Despite trading All-Star forward Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons on Monday, the LA Clippers are not planning on tearing down the roster and trading away their best players before the Feb. 8 trade deadline, coach Doc Rivers said on Tuesday.

“We make this trade and then everyone thinks we’re just trading everybody away. That’s not true,” Rivers said when addressing the Griffin trade for the first time publicly. “But that’s what’s out there. Sometimes you can’t control the narrative. You just can control your job, and that’s what I have to do.”
