Doc Rivers told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical that Blake Griffin isn’t going to be traded.
“We are hoping that Blake ends his career playing for the Clippers, period. So when teams call we say we have no interest,” said Rivers. It sure does sound like the Clippers have gotten the band back together for one more run, and that’s taking a look not just at the Griffin situation but all of their free agent moves, too.
These words from Doc don’t discount the possibility of a trade, and they may also indicate that Rivers isn’t getting the types of offers that move the needle so maybe they’ve decided to turn the page. One thing is for sure — they have practically no chance of winning a title and they have hard choices to make about their future.
