Danny Ainge continues to do his due diligence.
According to the Boston Herald, the Boston Celtics called the L.A. Clippers to ask whether forward Blake Griffin is available. Ainge’s conversations about Griffin did not extend past preliminary discussion, as has been the case with many of the Celtics’ trade rumors.
During the 2015-16 season, the 26-year-old is averaging 34.9 minutes for a career-high 23.2 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 5.0 assists. He’s shooting 50.8 percent from the field and 72.5 percent from the foul line.
