Brooklyn Nets and veteran star Blake Griffin reached an agreement Monday on a one-year deal, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Griffin joined the Nets mid-season to reinforce an already star-studded team after agreeing to a buyout with the Detroit Pistons.
The 2009 first overall pick averaged 10.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists while shooting 49.2 percent from the floor, including 38.3 percent on threes, in 26 appearances after the move to Brooklyn.
Despite not being his old explosive self, the Oklahoma product made a difference and established himself as a vital role player for the Nets.
He will be able to remain a part of a contending team consisted of Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving, hoping to propel the Nets to their first NBA title.
