Within moments on Jan. 29, the Los Angeles Clippers seemingly went from a (fringe) playoff contender to a team with a very different direction. Word broke that the team was in advanced discussions to trade Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons and, in the blink of an eye, the deal was done in sending the All-Star forward, along with Brice Johnson and Willie Reed, to the Eastern Conference in exchange for Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic and draft assets.

Many assumed immediately that the trade was the start of a rebuilding focus for the Clippers and, moments later, that was seemingly confirmed with the revelation that Los Angeles is seeking youth and draft picks in exchange for its top two remaining players.
