Like previously said, it makes you think it's probably posturing. If the Clips decide to pull the trigger, I'm sure it will get done.
A minute ago on twitter!!
FWIW on ESPN Clippers head coach VInny Del Negro said no trade is happening. They are content with what they have and don't plan on any moves...too bad
The Jazz play like azz when the J ain't workin'.
I'm sure most of you know by now but if Bledsoe + Butler for Millsap (or something like that) goes down then this is our cap situation:
About $34 million coming off the books this Summer with only Marvin Williams, Caron Butler, Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Gordon Hayward, Alec Burks, and Jeremy Evans (and Kevin Murphy if we choose) on the roster.
That means next summer, we would currently have $16.5 million coming off with Marvin Williams and Caron Butler. Bledsoe, Hayward, AND Favors all are restricted free agents then. We definitely should have enough money to sign all of them which is why it is very important to not take back any big contracts past the 2013-2014 season.
If the Jazz were to offer Jefferson a contract that he would require this Summer, it would seriously hurt our chances of signing all of the Core Five (with Bledsoe). I know it is a long way in the future but I know some people were concerned that Jefferson gets resigned if we make this deal. I'm not so sure.
