The Detroit Pistons are in the midst of a rebuild but Blake Griffin isn’t worried about where he fits in the plan.
When the team shifted its focus, questions were raised about where the 10-year veteran would fit into Detroit’s blueprint for the future. In a video conference call Thursday, Griffin said he told the Pistons’ front office, headed by new general manager Troy Weaver, that he was willing to take on the role they needed him to assume.
“I’m here to do whatever they ask me,” Griffin, 31, said. “Whether that’s sort of taking on a different role, taking on more of a role, whatever it might be, whatever they feel the need for me to do.”
More than two-thirds of Pistons’ roster is the age of 25 and the team poised to another another young piece with a top-10 pick in this year’s draft.
