NBA Rumors: Clippers Believe They Can Re-Sign Blake Griffin After Chris Paul Trade

The Los Angeles Clippers might be on the verge of a massive rebuild, but don’t tell them that.

The Clippers reportedly have agreed to trade point guard Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets, who appear ready to make more big moves. And L.A. might be in danger of losing one of its other stars, too, with Blake Griffin set to opt out of his contract and hit free agency.

But the Clippers apparently haven’t given up hope of bringing back Griffin. In fact, they believe the Paul trade “clears the way” for them to re-sign the forward, per the Los Angeles Times’ Brad Turner.

So, L.A. doesn’t appear ready to blow it up quite yet. But if the Clippers’ master plan doesn’t work, that might be their only option remaining.
