The thinking goes something like this: If OKC is genuinely worried Durant will leave in 2016, they have to look to get something in return for him this year. Blake Griffin is from Oklahoma City. The Clippers keep topping out in the second round and might be willing to shake things up. It's a nice theory. Juicy, too. But neither team has ever seriously discussed it. And Clippers owner Steve Ballmer has made it clear to the entire organization that he wants Griffin to be a part of the franchise for his entire career. ESPN.com

When asked if he was relieved he wasn't traded, Crawford shrugged his shoulders and said: "It is what it is." Whether the Clippers were thinking about dealing Crawford -- the NBA's reigning sixth man of the year - or not doesn't seem to matter.

You think it was real?" FoxSports.com

Arash Markazi: No Jamal Crawford trade is imminent I'm hearing but he's not "untouchable" as we head into the trade deadline. Twitter
