Bledsoe on the block?
So I have heard that Clippers looking for 3rd star and the report is they have interest in Afflalo and Granger.
Would either of these trades work and how would it benefit each team?
Honestly I don't know whether or not I would want Bledsoe in Indiana. I still hold out for an experienced PG who can run an offense and not turn it over (Calderon). He is very good, but unproven so I think I would rather trade Granger for PG and PF depth and use Indiana draft pick on a shooter/scorer like Crabbe, Hardaway or Rice Jr.
Calderon, Jerebko and 7th pick for Granger, Johnson and 23rd pick.
Pistons have the 8th pick, not 7th.
Clippers shouldnt even be thinking about moving Bledsoe until they deal with the CP3 situation.
He forced out Collison, then left. Now N.O. sucks and hasn't recovered. He said himself 2 months ago, the Clips have to trade Bledsoe. He forced out Vinny, now the team has 5 players under contract and no coach. But you all think he's great.
He's pushing out Bledsoe, just the same as Collison. There is no reason to have that valuable of a trade token just sitting on your team not being utilized. CP3 wants to win. He knows he has the PG spot locked down, nobody's going to play over him. That's not because he's a prima donna, it's because he knows he's the best in the league at the PG position.
Bledsoe should be traded for somebody who can start and make the Clippers a better team. Talent-wise, the right move could make them a championship contender, after all. The time to deal Bledsoe is now.
How did he force out Collison? Collison's rookie year Chris was out with injury, and Collison replaced him and shined. When CP came back, the management saw an oppurtunity to get a nice piece to play with CP by trading Collison due to the fact he looked so promising after that year. Chris didn't force out Vinny. Throughout the season CP was quoted many times as supporting Vinny. It was managements decision to fir Vinny, not Chris Paul's. The team has 5 players under contract because, well, everything has to end sometime. Contracts go by year's and end. THis is the year they just happen to end. They have no coach because they just fired one and are looking for an upgrade so they can win a championship.
Bledsoe is overrated! Whoever he gets traded to, the GM will look like an idiot
