Rumor season is a fun season. Players are being connected to other teams and the Lakers are usually one of those teams.
Blake Griffin has been a great player for the Clippers and they have come close to appearing in the Western Conference Finals. With another season of the Clippers not reaching the Finals, Griffin may look at options somewhere else. It appears that the Lakers are an option according to Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report:
That Griffin would also stay and reap the biggest payday he can seems likely, too—in theory. But more and more people around the league believe he would be open to a fresh start—perhaps with the Lakers or the Boston Celtics, who have coveted Griffin for years and would offer a new chance to win. The most intriguing fit might be if he were to go home to Oklahoma to join Russell Westbrook and the Thunder, but his interests in the entertainment industry make staying in Los Angeles a priority.
It is clear that Rob Pelinka and Magic Johnson are going to have an emphasis on free agency and acquiring a big name free agent.
Getting Blake would be a huge get for the team. It is still far from a sure thing and the odds are not in the Lakers favor. If the Lakers can get a meeting with him, they might have a shot at getting him. A contender is the more likely outcome for Griffin.
