Pistons engaged in serious talks to acquire Blake Griffin

Rodney Hood Appears To Be In Detroit Pistons' Crosshairs Pistons engaged in serious talks to acquire Blake Griffin

Bradley was acquired by the Pistons last summer in a trade that sent forward Marcus Morris to the Boston Celtics, where Bradley spent his first seven National Basketball Association seasons. He averaged 16.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game, while shooting over 46 percent from the floor and 39 percent from beyond the arc over 55 games. That future may or may not include shooting guard Avery Bradley, who is scheduled to be a free agent at the conclusion of this season.

The NBA's mid-season trade deadline of February 8th is fast approaching and the Pistons look eager to get some value back in exchange for Bradley's expiring contract.

As an on-ball defender, though, he's still almost as good as it gets when it comes to covering guards.

Bradley is making $8.8 million in the final year of his contract, so he could draw interest as a rental player before hitting unrestricted free agency in July.

In the report, ESPN estimates that Bradley could command a contract on the open market that pays him $20 million per season, although his play this year might not exactly warrant such a deal.

Bradley has seen his numbers on the decline, now shooting on the low 40s and riddled with injuries throughout this campaign with his new team, after being traded by the Boston Celtics for Marcus Morris in the offseason.

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