Griffin played 56 games last year in Brooklyn, averaging 6.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game while shooting 42.5 percent from the field. The six-time All-Star has bounced around the League since the Clippers traded him to the Detroit Pistons. Griffin has played for four teams from 2017-18: the Clippers, Pistons, Nets, and Celtics.
Last season was the first time the former Rookie of the Year came off the bench more often than he started, the first time he averaged fewer than 25 minutes per game, and the first time he averaged fewer than 11 points per game. Boston will use Griffin for his veteran leadership and playmaking ability at the four-spot, not only as a bouncy scorer but as an underrated passer out of the low and mid-post.
