Pistons rumors: Lakers offered Jordan Clarkson for Avery Bradley

Posted January 30, 2018

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Detroit is in serious discussions with the Los Angeles Clippers about acquiring All-Star forward Blake Griffin.

This season, Bradley is averaging 15.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game for the Pistons.

The NBA's mid-season trade deadline of February 8th is fast approaching and the Pistons look eager to get some value back in exchange for Bradley's expiring contract.

So far, Detroit's asking price for Bradley is significant, league sources said.

Which players should the Cavs target before the trade deadline?

This seems like it could just be the Lakers reaching out and letting Detroit know they are interested and it is always safe to be cautious of rumors around this time of the season. He is a tough defender, like Johnson, and has a reasonable contract: $6.8 million this year, $7.3 million next season and $7.8 million in 2019-20. Detroit has lost eight straight games and 12 of its past 15 since point guard was lost with an ankle injury. Now, the Pistons are searching for a return on Bradley prior to the possibility of losing him without compensation in free agency, league sources said.

The Pistons moved to acquired Bradley as a replacement (and upgrade) for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, but Bradley is only signed through this season.

Bradley has struggled this season, both with injuries and his play.

The seven-year veteran has failed to score in double digits in his last three games, missing the most-recent tilt against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday due to lingering groin problems.
