The Detroit Pistons and power forward Blake Griffin have agreed to a contract buyout.
Griffin was having his worst career season in 2020-21 averaging a career-low in scoring with 12.3 points per game, a poor 5.2 rebounds a game, and was shooting a low 36.5% from the field.
Although he’s off to a shaky start, Griffin is receiving interest from multiple contenders including the Lakers, Clippers, Heat, and Warriors.
According to the Athletic, the Brooklyn Nets are the favorite to land the big man.
Wherever he ends up, the 31-year-old won’t likely see a huge role in any offense, but he could provide a nice spark off the bench.
Griffin was previously owed a salary of $36,595,996 for 2021 before the buyout agreement.
