The salary cap is going to decrease and the Clips will have to offer the max or close to the max for Gordon and Griffin. Also, they have Baron's contract and have to pay DJ and possibly even Kaman if he's still around. That is over 80% of the cap space right there and you know Sterling is not gonna go over the cap to pay anyone. Pietrus and Ariza is not that much of an upgrade from Gomes. Gomes is a guy that plays defense and shoots the 3 and is not nearly as inconsistent as the other two guys. Getting a scoring SF would only make things more complicated. That's why I believe the best situation is to leave the team as is and let them grow. I hope they make the playoffs as an 8th seed and give the Spurs all they can handle.
