The Clippers are the Clippers again. After speculations about trading a different big man, forward Blake Griffin is on the move to Detroit, along with Brice Johnson and Willie Reed. In return, Los Angeles receives Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic, and a first and second round draft pick.
After the Chris Paul trade, the Clippers have been out of sorts, and a rebuild such as this has been pending. Griffin signed a 5-year extension with the Clippers in July, apparently stating that he wanted his legacy to be as a Clipper. This is sure to make thing awkward when Detroit returns to play in the Staples Center.
