Eric Bledsoe has been a popular subject of NBA trade rumors over the past month, and DeAndre Jordan's name has been mentioned as well. But L.A. Clippers GM Gary Sacks told The Los Angeles Times on Saturday that the rumors aren't starting with him:
"I haven't called anybody to say, 'Hey, we have Eric Bledsoe and would you like him?' Or, 'We have DeAndre Jordan or we have anybody and would you want them?' That's not where I am right now with this team," Sacks said in a phone interview from Houston on Saturday. "That's not where we are."
Sacks did indicate that teams are calling him, though. The latest rumor has the Clippers and Boston Celtics considering a trade that would send both Bledsoe and Jordan to Beantown for Kevin Garnett. That is less likely to happen because KG has a no-trade clause. On Saturday he told the media that he will not be waiving that for any deal.
