Default Re: KG for Bledsoe & Butler?

On top of that, it doesn't seem like the Kings really care for former ROY Tyreke Evans so why not trade him and try to get some more picks out of it? Clippers could offer Billups, who's barely played and is an expirer, while the Celtics could also offer Jason Terry to the Clippers. The trade would look like this:

Clippers receive: Kevin Garnett, Jason Terry
Celtics receive: Demarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans, Lamar Odom
Kings receive: Eric Bledsoe, Chauncey Billups, all the picks that would be involved in the deal.

Clippers get better specifically with KG anchoring the defense, and Jet being able to replace the punch of the bench Bledsoe was.

Celtics get to go forward with a core built around Rondo/Evans/Cousins/Green and get rid of the Jet who really hasn't worked out.

Kings get rid of two young players they weren't high on and get one back while getting some picks.

Maybe the Kings don't really get much, but I'm just thinking aloud .
