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?
“I thought it was a done deal, I was going to the Clippers,” said Barnes. “The day before I was supposed to meet with Doc, they decided to go in another direction with Wesley Johnson. That was obviously my first choice at the time, to be close to my kids. Golden State was always a choice; they just didn’t have very much money. I’ve always been the guy to take less money to play on a better team, but the price gap was too far on this one.”
The Clippers, despite their cap restraints, managed to re-sign Jamal Crawford, Austin Rivers, Wesley Johnson and Luc Mbah a Moute while bringing in Bass and Felton, as well as Marreese Speights and Alan Anderson, the latter going undrafted in the same 2005 class as Paul, Felton and Bass. “I’m excited about it,” Paul said about the new additions. “We definitely signed some veterans, some seasoned NBA guys who’ve been through a lot of different situations.”
