DETROIT– The Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons are set to conclude their home-and-home series with the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night.
On Monday evening, however, the Pistons acquired superstar Blake Griffin from the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, a protected first-round pick and a 2019 second-round pick. The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Griffin is averaging 22.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists through 33 games this season. Along with Andre Drummond, the move will give the Pistons one of the most formidable frontcourts in the East.
The Cavs have found themselves in various trade rumors involving the Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams in recent weeks. According to Wojnarowski, L.A. is still entertaining offers for those two players.
Griffin will need to undergo a physical, so he likely won’t play tomorrow against the Cavs. But stranger things have happened.
