The Jazz has piqued the interest of the Clippers in a proposed trade that could include Los Angeles point guard Eric Bledsoe and Utah forward Paul Millsap, according to sources in an ESPN.com report.

Although two sources with knowledge of the Clippers' thinking insisted during All-Star Weekend that Bledsoe would not be moved in coming days and strongly predicted L.A. would stand pat, two other sources indicated the Clippers and Jazz will at least discuss the feasibility of a trade headlined by Bledsoe and Millsap before the deadline.

The Clippers are reportedly reluctant to part with Bledsoe until point guard Chris Paul is signed to a long-term extension, possibly in July. Bledsoe, 23, is also under contract until he becomes a restricted free agent following the 2013-2014 season.

Millsap, 28, could add a young front-court option to the Clippers' expected playoff run, and bring youth to a Jazz point guard rotation -- Mo Williams, Jamaal Tinsley and Earl Watson -- that's long-in-the-tooth.

Bledsoe has also been linked to a trade involving the Celtics sending forward Kevin Garnett to the Clippers.
