They also cancelled visit with Ray. Looks like Miami or Boston

- Its Los Angeles. With New York easily the two most attractive places to be in the United States.
- Good team with a guy like CP3 and others like Blake and Butler and with an actual shot of going all the way. And with him on the team, their chances go up very quickly.
- And lastly, if he wins, it won't be because he ring chased on Lebron, Wade and Bosh's back. If Clippers wins he will be recognized for it..

I figured Ray to Clippers was a bit of a pipe dream for some... seems like a big move for a guy who has expressed his reservations toward uprooting family for another cross-country move.

Solid signings, nonetheless. Crawford is a bit of an inefficient knucklehead but so was Nick Young to some degree. With vets like Billups and Paul in the back court, they can absorb the potential hit from a player of the JR Smith variety.

Maybe Ray has told him he wants to go to Miami?

You'd have to figure they jumped on Crawford because Allen told them he wouldn't be signing with them, although it is the Clippers, so maybe they just forgot the check first or something.

When you think about it, Billups and Crawford are very similar players. Billups just prefers to do it from behind the 3pt line, Crawford anywhere. But Billups has the ring, so its okay for him to chuck.

I have a feeling with if U connect the Pieces Allen Told Clips He is Signing Elsewhere ( Miami or Boston but most likely Miami with all the hints Lebron and Wade have been dropping on Twitter)so Clips wasted no time jumping on Crawford and resigning Billips which are both Good moves for them.
