Blake Griffin is entering his seventh year with the Clippers, and she says he doesn't want it to end any time soon.
Griffin recently sat down with Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders for an interview that was published over this past weekend. Here's what he had to say when Kennedy asked him about his future:
Griffin signed a five-year, max deal with the Clippers that will expire at the end of the 2017-18 season. He will be 29 years old when he hits free agency again, just young enough to secure one last big-time deal, though we don't exactly know what max contracts will look like in 2018 with the threat of a 2017 lockout or strike looming over the NBA at the moment.
Who knows what happens in three years? Things tend to change over that time. We'll just have to wait it out.
Basketball Insiders: “Could you see yourself finishing your career with the Clippers?”
Blake Griffin: “Yeah, I mean L.A. is my home now. I’m not looking to go anywhere. With that being said, you never know [in this business]. But I’m happy here, I love it here, and I would love to finish my career here.”
