The Pistons have been mediocre for a while, stuck between contending and rebuilding. For that reason, almost anything seemed possible as Thursday’s trade deadline approached. Last year, Griffin came to Detroit in the middle of the season, but that wasn’t enough to put the Pistons in the playoffs, and the franchise eventually parted with Stan Van Gundy, its coach and team president.

This season hasn’t been much different under new coach Dwane Casey. Detroit is 24-29, 1 ½ games behind the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Griffin and Andre Drummond are both productive, but that hasn’t translated to much team success.
