“They’ve got a lot of good players on that team,” Griffin said. “I’m hoping I can come in and learn from the older guys, help them out and move forward.”
Griffin should flourish running with Davis leading the break.
“Maybe I can fill a gap that they’ve had or been missing,” Griffin said. “I’m a versatile guy and can adapt to what they do. I can dribble a bit, pass, and working with more of a traditional center [in Kaman] will help. He’s done a great job since he’s been in the league, and hopefully we’ll work well together.”
Meanwhile, Neil Olshey confirms that Griffin is the target:
“After spending a lot of time and effort preparing for the possibility that we didn’t get the No. 1 pick, this now allows us a lot of clarity to take Blake Griffin,” said assistant general manager Neil Olshey. “It puts us at ease for the next six weeks.”
