Report: Celtics Have Talked With The Clippers About Potential Blake Griffin Trade
Twenty-four hours after the Sacramento Kings shocked the world by trading DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans, the Los Angeles Clippers are trying to do the same.
Although Clippers GM/head coach Doc Rivers shot down these exact same trade rumors months ago, multiple reports have the Boston Celtics in talks with the Clippers about a trade that involves Blake Griffin.

Sources told ESPN’s Zach Lowe, the two teams have “talked intermittently” but a deal is “extremely unlikely”.
We’ve seen unlikely trades happen before. In 36 games this season, Griffin is averaging 21.9 points, 8.8 boards, and five assists.
