Blake Griffin, the first overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, remains one of the most important names available in NBA free agency.

Blake Griffin, a six-time NBA All-Star and five-time All-NBA performer, is still a free agent this offseason.

Griffin, 33, has struggled in the second half of his career since being traded from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Detroit Pistons in 2018 due to injuries.

Griffin has only played in 60 games once since the start of the 2017-18 season, and he has been with the Brooklyn Nets since being waived by the Pistons during the 2020-21 season.

Last season, the former No. 1 overall pick played very little on the Nets' bench, averaging just 6.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, and shooting 42.5 percent from the field.

Griffin's experience and defensive awareness, however, are what make him an intriguing free agent name.

Not to mention, he is the ideal mentor for a team to bring in if it has a lot of youth in its frontcourt.

With teams around the league starting to fill out their rosters with minimum-wage players, it's only a matter of time before Blake Griffin agrees to another one-year contract.
