Clippers trade Thomas, Mobley

The already struggling Clippers (2-9) will take the court tonight against the 76ers (5-6) without two of their top five scorers. Earlier today, the Clippers traded Cuttino Mobley (13.7 points) and Tim Thomas (9.5 points) to the New York Knicks in exchange for Zach Randolph and Mardy Collins.

The already struggling Clippers (2-9) will take the court tonight against the 76ers (5-6) without two of their top five scorers. Earlier today, the Clippers traded Cuttino Mobley (13.7 points) and Tim Thomas (9.5 points) to the New York Knicks in exchange for Zach Randolph and Mardy Collins.

 

The Clippers will be without Mobley and Thomas for tonight's 7 p.m. game.

 

The Sixers did not seem too concerned with the impact of the trade on tonight's game.

 

Said guard Willie Green: "We're going out here to get a win. We're not thinking about the trade. I think that when teams are missing players, they often come together and play harder."

 

Said Sixers head coach Maurice Cheeks: "It affects us because we were preparing for Mobley and Thomas ... It'll be a little different."

 

Said Clippers head coach Mike Dunleavy: "Getting a player like Zach cost us two highly skilled veterans in Cuttino Mobley and Tim Thomas, but we feel that the move will help us both now and in the future. We wish nothing but the best of success for Cuttino and Tim with their new team."

 

(Seems like former Temple guy Mardy Collins was an afterthought in this deal.)
