07:32 AM ET 01.15 | Clippers coach Doc Rivers recently -- and very quickly -- dismissed the notion that the team had discussed dealing Blake Griffin to the Knicks for Carmelo Anthony. "Would they be better with a Kevin Love or a LaMarcus Aldridge? Sure," says one NBA executive. "Even David West might be a better fit." A general manager who has one of those three players said he has not been contacted by the Clippers about dealing for his power forward, nor has he heard that the Clippers have expressed an interest in moving Griffin. Nor does the GM expect they will, for one particular reason: the owner. "Sterling is not going to do anything with Blake because he's terrified they're going to say, 'See, you screwed it up again,'" the GM said. "Donald understands dunks and star power, not spacing the floor."

He'll find a way to screw it up. If those players are better for the team and are available and you don't do anything then you screwed it up...lol

I thought Doc was acting as GM? Let him decide and then take the credit or blame.

Clippers might be better with Love, but not with the others mentioned.

The clippers will always be the clippers for as long as sterling owns the team. They should have movd to Anaheim years ago, they'd be dominant in the OC market which is half the LA ($) basin. As it is now, they're still second fiddle to a horrible Lakers team playing at Staples Center. Doc was right to cover those banners up, just never feels like your at a clippers game

The evil and despicable mini-Donald should just go away with his **** and slum apartments and leave the basketball stuff to Doc. Better yet go away and die a painful death.
