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 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.”
