I was pretty shocked when I heard the news Black Griffin was in talks to be traded from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Detroit Pistons. After all, the guy is an all-star player. Who in their right mind would want to get rid of their all-star player? L.A. apparently.

Granted, when Chris Paul left for the Houston Rockets things really seemed to go south for the team. Also, Griffin has suffered a few injuries. Could that be the reason they decided to part ways, or are there other issues at hand?

For now, the deal would be to trade Blake Griffin for Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, a first-round and a second-round draft pick, said ESPN.
