In the weeks leading up to the NBA draft, rumors of potential deals have been running wild.

Those rumors included the Los Angeles Clippers, who were reportedly interested in shopping a key guard. According to multiple reports, the Clippers were poking around about a potential Luke Kennard trade.

The former Duke star led the league in three-point shooting last season, so he was a popular trade chip. However, the Clippers have reportedly thought better about the potential trade.

According to a report from Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles won't be trading Kennard.

"The Clippers are *not* looking to trade G Luke Kennard, multiple league sources told @latimessports," the report said. "There had a been a report suggesting the team is shopping last season’s most accurate 3-point shooter — but the sources were adamant that is not the case."

Kennard was a solid role player for the Clippers last season, racking up 11.9 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. He also led the league in three-point shooting at a 44.9-percent clip.
