Betting Odds for Blake Griffin’s Next Team: Best Bet
Now that you’re aware of the betting odds for Blake Griffin’s next team following the Detroit Pistons buyout, we bet you’re dying to know who we see BG ballin’ with next. So where will Blake Griffin sign? Check out our best Blake Griffin bet below.
Odds to Sign Blake Griffin: Lakers Make Most Sense
The end of Blake’s career is an injury away, and he knows that. Why not take a page out of Steve Nash’s book and head for the Hills? He would have the best odds of winning an NBA championship, and then he could simply sail off into the sunset somewhere. Perhaps he could reconcile his relationship with the Kardashians, team up with Tristan Thompson, and they could all come up with some huge new hit TV series, “Blake and Shake” or “BG and TT”.
Blake Griffin in Beantown?
Speaking of the Boston Celtics, yes, they could also use a big. But rumors suggest the C’s are far more interested in the likes of:
All of these players make way more sense for Boston than a washed-up Blake Griffin.
South Beach for Blake?
Blake Griffin is not built for Miami. Pat Riley likes tough, gritty, athletic “dogs” who get after it and compete with an edge. Blake Griffin is not that. He’s never been that, aside from his athleticism early on in his career before injuries occurred.
Blake Boroughs in Brooklyn?
The Brooklyn Nets are the heavy favorites and it's probably because they don’t play any defense whatsoever, which makes Griffin a great fit from that perspective. But the Nets are looking for a little more rim protection after sending Jarrett Allen to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the four-team trade that saw them acquire the talents of James Harden. Think of current Cavs Andre Drummond or JaVale McGee.
Having said that, the Blake Griffin odds have BKN as the favorites to land the power forward and Shams Charania says the same, so maybe there's some fire to all that smoke. The chances of reaching the Finals with an elite team in a weaker Eastern Conference, compared to the West, also has its advantages.
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.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) March 5, 2021
Not to mention his old "Lob City" pal, DeAndre Jordan, is there as well. Sure, you'll probably see a Blake Griffin dunk every once in a while, but the Timofey Mozgov days are over like a Vince Carter slam dunk contest (insert Kenny Smith voice).
Kyrie Irving is not Chris Paul when it comes to passing the rock. The Beard can definitely drop a dime, but neither Blake Griffin or Kevin Durant will be playing above the rim. The Slim Reaper will always be able to rely on his offensive skill set, while Blake Griffin's repertoire has almost always been the ally-oop. Regardless, Blake Griffin will likely join Brooklyn's frontcourt following the All-Star break.
Warriors and West Coast Wonders
The Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers could both use Blake’s passing abilities out of the high post, as well as his improved three-point range. But with a passion for entertainment, we’re putting our money on Griffin going back to La La Land, only this time he’ll have more of a Hollywood ending with the Lake Show, all while sticking it to their little brother. There’s no way BG goes back to the Clippers, right? Plus, they would have to make a trade to clear out money because of the hard cap.
Blake Griffin Trade Odds
The Pistons were obviously hoping for a Blake Griffin trade, but matching salary was going to be challenging where he was owed $36.6 million this season and $39 million in 2021-22. Griffin ended up giving back $13.3 million of his massive contract in his buyout with the Pistons, which was the 7th biggest buyout in NBA history. He had $75M on his deal for this year and next. The Oklahoma City Thunder and Charlotte Hornets were also considered as potential suitors, but Blake Griffin betting odds currently have neither team on the board.
Gores Wishes Griffin Well
"Blake has been a great representative for our franchise and for the city of Detroit," owner Tom Gores said in a statement on Friday. "His work ethic and his approach to the game contributed a lot to our culture. He has been a consummate pro and we wish him continued success. I'm grateful for everything he did for our team and for our community."
Blake Griffin Outcome Mutually Beneficial
"I thank the Pistons organization for working together on an outcome that benefits all involved and I wish the franchise success in the future,'' Griffin said in a statement that was released by the team.
