The common belief in Los Angeles is the Clippers intend to re-sign point guard Chris Paul and oft-injured Blake Griffin, but hold mixed views on retaining shooting guard J.J. Redick who will become a free agent. That will be the key to whether the Knicks and Clippers can make something happen in July — if Redick agrees to a sign-and-trade. According to some league executives, the only deal that makes sense for both sides is packaging Redick, combo guard Austin Rivers and adding wing man Wesley Johnson for financial purposes in exchange for Anthony and perhaps one of the Knicks’ two second-round picks in next month’s draft. At the trade deadline, the Clippers’ offer of Rivers and 37-year-old Jamal Crawford was turned down by the Knicks.
Storyline: Carmelo Anthony Trade?
Austin Rivers yelled at Griffin to knock it off, harkening back to a recent conversation in which the team pledged to maintain its focus in moments of adversity. Griffin was ready to pounce, but immediately calmed himself. The source cited the brief episode as an example of Griffin, and the team as a whole, learning how to accept these as teaching moments. They also capture a team for whom tension constantly simmers below the surface.
