Veteran forward Blake Griffin will return to the Brooklyn Nets next season on a one-year deal, according to ESPN.

Terms were not disclosed.

Griffin, 32, joined the Nets midway through last season after the Detroit Pistons bought out his contract.

Joining the superstar trio of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden, Griffin averaged 10 points and 4.7 rebounds in 26 games (10 starts) to finish the regular season.

Griffin started all 12 playoff games and averaged 9 points and 5.9 rebounds.

In 668 career games with the Los Angeles Clippers (2010-18), Pistons (2018-21) and Nets, Griffin has averaged 20.9 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.3 assists and made six All-Star teams.

The Clippers originally selected Griffin No. 1 overall in 2009.
