The Los Angeles Clippers are set at the point guard position. They have Chris Paul starting, and they have Eric Bledsoe coming off the bench. Bledsoe is good enough to provide an immediate impact with just about any other team in the league, but the Clippers do not want to let him go. But the trade rumors and interest from teams is going to continue.
Marc Stein of ESPN says the Clippers are trying to "dissuade" trade talks involving Bledsoe because they don't want to part with him, but teams have come calling. Bledsoe's talents are obvious, and there are plenty of teams that could use a point guard - including the Dallas Mavericks, the Chicago Bulls, and the New Orleans Hornets. Whether the Clippers will eventually give Bledsoe up, though, remains a mystery.
Bledsoe is averaging 8.5 points and 2.7 assists per game in just 18.0 minutes per game. He would do so much more if he were a starter. Bledsoe has been in the league for three years, has played in 154 games, and has only started 26 of those games.
The Bulls just signed Daequan Cook and the Mavericks are working on their point guard spot, but there would be plenty of interest if the Clippers would open Bledsoe up to the market. Teams facing injuries would especially be interested, but Bledsoe would want to (and deserves to) go somewhere he can play everyday.
