A season and a half after their blockbuster trade for Blake Griffin, it’s fair to say the Griffin/Drummond experiment has been an utter failure.
At 14-25, the Pistons are facing yet another subpar season ahead of them and this time, it could be their last. According to Vincent Ellis of USA Today, the Pistons have reached their breaking point, making pretty much every player available in trade talks.
The Pistons are willing to discuss trade options for any player on their roster, per @Vincent_Ellis56.

Already, a number of names have emerged. Griffin, Drummond, and Rose have been the subject of many rumors in recent weeks.
For Drummond, the Hawks and Knicks are leading the charge, and they have the young assets to provide Detroit with the necessary rebuilding pieces.
Unfortunately for Griffin, his struggles and expensive contract have made him a bit of an enigma for the league. Unless he can resurrect his dying career, it is unlikely he will find his way out of Detroit.
Either way, expect the Pistons to be among the biggest sellers this free agency. They have game-changing assets on their roster that can go a long way in vaulting their rebuild.
