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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.
