After Thursday’s draft, Orlando Magic general manager tried to all but squash the Eric Bledsoe-for-Arron Afflalo rumors, saying didn’t think the trade was “standing” and it may be “kneeling.”

On Monday, the rumor was back. Ken Berger of CBS Sports, citing a source tweeted “Clips-Magic still discussing Afflalo for Bledsoe/Butler swap.”

Berger went on to mention the Clippers will pursue Tony Allen and O.J. Mayo.

This seems like more posturing from the Clippers. Both players are out of their price range so a sign-and-trade would be needed.

UPDATE: ESPN’s Ramona Shelborne reports there are “rumblings that Clippers and Bucks are discussing deal involving JJ Redick and Eric Bledsoe.”

UPDATE #2: According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Clippers and Mavericks are discussing a side-and-trade deal involving Bledsoe and guard O.J. Mayo.
