Jake Fischer on Blake Griffin: Sounds like he’s not going back to Brooklyn. Sounds like he’s going to Los Angeles. The Clippers would be a pretty weird, funny, silly result with the whole exit there. So I mean, the Lakers would make more sense in that regard. But I honestly can’t tell you which one is more likely.

Marc Stein on Blake Griffin: I’ve heard of a few teams on Blake that aren’t in Los Angeles, but I haven’t confirmed them yet. So until I can confirm them. I’m not going to tell them. I need two resources before I give it away, but I will say that I have heard of some other destinations that are not in Los Angeles?† -through marcstein.substack.com / June 30, 2022
Griffin showed that he can still play with energy and inspire his team during last year’s playoffs, even if it was only in two games for a Nets team to be swept. Griffin, due to his lack of mobility, was taken out of rotation by Brooklyn last season, but played with great aggressiveness in the final two games of the team’s ill-fated postseason run against Boston. “There will be some teams looking at him,” said an Eastern Conference executive. “Chicago, Miami, the Lakers, maybe even Boston. At least they would be in the mix.” -through heavy.com / June 29, 2022
Andre Drummond is an unlimited free agent and has appeared in multiple off-season videos sporting Nets gear. They don’t seem inclined to bring back the aging centers LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin, put both on the shelf. That leaves Day’Ron Sharpe, last year’s first round and current unwritten rookie signer Brison Gresham as the only big men under contract. -through New York Post / June 29, 2022
