Blake Griffin will continue his career with the Celtics after signing a one-year deal with the team. Although the 33-year-old forward is no longer considered a superstar in the NBA, his new teammate Marcus Smart consider him a great addition.

“Love it…He’s not above the rim anymore, but he still does great things…Last year he led the league in charges taken. For a guy that doesn’t play as much, that speaks volumes…It’s a great vet for some of these young guys to listen to,” Smart said, per Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe.

Last season Griffin averaged 6.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 17.1 minutes over 56 games for the Nets.
