NBA trade rumors latest update: Los Angeles Clippers to trade Blake Griffin

Los Angeles: NBA trade rumors continue to persist. There are reasons to believe that the Los Angeles Clippers may go for Kevin Durant and send their very own Blake Griffin to the Thunders. This is going to be important movement of two great NBA stars.

For the last several weeks rumors about Blake Griffin moving out of the Los Angeles Clippers doing the rounds. But it is only now that it has become clear that Clippers have already decided to trade him for Thunders’ Kevin Durant.
There is no denying the fact that Griffin is an exceptional player. During this season on November 25, 2015, he recorded season-highs with 40 points and 12 rebounds in a loss to the Utah Jazz, with the Clippers dropping to 7–8 after starting the season 4–0. But then he suffered an injury and later had a run in with a team staff. Reports suggest that he suffered injury in hand that he sustained on January 23 from hitting a member of the team’s equipment staff, who was also his friend, during an argument at a restaurant in Toronto. Since then his problems with Clippers have only compounded.

Kevin DurantAlmost everyone is sure that if the Clippers trade one of the best power forwards in the game, they would want a huge haul in return. Unless that haul comes, the Clippers will stick with Griffin in hopes of something bigger eventually surfacing. That could include using the former No. 1 overall pick to lure the biggest free-agent in the class of 2016: Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant. According to Lowe’s column on the trade deadline, “Conflicting noise is spouting from Clipperville, but the smart money is on L.A. waiting until the summer to really get busy on the Griffin front. Doc Rivers wants to give this core one last postseason shot, and the Clips need Griffin just in caseKevin Durant picks them, triggering a Griffin-for-Durant sign-and-trade.

Now it seems that rumors have some basis. He’s no longer untouchable. The Clips are listening, even right now, and they’ve rarely listened before. If they get wind over the next four days that they’re out of the Durant sweepstakes, they could accelerate the Griffin trade timetable. It’d take a monster offer to pry him away before the draft, but the ground is trembling (As I’ve written before, Rivers needs to think very hard about whether trading Griffin is a good idea).”
