Against better logic, I was hoping hard that the rumor with the Clippers would result in a blockbuster trade announcement bringing in Griffin, Bledsoe and either DeAndre Jordon (C) or Butler (SF) for Pierce, KG and Doc.
I would prefer Jordon or a first round pick over Butler, but I pull the trigger with any three options. Heck, i would even throw in any two of: Terry, Lee, Wilcox or Melo for all four!
If the discussions were really initiated, unfortuneately as time goes by, it is more and more unlikely that Danny will get anything done. Danny has not emphatically denied the rumor. He is saying that its silly and not worth even commenting about. He did not say... NO. Maybe it's time that Danny lower expectations and realistically value his players (and coach) or nothing will ever get done and we will be rebuilding with detritus for years. Very disappointed to see this extraordinary opportunity die on the vine... and if it wasn't real to begin with, Danny should start the conversation NOW!
