Amping up that rumor were cryptic tweets by Griffin and Hawks guard, Trae Young.

That trade would allegedly receive a couple of expiring contracts and the No. 10 and No. 12 pick for Blake and the No. 15 pick.
Trae wouldn’t be coming here but could Blake be going there??? Pistons admit after losing by a combined 95 points to the Bucks that they need to blow it up? Pistons get 10, 12 and Plumlee, Bazemore (both expiring) and Hawks get Blake and 15. Make it happen!!!

Like we said, this is just a rumor at this time but it could be something to keep a close eye on as the NBA Draft approaches.
