The Clippers kept busy this summer, re-signing Chauncey Billups and bringing Lamar Odom back to the franchise in a deal with Dallas. They also landed free agents Jamal Crawford, Grant Hill, Willie Green, Ronny Turiaf and Ryan Hollins.
“This is a great place to play and guys want to come here,” (Blake) Griffin said. “The fact that we’ve had guys toward the end of their careers, guys like Grant Hill, that chose to play here, I think that says a lot about our team and the direction we’re heading in. It’s great to be a part of something that has kind of turned the corner.”
Griffin endorsed Gary Sacks, the Clippers’ director of player personnel, to replace Neil Olshey as the team’s general manager. Olshey left to take on the same role in Portland.
“If he doesn’t get the GM job I’ll be shocked and definitely a little disappointed because he deserves it and I think everybody else thinks he deserves it,” Griffin said. “I hope that it’s going to be him.”
