They like Bledsoe and look for him to make a nice impact next year. Of course, I won't be surprised if he is traded either...
2011-2012 contributions: Bledsoe missed the first month of the season while recovering from an offseason meniscus tear and didn't even get into the rotation until March, but he was very productive in the final month and in the playoffs. In fact, Bledsoe was arguably the Clippers' third or fourth most important player in their playoff run, when he consistently came in and injected energy to the rest of the club during his limited minutes. He finished the team's 11 playoff games with averages of 7.9 points, 2.1 assists and 1.2 steals, but those numbers don't do his production justice. Bledsoe was, to put it simply, a postseason revelation.
2012-2013 prediction: He's a key piece to the puzzle going forward, and it'll be interesting to see how his role changes over this offseason depending on what the Clippers do around him. His status will change significantly based on whether or not Mo Williams chooses to return next season. Ideally, Bledsoe would be a 20-25 minute per-game guard next season, serving as Paul's direct backup but also sharing the court with him at times. But if Williams comes back, that'll be different.
Here is the eighth player capsule in our ongoing look back at the 2011-2012 season for the Los Angeles Clippers and forward at the 2012-2013 season. T
Bledsoe was excellent in the playoff. To be honest, he looked top 2/3 player and sometimes looked like the best player.
He probably will get traded, unfortunately. They need to get some good big inside. Whether Chris Paul likes it or not, they also need time.
What draft picks do clippers have?
I'd love to see Bledsoe go to New Orleans.
Clippers only pick is at No. 53.
Bledsoe is going to be a beast wherever he plays. So much potential. He's going to be a hot name.
I bet Kobe wouldn't mind having him stay in LA but with a slight change of scenery. I figure the Lakers will be making a ton of trades this summer and EB would be nice to see with Kobe and D. Howard.
Howard wants out of Orlando and the Lakers need to ditch Bynum. That would be a decent trade for both teams, imo. Granted Howard is far superior to Bynum but Orlando needs to trade him while they still can.
