ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Detroit Pistons have agreed to a contract buyout with former All-Star forward Blake Griffin (pictured).

Griffin is owed the remainder of nearly $37 million this season.  And he was widely expected to be owed the $39 million player option for next season (the final year of his deal)that Griffin is/was expected to exercise.

Terms of the buyout have not been disclosed yet.  The Pistons are 10-26 this season (exactly halfway through this shortened season).  And the team has been concentrating on playing their young players as part of a long rebuild.  They play the Charlotte Hornets on Thursday after the NBA's All-Star Break.

Blake is now an unrestricted free agent and can sign with any NBA team.
