Default Re: KG for Bledsoe & Butler?

This would be a great trade for the Clippers.

Deandre gums up the paint. If the 2nd big can't help on Griffin because they have to respect Garnett's jumper, Blake will have far more opportunity downlow.

Additionally, we have a big than can run a reliable pick and pop with CP3 (his favorite play) and a guy who plays better defense.

Celtics fans are correct in that other teams could make better offers but what they are failing to see is that with Garnett's No Trade Clause the Celtics would conceivably have very few options on where to trade him (in any).

I've heard that his family lives in LA in the off-season and LA is a great place to live... if he can live in LA and win a championship it would make some sense to allow a trade to the Clippers.

I doubt he wants to go live in OKC (who have better pieces). NYC/MIA have nothing to offer.

That's 5 players and they so happen to be our 5 best players. The minute CP3+Blake got injured their performances for the rest of the playoffs plummeted and the Clippers blew a 3-1 series over the lead just about.

Except for the fact they have said multiple times that DMC is not for trade

kg is probably not going anywhere so this deal makes way more sense at this time next year. cp will have already signed his contract, butler will be an expiring contract, and bledsoe will be on the final year of his rookie contract when the clippers really have to trade him.
