      To be a good player Eric gets traded a lot, wonder what his locker room attitude is like.

      Seems that way. The Grizzlies are trying to shed some of their glut of guaranteed contracts, Beverley and Rondo are entering the final year of their deals. Somehow the Clips save enough in salaries to save $30 mil in luxury tax. The Clippers had demoted Beverley to the bench last season, alongside Rondo.

      Bledsoe started 70 of 71 games last season, still puts up some decent stats. I don’t think the Grizzlies acquired him with any plan other than to trade him, and that is what they did. Bledsoe will be 32 in December and playing in his 12th NBA season. He is entering the twilight of his career, or is already there.

      Bledsoe was part of the deal that brought BJ Boston’s draft rights to New Orleans from Memphis, before NO sent BJ on to the Clippers for a future draft pick last week. So, the two went from being a part of a trade for each other between NO and Memphis to teammates.
