Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin traded to Detroit Pistons, reports ESPN

Clippers forward Blake Griffin

And quite frankly, the Los Angeles Clippers could have gotten much more for their star power forward.

In exchange for Griffin, Brice Johnson, and Willie Reed, the Pistons will send Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic, a first-round pick, and a second-round pick.

Griffin, who spent his entire career with the Clippers, goes to Detroit along with guard Willie Green, forward Brice Johnson and a second round pick, United States television broadcaster ESPN reported.

As for the Clippers, Bradley and Harris will bolster their wing depth. The Clippers are 25-24 on the season and sit ninth in the Western Conference.

However, as of last night, a blockbuster trade was made sending Griffen straight to the Detroit Pistons. LeBron gets to reset with a new star and the Cavs have him locked down for five years if LeBron wants to walk after this season. Injuries have seemed to plague Griffin throughout his career, however. A source close to the Clippers said they also don't expect James to consider them in free agency.

LeBron James is busy trying to save the Cleveland Cavaliers season.

For the Clippers, the move is a timely one.

Harris is on the third year of a 4-year, $64 million contract, and is making $16 million this season.

Bradley, who is known for his strong defence, has posted 15.0 points per game and is the final year of a four-year, $32-million contract. Another option for the Clippers is to tank and hope that they can land one of the big names in the 2018 Draft class, which include Deandre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III, Luka Doncic and Trae Young, among others. The trade has been reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. It becomes unprotected in 2021 if the Clippers have not received the selection. The Pistons (22-26) are now on the fringes of the Eastern Conference playoff picture, and sit three games behind the Philadelphia 76ers for the eighth and final playoff spot.

Griffin has spent his entire career with the Clippers, being selected with the team's No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft.
