Blake Griffin (toe surgery) said he's met with five foot specialists this summer and they believe that being fully cleared for training camp is a "realistic possibility."
Griffin added that he's hoping to get back on the floor for non-contact work in the next few weeks, so he appears to be trending in a very positive direction following his May 1 surgery. There was a report in late-June speculating that Griffin might not be ready for the start of the season and that he could be out until December, but Ramona Shelburne of ESPN refuted that story, and it seems that the five foot specialists that met with Griffin are in agreement with Ramona's sources.

Blake Griffin plans to reach an agreement on a five-year, $173 million deal with the Clippers, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

And we're off. The Clippers adding that fifth year was likely the last piece of the puzzle, so Griffin now gets his monster payday at age 28. Things will obviously be very different for Griffin because his prime years have been Chris Paul, but now he'll have to learn with off-ball guys. His upside is massive for fantasy, but his toe injury could keep him out to start the season. He's still an early-round target in all formats.

Blake Griffin has canceled meetings with Phoenix and Denver, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

The report adds it sounds like the Clippers are the favorites, assuming a wildcard team doesn't swoop in late. Reading between the lines, it sounds like the Clippers may have finally committed to a fifth year for Griffin. If so, he'll be the franchise's centerpiece and would be in for a bump in stats.

The Thunder plan on "chasing" Blake Griffin in free agency, according to ESPN's Royce Young.

It's nice to have dreams, right? With OKC paying approximately $90M combined to Russell Westbrook, Victor Oladipo, Enes Kanter and Steven Adams, it's hard to see what the Thunder has to offer that could entice the Clippers in a possible sign-and-trade deal. A homecoming story always tugs at the heart strings, but we're not considering this scenario likely to come to fruition, especially when we've heard next to nothing from Griffin's camp about a desire to head home.

The Clippers plan to informally meet with Blake Griffin's agent on Friday.

After losing Chris Paul on Wednesday, Griffin is the team's top priority. The oft-injured, 28-year-old forward could receive a five-year offer from the Clippers, but there's a chance the team may not want to have that fifth year because he'll likely be well past his prime. Griffin is going to meet with the Suns on Saturday and could receive some interest from teams like the Celtics and Thunder.

Blake Griffin is scheduled to meet with Suns on Saturday, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.

The Suns could offer Blake a four-year, $130 million max deal, and the team would get the 28-year-old forward on the back end of his prime. Griffin is also not 100 percent and there's a report he could be out to start the season due to his toe injury from the playoffs. With the Clippers possibly going into a rebuild mode, Griffin may be looking to move from the only team he's played for so far in his career.

According to ESPN's Michael Eaves, Blake Griffin (toe) may not be ready for the start of the season and could be out until December.

He suffered an injury to the plantar plate of his right big toe in Game 3 of the series against Utah and had surgery on May 1, but we haven't heard much about his rehab since then. ESPN's Ramona Shelburne said she has heard otherwise, as her source believes Griffin will be ready in time for the opener. With Chris Paul joining the Rockets, the No. 1 priority for the Clippers is to re-sign Griffin and the franchise is reportedly ready to offer him a five-year max deal.

The Clippers will try to re-sign Blake Griffin as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Los Angeles sending away Chris Paul to Houston may have hurt their chances of retaining Griffin, although they still have money on their side as an incentive as they'll be able to offer him roughly $50 million more than any other team could. The Thunder have long been rumored to have an interest in going after Griffin as a free agent, but they'll need to move around some salary in order to be players in the Griffin sweepstakes.
Jun 28 - 2:31 PM

Blake Griffin has opted out of the last year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

It's a fairly expected move for the former All-Star. Griffin can earn up to a five-year, $175 million deal with the Clippers, or he could get up to a four-year, $130 million offer with another team. There is some uncertainty with the Clippers now that all of their stars have rumors of being on other teams. Considering the Celtics didn't do anything yet, they're someone to watch.
Jun 23 - 5:57 PM

Both the Oklahoma City Thunder and Boston Celtics will make a bid for Blake Griffin, according to the Los Angeles Times.

It's a logical move for both teams. Griffin played his college ball in Oklahoma, and it has long been rumored that OKC would love to pair him with Russell Westbrook. The Celtics finished last season with the best record in the Eastern Conference and have cap space to offer a max contract to an attractive free agent. However, the most likely scenario is Griffin re-signing with the Clippers. L.A. can offer $175 million over five years, while any other team can offer only $130 million over four seasons.
Jun 16 - 10:26 AM

The Celtics will reportedly pursue Blake Griffin and Gordon Hayward during free agency.

"Boston is really the danger for Blake Griffin," said Wojnarowski. "I think Boston's two primary free agent targets, right now, are Gordon Hayward and Blake Griffin. Now they're not going to get both of them, but they're both players that would potentially have interest there. I think Boston looks at in different ways with their future." The Celtics will have the cap space to be able to bring in another max-contract guy during free agency this offseason, so it'll be interesting to see if they're able to pry either Hayward or Griffin away from their respective teams.
Jun 14 - 1:11 PM

The Clippers are "widely regarded as strong favorites" to retain Blake Griffin (toe), according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Spurs are expected to pursue Chris Paul, which may also affect Griffin's decision to stay with the Clippers. The Clips will be able to offer Griffin more money when free agency starts on July 1. Griffin's durability has fallen off with only 35 games played in 2015-16 and 61 games in 2016-17 before a plantar plate injury ended his playoff run.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said that Blake Griffin (toe) is doing well.

"He’s doing well," Rivers said. "The surgery went better than we thought." Griffin had surgery on May 1, but the Clippers still haven't provided a timetable for his return. The Clippers are expected to offer Griffin and Chris Paul max deals this summer, and Griffin could be looking at a deal for five years and $130 million if he wants to remain in Los Angeles. The 28-year-old forward averaged 21.6 points, 8.1 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.6 triples on 49.3 percent shooting in 2016-17, but his durability is a concern -- he's averaging just 54 games played over the past three seasons.

Blake Griffin had successful surgery on Monday to repair his plantar plate injury in his right big toe.

The Clippers should provide another update in the near future, but there's no report of a timetable yet. The Clippers are going to make it a priority to re-sign both Griffin and and Chris Paul this summer to max deals, so the All-Star forward will likely have to turn down a five-year, $130 million offer he wants to leave Los Angeles.
May 1 - 8:53 PM

According to Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times, the Clippers are hoping to re-sign Blake Griffin to a max deal in addition to Chris Paul.

This comes on the heels of a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical that the Clippers are "committed" to re-signing Blake. The Clippers have to like their chances, as they can offer the All-Star forward $175 million over five years, while other teams can only offer around $130 million over four years. He appeared in 61 games in 2016-17, averaging 21.6 points, 8.1 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.6 triples on 49.3 percent shooting. Griffin is currently on the East Coast getting his toe looked at, so we should get an update on his health in the near future.
