NBA Bruins Going Back To Cali

Ronald Martinez


In LA, the NBA offseason has offered nothing short of the kind of comedic drama one would expect from a city that contains Hollywood. There was the on again, off again, on again, off again, and finally on again flirtation between the Clippers and former Celtics coach Doc Rivers. There was the threatened return of soon-to-be-ex-NBA Commish and Sith Lord David Stern's famed "Basketball Reasons" in response to that flirtation. And how could we forget the Lakers' conclusion to the three ring circus known in NBA circles as the "Dwightmare".

For Bruin fans in California, this offseason has also meant the return of some familiar faces to local teams.

The Clippers already had Ryan Hollins and Matt Barnes on their roster last year. The former will stick around for at least one more year and the Clippers committed to the latter for three more.

As noted earlier, they will be joined by Darren Collison to back up Chris Paul for two years after his rather uneventful stint in Dallas.

Not to be left out of the Bruin signing sweepstakes, the Lakers signed Jordan Farmar to a one year deal pending his buyout from a Turkish club. Given that it's a veterans minimum contract that the luxury tax strapped team is offering, this represents a significant financial risk for Jordan, so let's hope it works out and he can get his feet under him stateside.

To ensure that the LA teams don't have a monopoly on Bruins, the Seattle Sacramento Kings traded for the Prince, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, for a couple of second round picks. Luc has been battling knee ailments recently, but if he can get healthy, the Kings have netted themselves a solid defensive upgrade.
