He averaged 4.1 points and 3.8 rebounds and started 16 games for the franchise, logging 13.9 minutes per game.

The Celtics elected not to immediately resign Griffin this offseason while making other roster moves ahead of the season.

Boston signed sharpshooter Svi Mykhailiuk last week — moving the roster to 14 players and leaving just one roster spot.

According to a report from the Boston Globe, the Celtics would “welcome a return by veteran big man Blake Griffin.”

The former All-Star impressed the front office in his one year with the team as a solid locker room presence.

Griffin spent 13 seasons in the NBA and playing for four teams. 

He grew up in Oklahoma and was a star high school player.

Griffin was a McDonald’s All-American and had offers from every top college. 

He decided to stay home, attended Oklahoma University, and played alongside his brother Taylor.

Griffin played two seasons for the Sooner before entering his name in the 2009 draft.

The Los Angeles Clippers selected Griffin with the first overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft.

Griffin instantly became a star after missing his first season with an injury.

He won Rookie of the Year once he returned and continued the electric play, making five All-NBA teams and winning an NBA Slam Dunk contest while in Los Angeles.

 Griffin bounced around to the Detroit Pistons, Brooklyn Nets, and Celtics, where he spent his last season.

The former No.1 pick has earned nearly $260million and last appeared in the NBA in the 2022-23 NBA season.
