Wow, everytime I turn on the TV or radio there’s a new breathless rumor about the Clippers making a trade today. When you hear these, keep in mind that most of these are more like possible scenarios teams have discussed.
I just got in touch with a person in the Clippers war room about a potential deal with Seattle, where the Clippers would trade the No. 7 pick and a future (lottery protected) first round pick to the Sonics for the No. 4 pick. My source said that “it hasn’t happened and probably won’t.” But confirmed it had been discussed.
Basically, the deal hinges on whether Miami and Minnesota pass on OJ Mayo. It only goes down if Mayo is still there at No. 4.
