Thunder May Pursue Blake Griffin?

With Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook agreeing to a renegotiated contract yesterday to remain with the Oklahoma City Thunder for at least two more seasons, the speculation about his immediate future and a possible trade will sort of fade out for a while.

However, with Westbrook on-board, there is a new rumor in Oklahoma City to watch and that is the Thunder’s potential pursuit of L.A. Clippers forward Blake Griffin.

On the surface it seems foolish and somewhat unlikely to believe that Griffin lands in Oklahoma City anytime soon. However, there are many in the NBA that believe if the Clippers cannot get over the top this season, there will be big changes made to ensure the Clippers do not lose star guard Chris Paul to free agency next summer

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is making progress from a Grade 2 left MCL sprain and will begin participating in portions of practices starting on Saturday. He will be re-evaluated in one week.

Curry, who has traveled with the team on the last two road trips, underwent his second re-evaluation on Friday and it indicated he’s ready to increase his on-court rehabilitation. The intensity level will gradually grow for the two-time MVP.

Golden State has a 3-0 lead in its first-round playoff series against the San Antonio Spurs. Curry is expected to return to action during the second round.

Warriors officials are taking a precautionary approach. They will hold Curry out as long as possible to ensure that he’s closer to 100 percent upon re-entering the lineup, sources say.
