Lakers Offered Jordan Clarkson For Avery Bradley

The Los Angeles Lakers discussed a trade involving Avery Bradley with the Detroit Pistons, the Detroit Free Press' Vince Ellis reported Monday.

This comes way out of left field, with Griffin not having been a name floated in trade rumors yet this year.

Detroit's asking price for Bradley is "significant", per Wojnarowski, who added the Pistons have been one of the league's most "aggressive" teams leading up to the deadline.

This season, Bradley is averaging 15.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game for the Pistons.

Bradley is now playing out the final season of a four-year contract that he signed with the Celtics, in which he has been paid an average salary of $8 million per season.

AFter losing eight straight games, the Detroit Pistons have quickly shifted from potential buyers at the National Basketball Association trade deadline to probable sellers.

Q: Who won the (Marcus) Morris for Bradley trade?

It's been a season full of ups and downs for the Detroit Pistons, but their current eight-game slide has made the front office start to consider the future. Even with his decline this season, Wojnarowski suggested Bradley could command $20 million a year in free agency.

The Pistons moved to acquired Bradley as a replacement (and upgrade) for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, but Bradley is only signed through this season.

Bradley still remains one of the league's best perimeter defenders and is a career 37 percent shooter from the three-point line.
