Clippers Acquire Mario Hezonja, Others in Monster Deal
Los Angeles -- The Los Angeles Clippers acquired shooting guards Mario Hezonja and Gary Harris, as well as point guard Ty Lawson in a three-team trade with the Brooklyn Nets and San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday afternoon, the team announced. In the deal, the Clippers also acquired power forward Sani Sakakini from Brooklyn and shooting guard Malcolm Miller from the Spurs.

As part of the trade, guards D'Angelo Russell and Rashad Vaughn were sent to Brooklyn, along with forward Trey Lyles and big man Jordan Mickey. Point guard Mike Conley was sent to San Antonio along with a future second round draft pick.

"We're thrilled to add all these guys to our team and continue to set a great culture here in Los Angeles," Clippers GM Dylan said to reporters shortly after the deal was announced. "An opportunity to get an all-star level player in Mario, a great, starting level guard in Gary and a terrific veteran like Ty was something we couldn't pass on."

The three are expected to be in uniform for the Clippers tomorrow night against Miami.

I like the deal for the Clippers. If they can mesh this team is a lot better compared to the begin of the season.

I think it was a solid deal for you to get some talent on the team. Hez is definitely a volume scorer who will light up the stat sheet for any team that's he on so I expect that to continue in Clipper Land. I like the addition of Lawson and Harris too who you got for incredibly cheap. Good job turning this team around so far.

Hezonja should put up some good numbers for you in LA, however I do think he needs a bit more preference work to maximize his efficiency. This was a good deal to get some talent though.

Best of luck with Hezonja in LAC. Hopefully you can maximize his scoring ability without him shooting you out of games.

I'm not sure yet if I should like it or not due to us owning the pick. Harris was a great catch for free.. on the other hand I'm not sure if hez is an improvement compared to the players sent out to Brooklyn
