Much to the dismay of Clipper fans, athletic big man Chris Wilcox was traded to the Seattle Supersonics yesterday for Vladimir Radmanovic. Both players were struggling and fell out of favor with their coaches, so this trade seems to make sense for both teams. The Clips gain a big man who, at least last year could, hit from downtown, and Seattle gets a great rebounder and inside presence that should fit well with their up-tempo style.
Weezie was a fan favorite because of the energy he brought coming off the bench, and because of the monster rebound-dunks he so often would throw down. Hopefully Radmanovic will be able to contribute to the Clippers' playoff run, otherwise we will have someone else to add to our Vlade Hating category.
