For those not Insiders... ""He deserves to run his own team, he deserves to be a starter somewhere,'' Paul recently told me. "So when the time comes, I'm going to be the biggest advocate for him to get the money he deserves.'' also "When other clubs call the Clippers to ask if Bledsoe's available, they're quickly and decisively told no. The Clippers will keep Bledsoe this season -- first as insurance in the highly unlikely scenario that Paul leaves as a free agent, and second to help them win the crown this season. The likeliest scenario has the Clippers trading Bledsoe around draft time."
