It’s WojBomb season and the Pistons are involved in one of the most interesting ones so far.
The Clippers and Pistons are engaged in serious talks on a deal centered on All-Star forward Blake Griffin, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 29, 2018
And yep, there’s that blue check mark.
Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer offers a bit more detail.
The deal I heard that's being discussed is Blake Griffin for Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic, and a first-round pick. https://t.co/D9Um2s2fLe— Kevin O'Connor (@KevinOConnorNBA) January 29, 2018
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.
