It's looking more and more like the Clippers will stand pat at today's deadline, barring a late change, tweets Scott Howard-Cooper of NBA.com. The Clips expect Eric Bledsoe to have more trade value closer to a June draft that lacks top point guards, adds Howard-Cooper. Ken Berger of CBS Sports confirms Los Angeles' position, saying a Bledsoe deal is becoming less likely (Twitter link).
Bledsoe, who hasn't received a ton of playing time in L.A. this season behind Chris Paul and Mo Williams, represents one of the team's most attractive trade chips. The Clippers had reportedly been exploring trades involving Bledsoe that would net the club a two guard.
