The Los Angeles Clippers were aggressive in their pursuit of a Blake Griffin trade before settling on a deal with the Pistons.
"They offered him around to everybody," said Royce Young on The Hoop Collective podcast.
"I don't know if that's true," replied Brian Windhorst.
"I mean I know they made calls to Oklahoma City for Paul George," Young said. "I'm pretty sure they made calls to Minnesota for players, so I mean, like, they tried to get some bigger name players. It just wasn't happening."
Griffin is from Oklahoma and had long been linked to the Thunder.
George will be a free agent in 2018 and was a Clippers' fan growing up outside Los Angeles.
