DETROIT (WXYZ) — Blake Griffin's time in Detroit appears to be headed toward an end.

In a report by ESPN's senior NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski, Griffin will continue to sit out of games as he and his representatives look to find a way to trade the All-Star forward to a contending team, or buy out the remainder of his contract.

"After extensive conversation with Blake's representatives, it has been determined that we will begin working to facilitate a resolution regarding his future with the team that maximizes the interests of both parties," Weaver told ESPN on Monday. "We respect all the effort Blake has put forth in Detroit and his career and will work to achieve a positive outcome for all involved."

In a statement, Griffin told ESPN: "I am grateful to the Pistons for understanding what I want to accomplish in my career and for working together on the best path forward."
