Teams in need of a backup point guard would love to get their hands on Eric Bledsoe. However, until Chris Paul is locked into a long-term contract, don’t expect the third-year Kentucky product to change teams.

The Clippers could certainly use another big man but it appears they will use other means in an effort to obtain one.

Playing just 18 minutes a game, Bledsoe boasts a defensive rating of 94.7 and a player-efficiency rating of 19.73.

With CP3 expected to stay in Los Angeles, Bledsoe will be one of the hottest commodities of the offseason.
