Clippers’ beat writer Bill Plascke believes that Blake Griffin’s injury might force the Clippers to trade and tank.
Plaschke attempted to broach this topic with Lawrence Frank, the team’s president of basketball operations, but a spokesman said Tuesday that because the Griffin injury just happened, the team was not prepared to comment on the long-term plan. DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams hold the most value for a depleted squad that lost Patrick Beverley for the season and has already been without Danilo Gallinari and Milos Teodosic in the last few weeks. It’s definitely a situation to monitor going forward as the Clippers are probably not going to be able to make the playoffs and they could get some valuable draft picks in return if they really decide to blow it.
