The Los Angeles Clippers have had a nightmarish 2017-18 campaign. With Blake Griffin on the shelf for potentially two months, his front court mate DeAndre Jordan has been the center of trade talks to several teams.
According to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times in Wisconsin, the Clippers have narrowed in on who they would want in return in talks with Milwaukee.
Sources said Clipper officials have targeted three Bucks in any deal for Jordan. One is John Henson, who is currently the team’s starting center, while the others are reigning Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon, who lost his starting spot when Bledsoe came aboard, and standout swingman Khris Middleton. The Clippers, I’ve been told, are adamant in acquiring at least two of the aforementioned Bucks and may even demand all three of them.
The Clippers asking price seems a bit steep. Currently sitting at 8-13 and 10th overall in the Western Conference, it’s probably in the best interest of Los Angeles to use this season as a rebuilding year for the future.
