NBA Rumors: Los Angeles Clippers Trying to Trade Eric Bledsoe for J.J. Redick?

The Los Angeles Clippers have been pretty active this Summer and they don’t appear to have any desire to stop.

According to ESPN Los Angeles’ Ramona Shelburne, the Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks are reportedly in talks to swap Eric Bledsoe for J.J. Redick in a sign and trade deal.

Per Shelburne:

Rumblings that Clippers and Bucks are discussing deal involving JJ Redick and Eric Bledsoe.

Redick is currently an unrestricted free agent and he would need to agree to such a deal.

Bledsoe has become expendable for the Clippers who verbally agreed to a contract with Chris Paul earlier today.

While the Clippers would obviously love to keep the talented point guard out of Kentucky, Bledsoe is in the final year of his rookie contract and will become a restricted free agent at the end of the 2013-14 season, resulting in him receiving a contract the Clippers will be unable to match. They’re hoping to get what they can before their backs are against the wall come this February during the NBA trade deadline.
