2018 NBA trade deadline: Pistons trade for Blake Griffin

New, comments

Detroit sends out Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, and draft picks.

NBA: Phoenix Suns at Los Angeles Clippers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

It’s WojBomb season and the Pistons are involved in one of the most interesting ones so far.

And yep, there’s that blue check mark.

Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer offers a bit more detail.

Very interesting.

Griffin’s athleticism and versatility would be interesting for the Pistons, but it’s hard to say if he’s enough of an upgrade over Tobias Harris to move the needle that much. Plus he just signed a massive contract over the summer that will pay him as much as $39 million in 2021-22. Griffin’s 29th birthday is right around the corner and for an injury prone player, there’s a lot of risk there.

We’ll keep you posted if anything develops.

Update: Well that was fast! Blake Griffin is a Piston.

We’ll have more analysis for you in the coming days.
