Clippers’ Blake Griffin Told He’s “Untouchable”

NBA RUMORS: Blake Griffin

Blake Griffin

If the Los Angeles Clippers can clear enough salary cap space, the team would like to pursue LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. The pair will become free agents starting July 1.

But one player they have no interest in moving is forward Blake Griffin. Even though they’d need to move big time players and money to make a run at either James or Anthony, Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles reports that president and coach Doc Rivers has told Griffin on several occasions that he considers him “untouchable” in trade talks.

Griffin has averaged 24 points per game this season.
