The Los Angeles Clippers exchanging Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons was a shocker in itself, however the exchange return influenced the blockbuster to bargain considerably even more a head-scratcher. The Clippers got some decent pieces in the exchange, including Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley and Detroit’s 2018 first-round draft pick.
In any case, for a player of Griffin’s bore, numerous trusted Los Angeles could have gotten more. While this may be the situation, it doesn’t have all the earmarks of being because of an absence of attempting from the Clippers, as detailed by ESPN’s Royce Young.
Talking on The Hoop Collective podcast, Young clarified that Los Angeles attempted to swing a creature exchange with the Oklahoma City Thunder. “That is to say, I know they made calls to Oklahoma City for Paul George,” Young said on The Hoop Collective podcast. “I’m almost certain they made calls to Minnesota for players, so I mean, similar to, they attempted to get some greater name players. It simply wasn’t going on.”
This reputed Clippers-Thunder exchange is an intriguing one, without a doubt. It doesn’t appear as if Oklahoma City has made George accessible for exchange, however the star forward’s lapsing contract would persuade it would in any event engage the thought.
Also, Griffin is an Oklahoma local and played collegiately with the Sooners. Be that as it may, with the Thunder at long last beginning to discover a section with their enormous three of George, Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony, it bodes well why OKC would need to stand pat.
