Pacific Notes: Teodosic, Davis, Fox

There’s no exact timetable for Milos Teodosic‘s return, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times writes. The seasoned Clippers rookie is making progress after missing Saturday’s contest but remains sidelined with the same injury that plagued him earlier this season.

Teodosic missed 22 games with the plantar fascia injury from October to mid-December but managed to work his way back into a significant role in the Clippers rotation.

On the season, Teodosic has averaged 8.4 points and 5.2 assists in 24.4 minutes per game for the Clippers.

There’s more out of the Pacific Division tonight:

  • The Warriors always tend to have an eye on their major long-term goals, kicking around possible acquisition targets that they could pursue when the time is right. Tim Kawakami of The Athletic writes that one of those targets could be Anthony Davis.
  • Rookie guard De’Aaron Fox has made a conscious effort to be more aggressive to take advantage of his speed, specifically in half-court sets. As Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee writes, the decision paid off in a recent Kings‘ win. “I was just able to create and if it wasn’t my assist it was a hockey assist – so it was a pass and another pass. Just trying to be able to start the offense and get the defense moving.
  • The Suns won’t be welcoming big man Alan Williams back to the lineup before February but the 24-year-old is still heavily involved with his team. Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic writes that Williams has become a very noticeably enthusiastic supporter of his teammates.

    Anthony Davis,E’Twaun Moore,TonyAllen for Klay,Iguodola,P.McCaw and Jordan Bell. This would benefit both teams I believe. Hard to break up the splash brothers but for A.D. you have to do it.

      I believe they will target him in free agency, not trade., and long term means years from now.

      • Whose taking the paycut in this scenario? I’m sure if AD made his intention clear that he wanted to go to Golden State that some of their core guys would take a paycut to do so, but would they be willing to cut enough pay (and AD presumably taking a paycut as well) to fit all of them together.

      Well. Longterm as far as next offseason… If KlayT wants to leave anyway, or has to to get paid, and with Iguodala just a reserve… =$34mil. Otherwise it will take maybe $20mil to max KT in 2019. Davis & Moore will be $32mil locked for a couple years. I’m sure GSW’s salary squeeze is discussed in NCal… Allen to replace Iguadala, Bell to push N.O. into it (Mccaw is a FA)… only Iguodala might oppose it. Crucially, Cousins would likely like it & re-sign. Cousins, KT, Holiday, maxxed; Bell expiring; F Hill, C Asik over $10mil… possibly no $ to re-sign Bell tho. Could happen.

      Wtf splash brother are you trading for one of the 5 best players in the league?

      You got Iggy who is about a year or two from retiring, a back up point guard and an undersized center who would not be able to provide anywhere close to what he does on the warriors in limited minutes. Common GTF outta here fool.

    Lookong at the Butler trade, which AD should retrieve more value than…

    Bulls traded:
    *Butler
    Wolves traded:
    *LaVine – a young and capable scoring threat, averaging ~15-20ppg.)
    *#7 pick – which turned out to be Markkanen whose averaging ~15ppg. and ~8reb, with very good upside
    *Kris Dunn – a young and talented up amd coming PG, whose averaging ~14ppg, ~5reb, ~6ast, and ~2stl.

    Which, that Bulls trade is looking better and better for the Bulls as the season goes on…One of the rare, true win-win trades for both franchises!!

    If the Warriors are going to have to beat that, then I personally, just don’t think it would be worth it for them. Even if they only get relatively equal value as the Butler trade, that’s basically Klay Thompson, McCaw, Bell, and another solid asset or two…In my opinion, tearing their team apart, wouldn’t be worth just adding one player…

    That’s what makes the Warriors so great is their ability to maintain depth even with their handful of stars…

    Besides, I don’t think this is realistic whatsoever…I’m strongly feeling it’s just Kawakami’s typical nonsense, click-bait, regurgitating garbage and making up rumors….

  3. I have a growing sense that Draymond could be the odd man out in GS soon – KD is doing everything Draymond does, whilst being able to shoot.
    Green is turning the ball over a lot, and either gets way too heated or seems disinterested at times.
    I’m not saying Bell, or anyone else is ready to take his place, but I think they have enough at that 4/5 spot to absorb his loss by committee – Casspi, West, Looney, Bell are all playing well. Even I’d probably play well alongside Steph, Klay and KD!
    A lot of Warrior alumni struggle after being traded – Ian Clark – unremarkable off the bench for NOP, McAdoo – 2way contract and zero PT with the Sixers, BRush – unsigned, Jason Thompson – out of the league, Bogut – waived. My point is, I can’t imagine Draymond playing as well on any other team except maybe Portland. GSW are a stat-inflating enterprise.
    Call me crazy – but I just have a feeling… Heard it here first ;)

    • Also, I’d argue Klay has been the most consistent Warrior so far this season and see him and Steph being Dubs for life. They’re hoping everyone is happy to take less to keep the band together, and that they’ll always attract quality FAs on vet-min salary. Even if KD is a shorter term thing, I think Steph, Klay and Boogie/Brow would be just as good. Steph, Klay and another ‘star’ would always get my vote.

        Honestly I feel Klay is the most underrated player on the team and maybe in the league

    Go find your rug “the dude” and let the grown ups talk. N.O. Will eventually have to trade A.D. I think he has three yrs left and they know he won’t resign, so the sooner they trade him the more they will get back. N.O. is going nowhere with this roster and I believe they finally figured this out. Dubs gm is always looking to make them better. Nobody thought he’d get KD. With this trade Dubs starting five would be insane and only weakens bench a tad. A.D would be used at the 5 and 4 when Drays on the bench. A center shooting threes like A.D. would make the offense even more difficult to stop. And the defense and rebounding, forget about it! Zaza and Allen make for a strong defense coming off bench, helps with loss of Iguadola and you still have Swaggy for points. Dubs could keep this team together and keep adding veterans chasing rings and they’ve shown they can draft impactful players late in the draft. Dubs are going to loose McCaw this year and Bell next yr. They will be to expensive to resign, especially with luxury tax. N.O can afford to resign these young, exciting players and see how the team does with Holiday, Klay, Iguodola,Bell,Boogie being your starters and having some solid bench guys. If that doesn’t work out you can still trade Klay(probably to Lakers),Iguodola(Houston),and Boogie for young upcoming talent and picks. I love Klay, but this would make the Dubs better and I don’t believe it would hurt the chemistry of the team, which is real important.

    Wow just left a long insightful response and it’s nowhere to be seen. I love it when this happens. I need to start copying my responses because this happens to often and it makes me not want to post anything.
