05:32 PM ET 02.18 | Eric Bledsoe has quickly become a player that the Los Angeles Clippers could use as a trade asset. While the hyped rumor of the point guard and center DeAndre Jordan going to Boston for Kevin Garnett could be real, a deal that would ship Bledsoe to Utah for big man Paul Millsap could have more legs to it. Mostly, that's because Garnett has a no-trade clause and during All-Star weekend was adamant that he liked the current Celtics team, who is rallying without Rajon Rondo and is, as of now, a playoff team. While the Clippers would have to get an impressive piece in return for Bledsoe, it's widely believed he will be dealt, as Los Angeles can't utilize him to his full potential with Chris Paul running the point guard duties. Utah, meanwhile, has a hole at the point guard slot and the depth to ship off one of its big men.

Clips get Millsap and you may as well hand them the West.

move him while his value is highno reason to save him as insurance if paul leaves- cause if paul leaves- they are back to the same ole clippers regardless

CP3 will stay out that way. JC and Chauncey are enough in the backcourt w/ him. Jazz's gift pack is good. C's are moving nothing. KG will not be a 3rd string center, especially after he saw how Ray went. 3rd string behind Eminem.

Milsap is an energy guy but What do they do with Odom, Hollins and Turiaf? They have to let somebody walk.
