The Clippers would like to be part of the Ryan Anderson sweepstakes, tweets Ben Bolch of The Los Angeles Times. However, L.A. is hampered in its pursuit because its next tradeable first-round draft pick isn’t until 2019.
Several teams have expressed interest in the Pelicans’ free-agent-to-be power forward, with the latest being the Cavaliers. A three-way deal that would send Kevin Love to the Celtics is also being discussed. The Heat, Kings, Wizards and Pistons have also been mentioned as suitors.
The Clippers are known to be in the market for a stretch four, and were reportedly close Tuesday to acquiring Channing Frye from the Magic. Since then, Cleveland has offered Anderson Varejao to Orlando in an attempt to get Frye, but the Magic apparently plan to reject that deal.
