Amid of a flurry of trade talks, the Los Angeles Clippers have engaged the Indiana Pacers in preliminary discussions about trading point guard Eric Bledsoe for forward Danny Granger.

ESPN.com's Marc Stein and Ramona Shelburne reported Sunday that the talks have developed separately from discussions with the Boston Celtics involving Kevin Garnett and head coach Doc Rivers.

From ESPN:

Sources say that the Clippers, meanwhile, have already engaged the Orlando Magic and Indiana Pacers in separate trade discussions headlined by Bledsoe, with Orlando's Arron Afflalo and Indiana's Danny Granger as the respective trade targets. Indiana, according to sources, is leaning at present toward keeping Granger for the final season of his contract in hopes that the former All-Star swingman's return from knee surgery can help the Pacers close the gap on Miami in the East, but L.A. has been operating for months under the premise that Bledsoe, once Paul re-signs, will be dealt before becoming a restricted free agent in July 2014.
Though they're currently separate talks, the Clippers' insistence on keeping Bledsoe out of any discussions with the Celtics could doom those talks. ESPN reports that both sides will wait to see if either side budges. But if the Celtics don't, the Clippers are expected to move on from their targeting of Rivers.
