According to Sean Deveney on twitter, The Clippers have inquired about KG for Butler & Bledsoe.

Butler doesn't seem attractive to me, would rather have Odom (expiring) & Bledsoe. Also, not sure how this rumor got started, but Bledsoe isn't a FA after this season. Not only is he under contract for next season, he's a RFA with a QO in the 2014 offseason. Thoughts on this rumor?

They can inquire all they want, particularly while we are giving them a beatdown.

got to admit I'm not enthusiastic about a trade with the Clips.  don't find enough value in Bledsoe and/or Jordan to make it worth moving KG even if KG only has 2 more years left.

I'd have to think a Jordan/Bledsoe package would be more enticing for KG, and if we were blowing it up, we could do worse from a value standpoint, but the problem with Bledsoe being the top piece we get back in a trade is that our only current building block for the future is Rondo, and Rondo/Bledsoe wouldn't work together.

Makes sense. KG and Griffin really compliment one another.

We can play 5 guards at a time in Doc's mind probably.  Now that would be some serious small ball.

DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe for KG works on the trade machine. Jordan has 3 years and Bledsoe has 2..

At that point it's about prospects and assets. Acquire a few more and try to flip them for established talented players like in 2008. I guess a lot of that depends on Rondo's recovery because he would be the Pierce in the equation.

Pretty much the only way I'd consider doing a deal with LAC

Clarkson/Ennis/Napier
McCollum/Jack/Young
Evans/Pondexter
Turner/Randle
Okafor/Zeller

Ask KG if he wants to go to a contender or if he wants to stay, and just have him decide.

(I take it he'd want to stay)

I don't trade KG.
Once you are labeled 'the best' you want to stay up there, and you can't do it by loafing around.
