Elgin Baylor out at Clippers

Two years removed from executive of the year honors in the NBA, Los Angeles hoops legend Elgin Baylor was apparently ousted as Clippers' vice president of basketball operations and general manager.

The move, in the middle of pre-season camp, leaves coach Mike Dunleavy in the role of GM as well. Here's some analysis by ESPN's J.A. Adande:
