It is a valid concern, for sure. I just question how high the ceiling is with this team, even with Bogey back, and the possibility that it will be lower once Conley is gone.
The other problem is that realistically Detroit would rather have the 7th pick and Griffin than Harris, since either way they have to rebuild (and they already traded Harris). I'd rather cut Detroit out and get the better player (I think Harris was better two years ago than Griffin was, at the very least the difference was not night and day, because the Clippers still made the playoffs with Harris instead of Blake).
