Again I say, who the hell has to consider this? Durant, a free agent to be has been linked to several teams, and the Clippers would only be able to land him via sign-and-trade.
Outside of those well-known suitors – Washington, Houston and Miami – there’s another California team determined to make a bid for Durant, league sources tell The Vertical: The Los Angeles Clippers. If the opportunity comes to move Blake Griffin and replace him with Durant, the Clippers won’t hesitate, sources said.
Teams are calling on Griffin trades now, but Clippers president and coach Doc Rivers seems determined to play the year out with Griffin and see how far the team advances in the playoffs. Eventually, the Clippers will determine how intrigued Durant might be in becoming a Big Three with Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan.
Rivers would definitely have to make significant changes if the Clippers flame out in the playoffs, but this would be monumental.
