Blake Griffin Agrees To Five-Year, $95 Million Deal With Los Angeles Clippers

Blake Griffin is about to get paid. According to a report from Ken Berger of CBSSports.com, Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers have agreed to a five-year, $95 million deal. That full amount relies on Griffin making another All-Star team and All-NBA selection, which he is likely to do.

This deal seems to have been inevitable, but it wasn't actually agreed upon until Tuesday when the actual reports surfaced. Griffin is set to make just over 7.2 million in 2012-13 and had a qualifying offer for the following season. Next on the Clippers' priority list has to be retaining the services of Chris Paul, whose contract expires at the end of the upcoming season.

Signing Paul to an extension would ensure that the Clippers keep the foundation of their playoff team in tact.
