IFWT_Blake Griffin Doc Rivers

The NBA trade deadline is approaching and there’s been a lot of rumblings about possible deals for Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin.  Now we all know GM’s and presidents often lie but Doc Rivers continues to reiterate that they are NOT trading Griffin.

Los Angeles Clippers president and coach Doc Rivers dismissed trade rumors involving star Blake Griffin.

“I’ve told you we’re not trading Blake, but I guess everyone else wants to keep doing that. So we’ll let them do that,” Rivers said Tuesday before practice. “It is what it is. Nothing we can do about it, honestly. It frustrates you when you know nothing’s going on, but what can you do?”

Rivers would not confirm whether the Clippers have received calls from other teams interested in Griffin, who has spent his entire career with Los Angeles after being drafted No. 1 overall in 2009.

“That’s none of [the media’s] business. It really isn’t,” Rivers said. “I hate to say it. It’s none of [the fans’ business either]. Having said that, I think we receive phone calls on every single player, honestly. But it does frustrate me when you hear all the speculation and all that stuff. It’s completely untrue.”

Griffin has been out with injury and will serve a suspension for repeatedly punching Clippers assistant equipment manager Matias Testi.
