Report: Warriors showing interest in free agent Blake Griffin originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area
The Warriors reportedly are interested in adding a veteran big man to their 2023-24 roster.
The 34-year-old last played with the Celtics in 2022-23, averaging career lows of 4.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 13.9 minutes played across 41 games.
While Griffin’s numbers significantly decreased last season, he’s a career 19-8-4 player who has shot nearly 50 percent over the course of his 14-year NBA career. During his first seven seasons with the Clippers, the team that drafted him No. 1 overall in 2009, Griffin averaged 21.5 points on 51.8-percent shooting, along with 9.4 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.0 steals in 35.2 minutes.
Griffin was traded to the Detroit Pistons in the midst of the 2017-2018 season and spent the next three seasons before signing with the Brooklyn Nets in 2021 and then eventually landing in Boston for the 2022-23 season.
Griffin isn’t the same electric, above-the-rim sensation as he once was, but he’d provide Golden State with solid spot minutes off the bench throughout a long season.
