Griffin cleared waivers on Sunday. He was released by the Detroit Pistons on Friday after nearly three-plus seasons with the team.
He informed Nets GM Sean Marks that he would sign with the Nets on Sunday night. With this move, he joins a stacked roster.
He’s receiving a veteran minimum contract for the rest of the season. Griffin reunites with former teammate DeAndre Jordan.
Griffin also joins a team that’s led by Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving. After acquiring Harden in January, the Nets lacked front court depth.
Steve Nash will likely use Griffin as a backup to Jordan, who is the team’s starting center. Griffin could also backup Durant and Jeff Green at power forward.
This season, he made 20 appearances, including 20 starts. Griffin is averaging a career-low of 12.3 points per game.
He is also averaging 5.2 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.1 blocks per game.
