Nets forward Blake Griffin has re-signed for another year. Griffin’s new deal is worth a reported one year, for a yet-unknown amount of money. He was traded from the Detroit Pistons to the Nets during the 2020-2021 season and played a role in Brooklyn’s playoff run due to injury to Irving and Harden.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted the news on Monday night.

Griffin is most well-known for his time with the Los Angeles Clippers. The combination of him, Chris Paul and Deandre Jordan came to be known as “Lob City,” due to the high-flying alley-oops that would take place in almost every game.
After his time in L.A., he played with the Pistons from 2018-2021. During the end of his Pistons tenure, he rode the bench in an attempt to keep him healthy to maximize his trade potential. It is rumored that Griffin welcomed the trade and may have even demanded it behind closed doors.
He will rejoin the Nets’ super team in an attempt to get further than the Conference Semifinals in the 2022 season.
