Decision to remain with Clippers a ‘no-brainer,’ says Griffin

- BY JILL PAINTER LOPEZ

Blake Griffin was back in his usual place, front and centre on a Clippers stage.

After opting out of his contract, Griffin didn’t spend the off-season toiling over whether to sign with another team - like his teammate Deandre Jordan famously did. For Griffin, it was an easy decision to sign a max five-year deal to stay with the only NBA team he’s played for in his seven-year career.

“I want to say how excited I am to be back. This has been my home since I was drafted. A lot went into this decision,” Griffin said Wednesday. “In the end, I realized this was a no-brainer for me. This is the place where I want to start and finish my career. . This next chapter and next season for the Clippers and myself, I’ve never been more excited about an opportunit­y.”
