Does trading Avery Bradley make sense for Pistons?

On Monday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the team is making Bradley "available in trade talks". In return, the Clippers will reportedly receive Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley and a first-round pick.

However, the Clippers have since dropped to No. 9 in the conference with a 25-24 record, which caused them reconsidering their stance with the trade deadline looming on February 8.

Griffin, 28, has struggled with injuries over the past several seasons, missing 84 games since the start of the 2014-15 campaign.

The Pistons are now in 9th place in the East, having lost their last eight games.

Even though Bradley will become a free agent this offseason, the Pistons have had a significant asking price for him.

The downpour has forced evacuations from homes elsewhere on the Seine after it and other French rivers burst their banks. It was expected to keep rising, reaching a peak above six metres (20 feet) over the weekend.

Prior to being traded to Detroit, Bradley spent seven seasons in Boston after the franchise drafted him 19th overall in the 2010 Draft.

Blake Griffin's time with the Clippers has come to an end, according to multiple reports. Griffin played the first 19 games of the season before catching the injury bug once again and missing the next month with an MCL injury. He's scoring 15.0 points a night and hauling in 2.4 rebounds while shooting 40.9 percent from the floor - all of those have fallen compared to last season.

Avery, who only has been traded once in his career to this point - from Boston to Detroit before this season - is taking the situation in stride.

The trade is a mid-season reset for both teams.

He would also be able to space the floor, as he's shot above 35 percent from 3-point range for the past four seasons, now at 38.1 percent in Detroit. He's appeared in 31 games, fresh off of a brand new five-year, $173 million contract.
