However, Exum and his agent, Rob Pelinka, could attempt to dissuade teams into selecting the 18-year-old this June. According to Ric Bucher from Bleacher...

Ric Bucher: Chris Paul Isn’t As Enamored With Clippers As Advertised

I’ve heard whispers that CP3 isn’t as enamored with the Clippers — or playing with Blake — as advertised, but since it has come from execs on other teams, I’m a little wary about how much credence to give it.

Bucher: Likeliest NBA Draft Formula to Include Three-season Aggregate

For months, regarding the team-by-team order within the 2012 NBA Draft, the hard line has been that the league would cross the bridge as it was approached.  Today, with recent news that the league owners have arbitrarily applied a labor agreement deadline for Wednesday of this week, what was thought to have been a hypothetical is becoming more of a reality: there may not be a 2011...
