Pistons engaged in serious talks to acquire Blake Griffin

He's certain a core player of this Pistons squad but his availability draws into question his long-term standing in Detroit after being added in a trade with the Boston Celtics in the offseason.

The serious trade talk, gives analysis of potential deals, such as ESPN's deep dive Monday into five trades that the Cleveland Cavaliers should make to help LeBron James.

Bradley, 27, has been bothered by a groin injury this season, which caused him to miss seven straight games earlier in the season.

Wojnarowski describes the Pistons' asking price for Bradley as "significant" suggesting they won't be in total sell mode at the February 8 trade deadline.

They could have up to $32 million in cap space if they were to rid themselves of non-guaranteed contracts, but could also be at $23 million if those contracts - like Alan Williams and Tyler Ulis - were to stay. But I don't think this deal was about Bradley vs. Morris, it was Bradley vs. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope or Bradley's replacement vs. Caldwell-Pope. Johnson is under contract for one more season and will be a restricted free agent in 2019.

Bradley had the best season of his career with the Boston Celtics in 2016-17.

He'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer and while he's making just $8.8 million this year, he's likely to command an annual salary around $20 million this summer according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The day started with rumors that the Pistons were looking to trade guard Avery Bradley. His playoff experience could provide a huge boost. If Bradley misses another game, expect Reggie Bullock and Luke Kennard to pick up increased minutes.

Either way, no matter what the Pistons would be dealing, this is huge news.
