Clippers, Dunleavy Sever Ties

For Immediate Release
Clippers, Dunleavy Sever Ties
Tuesday, March 9, 2010 - 5:25 pm (PT)

The following is a statement from the Los Angeles Clippers:

The Los Angeles Clippers and General Manager Mike Dunleavy today have severed ties. Dunleavy previously also served as the team’s head coach from 2003-04 until February 4, 2010, when he resigned as head coach.

The organization has determined that the goal of building a winning team is best served by making this decision at this time. The team has simply not made sufficient progress during Dunleavy’s seven-year tenure. The Clippers want to win now. This transition, in conjunction with a full commitment to dedicate unlimited resources, is designed to accomplish that objective.

Neil Olshey, presently the Clippers’ Assistant General Manager, will assume the duties created by Dunleavy’s departure. He joined the organization as Director of Player Development for the 2003-04 season. He served as an Assistant Coach in 2004-05, and was elevated to the position of Director of Player Personnel from 2005-06 through 2007-08. He assumed the role of Assistant General Manager prior to the start of the 2008-09 season.

Olshey has played an important role in the completion of several significant team transactions, including the deals which brought Marcus Camby, Craig Smith, Rasual Butler, Steve Blake, Travis Outlaw, and Drew Gooden to the Clippers, among others. He also played a integral part in administering all preparation for the Clippers’ last four NBA Drafts, which produced Al Thornton, Eric Gordon, DeAndre Jordan, and last year’s #1 overall pick, Blake Griffin.

Doubt this will change anything. In the end it comes down to Sterling who is the problem.

It only took this long.

But yes Sterling is the main problem.

gotta give it to the Clips, they very well may be making the PO's next year. They have a decent foundation of players and with the cap space, they very well can bring in one or two more good platers to help that squad. However to think that LBJ would want to share the LA spotlight with Kobe, when he can have his own city in CLE or NY is just crazy.

What a joke.

Sterling will continue to be the laughing stock of the NBA who laughs all the way to the bank.

I always liked Dunleavy as a player and a person but his clock management as a coach was consistently some of the worst I've ever seen though he was good at assigning matchups.

The Kubiak of the NBA, it sounds like.

Until he's gone, Clippers fans are screwed. If he's around long enough, Blake will have likely have a new team in the next 4-5 years.
