Detroit and L.A. are reportedly considering a blockbuster trade.

We're 10 days away from the NBA Trade Deadline. The market appears to be heating up.

This morning, ESPN reported that Detroit Pistons guard Avery Bradley was available. The star defender is on an expiring contract and Detroit is reportedly looking to move him.

Now, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting another star player is available. The Clippers are reportedly shopping Blake Griffin.

Wojnarowski reports that Los Angeles and Detroit are discussing a trade centered on the All-Star forward. Talks are reportedly "serious." Wojnarowski reports that the two teams have been talking about the deal for a couple of days.

Griffin, 28, is a five-time All-Star. He signed a five-year, $173 million contract with the Clippers this past summer.

It's unclear what Los Angeles would be looking for in return. The Pistons have some moveable contracts in Bradley and a young player with potential in Stanley Johnson.

The Clippers are 25-24 on the season. Two of the team's other top players, DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams, have also been mentioned as possible trade prospects. Griffin, though, would undoubtedly net the biggest return.

Stay tuned.

Update: This is reportedly the trade that is being discussed, according to The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor. It's a decent haul for the Clippers.
