In a shocker, Blake Griffin was traded to the Pistons on Monday.
Griffin, who signed a five-year, $173 million deal last summer with the Clippers, was traded to the Pistons along with Willie Reed and Brice Johnson for Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, and a first and second-round draft pick.
Here is how Twitter reacted:
Attention NBA agents: Anytime a team pitches your guy with rhetoric about retiring with said team, make them back it up by giving your player a no-trade clause in his contract. https://t.co/BA7vdDqnht
