Jackson trumpeted his desire to move Anthony last week — so heavily that he drew a rebuke from the players association, which reported him to the NBA commissioner’s office. A source specified the technical reason for Jackson’s desire to move Anthony, whose style is so rooted in isolation play.

During an interview with ESPN’s Kevin Arnovitz on his podcast on Tuesday, colleague Zach Lowe said he thinks there is legitimacy behind the speculation that Paul will go to the San Antonio Spurs next season.
“There’s been a lot of rumblings about Chris Paul, and I think that’s real,” Lowe says. “I think there’s mutual interest there. I don’t know how real it is given the Clippers can offer a gigantic amount of money and are also a really good team; and the Spurs, like I said, have no sort of cap flexibility to get there. I’m very curious about what they do this summer and who’s on the team next year.”
