NBA: All Star Game-Team PracticesHere’s the latest update on my report: the Lakers won’t do a sign-and-trade if Dwight Howard leaves, unless they get an offer they don’t expect for someone special. You know, like Blake Griffin and Eric Bledsoe.

Talk about unexpected and special.

To cut to the chase, the Clippers have not offered it, and, I was just told by someone with knowledge of the consternation among the Clippers, won’t. Even if was more like a notion they were toying with than a plan, I can tell you where it started.

Clippers.

I know why something so audacious would even come to mind: Dwight is beloved by Chris Paul and Eric Miller; Donald Sterling’s son-in-law and a new force in the front office.

And I know why they dropped it: It blew up all over Twitter, et al., before they ever decided if they were serious.

The Clippers, of course, are busy frying actual fish, in talks with the Celtics who have offered to free Doc Rivers and trade them Kevin Garnett—for Bledsoe, DeAndre Jordan and two No. 1 picks. The Clippers rejected it, and are trying to keep Bledsoe out of it, as talks continue.

If it’s moot, it’s still interesting to think what the Lakers would have thought of it.

At 24, making a reasonable $16.4 million next season, Griffin combines excitement, drive and value in the NBA’s new financially-constrained era.

At 23, Bledsoe is a major talent, waiting only to go somewhere he can start. With two years left on the rookie scale at a total of $6.3 million, he’s one of the highest-value gems around. On the other hand, if you’re the Lakers, can you imagine sending Dwight to play alongside CP3 in your own city?

If neither team was likely to have the, uh, guts for this one… which was how it turned out… it was fun while it lasted.

All two hours of it.
