 For D Jordan, Eric Bledsoe, and C Butler.

 Not bad. The Clippers would have to give up Picks too.

 Howard
 Griffin
 Barnes G Hill
 J Crawford
 Paul

The Lakers would probably rather just let him walk before giving the Clippers a dynasty.

Howard and Griffin on the same tean would make for some historic team free throw percentages

Howard could just be an upgrade over Deandre Jordan, and would actually dominate cause Chris Paul would never let him attempt his mediocre robotic post moves.

I wouldn't underestimate the value of Bledsoe in such a deal. He could start and thrive in DiAntoni's system. He would easily put up 18-8-6-3-3 a night , maybe even 22-24 points per game instead of 18

It's actually a pretty decent trade proposal by Simmons, maybe he wants a job like Hollinger's

Really like Bledsoe.  Didn't Danny want to trade Ray for him last year?

 He even said "hey maybe there's hope for guys like us" referring to Wilbon and himself.

Horrible for the Lakers.  How does that trade make them even remotely better?  Jordan would be a worse fit in D'Antoni's system than D12 is.
