Not Endorsing Kerry

It's days like today when we're reminded why the Clippers are the worst franchise in all of professional sports. What are they thinking?ESPN.com is reporting that the Clippers will not match Quentin Richardson's offer sheet from the Suns and instead acquire Kerry Kittles from the Nets for a second round draft pick.

LAist has written on several occassions that we like Richardson, and think he's a rising NBA star. A six-year $42 million contract is almost a bargain for the young athletic scorer, and Donald Sterling would still have plenty of cap space to acquire a veteran point guard. But instead the Clippers have acquired an overpriced 30-year old mediocrity, whose inconsistent shooting won't improve with Marko Jaric instead of Jason Kidd at the point.
