The Los Angeles Clippers traded Blake Griffin for first & second round picks, Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris, and Boban Marjanovic from the Pistons. The Pistons made this trade because they are trying to increase their chances of making it back to the playoffs. They think that having Blake Griffin will help them make an appearance this year. Detroit gave up most of their talent for just one player and while they are confident, NBA analysts have said that the Pistons are not going to benefit from this trade. Griffin is a five time All-Star and has good stats but needs other players around him to help. He is one player, not the team. Avery Bradley is a good three point shooter and the Clippers will benefit with his addition to the team. Griffin said that he is happy to come to Detroit and will play just as hard as he did while he was in LA.
