Pistons, Clippers discussing Blake Griffin trade

Posted January 30, 2018

The struggling and stumbling Detroit Pistons have made their starting shooting guard Avery Bradley, available in trade talks. Griffin has averaged 22.6 points and 7.9 rebounds in 33 games this season. Wojnarowski describes the Pistons' asking price for Bradley as "significant" suggesting they won't be in total sell mode at the February 8 trade deadline.

It's an intriguing proposal, in that it allows the Pistons to get something in return for Bradley's expiring contract - he'll become an unrestricted free agent this summer - and bolster their roster with some size.

According to Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, the Lakers have offered Clarkson for Pistons guard Avery Bradley.

Moreover, the Nets' first round pick might be considered a necessary price tag for the Cavaliers, if it gives the team a better chance to win another title, perhaps the team's last chance, with LeBron James uncertain future. "Bradley will be a free agent in July, and Cleveland would have the ability to exceed the cap based on Bradley's full Bird rights".

Bradley, 27, has been bothered by a groin injury, which caused him to miss seven straight games earlier in the season.

The Pistons, who are three games back of the Sixers for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, have stumbled as of late, with 11 losses in their last 13 games, including eight losses in a row. Bradley is now making $8.8 million in the final year of his contract.

Bradley has seen his numbers on the decline, now shooting on the low 40s and riddled with injuries throughout this campaign with his new team, after being traded by the Boston Celtics for Marcus Morris in the offseason.
