Clippers are not in a trading moodPosted by Inside Hoops
The Clippers indicated Wednesday that they have no plans to make any trades before the NBA’s deadline Thursday at noon PST.
Even Coach Vinny Del Negro said after practice the team is not looking to make moves because he and his staff like the team that they have.
The most prevalent rumor had back-up point guard Eric Bledsoe and center DeAndre Jordan going to the Boston Celtics for center Kevin Garnett.
Because Bledsoe, 23, and Jordan, 25, are so young, Del Negro was asked whether he needed to talk with them about the rumors.
“No, because if I felt it was necessary, I would do that,” Del Negro said. “But there are a bunch of needs out there. Like you said, they are young players that teams covet and that’s a good thing. That’s a good thing for us. That’s a good thing for them.
