Throughout recent weeks, Six-time NBA All-Star forward Blake Griffin expected arriving in new team. Subsequent to putting two or three seasons with the Detroit Pistons, it was clear Griffin not, at this point had a future there – and the Pistons accepted that and got ready to move onward.
Along these lines, throughout the previous few weeks, the Pistons benched Griffin uncertainly while looking for trade offers. Considering Griffin is aging, prone to injury, and had a expensive contract attached, his trade market was dry.
Despite the fact that Detroit held out trust for some time, it became obvious that the Pistons’ association would at last need to take care of business and purchase out Griffin. Before the end of last week, they at long last did. Also, true to form, Griffin quickly had a market.
The Philadelphia 76ers were recently linked to Griffin before he got bought out as they could utilize a backup power forward for Tobias Harris. In any case, a few factors made it difficult to accept they were genuine admirers for the former Pistons forward.
In the wake of garnering consideration from a modest bunch of teams, Griffin apparently handled his next association on Sunday night as he arrived at a one-year deal the Brooklyn Nets. On Monday, the Nets made the signing official.
Brooklyn adding more star power doesn’t come as a very remarkable surprise. In spite of the fact that they had Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant to begin the year, the Nets looked for a third star and in the end landed James Harden. The beginning arrangement seems as though it’s worked for a title run, however the seat profundity in the frontcourt could utilize some work.
That’s where Griffin comes into play. Presently, he probably won’t be a similar player he was from a couple of years back as wounds have gotten up to speed to him, yet another circumstance could move Griffin to play far superior to he was this season with the Pistons.
With or without Griffin, the Nets stay probably the greatest danger to the Sixers in the Eastern Conference. While the addition of the veteran forward doesn’t put Brooklyn over the top, it positively doesn’t take care of the Sixers. In any case, Brooklyn is a danger to the Sixers – and Philly will hope to support its own seat in the coming weeks.
