Lakers Offered Jordan Clarkson For Avery Bradley

Lakers Offered Jordan Clarkson For Avery Bradley

The Los Angeles Clippers are engaged in serious talks on a deal that would send All-Star forward Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons, league sources tell ESPN.

Early Monday morning it was reported that Pistons guard Avery Bradley was put on the trade block.

Griffin is averaging 22.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 34.5 minutes per game this season.

It will be interesting to see how things play out around the deadline. Contending teams would likely enjoy the addition of Bradley, but it all just depends on how "significant" that asking price is from Detroit.

The biggest contract on the team is slated to be Brandon Knight, who will make $14.6 million next season and $15.6 million the year after. 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.




The Pistons have struggled of late, losing eight-straight and dropping to ninth in the East. Bradley missed Sunday's game against the Cavs with a hamstring injury.

Bradley is making $8.8 million in the final year of his contract, so he could draw interest as a rental player before hitting unrestricted free agency in July.

According to Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, the Lakers have offered Clarkson for Pistons guard Avery Bradley. He still is a contributor but has regressed a bit this season, his first with Detroit, after seven seasons with the Boston Celtics.

The 27-year-old is known as one of the league's best perimeter defenders, shining for the Boston Celtics in their last two seasons as one of the better two-way guards in the league.
