We know he can guard SG's in this league. He's guarded Manu, Kobe, Wade you name it. I truly think most of his inconsistency and lack of confidence this year can be attributed to Vinny's coaching. If we get a good coach in here who gives Bledsoe the starting SG job I'm in no hurry to trade him. If we can get Hayward or something fibe but please don't trade him just to do it. He's a future star and all he needs to focus on this summer is that shot and decision making. Defense and rebounding is great already and elite.

Fear is setting in on the idea of trading him because I already know he's going to blow up under his next coach. Only an idiot like Vinny could fail to see what he had. Whenever asked about Bledsoe all he could say was "Well he's so athletic".

It all depends on CP3,if he wants it Bledsoe will stay.

It's been a while since there's been a subtle Vinny bashing thread. Anyways the PG spot will always be our deepest position as long as we have CP so lets focus on our weak spots like SF and Center. Bledsoe can net us a pretty good wing player.

I am worried about getting poor return for him. If we get a good wing player with upside or package him with DJ for a quality C then I would be happy. Hopefully we trade him to an EC team.

Bledsoe is our ticket out of the DJ roller-coaster and whoever calls about him needs to be made aware immediately that he is only being traded in a package with DJ!

So Bledsoe is responsible when he plays well but when he doesn't, it's the coaching? Funny how that works. I blame Bledsoe and Bledsoe only. He knew he might be traded to a team where he could start and what doe she do? he doesn't show up after his injury and plays scared. What about his timid play after he injured himself, 86?

Joe considering the circumstances yes. You want Vinny to get credit when he barely plays Bledsoe and benches him after his first mistake? Bledsoe gets some blame for bad games but was terribly used. Clipper post games where media constantly questioned Vinny about his use of Bledsoe? He was clueless about it.

If Vinny will use Ebled a lot of time what happen to CP3 riding the bench

Our weakest position was SG. Bledsoe doesn't need CP3's minutes but should have gotten 5-10 extra minuter

S a game at SG.

Considering what circumstances? Most Clippers post games talked about how Bledsoe lost it after his injury. late in the season it was about how Bledsoe is playing nonchalantly out on the floor.

Bottom line, role players take advantage of the time they're on the floor. No matter how much or how less time you have. He was never the same after that fall. We all saw that.

Hind sight is always 20/20. It's just soooo obvious that having Bledsoe guarding Tony Allen throughout the 1st round would have shut down Memphis's Twin Towers of Z-Bo and Gasol. How does Vinny not see this? We clearly needed worse shooters on the perimeter so our players would attack the DPOY in the paint. Derpity Derp Derp Vinny

The idea is to package DJ and Bledsoe for a solid center and another piece but the Clippers can not make a move until CP3 signs extension... Which I am sure it will happen

I don't think the Clippers will trade DJ just yet... It will all depend on the coach

A scenario of Butler and Bledsoe seems more likely... Maybe get Trevor Ariza, Aaron Afflalo, or Wilson Chandler

I'm not

Trade him and get someone who's 6'6 and can shoot.

I would not package him with Butler, because Butler has value in his own due to his contract status. We do need a SF and if not a shooter, a serious defender for sure as most all-star guys are at the 2-3 position and need guarding. Butler can easily be traded even later in the season to a team that wants to free cap room.

Maybe it's not CP's personality. Who s the best PG there? HIM. Who does he trust most? Him. Who would you like to see play the whole game if he didn't get tired as we all do? CP.

In a year EB's too expensive for a back up PG. If we can start him at SG fine otherwise trade him. He plays like he's 6'4". As i've said before he isn't ready for what ever reason to run a team. Probably VDN's fault?? With CB and CP around he should be good.

If we can package him to get rid of Jordan it's a no brainer. I'd rather start Odom than Jordan

Strangely enough the best trade is if LAL keep D12, DJ and EB for Pau. One year $20 mill for a servicable center and they get a backup center and a young PG depending on free agency.

Of course won't happen

I'll put down the crack pipe, just a thought.

My bad, I was going off of his combine measurements..........but I'll give him his measurements in shoes. Besides, it looks better in the media guide.

The Jazz have nothing at PG unless they draft someone, sign someone or re-sign someone that didn't bring them much last season. I don't see why they wouldn't be up for it. Alec Burks is looking more and more like an athletic combo guard in a 2's body.......and Bledsoe is an athletic combo guard in a PG's body. Perfect marriage of misfit guards

Last season/36 min

Brand 34 years old

12 ppg;

10 reb;

FT % 71;

FG % 47

Read double double. Can start if BG is hurt and do a good job.

Played 21 min/game 72 games

Odom 33 years old

7.1 ppg

10 reb

FT % 46

FG% 40

Brand like LO has long arms but plays tough. Can bang with Zbo. LO is a better ball handler. Brand is reliable and has his head screwed on straight.
