General supervisor Neil Olshey said Friday the group thought "the price was just too high" in what it would have to provide up to attain John.

Olshey dropped to recognize whom the Trimmers had provided in return for John but their offer evidently involved middle Bob Kaman, arrange protect Eric Bledsoe, ahead Al-Farouq Aminu and their No. 1 select in the 2012 set up. Reviews encouraged the Wasps also desired protect Eric Gordon involved.

"There wasn't one element or another element that murdered this cope," Olshey said. "The mixture settlement that we were going to have to express to them was just too much and it was going to hamstring muscle our business in the future."

"By claiming Billups for about $2 million, the Clippers were able to solve the dilemma of not having another point guard on the roster -- Mo Williams likely slides into the Jason Terry sixth man role, if he isn't included in the trade or waived with amnesty.
