    Default Iggy/Kaman swap in the works?

    Amid increasing signals that the Philadelphia 76ers are finally prepared to deal Andre Iguodala after years of trade speculation, another potential swap has surfaced that would send the swingman to the Los Angeles Clippers for center Chris Kaman, sources with knowledge of the discussions told ESPN.com.


    Although it's believed that the trade has not yet advanced past the discussion phase, sources told ESPN.com that the Sixers and Clippers have discussed an Iguodala-for-Kaman swap.


    The Clippers have long maintained that the only scenario that would convince them to part with Kaman -- whose career has been plagued by injuries but who had an All-Star season in 2010 -- is getting an elite small forward in return.


    Iguodala's athleticism and defensive skills would figure to mesh well alongside star power forward Blake Griffin and young center DeAndre Jordan. The Clippers are determined to keep Jordan over Kaman as their center of the future as Jordan heads for restricted free agency.


    But it appears that the Sixers are weighing various trade possibilities as they gauge the market for Iguodala. Earlier this week, ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher reported that the Sixers and Golden State Warriors have likewise discussed a trade that would swap Monta Ellis for Iguodala.


    Trade talk generally picks up leaguewide at this time every year, as the NBA draft approaches, but sources say that the Sixers could well delay any trade until after the completion of the team's potential sale from Comcast-Spectacor to a group headed by New York-based leveraged buyout specialist Joshua Harris, as reported Tuesday by ESPN.com's Henry Abbott.


    In both cases -- Iguodala for Kaman or Iguodala for Ellis -- current salaries for the players involved are close enough that the swap could be made without adding additional players to the deal to satisfy current salary-cap requirements.


    Iguodala and Kaman are both represented by agent Rob Pelinka.


    Marc Stein is a senior NBA writer for ESPN.com.


    Seems like they'd be settling if they're really taking Kaman instead of Ellis.

    That would be a good deal for the Clips.

    I should admit that I'm not extremely familiar with Iggy's game... I've only seen him play 5 or 6 times. Can he play the 2 or is he too limited as a shooter? Because I'd love for this deal to create a logjam for the Clips that could benefit us...

    He is a sg/sf and I too would hope to see EJ here as a result.

    Ellis or Kaman? Thats a no brainer. Ellis all the way.

    Offensively he's not a good enough shooter to play the 2.

    However

    Defensively he's very very good, and is more than capable of guarding any 2.
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    I'm confused on the insistence that you must be a top notch shooter to play SG, instead of SF. What's the difference? Dirk is a better shooter than most shooting guards, and he plays power forward.

    Iggy would be 100% fine at SG. His ability to get to the rim and very good passing ability would help any offense from the SG, and he can defend any SG in the league.

    I don't think the deal is even straight up. The Clips should at least have to throw in Aminu.

    Yeah this has to come with future picks or Aminu, unless Philly's insane.

    Yeah Gordon would clearly be the odd man out if the cap number is low if this trade were done. Griffin is max salary, Jordan is probably going to take 8-10 million a year to keep, and Gordon is a near max salary, plus having Igoudala, plus with a notoriously cheap owner, there's no way they all stay.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Hasn't Kaman's health and production dropped the past couple of seasons? This just seems like a bad trade for the 76ers.

    This would be a great deal for the Clippers.

    For next season, Williams/EJ/Iggy/Griffin/Jordan sounds like the next Grizzlies surprise team if not better.

    Wow I really hope this happens at this point. I don't think Clippers could actually afford to match us if we offered EJ a Max deal.

    I haven't been paying much attention to the 76ers sale, but are they expected to sell soon? Like before the draft soon? I only ask because the article states Iggy is staying put until the sale is complete.

    Don't people expect EJ to be a better player than Iggy next year?

    So why would Iggy play in front of him?
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    EJ was better than him last year until he got hurt. Iggy can play the 3 and would. People who say the Clippers cant afford both remember they were willing to give Elton Brand and Bdiddy huge contracts before Brand bolted. The Clippers make money every year and they will pay EJ and keep the rest of the group together.


    It would most likley come with Aminu Cooper



    10m for Deandre Jordan? lol I would hope they dont do that. That would be a Andris Biedrins type contract i don't think they will give him that much. 4-7m is what they should give him.


    Unless there is a hard cap the Clippers will keep all of them(or EJ ask for a trade)

    Williams
    EJ
    Iggy
    Blake
    Jordan

    that lineup would be crazy good.
