Clippers trade Griffin to Pistons

Report Los Angeles Clippers trade Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons

Griffin, a 5-time All-Star, was a free agent in the off-season and spoke with multiple teams - including the Phoenix Suns - before ultimately resigning with the Clippers for five years and $173 million. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was first to report the news. He is averaging 22.6 points 7.9 rebounds and a career-high 5.3 assists per game this season.

Griffin is a 6-foot-10 power forward who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 draft.

As for the Clippers, Bradley and Harris will bolster their wing depth. He was traded to the Pistons from the Orlando Magic in 2016 before the trade deadline, and spent the last two seasons in Detroit.


Griffin, 28, has struggled with injuries over the past several seasons, missing 84 games since the start of the 2014-15 campaign. That is an exactly same position where the LA Clippers sit in the Western Conference. Kevin Love has been taking all the blame in Cleveland, his partnership with LeBron James has never been great; his defense leaves a lot to be wanted. Now, with quite a few years left on his deal, he's moving to a city that has a huge PR problem, not to mention is cold a lot of time, especially compared to the Southern California coast.

Now more moves that will displease Rivers are sure to come, with DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams likely the next two major pieces to be dealt. Detroit is now on an eight-game losing streak and sit ninth in the Eastern Conference with a record of 22-26. The trade also frees up cap space for the Clippers for them to acquire players in the offseason during this rebuilding stage. He is averaging 15.0 points per game and is in the a year ago of his deal that pays him $8.8 million. The Celtics have both young players and picks, but they might not want to get involved for either player.

The first pick of the 2009 draft has averaged 21.6 points and 9.3 rebounds per game in an National Basketball Association career riddled with injuries.
