The Clippers are *not* looking to trade G Luke Kennard, multiple league sources told @latimessports . 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.

The Clippers have been linked to Kyrie Irving amid the enigmatic star's contract dispute with the Brooklyn Nets. LA will need to clear some cap room for Irving, which is why Kennard and the $13.7 million he's owed next season emerged as a potential sacrificial lamb.

The Clippers, however, hold Kennard in high regard. He's one of the top marksmen in the league today, and he is integral to LA's offense. In 70 games played last season, the 6-foot-5 shooting guard averaged 11.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists, while also connecting on 2.7 triples at a league-best 44.9-percent clip.

Looks like Kennard isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
