Late Saturday evening, ESPN.com reported that there is a level of “mutual interest” between the Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz in a potential trade that would see Jazz forward Paul Millsap head to Los Angeles in exchange for Clippers point guard Eric Bledsoe.

The Clippers better act fast because the deal would immediately make Los Angeles a better team.

Millsap is the sort of young frontcourt player that would add a new dimension to an already-dynamic Clippers offense.

But more importantly, the 6’8” forward would add a presence on the boards, as he averages 7.4 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game. These numbers would rank second on the Clippers if he were with the team today.

The Clippers rank 17th in the league in rebounds per game and would greatly benefit from Millsap’s quick hands.

Yes, Bledsoe is a 23-year-old point guard with tremendous upside. But the Clippers already have Chris Paul to run the offense and, as he is just 27, hopefully will for years to come. With the All-Star Game MVP slated to become a free agent at year’s end, the time to win is now in Los Angeles.
