Pistons in serious talks for Clippers forward Blake Griffin

Bradley was held out of Sunday's loss to Cleveland with a sore right groin, but he's listed on Tuesday's report with a sore hamstring. According to Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, the deal would include shooting guard Avery Bradley, leading scorer Tobias Harris, backup center Boban Marjanovic, and a first-round pick for Griffin.

Now, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting another star player is available. He will be an unrestricted free agent this upcoming offseason.

The LA Clippers are engaged in serious talks on a deal that would send All-Star forward Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons, league sources tell ESPN.

While the Pistons are reportedly willing to part with Avery Bradley, young players like LA-native Stanley Johnson, Luke Kennard and Henry Ellenson could be added to any deal to sweeten things for the Clippers. He now averages 15 points, 2.1 assists, and 2.4 rebounds per game.

The 27-year-old is known as one of the league's best perimeter defenders, shining for the Boston Celtics in their last two seasons as one of the better two-way guards in the league. He started out well, like the team, but has struggled with his shot lately (30-of-84, 35.7 percent; including 6-of-26 from 3-point range, 23.1 percent). It's undoubtedly going to cost more than that to keep him.

This seems like it could just be the Lakers reaching out and letting Detroit know they are interested and it is always safe to be cautious of rumors around this time of the season.

Q: Who won the (Marcus) Morris for Bradley trade?

They could have up to $32 million in cap space if they were to rid themselves of non-guaranteed contracts, but could also be at $23 million if those contracts - like Alan Williams and Tyler Ulis - were to stay. Bradley makes $8.8 million in the final season of his contract.
