    It would be incredible if Morey could parlay a Dwight move into getting Blake somehow. I really think they're going to need a 3rd big-time guy in order to convince Durant to come.

    Smart on Nuggets. That would have given the Clips ultimate strength in depth

    Thank the Nuggets for turning down that ridiculously lopsided offer. Griffin is not that great.

    Not happening. I don't see the Clippers trading Blake to a team in their own conference that already has a superstar. Just can't see it.

    I would have done that if I were nuggets. Harder to get super star than role players.

    True, especially marketing-& money-wise it would've been huge for their franchise.

    Nuggets are/were afraid he'd walk in a year (if this was even discussed at all).

    Report came from Chris Broussard

    we need to get a 3rd team involved or Clippers will have Dwight and Deandre Jordan lol. Twin towers with CP3 would be cool though

    I wonder if Dwight's not traded this year will Woj's credibility be questioned like Broussard's

    Don't remember the tweet but Woj didn't say Dwight was being traded. I think he said the Rockets have put feelers out. Different from some of the things Broussard had said in the past.

    I'm sorry but if that's true, then Denver is a bunch of idiots. time and again, history has shown that whoever gets the best player in a deal almost always wins the trade in the NBA. There may be an exception here or there, but very rarely.
