Clippers, Jazz Talk Eric Bledsoe, Paul Millsap Swap

ESPN reports that the Jazz and Clippers have “a level of mutual interest” in a deal that would send Eric Bledsoe to Utah in exchange for Paul Millsap. The report cites two sources who “strongly predicted that L.A. would stand pat,” but the Clippers are at least willing to ponder a deal for Millsap: “The Los Angeles Clippers’ options for dealing Eric Bledsoe should they reverse course and decide to part with their prized young point guard appear to be increasing before Thursday’s NBA trade deadline. Sources with knowledge of the situation told ESPN.com late Saturday there is a level of mutual interest between the Clippers and Utah Jazz in exploring a deal that would feature Bledsoe as the headliner in a trade package for Jazz forward Paul Millsap. Although two sources with knowledge of the Clippers’ thinking insisted during All-Star Weekend that Bledsoe would not be moved in coming days and strongly predicted L.A. would stand pat, two other sources indicated the Clippers and Jazz will at least discuss the feasibility of a trade headlined by Bledsoe and Millsap before the deadline.”

    makes a lot of sense for the jazz, they probably wont re-sign millsap anyway in order to free up time for up and coming favours and they get a good Young guard in return. don’r know about this move for the clippers though, it will make their frontcourt very deep, but they probably won’t be able to pay millsap this summer either so unless they feel like this move would give them a real legit shot at the Championship this year i don’t know why they would do it.

    Why? Wouldn’t Millsap play behind Griffin?

    What’s the Nets offer?

    Millsap is a pf…and does slam just copy and paste their articles from hoopshype?

    Smart for the Jazz, not so much for the Clips.

  • The Seed

    Millsap can ball, this is a steal for Clippers if this happens.

    I’m a Clippers fan, so I would be kinda reluctant to see Bledsoe go. The kid has so much potential, and this year the Clips have been playing with a certain aura of team chemistry based on a mutual understanding of each others roles. I wouldn’t want something to happen to that team chemistry as a result of trading Bledsoe, however good Milsap may be.

    Brooks, 1ST Round pick….. only thing wrong is Humphries

    Millsap does not deserve to be backing up Blake Griffin. This is stupid. He should be starting somewhere.

    Clippers just wanna make moves just to make moves. This shows of a front office who isn’t use to winning.
