3. Golden State Warriors
Blake Griffin isn’t a stranger to playing in the California sun, having spent his first 7 1/2 seasons with the LA Clippers.
Fast forward to his 14th season in the league and it makes sense for him to return to the West Coast, albeit with a different team.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Golden State Warriors are interested in Griffin’s services. For starters, they could use the size up front considering that their only players standing 6-foot-9 or taller are JaMychal Green, Trayce Jackson-Davis, Kevon Looney and Dario Saric.
While Looney is great at collecting boards, having multiple reliable rebounders is never a bad thing. Griffin isn’t going to go out there and produce double-doubles every night (or at all), but the fact that he averaged 9.8 rebounds per 36 minutes at this stage of his career is still impressive.
Another reason why I like the idea of Griffin joining the Warriors is that it would reunite him with Chris Paul. The duo played together for six seasons on the Clippers and led Los Angeles to six consecutive postseason appearances.
Griffin and CP3 reuniting for a chance to win a championship is a movie script in the making. With players like Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Andrew Wiggins around them, the ex-Clippers pair would have a legitimate shot at accomplishing their goal.
