The Clippers and Pistons have agreed on a deal to trade Blake Griffin for Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, a first-round and a second-round draft pick, league sources tell ESPN.

Looks to be official now.

And a freaking pick? Wtf is svg thinking . Terrible deal . 3 guys and a #1 for injury prone a Griffin. Svg has lost his mind.


Oh and a # 2 pick. I guess it doesn't matter it's not like svg evaluates talent right and then keep them .. 5 guys for 1 player ..

First reaction I think Clippers won this trade. Griffin hasn’t played 70 games or more in 3 seasons (about to be 4 this year). Plus they dumped a sizable contract for a soft ass player. Assuming the first round pick is for 2018 it will be a lottery one most likely albeit a late lottery one.

"Protections on Detroit's 2018 first-round pick include 1-4 in 2018, 2019 and 2020, and unprotected in 2021, per sources".

Also got Willie Reed and Brice Johnson in the deal . Willie Reed can def play , and Brice was a high draft pic with potential . Not terribly thrilled but had to do something to shake it up !!

Because you lose value when you wait.

Closer to deadline doesn't guarantee a better deal..

Losing Tobias is the biggest for me , we were gonna lose Bradley at end of the year for nothing anyway . As much as i love Boban , SVG just wouldnt play him enough and the draft pick hurts but ya never know how a draft pick will work out . Brice Johnson could be considering our draft pick , this guy is only 23 and was awesome for North Carolina .

Willie Reed is a ball of energy , remember watching him last year for Miami when Whiteside went down for an extended amount of time , dude was balling out . I mean Blake Griffin is a borderline superstar who is controlled for 4 more years after this year , ya gotta give up some good stuff .
