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.

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.

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.

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.

The Clippers are committed to signing Blake Griffin to a long-term contract this summer, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Despite a rash of injuries in recent years that have derailed him in the postseason, Griffin is still just 28 years old and supremely skilled. The current core of Griffin, Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan has yet to get over the hump; however, losing a player as talented as Griffin in his prime and having nothing to show for it would be devastating to the franchise. The safest course of action may be re-signing Blake and then trading him down the line if the results remain unsatisfactory.

Blake Griffin will miss the remainder of the 2017 NBA Playoffs with an injury to the plantar plate of his right big toe.

The Clippers simply can't catch a break, as this is yet another postseason in which they have to deal with a debilitating injury to one of their star players. Griffin injured the toe late in the first half on Friday. Marreese Speights started the second half in place of Blake and will continue to see an uptick in minutes going forward, but Speights may still come off the bench if Austin Rivers (hamstring) is healthy enough to return. Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan will be asked to shoulder the offensive load going forward. CP3's usage rate will spike, just as it did in the second half of Game 3.

Blake Griffin (bruised right big toe) underwent an MRI and his status for Game 4 on Sunday is unknown.

Griffin injured his toe after making a layup over Rodney Hood with just under four minutes left in the second quarter. He limped back on defense and slammed his fist into a chair when he got back to the bench, before heading to the locker room. He was subsequently ruled out for the second half. Fortunately, the X-rays were negative, but Griffin may still miss time. We're still waiting to hear word on the result of the MRI. "We should have more news [Saturday]," coach Doc Rivers said. "So we don’t know [how he is doing] is the answer." Check back soon for an update.
Apr 22 - 9:47 AM

Blake Griffin (bruised right big toe) will not return to Friday's game.

The good news is X-rays were negative, so hopefully it's only a day-to-day thing. Griffin himself also reportedly said the injury was worse than he thought, so this could be a multiple-game issue. Marreese Speight started the second half and will have to step up in a big way. Plus, DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul will have to bring their A game.
Apr 21 - 11:28 PM

Blake Griffin (right toe) went to the locker room in the second quarter on Friday and will have X-rays.

He looked to have a tweak to his lower leg after a drive to the basket. A report from Jazz radio says Griffin looked to say it's "worse than I thought" as he went back to the locker room. We'll see if he starts the second half.

Blake Griffin hit 11-of-21 shots and a 3-pointer for 24 points, five rebounds, two assists and a block in Tuesday's crucial Game 2 99-91 win over the Jazz to tie the series at 1-1.

Griffin's stat line wasn't exactly chock full of goodness, but he led his team in scoring, hit a 3-pointer and played pretty well on a night the Clippers desperately needed a win. Game 3 is in Utah on Friday and it doesn't sound like Defensive Player of the Year candidate Rudy Gobert is going to be likely for that one, which should mean more good things from Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.
Apr 19 - 1:14 AM

Blake Griffin scored 26 points with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, six turnovers and two 3-pointers in 43 minutes during a Game 1 loss to the Jazz on Saturday.

He was hot in the first half with 20 points, but didn't have any field goal makes in the fourth quarter. The Jazz actually went small against Griffin and had Joe Johnson defend him for most of the fourth quarter. Despite his size, Griffin has struggled at times against smaller defenders, but it's still not enough to draw a conclusion here. Based on the playing time in this game, you can bet Griffin will get some serious burn in this series.
Apr 16 - 1:14 AM

Blake Griffin carried the Clippers during Wednesday's 112-101 win vs. Dallas, making 11-of-14 shots to score a game-high 32 points.

Griffin went 2-of-4 from deep and 8-of-10 from the FT line, while contributing six assists, four rebounds, one steal and just one turnover. He's been the deciding factor in L.A.'s four-game win streak, and his hyper-efficient scoring has been an unexpected boost for plenty of late-season fantasy owners. In the past four games, Blake is a combined 45-of-64 from the field (70.3 percent).
