Wow, Clippers traded Blake to Detroit!!!

The LA Clippers have agreed to trade All-Star forward Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons, league sources tell ESPN.

The Clippers will receive Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, and a first-round and second-round draft pick, league sources say. The Clippers are also sending Brice Johnson and Willie Reed to Detroit alongside Griffin, sources say.

I hope they unleash Marjanovic. Huge upside, would like to see what he can do with consistent playing time in even the 25 minute range.

I could see Detroit going after Lebron next year.

Griffin/Lebron/Drummond

Van Gundy is 10x better coach than Lou.

Lebron can bring Wade with him too. All they would need is a decent PG and some shooters. Dangelo Russell would be a perfect fit(young, cheap, can score, still getting better).

Damn, you might be onto something with this 1. Detroit is likely getting in the finals with Lebron + 3-shooters next season. The only way it would work is if the Cavs agree to a sign and trade for injury-prone max-contract Reggie Jackson this summer. Cavs would unload Korver to the Pistons also. Doubtful but not impossible.

It is not coincidence this is being rumored out by Lebrons group now, Lebron is trying to make a point that the NBA should have intervened in the KD GS signing to avoid the 4-core superteam, it's like he's saying fine, if you don't do something about this I'll make you do something about it, or at least force the uncomfortable but necessary conversation.

GS would have to give up Klay and Iggy to make this happen and they won't.

It might actually result in a rule prohibiting teams with 3 near-max contracts from offering a 4th contract over a certain amount or % of cap.

They just need to sign Rose to the minimum and they'll have all 4 MVPs who won 8 MVPs in the past 9 years (minus Westbrook). Maybe convince Dirk not to retire and sign for one more year for the minimum, just so they can actually have 5 MVPs on the court at the same time!
