I usually reserve writing up all my rumors I receive each morning for The World Famous LayupDrill Rumor Mill.
However, I had a few links in my in-box this morning about some speculation started on the net. ClipperBlog.com featured this on their site (the best Clippers Site around, by the way), but here is the deal:
The Clippers Get
Third pick in 2009 NBA Draft, used to select Ricky Rubio
2010 First Round Pick via Phoenix
The Thunder Get
First Pick in 2009 NBA Draft, used to select Blake Griffin
As the NBA Draft draws near, we will hear more elaborate trade rumors from various teams in the top five, but I wanted to look pose the question to everyone. If you were the Clippers, and OKC offered you this package, would you make this deal?
The Clippers would team up Ricky Rubio with Eric Gordon, and their veteran front court would make them respectable. Meanwhile, OKC would be playoff contenders instantly with the addition of Blake and B-Diddy.
