Blake Griffin has decided to take his talents to Brooklyn. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Griffin has cleared waivers, which is expected to set up a move to the Brooklyn Nets. Interested teams have been left with the impression that Griffin has decided to pursue an NBA title in Brooklyn, where he can join up with Kyrie Irving, James Harden, and Kevin Durant.
Griffin isn’t the same high flyer he was in Los Angeles, but he is still a very serviceable big man that the Nets could use. Griffin was averaging 12.2 points on 36.5 percent shooting from the field and 31.5 percent from behind the arc with the Detroit Pistons.
The Nets currently holds the second-best record in the East at 24-13. The team has won nine of its last 10 games and must decide whether to start Griffin or bring him off the bench to give the second unit another playmaker on the court.
