The Los Angeles Clippers have re-acquired Eric Bledsoe to help blossom their roster for another championship run.
As first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Clippers are acquiring Bledsoe from the Memphis Grizzlies. Veteran guards Patrick Beverley and Rajon Rondo are among those going to Memphis. Wojnarowski added that Beverley and Rondo are not necessarily certain to remain with the Grizzlies.
The move also reunites Bledsoe with the team where he started his career after the 2010 draft. Bledsoe saw limited playing time in his first Clippers stint due to the presence of Chris Paul and lob city taking off.
Bledsoe started 70 games for the New Orleans Pelicans last season, averaging 12.2 points and 3.8 assists per game. He’s also only a season removed from a second-team All-Defense selection.
By making this move, the Clippers are showing they want a more reliable presence at the point position, considering Beverly only played 37 games last season, and Rondo is pretty much at the tail end of his career.
