Like others said, I'm not sure what that means. I don't see KG leaving bc the clippers tell him Paul really really really wants him, pretty please with sugar on top

KG and Rondo are so tight.. Why would he ditch him for CP3?

And he has a house in LA, and he is the godfather (something like that) to Billup's kids, and he might be able to add a second ring this year.... 

The better question is, if your KG, why would you not want to go after one more ring?

Because he's currently going for a ring regardless, too bad you guys don't see it.

It doesn't matter if the team pushes hard or not. It's not like they are making some irresistible offer that Danny can't refuse. It's going to be a pretty big talent downgrade no matter what trade Danny finds for KG if he decides to move him.

The only thing that matters is whether Danny wants to blow it up or now ... and I strongly doubt that Danny has any intention of blowing this team up.

depending on how much Danny likes Jordan, I think Jordan, Bledsoe, and a first or two is a pretty good return for KG.  I personally don't want Jordan (not a great rebuilding trade in my mind), but if Danny likes him then that would be pretty darn good value. 

EDIT: Might be able to add in Odom (who is expiring) and give them Bass and/or Terry as well, clearing off a lot more salary adding to the value from the C's perspective and giving LAC more quality depth for a deep playoff run this year.

how hard can they push without giving up Blake? Not very.

What I see is a Celtic team that is going to use themselves up just getting to the playoffs and have nothing left in the tank. They've gone 8-2 over the past ten games and are only in seventh place, a mere five games out of the playoffs.  Right now, we would face NY in the first round.  We have split the series so far.

So if Chris Paul really wants KG will the front office throw in a first? Will they take on Bass for an expiring?

I think if the C's hear from KG that he is going to retire after the season moving Pierce and KG isn't a terrible idea. To me this deal would be the best we could get for KG so it makes sense. However, I don't think it ends up happening.

"Use themselves up"? I think you're looking at the wrong games. So we split the series against the Knicks... and that means what?

A mere 5 games out of the playoffs? That's plenty of room, and if you think that's little, we also are just 2 games out of the 5th spot, and 3 1/2 out of the 3rd spot... and you know, 5 out of the 2nd spot.

We might be 8-2 over the last 10 games, but we're also 8-1 since Rondo went down. The only game we lost was after a back to back after a triple over time win against the hottest team in the NBA at the moment.

Well there have also been reports that VDN and the front office are split on a potential KG trade. This Woj report makes sense in that the front office's primary concern this year is keeping Paul long term with Blake. Everything else is subordinate.

Woj's source makes complete sense. The Clippers are trying to keep their stars happy. One way to make them happy is to make a legit push for a player like KG. It doesn't mean it will happen, but you can't blame the Clips for trying.

This is from a article in regards to CP3 resigning in LA and them trying to keep him happy at all costs. Uh oh it's real this week will be very interesting.

Quote
"If Chris wants Vinny [Del Negro], he'll be the coach," one source tied to the Clippers and Paul said. "If Chris wants [Kevin Garnett], they'll push harder for it."

A source is needed for a statement that obvious? Source might not even have any access to information to make a statement that obvious.
