Miami has point guard Goran Dragic

  • Miami HeatThe Heat have already lined up the first meeting with Gordon Hayward, and with almost $40 million in cap space, Miami could potentially sign multiple high-profile free agents. Griffin could play alongside Hassan Whiteside in the frontcourt, where Whiteside's ability to protect the rim could help make up NBA 2K MT for Griffin's defensive deficiencies, and Whiteside could complement Griffin offensively.Miami has point guard Goran Dragic and Whiteside both under contract for at least two more years, with promising second-year players Justise Winslow and Josh Richardson on the wing, making power forward the team's biggest position of need. If healthy, Griffin could step into the Heat's starting lineup and average somewhere close to 20 and 10, like he has most of his career.

     

    Phoenix SunsDespite acquiring two power forwards who were drafted in the top-10 in the 2016 NBA Draft, the Suns are pushing to sign Griffin in free agency. Phoenix has reportedly arranged a meeting with the 28-year-old forward once free agency begins Saturday, and the team could offer Griffin a four-year max contract worth roughly $130 million. Such a contract would only be possible if the Suns decline all of their free agents, according to SB Nation.Phoenix's best days are still ahead, after finishing 24-58 last season, as many of the team's key contributors are younger than 25.

     

    The Suns could try to sell Griffin on the team's young core of Devin Booker, Eric Bledsoe, Marquese Chriss and this year's No. 4 overall pick, Josh Jackson.Denver NuggetsFor some NBA fans, the Nuggets are potentially surprise contenders in the Blake Griffin sweepstakes. After a potential three-team trade with the Cavaliers and Pacers that would've sent Kevin Love to the Nuggets failed to materialize, Denver is reportedly targeting Griffin. He would add another double-double threat to the Nuggets' frontcourt alongside center Nikola Jokic, who is coming off a season in which he averaged 16.7 points and 9.8 rebounds per game.

     

    In order to keep up with the arm's race that is currently taking place in the NBA, Denver needs to add another star to its roster, and free agency might be the best avenue to do so without having to lose one of its young guards — Gary Harris, Emmanuel Mudiay and Jamal Murray — or future first-round picks in a trade. After going 40-42 last season, finishing ninth in the Western Conference and one game out of eighth, Denver would boost its chances to get over the hump and safely into the playoffs with the addition of Griffin.
