Nearly a year after Blake Griffin was traded by the Los Angeles Clippers to the Detroit Pistons, he is content with the relocation.
“Yeah, I’m glad it happened,” Griffin told the Times. “I’m not saying I don’t miss certain people. There were some awesome fans that I got to know and I felt like I was very close with them. And there are some people you miss over there, but it was just time for a fresh start.
“I’m glad to be here.”
Teammates of Griffin say he's thriving in a leadership role in the locker room.
