BLAKE Griffin has made a fortune in the NBA — upwards of $260million to be exact.

However, the six-time NBA All-Star, 34, is an unrestricted free agent and remains without a team.

Last season, Griffin played 41 games for the Boston Celtics on a veteran’s minimum one-year deal.

He averaged 4.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 13.9 minutes per game.

Griffin only played in one playoff game for Boston who made it to Game 7 of the 2023 Eastern Conference Finals.

The Celtics have one roster spot available for the 13-year NBA veteran.

But according to Masslive’s Brian Robb, Boston is set to “likely be moving on” from the 34-year-old Griffin and will attempt to find depth in other positions.

A product of Oklahoma, Griffin entered the league with the Los Angeles Clippers in 2009 as the first overall pick and carries many accolades.

After missing the 2010 season due to a knee injury, Griffin had a historic rookie year in 2011 — appearing in the All-Star game, winning the Slam Dunk Contest, and claiming Rookie of the Year.

He’d make the All-Star team five more times and was named to five All-NBA teams.

Griffin signed a five-year, $173 million contract extension with the Clippers in 2017.

He was ruled out for two months after suffering a sprain.

And a month after his injury healed, Griffin was traded to the Detroit Pistons.

Injuries continued to derail the 34-year-old as he’s only appeared in over 60 games once since 2018.

Before signing with the Celtics last season, Griffin played with the Brooklyn Nets for two seasons.

For his career, Griffin has averaged 19 points, eight rebounds, and four assists per game.

As for Griffin’s personal life, he shares two children with his former girlfriend, Brynn Cameron.

Griffin’s been linked with numerous stars, including models Kendall Jenner and Kari Klinkenborg.
