Ken Berger of CBS Sports tweeted that the Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers are discussing a trade that would send Jamal Crawford to Los Angeles for Ryan Gomes and Eric Bledsoe.
Crawford, who has been no stranger to moving from team to team throughout his career, is one player who has been discussed to possibly be on the move before Thursday's trade deadline.
The 31-year-old has averaged 14.3 points and 3.8 assists this season in his first year with the Blazers. A viable shooter and wing player, he might be one of the best shooting guards on the block to fill the the shoes of another premier shooter in Billups, who was averaging 15.0 points and 4.0 assists per game before his injury.
As for Bledsoe and Gomes, they are currently playing 7.6 and 13.9 minutes per game off the bench. Bledsoe is averaging 1.7 points and 1.1 assists per game, while Gomes is averaging 2.5 points and 0.4 assists per game.
