SNY’s Ian Begley confirmed earlier on Sunday that several teams that were interested in Griffin expected him to sign with the Nets after he cleared waivers.
Though Griffin isn’t the same player he used to be, his potential arrival in Brooklyn completes what should now easily be considered the scariest superteam in the NBA.
In 20 games with Detroit this season, he averaged 12.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.9 assists in just over 31 minutes per game.
Griffin was an All-Star as recently as 2019, so there’s still potential for him to be a force on the court, but injuries have kept him down in recent years, so we’ll just have to wait and see which version of the former high-flyer shows up in Brooklyn.
The Athletic’s Shams Charania was first to report Griffin had cleared waivers earlier today and was expected to join the team.
