With Chris Paul headed to the Houston Rockets, the LA Clippers will turn their attention to keeping Blake Griffin, a source told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.
Griffin notified the team last week that he will not pick up his option for next season.
The Clippers are of the understanding that it will take a five-year deal to keep Griffin, a source told Shelburne.
Complicating the matter however, sources told ESPN’s Michael Eaves, is that Griffin may not be ready for the start of the next season and could possibly be out until December due to a toe injury that cut short his postseason.
