Eric Bledsoe Goes to Clippers in Trade
No details have been revealed on what, if any, conditions are attached to the Clippers' pick.
Bledsoe starred with lottery picks John Wall (No. 1, Washington), DeMarcus Cousins (No. 5, Sacramento) and Patrick Patterson (No. 14, Houston) at the University of Kentucky under John Calipari. Touted as a point guard out of high school, Bledsoe was forced to play primarily off the ball in Lexington, owing to the greatness of Wall.
Bledsoe will now back up Baron Davis in Los Angeles, where quite a roster is being assembled. The Clippers have Blake Griffin and Eric Gordon on board, and picked explosive small forward Al-Farouq Aminu with 2010's No. 8 pick. For the Thunder, based on history, owning a Clippers draft pick typically works out all right.
