Latest On Blake Griffin

The Clippers think it might take Blake Griffin two months to recover from the broken right (shooting) hand he suffered when he reportedly struck equipment manager Mathias Testi, reports Zach Lowe of ESPN.com. That’s in contrast to the timetable of approximately four to six weeks that the team put forth Tuesday, though coach/executive Doc Rivers later later called that timeframe unrealistic.

Rivers would probably prefer to trade Griffin rather than Chris Paul or DeAndre Jordan if he were to deal one of the team’s three max players, several league sources insisted to Lowe. That partly because Rivers knows Griffin would net the best return among them, Lowe adds. Still, the Clippers boss doesn’t want to trade any of them, according to the ESPN scribe, even though he suggested to Lowe before the season that another playoff disappointment would leave him open to foundational changes. For now, Rivers has indicated that he thinks the Clippers have a realistic shot at the title this year, and he isn’t willing to trade assets of value for first-round picks, Lowe writes.

Griffin is making nearly $18.908MM this season on a contract that runs through 2017/18, which is a player option year. Paul can also opt out in the summer of 2017, while Jordan couldn’t opt out until 2018.

If they wanna give us Crawford I would give tony snell also
Or even Doug mc to sweeten the deal it would work out for both teams
Rose butler dunlevy griffen gasoline
Paul reddic Paul taj and Dj with a 6 man in mitirioc
Plus Paul passing skills could easily make the players the Bulls send for griffen way better
