Ramona Shelburne: And yes, this does mean Clippers are focused on retaining Blake Griffin in free agency, per league sources.
What that means for Blake Griffin’s future in Los Angeles remains to be seen, but as for the Clippers’ third key free agent, J.J. Redick, the CP3 trade made certain that he will leave town. ESPN’s Brian Windhorst was on SportsCenter after the Paul trade went down, and said, of Redick: “I haven’t even mentioned the name JJ Redick. JJ Redick is walking. He is not gonna be back. That was the worst kept secret in the NBA for the last couple of months.”
Chris Paul: Unbelievable amount of emotions right now- I don’t even know what to say. Lots of love and tears. I’m so blessed and thankful for the ability to play this game, this is the part that no one can prepare you for. To the Los Angeles community and to CLIPPER NATION I say THANK YOU!!! For the past 6 years you all have welcomed not only me but my family. We love all of you. Most importantly, I’m thinking about the kids at LA’s Best and the Brotherhood Crusade. You guys have changed my life. Doesn’t matter where I go to work- we have a lot more to do.
Jackson was supposed to recruit free agents, and instead he chased them away. One longtime league official said the other day that while he agreed with Jackson’s desire to trade Anthony to start a true makeover, he couldn’t understand why the Knicks president went out of his way to trash the forward at every turn. “Doesn’t he understand that Carmelo still has a really big voice amongst the players in this league?” the official asked. “No, Carmelo isn’t the same player he once was, but LeBron and Chris Paul and a lot of very important stars really like and respect him. So what do you think those guys are going to say when Phil tries to recruit them to New York?”
