The Detroit Pistons and former NBA All-Star Blake Griffin are going to part ways in the near future and there’s a slew of teams who could take a chance on the veteran. Griffin is sitting out until the Pistons can either trade him or buy him out of his current contract, which could speed this process up a bit.
Griffin hasn’t been the dominant above the rim thereat he once was, but he is still a very capable player in the league. In the right situation, he could utilize his back-to-the-basket style of play he’s developed while being a capable spot-up and pick-and-pop theat.
In addition, Griffin could bring his experience and work ethic to a needy team who could be looking to bolster their supporting cast for a playoff run. Having that type of presence is important for a team that needs to be able to overcome adversity to achieve a championship run.
So far this season, it has been rough for Blake Griffin. He’s averaging just 12.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.9 assists, which is why he’s found himself in NBA trade rumors.. His efficiency has struggled as he is shooting only 36.5% from the floor and 31.5% from beyond the arc.
Here’s a look at three teams that could be an underrated landing spot for Blake Griffin this season.
