I summon the words to express how much disdain the Clippers would have for this deal.

For the umpteenth time, why can't anyone comprehend why the Clips aren't even looking to move Bledsoe until CP3 is locked up long term?

The Jazz has been looking to move Rajah Bell for years now, absolutely nobody wants the guy.

Where is Paul going? Seriously, the Clips will offer the max and he will take the max. Is he not in the same boat as every other big name free agent waiting to sign a new deal rather than an extension because he can make more money that way? Why would he leave the Clippers? Great, young big to play with in Blake and in a big market, what situation is he going to find that is better?

And they wouldn't be doing the deal because they want Raja Bell the player, they just want his contract instead of Butler's. They have other players on the roster that can produce just as well as Butler and much cheaper.

Would be dependent on whether the Clips believed Favors was the guy to pair next to BG at the end of games. I think that's their biggest problem right now
Butler is far better than Bell is now

No way does the Jazz do this.  They are way too high on Favors.

This is absolutely correct. DeAndre is still who they would prefer to move into that role for the future, but it he inconsistent this season. Favors at the very least would be a terrific 3rd big, and have a 3 man rotation with those three would be very good and the minutes could easily be spread around.

Not the point. Again...

Is this true? I haven't heard anything either way on Favors, just that they prefer to trade Jefferson or Millsap. I would assume that would mean they like Favor and Kanter, but not sure.

But if they can't get a deal for either of them they like, why not move one of the young bigs instead? We've seen them trade Williams before with no warning, why would Favors or Kanter be untouchable?

Favors and Kanter are the future of the Jazz.  Either Jefferson or Millsap are going, but Favors and Kanter are not going anywhere.

I don't see Clippers giving up Bledsoe for Favors, because I would assume they'd rather get back Al Jefferson. The only that worries me about the Clippers is DeAndre Jordan. He has good games then has terrible games. Clippers can't afford to have him sh*t the bed in the playoffs, Al Jefferson at the Center would be the answer for Clippers to battle the Spurs, should they meet in the Semis or WCF
