The Detroit Pistons have made a huge splash less than two weeks away from the trade deadline.

The Pistons agreed to a trade Monday that will send Los Angeles Clippers superstar forward Blake Griffin to Detroit in exchange for Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic and a first- and second-round draft pick, two sources with firsthand knowledge of the situation told the Free Press.

The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced by either team. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski was first to report the news.

The Free Press reported Monday that the Pistons have been assessing the value of guard Bradley, who’s in the final year of a four-year, $32-million deal.

Griffin, an All-Star each of his first five seasons in the NBA, is averaging 22.6 points and 7.9 rebounds this season.
