Detroit Pistons Troy Weaver’s new general manager sees Derrick Rose and Blake Griffin as part of the team’s future.
The pistons are about to be rebuilt, but Weaver believes the two veteran stars can be “the two staples” of their reconstruction project.
Per Eric Woodyard from ESPN::
“We are happy to make them well and help them move forward,” said Weaver of the two seasoned All-Stars. “We feel like we have a good mix of young people with these two staples to start with, but obviously we have a lot of work to do with the design and the free agency.”
Blake Griffin participated in 18 games this season before missing out on the left knee for the rest of the 2019-2020 season. Griffin will mature at $ 36.6 million in 2020-21 and has a player option for the 2021-22 season that will earn him a $ 38.9 million profit when exercised.
On the other hand, Rose continued its resurgence this season with an average of 18.1 points and 5.6 assists in 26 minutes per competition in the 50 games he played with Detroit this season.
