The NBA world was stunned on Monday night when Adrian Wojnarowski of www.espn.com reported that superstar power forward Blake Griffin was being traded from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Detroit Pistons. Willie Reed and Brice Johnson are also headed to Detroit in the trade, while Los Angeles receives Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, a first round draft pick, and a second round draft pick. Griffin is a 5-time All-Star, but has repeatedly suffered injuries, including a concussion and sprained MCL this season alone. Therefore, this is a risky trade for the Pistons, as they’re losing two great players in Harris and Bradley. It could work out great for Detroit if Griffin stops getting injured. According to Wojnarowski, the Clippers have also put DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams on the trade block, so this may not be the last trade that the Clippers execute before the trade deadline on February 8th. Avery Bradley will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and Harris will be an unrestricted free agent next summer. Griffin has four years left on his 5 year, $171 million contract after this season.

 

The Pistons reportedly made an offer for Hornets point guard Kemba Walker before the Griffin trade that would’ve sent Harris to Charlotte for Walker. That trade didn’t fall through, but Walker could still be traded. For Avery Bradley, this is his third team to be on in the past year. As the rest of the trading before the trade deadline happens, it will be interesting to see what happens. Will DeAndre Jordan be traded? What about Kemba Walker? Isaiah Thomas? The whole NBA fan base will have to wait and see what other blockbuster trades occur before February 8th.
