Re: Clips Have More To Lose

In response to Fierce34's comment:
DeAndre Jordan still has 22.4m left on his contract.
KG only has the 12.4m guaranteed for next season.
If the Clips refuse to include Bledsoe in a trade for Pierce and KG, the Clips might end up losing CP3. Blake Griffin might be the only star player left on the Clips roster next season.
There are a lot of possible scenarios.
Would the Lakers do a sign and trade with the Clips?
Reports right now are saying the Lakers will not do a sign and trade with the Clips for DH12.
What the Clips should do is trade Blake Griffin, Caron, Bledose, Jordan, and Jamal or Willie Green for Pierce and KG.
Clips get Pierce then waive him so that the Clips will surely have cap space for DH12. No need for a sign and trade, just convince DH12 to join forces with CP3 and KG.
The Clips already used the amnesty on Ryan Gomes. As long as Jordan's contract is with the Clips, there's no way the Clips can go under the salary cap to go after DH12.
And who would want DeAndre Jordan who only shoots 40% from the FT line. Can't use Jordan late in the 4th qtr, that's for sure!

I agree with you about Jordan. He is overpaid and, in my opinion, is a young version of Perk with single digit rebounds & scoring & a poor foul shooter. I'd like a center like Hibbert, Cousins, Howard, Gasol( a bit younger) and even Bogut who can give you 15-20 pts and 10+ rebounds. But get Blake Griffin for PP, yup we could live with Jordan. But Bledsoe too must be in the deal and he and Rondo could be the best PG duo in the game.
