ESPN: Clippers/Jazz Execs To Discuss Milsap for Bledsoe Trade

Per ESPN, The Clippers are reluctant to part with their young, rising star guard, Eric Bledsoe, but are also interested in playoff experience to take advantage of their success so far this year by making a push to go deep in the playoffs. No trade is imminent--the executives have simply agreed to meet and discuss feasibility. The Clippers would have to send more than just Bledsoe to make salary caps work and that is a further consideration as Clippers management hesitates to break up a winning combination.

ESPN also had a piece on the top point guards in different categories per five of their writers. Best defender? Two out of five selected Bledsoe. Their comments:

Arnovitz: Sure, he roves a little, but Eric Bledsoe pressures the ball relentlessly. What the most diligent defenders do for five to 10 seconds, Bledsoe does for full defensive possessions. In order to get into their stuff when Bledsoe is on the floor, offenses have to either go early, or swing the ball to the wing then set.

And this:

Koremenos: Eric Bledsoe. Bledsoe is an absolute nightmare for opposing guards. Whether it's playing on or off the ball, he can make even a simple post-entry pass an impossible task. His length, strength, effort and athleticism making him a complete package.

It would be hard seeing Milsap go, however the defensive intensity at point guard we'd get in return is intriguing.
