You guys saw Barnes dribble a bit in the playoffs and he has solved that part of his game?

Not really...he was improved but watch him close next season..it still is subpar to be considered a guard.

Danny Green and Barnes must have learned how to drive on opponents together.

Barnes will improve this aspect of his game but I will wait to see it.

Clippers are having a nice offseason so far.. Retaing Paul n Matt Barnes is a win... Now for Deandre Jordan to grow up!

Barnes didn't just dribble a "bit", he was attacking the rim like he never had before in his basketball career.

 

No one is saying that he has automatically become Michael Jordan, but he did prove that he is capable of creating his own shot.

 

He will only get better with time.

Really like the moves the Pelicans have made this offseason.  I think with the expected improvement of Anthony Davis, they'll be in the playoff hunt this upcoming year.  That Southwest division is the best in the NBA.

Barnes looked great in the playoffs, he showed flashes of a James Worthy type game.  Big enough to handle most PFs on defense and on offense he is really great at playing off the ball, spacing the court, and attacking the rim when the opportunity comes.  He's not really a go to guy who can create his own offense, but if you dont ask him to he will be great.

• From Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

The Hawks agreed to terms with free agent Paul Millsap late Friday night, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has learned.

The deal for the 6-foot-8 power forward will be for two years and $19 million, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The agreement with Millsap came hours after the Jazz renounced his rights upon agreeing to a trade with the Warriors. In that deal, the Jazz obtained the expiring contracts of Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and Brandon Rush. Millsap made $8.6 million last season and had an $11 million cap hold.

Philadelphia will receive the draft rights to international prospect Furkan Aldemir and cash in addition to White, while the Rockets will clear White’s $1.7 million from the books in exchange for “future draft considerations.”

    • So you choose to look at people based on race instead of them as an individual person. When you put it that way, you'll never be satisfied. Grouping people into race categories that have nothing to do with a person's character, personality, or any of the sort will always show a variation in data across all groups under that category. It's virtually impossible to make race groups all the same due to the fact it has nothing to do with any one of those people's characteristics, which are random and probability showing it's impossible for everything to be equal.  
    • Is it Cam simply refusing to go underneath or is it a number of contributing factors? We are a running/downfield passing team. The problem was, we couldn't get the run game going due to the OL, and our play calling/design didn't help matters at times to compensate for that deficiency either. Nobody complained about this in 2015 when we nearly went undefeated. So what was the difference between seasons? It couldn't have had anything to do with our depleted OL could it? Overall we shot ourselves in the foot too many times in 2016 in various ways. But the reality is the OL was at the center of our woes.
    • What you’re saying doesn’t make sense.  The society we have now, was structured based completely on race.  That number I mentioned concerning the black prison population, there is no way in the universe you can get that number without being directly targeted.  Even during South Africa Apartheid, their prison numbers in the black population wasn’t as bad, nowhere near close.  This is our country. The only way to truly make things right, is to acknowledge the problem and addressed it specifically.  The reason why we see protests like the one Kaepernick did, is because that problem hasn’t been addressed.  Of course I have my answer on how to address it, but I’m sure most would completely disagree with it, even though the statistics would show it is much deserved.
