Detroit will send one 1st round pick (protected 1-4 in 2018, 2019 and 2020, and unprotected in 2021) and a 2nd rounder to the Clippers.

This doesn't come across as great return for the Clippers IMO.

This almost certainly means that trades for DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams will be soon to follow.

They should ahve cleaned house earlier!

Blake is always hurt and that salary hurts in a few years time so this is a smart play by the Clippers.

Trade Jordan if they can find a taker and then they'll have a heap of cap room to chase LBJ/Lenard and others come free agency.

Many expect Jordon to Opt in to his deal due to most teams being capped out this summer so LA might not be able to move him.

Is this actually a good deal for LAC? Harris is 15+ PPG and Bradley similar (if they can keep him around), and a great defender. Boban is efficient (had 14 and 8 in 14 minutes this week) though difficult to find time for.

DAJ was begged to come back and then CP3 and Blake bail on him. Ouch.

I don't think it was Blake’s choice to bail in his best buddy.
