Skinner, just months after refusing the option on his contract to stay with the Clippers, has decided to… sign with the Clippers. Talk about returning with your tail between your legs. The dude must’ve incorrectly thought that in this depressed economy there’d be more money for him out there. I’m hoping he wanted out because he wanted to play with a contender, but then after seeing all the moves the Clips made, he realized they now were a contender (that is a contender for the playoffs — I’m not having delusional visions of us being anywhere near the top o’ the league). Either way, welcome back Brian Skinner. I’m not sure we missed you.
