Rumor: Pistons to Package Young Player in Blake Griffin Trade

Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin hasn't dunked during a basketball game since 2019 and if he's eventually going to throw one down again, it could be in a different jersey.

The trade rumors are starting to get cranked up as the Pistons are trying to get creative to get Griffin's hefty contract off their books. Reports have surfaced the Pistons are open to moving another young piece or a draft pick along with Griffin to have another team agree to a deal.

The 31-year-old Griffin has appeared in 20 games this season and is averaging 12.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists. While Griffin is currently making $36.5 million this season, next season he holds a $38.9 million player-option that for sure he's not going to be walking away from.

Meanwhile the 7-19 Pistons are trying to build their future around Jerami Grant
