With the looming possibility of Carmelo Anthony departing New York as a free agent this summer,  officials have discussed proposing a trade to the for Blake Griffin, according to league sources.

Sources say Clippers management has also had internal discussions about such a is reluctant to return to the Premier League this summer.The Mirror says Bale is being pushed towards the exit at Real Madrid by boss Zinedine Zidane.But the star is determined not to be forced out without his mega contract worth over £600,000-a-wedeal but that the clubs have not yet spoken to one another about a potential trade.

As of now, neither team is certain that it would make an Anthony-for-Griffin trade, the sources said.

So this is very much when the girl’s best friend tells the boy’s best friend that the girl likes the boy but is too shy to say anything. 

That New York would consider this isn’t shocking. The team’s been a disaster despite the signature win over San Anonio Thursday and with Anthony a prospective free agent, they have to consider their options. While Anthony is likely ney for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.United have already had an opening offer of £40m rejected.Sky Sports says United will have to pay £70m for Wan-Bissaka after Crystal Palace named their price for the 21-year-old right-back.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperateto lean towards re-signing to keep the $30 million the team with his rights can offer him, there’s also the possibility he leaves, or worse yet, opts in for next season and then pulls a similar trade demand as the one that landed him in New York. 

But for the Clippers, it’s a much more complicated problem. Their problem isn’t offense, it’s interior defense. Moving Griffin for Melo doesn’t necessarily help them in the areas they need. However, a deal involving along with Griffin gives the Knicks a young core and a move for along with Melo gives the Clippers the rim protector they’ve been desperate for. The close friendship between and Anthony should not be overlooked, either.

Now that that dream has been ruined, the next best pairing would be in LA. But it’s unclear whether Paul has the pull in the organization to push for such a deal. Additionally, there were numerous reports last season that Paul and Griffin weren’t getting along, though those issues seem to have been resolved over the summer. 

It’s a huge risk for a Clippers team that was thought of as a championship contender entering the season and have the resume to seem like one. But in reality, it hasn’t  that way despite the numbers. Would they really want to interrupt their season in such a dramatic manner? With Chris Paul , it’s likely the team shuts down any such talk. 

But regardless, the fact that both sides have reportedly at least thought enough of it to confirm it to media says that the idea isn’t being immediately laughed out of the room.
