Detroit Pistons make decision on Blake Griffin


It is official, the Detroit Pistons have bought out Blake Griffin.


From the sounds of things, the Detroit Pistons are not having any luck finding a trade partner for Blake Griffin and it is just a matter of time before they buy him out.

According to a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Pistons are expected to work out a buyout with Griffin.

“Sources tell me and The Athletic’s James Edwards III that the Pistons are expected to work toward a contract buyout with forward Blake Griffin.”

This comes as no surprise as Griffin’s salary this season is $36.8 million and the chances of the Pistons finding a team willing to take on that amount of money has always been unlikely.

Looking back, it sure seems like anyone who thought acquiring Blake Griffin from the get-go was a mistake ended up being correct.
