He'd probably get minutes at both SG and backup PG for this team. Lowry-Bledsoe would be a small backcourt, but so is Rondo-Bradley, and it was beautiful -- defensively.

Bledsoe is small but he has the wingspan of a SG (which is as important defensively as height) and plays high energy D. Despite his size, he'd be an upgrade on defense and offensively as a role player he's a nice fit at SG too. On top of it, he's a massive upgrade as the backup PG.

I don't think the team gets worse actually, and if it does, it's marginal.

But again, I think the Clippers would ask for more pieces in that deal.
