mid all the crazy scuttlebutt going around the league, there emerges a rumor that makes sense: Eric Bledsoe to the Utah Jazz; Paul Millsap to the Los Angeles Clippers. In this case, you have two teams motivated by very different things, or at least they should be. First, the rumored Clippers-Jazz trade can't happen in its most basic form. Millsap makes $6.9 million more than Bledsoe, and both teams are well over the cap. In fact, the Clippers are hard-capped at....

If the clippers receive burks with millsap, it's a pretty good trade IMO. Millsap is a nice player that could help us out a lot. ....

This trade all depends on how well Milsap can play the 3 spot. If Milsap can continue to put up around 16ppg 8reb than we could potentially have a Big 3 for the future that could give Miami's Big 3 a run for its money, on the other hand if he can't fit in as a SF then he can leave in Free Agency and we will be screwed. ....

I've been thinking about this trade and to me, as good as Millsap is, I don't see him as anything but a PF. No way I see him at the 3, and only see him playing the 5 with a small lineup. Can't see trading EB for another bench player. ....

millsap isn't anything but an around the post player, but don't you guys think that's exactly what the clippers need off the bench? Odom doesn't score, and hollins/turiaf are anything but scorers. If millsap gives us 12+ points a night on 25 min and doesn't turn the ball over isn't that a huge win for the clippers? Ideally though I would really like the clippers to keep bledsoe until after the playoffs and try to find a front court player from....

The Jizz need this trade and win more in this trade than the Clippers. This is a dumb trade where we would not only be helping a conference rival, but would also have to add salary to make it work. Why any GM would want to trade the captain of the second unit of a team that is known for it's second unit's ability to win games is beyond my understanding...Going into the last stretch of the playoffs no doubt. Especially....

The likely chance of us trading Bledsoe for Milsap is less than 1%, lol.

I love Milsap, but this deal just doesn't make sense for us. We don't need to dump Caron's contract because he has shown us this season just how capable he still is of playing a significant role on our team. I am much more open to a trade in which we give up DJ and Bledsoe rather than having to give Caron. I've been all for dealing Bledsoe in the past, but it might be a better idea to hold on....

^Trading 2 young above average players at their respective positions instead of trying to trade a aging vet who's below average sf now, just doesn't make sense to me. ....

the thing that makes bledsoe so valuable is his defense. who do you guys want out there in the 4th quarter of the play offs, billups/crawford or bledsoe? I would honestly much rather have bledsoe out there with cp3 because bledsoe is going to rebound and play defense much more efficiently than billups/crawford. Bledsoe's real flaw is the amount of time he turns the ball over, but with CP3 that will be mitigated. ....
