis will be good for him? I'm not sure, but if he could score like he did in high school, the Clippers would have one hell of a steal. But I doubt that will happen.

Q Rich must feel like a used trade throw-in. He was moved to Memphis, LA and now Minnesota. I'm just sorry that he lost the city of LA and got stuck in Sota'. All of these teams are lottery teams. But Richardson can provide outside shooting and some veteran leadership in Minnesota.

I just want to see how the Clippers are next season. They could be on the outside of the eigth playoff spot, but that's at their best. I think they will improve and show how much talent and firepower they truly do have. Also, I wish Baron Davis would have a good year. Last year was a train reck for him and the Clippers.

Comment on this post if you don't give a f*ck about this deal!!
