The Clippers seem better because their schedule has been favorable without him. That being said though I would have definitely tried getting the Denver package of Faried, Gallinari, and Will Barton for Griffin and Stephenson. It gives them a strength at the 3 slot which they desperately needed and I'm a big fan of Faried's tenacity. Barton's also is having a solid year. Plus the Nuggets core of Mudiay, Griffin, and Jokic would have been fun. Griffin being a free agent next year though pretty much shot any attempts at a trade though.
