08:09 AM ET 06.09 | A spot for Evan Turner may be opening. 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 teams 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.

Makes sense for Philly. But what does it mean for the Clips? Iggy is plays the 2 & 3. Mo Will I assume plays PG and Gordon the 2, I believe they have a decent 3 already so how do they juggle this? Nothing wrong with having too much talent but similar talent?? Anyways, I don't watch any Clips games so I'm seriously asking coz it kind of seems like the PG scenario in Minnesota (bringing in another Wing to an addition of 2 players who also play on the wing)...

Not sure if it works. Brand and Kaman didn't really worked out before. Clips need a center still.

If im not mistaken they actually took the Clippers to the playoffs when they were together....

Bc they had a role guy starting at the 3...Getting Iggy gives them a athletic defender that can match up with the wing guys in the nba and that score a little....Also they have Jordan that was a better fit than Kaman was with Griffin....So then they have a much more younger athletic team....

the reason you have heard this before is because it was on here about 2 weeks ago, but the story has resurfaced...

While all the trade talks for Iggy are heating up, I am wondering w t f is ATL doing sitting on Smith??

I want them to at least compete on the Kaman trade. Josh and Williams for Kaman and a pick (or no pick, I don't care). Make a move already!

This is your typical Clipper. It is a means to be a perpetual lottery team. Go Clippers Champions of the NBA lottery.
