Reports: Pistons Trade For Blake Griffin
The Detroit Pistons reportedly have agreed to trade Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley and Boban Marjanovic to the LA Clippers for Blake Griffin, Brice Johnson and Willie Reed.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Detroit also agreed to send a first and second round draft pick to LA in return for the five time All-star forward.
According to Wojnarowski's sources, the Pistons' first round pick will include protections for picks 1-4 in the upcoming three drafts, with an unprotected pick in 2021.
The ninth-ranked Eastern Conference Pistons and ninth-ranked Western Conference Clippers appear to be headed in different directions.
The Pistons, who only have one postseason appearance since 2010, had a promising start to the season before falling into some costly losing streaks.
The Clippers have made the postseason each of the last five seasons.
Detroit has lost nine games in a row. LA has won its last two.
Though injury-prone, Griffin could be an offensive boost to a stagnate 24th ranked scoring offense. Currently, he averages 22.6 points per game and 7.9 rebounds per game.
