Blake Griffin to Sign 5-Year, $95 Million Contract Extension with Clippers

Blake Griffin to Sign 5-Year, $95 Million Contract Extension with Clippers

It looks like one of the main beneficiaries of the new Lob City movement in L.A. is going to be sticking around for a little while longer. Even though he is still under contract for another season, Blake Griffin is reportedly going to sign a 5-year, $95 million extension to stay with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Broderick Turner of the LA Times

Meanwhile, the LA Times also acquired information from "people who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter" that Paul didn't accept his three-year extension offer worth $60 million. It is believed by those close with CP3 that it's in the point guard's best in financial interest to wait after next season to sign an extension. Still, the focus must be on re-signing Paul because how good is Lob City without it's main component?
