I didn't compare the two .. But with 2 bigs your offense is going to be a lot different then it has been . Are we going to run a point foward offense through Blake or continue to run the offense a lot through Drummond ?
It is a valid question because when we had 2 bigs it was a totally different offense being run then it is now and yes I know Blake is a lot better player then Monroe. This is why it feels like a bad trade and svg is reaching .. He is completely going to have to change his offense.

Aside from the fact that Monroe and Griffin are 'bigs' they are nothing alike. That's why you can't compare the situations. Drummond and Monroe worked poorly, this is known. But Monroe can't create shots for himself, or others, like Griffin can. Griffin's health is the ONLY thing that makes this trade shaky. When it comes to individual talent, I'd say Griffin is the best player the Pistons have had since Grant Hill.

Well I'm not going to blow my brains out over the deal I just think we gave up to much in the deal. But only time will tell Maybe it will work out for Detroit .

The Pistons had to do something.. Staying status quo was doomed for failure. Now that Grant Hill made an appearance .. I was super bummed about that trade but it turned this franchise around.

We gave up a guy who was gone after this year anyway in Bradley, a back up center that didn't play much and got a different younger higher upside back up in Reed, I don't like moving Harris but I feel he was to inconsistent and I would have NEVER gave him a max contract that he would command after next season. The pick is hard to swallow but we keep whiffing on our picks as noted before anyways and like others have said you can consider Johnson the draft pick and more so because he actually has some NBA experience now, always liked him at NC. We control one of the better players for 3 years after this and I like the potential there with him and Drummond now if he can stay healthy they should be great together.

I'm OK with the trade. SVG can't draft anyway so the picks are useless. The league is built on stars. I do worry about his health and don't like his contract given his age.

Not sure how excited Griffin is going to be. A few months after he signs his extension he gets moved from LA to Detroit.

From the ESPN article

"A free agent in the 2017 offseason, Griffin met with Ballmer, coach Doc Rivers, West and several players at Staples Center in a celebration of his career. At the end of the two-hour fete, Griffin rose and spoke, telling teammates, his coach and the owner, "I want my legacy to be a Clipper."
