Former Detroit Pistsons star will soon be on the move. But he’s officially no longer on the Pistons. The Six-time NBA All-Star Blake Griffin agreed to a contract buyout with the Detroit Pistons and will become an unrestricted free agent. The Brooklyn Nets, Golden State Warriors, Miami Heat and Portland Trail Blazers are expected to be among the teams Griffin will be considering for his next stop according to ESPN. However there is one clear cut frontrunner.
The Brooklyn Nets are believed to be leaders to sign six-time All-Star Blake Griffin, sources tell me and @JLEdwardsIII. Rival teams with interest are expecting Griffin to choose Nets as a title favorite for chance to win a championship.

I just got out of work, but you guys know what time it is…
Blake Griffin needs to come finish what he started. If he wants nothing to do with the Clippers, I would completely understand… BUT he should know how much the fanbase loves him.
