David Aldridge Rumors
David Aldridge: Serious question: why do you or anyone who actually plays in the L care about a meaningless ranking by journalists you don’t know/respect? Andre Iguodala: But would be fun to rank yall….
David Aldridge: Strong interest in Jonathan Simmons, now a UFA after Spurs pulled QO. A couple of teams in front; decision could come by the weekend.
David Aldridge: Steve Ballmer was not letting Blake Griffin walk after CP3 trade. Would have been hard to keep both, but Clips pulled out the stops for BG.
