LA Clippers to keep Lou Williams, DeAndre Jordan?

The Boston Celtics' options before the National Basketball Association trade deadline are being narrowed down for them, it appears.

Two names, heading into tomorrow's National Basketball Association trade deadline, that are pretty much expected to be moved are Lou Williams and DeAndre Jordan.

Lou Williams and the LA Clippers have reportedly "gathered significant momentum" on a contract extension. Stay up to date on the latest news, rumors and rumblings from our team of reporters.

A new deal is said to be within reach prior to Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline for the veteran guard earning $7 million in the final year of his contract.

On the the National Stock Exchange, the wider Nifty50 declined by 167.15 points or 1.52 per cent to trade at 10,849.75 points. A year later, he brought in long-term capital gains tax, saying now the market has matured.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski added to the report that the third year of the deal does feature a team option.

Basically, it was assumed that the Clippers would trade Williams to a contender, as it didn't appear that they would have much use for a 31-year-old when they were entering rebuilding mode. The 6-foot-1 guard averages 23.3 points, 5.3 assists, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.1 steals on 43.9 percent shooting from the field and 38 percent from behind the three-point arc. His strong performances garnered interest from teams throughout the league, including the Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers, Oklahoma City Thunder and Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Clippers will continue to pursue trades for Avery Bradley and DeAndre Jordan as they look to clear cap space to pursue big name free agents this summer.

Despite all the shifting parts, the Clippers are 27-25 and sit just a half game behind the sliding Pelicans for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
