Pistons making Avery Bradley available

Avery Bradley on trade talks: The Pistons should serve best interests

Rumor: Pistons, Bulls could make a run for Rodney Hood

Multiple players involved have been informed of trade. NBA.com's John Schuhmann points out the Pistons are 3-17 in games in which Bradley has played since December 2 (AEDT).

The Los Angeles Clippers and Detroit Pistons have agreed to a trade, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Talks could include both of these players, as the Motor City is looking to shed his existing salary and avoid paying the $20-million annual salary he'll likely cost by the time he becomes a free agent this summer.

Bradley was acquired by Detroit last offseason when the team traded Marcus Morris to the Boston Celtics. At 22-26, Detroit has slipped to ninth in the East, three games back of the Sixers, and it's clear the team is in in need of a shake up in order to make a late push for a playoff spot.

Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer reported the Pistons have interest in Utah Jazz guard Rodney Hood and Chicago Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic.

Bradley might be a long shot, but the same was said about Paul George and Carmelo Anthony. Accompanying Bradley in the trade was a second-round draft pick in 2019.

With news already out there that the Pistons were shopping guard Avery Bradley, it seemed logical to assume he would be included in any Griffin deal.

Losers of eight in a row, more than just this Detroit Pistons' season is at a crossroads.

Griffin, 28, is in the first year of a five-year, 173 million dollar contract.

Could a blockbuster National Basketball Association trade be brewing between two teams in need of a shakeup? But if they really want to get rid of him, that asking price may have to come down significantly over the next 10 days heading into the February 8 trade deadline.
