This is apparently a deal Steven A. Smith says he's been hearing today on First Take.

No Effing way this happens, but still interesting.

That has to be a joke. I can't believe Sacks/Roeser would even entertain the idea for a nano-second.

Clips might as well change their name to the Celtics and move to Boston and the Celtics can call themselves the Clippers and move to L.A.

Less paperwork.

And at least then we wouldn't have to hear about "16 banners" from laker fans... we could say we have 17.

LOL...

Yeah, it's probably the most ridiculous rumor I've heard yet. No way the Clippers lose their true poster boy. Probably more Boston's dream than L.A.'s.

Lol coaches can't be traded. Griffin for KG is a joke KG is about to retire, Pierce is a free agent. Idiotic rumor.

Why would they want to get older?? Top priorities, go get Riddick NOW, second trade DJ and EBled for Vucevic and Affalo and find some 6-10 thug re bounder/defender and keep most of team in tact (minus Billips and Hill)

I'd rather keep BG than CP. How about let's just do DJ, Bled & 1 billion draft picks for Pierce and Doc? Doc in my opinion is the best coach in the league and is worth a hefty penny.

Ridiculous rumor. I've never in my life heard of an all-star who has not even reached his peak yet being traded for old, declining veterans who are close to retirement. That trade doesn't even pass the common sense test.

NO FU**KIN WAY!!! should the Clippers do this unless they definetely want to give up on their future & probably Chris Paul. I'll take Doc Rivers as a coach on the Clippers anyday though.

This is just as ridiculous as that one trade proposal made (And I can't remember exactly who) by either Chris Broussard or probably Stephen A. Smith which included Blake Griffin and Eric Bledsoe or something like that to the Lakers.

First of all, the Clippers know that Blake Griffin is something special. Arguably Blake Griffin started changing the Clippers identity before CP3 join the Clippers... Blake Griffin is already a star, still improving, still young, and is one of the faces of the NBA than you have CP3 who knows this so why would CP3 allow Blake Griffin to leave? Don't get me wrong Garnett and Pierce are will respected players who have broken records and set milestones throughout there years in the NBA but Garnett and Pierce already have one foot out the door. Do the Clippers and CP3 really want one maybe two year rentals and lose Blake Griffin and Bledsoe along the way? Not even the addition of Doc Rivers would make this trade acceptable. Long story short, Blake Griffin is to the Clippers what Paul Pierce has been the Celtics throughout the years... Untouchable.

The Celtics are desperate. Enough said. The Clippers have the ball on there court regardless of what team pursues Eric Bledsoe but more so with the Celtics especially with this sign of desperation the Celtics have shown. The Clippers should counter with this trade proposal... Garnett, Green, and Doc Rivers for Jordan, Butler, and Bledsoe. The Celtics get two young assets with Jordan and Bledsoe which is a lot better than nothing plus Butler's expiring contract and the Clippers would finally get rid of Jordan (Which every Clippers fan seems to be all for) being replaced by Garnett, most likely a one year rental which is not necessarily a bad thing, who is a defensive veteran leader and Green who is a great young all around player. The addition of Doc Rivers is a plus not a must.

Possible Starting Five:

Chris Paul

Willie Green

Jeff Green

Blake Griffin

Kevin Garnett

the fact that stephen a smith said that the clippers are talking about it is mind boggling. if this happens it might go down as one of the worst trades in nba history.

what has stephen a smith been smoking? wow, one of the stupidest rumors ive heard ever. griffin is going nowhere. if anything, its DJ who leaves. Dj+ebled+caron+1st rd pick for garnett+pierce works fine. its like saying cp3 for rondo straight up makes sense.

What scares me is that Stephen A is ususally on the money. He was the first that leaked out word about the big three in miami forming. Lets hope Stephen A. is wrong

Blake griffin is a cash cow. Paul pierce and kg are ball of farmers but they are done as superstars. Here is another name that fits that description: Chauncey

Trade makes no senses at all. Aren't KG and Caron free agents? If Clips want KG, just go after him in free agency. Plus, no way Blake gets traded before DJ.

This is stupid trade who thinks of these things, if we werent willing to trade blake for dwight than why would we trade him for 1 year rental on players past their prime on expiring contract.. a much more fair trade would be dj, bledsoe, butler, and. 1st rounder for kg and pierce. And doc rivers isnt worth giving up 1 of our star players

This was so absurd we didn't even need a source but thanks for posting it anyway. The celtics don't have a package of players worth trading griffin for let alone adding in Bledsoe. I think we up with pierce and kg for Bledsoe Caron and dj

This was announced by Stephen A?

It seems more like it came from Bill Simmons, the ultimate Clipper hater.

Steven A. Smith probably started out by saying that Doc Rivers, Blake Griffin, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce were close dear friends of his.

Bill Simmons is actually a Clippers season ticketholder. I never knew Stephen A was such a Celtics fan because this is clearly something that can only come from the mind of a Celtics fan. It's like Clipper homer Michael Smith spreading a rumor that NBA circles are discussing a trade that will send James Harden to the Clippers for Grant Hill. Makes no sense.
