The Detroit Pistons and forward Blake Griffin reportedly have agreed on a contract buyout.

Griffin will become an unrestricted free agent.

The six-time All-Star reportedly already has interest from many of the league’s top playoff contenders.

Griffin had been out of the Pistons’ lineup recently, as the two sides had tried to work out a trade or buyout.

This season, Griffin is averaging just 12.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game.

He hasn’t looked like the player he was in his prime, but Griffin could provide a contender with a veteran presence and scoring punch.
