Baron Davis and Elton Brand opt out, hopefully end up in LA

and I don't mean the Lakers.

Baron Davis could be coming to the Clippers and join Elton Brand after he likely re-signs with the team. If this goes down, it would thrust my beloved Clippers back into contention for a playoff spot but I'm not getting my hopes up just yet.

Too many times deals like these that make so much sense from a fan standpoint fall through. In addition, as of now, it looks like Davis' preference is to stay in Oakland with the Warriors but joining the Clippers is definitely an attractive scenario to him.

If we don't land Davis, then we still need help at the point where first round draft pick Eric Gordon and the young Shaun Livingston will likely share time. If you don't remember, Livingston is coming off this horrific ankle injury:

Yeah, dude probably needs an ice pack or somethin after that one...

UPDATE: The deal went down. I'm already drinking to celebrate, getting ready to buy new jersey, etc. WHOOOO!
