Clippers Owner Likely Unwilling to Trade Blake Griffin

Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers took great offense recently to a report that the team had discussed dealing young star forward Blake Griffin to the New York Knicks for a slightly older star forward, Carmelo Anthony.

A NBA general manager said he has not been contacted by the Clippers about dealing for his power forward, nor has he heard that the Clippers have expressed an interest in moving Griffin. Nor does the GM expect they will, for one particular reason: the owner.

"[Donald] Sterling (Clippers owner)  is not going to do anything with Blake because he’s terrified they're going to say, 'See, you screwed it up again,'" the GM said. "Donald understands dunks and star power, not spacing the floor.” (BleacherReport)
