The Los Angeles Clippers have traded five-time All-Star Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons.
The Clippers are also sending center Willie Reed and power forward Brice Johnson to the Pistons, who will send forward Tobias Harris, guard Avery Bradley, center Boban Marjanović and draft picks to Los Angeles.
Griffin averaged 22.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 33 games this season. Last June, he signed a maximum five-year, $173 million contract. Harris and Bradley are established high-level rotation players, and Marjanović has shown promise as a reserve big man. Harris has averaged 18.1 points and 5.1 rebounds this season. Bradley, a free agent at season’s end, has averaged 15 points and 2.4 rebounds this season.
Pistons center Andre Drummond welcomed Griffin on Instagram, with a photo of the two playing the game and the caption: “No longer a foe, now a true friend of the crown. Welcome to Detroit.”
Does this mean we’ll be seeing LOTS of Kendall Jenner soon? (The two are dating, if you haven't heard.)
Here’s what we are hearing, in regards to that: Kendall is (allegedly) happy about this trade. There are some whispers that she wants to move on anyway, so Blake’s move to Detroit will help that happen, instead of dragging on a long-distance relationship.
One source says, “She knew she was going to have to break up with him eventually, but this makes it easier, as she can just let the relationship fizzle out."
