Jared Dudley Says “I Had To Sacrifice Myself” For Clippers

Chris Paul, Jared Dudley

It was a tough 2013-14 season for Jared Dudley. After finally getting a chance to play for a contender again when the Clippers acquired him from the Suns as part of their three-team Eric Bledsoe trade — ironically involving the Bucks — Dudley was going to team with fellow shooter, J.J.
