The Clippers Reportedly Believe They Have A Shot At Signing LeBron James In The Offseason After Trading Blake Griffin
Last night the LA Clippers dealt their franchise superstar Blake Griffin to the Detroit Piston in a blockbuster deal and are reportedly looking to trade off the rest of their stars in the next few weeks.
The Clippers and Pistons have agreed on a deal to trade Blake Griffin for Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, a first-round and a second-round draft pick, league sources tell ESPN.
Sources: Clippers will continue to pursue packages of young players and picks in talks for DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams.
For Clippers, three objectives with the trade were these: Stay competitive on the floor (two starters, Harris and Bradley). Get young players/draft picks and create some payroll flexibility. Organization isn’t interested in bottoming out and tanking.
According to NY Times NBA writer Marc Stein the LA Clippers believe that they have a shot at getting LeBron James in the offseason with these moves.
