Griffin, 31, is much better off on a title contender than a lottery team at this stage of his career. The Pistons have the second-worst record in the league.
While the Heat competed in the NBA Finals last season, they have tumbled out of the playoff picture this season. The Heat hold an 11-16 record and are the No. 10 seed in the Eastern Conference.
As for Griffin, he’s not playing at his prime potential anymore. The veteran is putting up a career-low 12.3 points along with 5.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game this season.
Nonetheless, the Heat could turn around the former All-Star’s career. He could also help fuel the Heat as they push toward the playoffs.
Griffin, who is in the midst of a five-year, $171 million contract, is signed through the end of 2021-22 season. The Pistons may have to include a young player or draft compensation in order to move Griffin’s gargantuan deal.
