4. Blake Griffin
He is not the dazzling sensation he used to be. Blake Griffin in 2023 is a far cry from the must-see-TV player he was a decade ago. Even so, there could be something to having him around in Minnesota as he approaches the end of his professional career.
Unfortunately, injuries have added up for Griffin over the course of the last half-decade. Those injuries have been the primary culprit behind him taking a step back from high-flying dunker to simply a big forward with average athleticism.
But even with how his game has changed, Blake has found a way to stay relevant. With his playing time dwindling since leaving Detroit in 2021, Griffin has been humble enough to accept a smaller role while still often being a positive for the Nets and Celtics in limited minutes.
That is the primary reason he could be a good fit with the Timberwolves. Any time a former star can realize where they have regressed and be willing to step into a different role for the good of the team, it will always lead to positive results.
Late in his career, Griffin has also embraced more of a defensive mindset. He possesses solid footwork and defensive instincts, and could still provide quality minutes on that end for Minnesota. The Wolves should go ahead and pick him up before someone else does.
