Most of the NBA rumors right now deal with free agency, but that doesn't prevent the Los Angeles Clippers from trading away Eric Bledsoe in an effort to upgrade on the wing.
The talented point guard has been the subject of trade discussions for a while now, and five teams have emerged as favorites to deal for him. Whether any of them actually convince the Clippers to part ways with the young floor general is anyone's guess, but let's take a look at the potential deals that could sway L.A.
All of them center around Bledsoe, and each has the Clippers receiving talent at the 2 in return. That's the primary need, so it makes sense for that to be the baseline of any deal.
Before moving on, it's important to remember that Bledsoe doesn't have to be traded. The Clippers are sure making it seem like he does, but Doc Rivers and Bledsoe get along well, and the new head coach might block any trade from happening.
Let's forget about that and treat Bledsoe with the urgency that the trade rumors seem to be using. If the Clippers have to deal him, these are their best and most realistic options.
