Report: Blake Griffin Signs Max Deal to Stay In L.A.

Per CBS Sports, Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers formally agreed Tuesday to the five-year max extension that the team offered when the free-agency negotiating period opened July 1, league sources told CBSSports.com.

The deal will fall under the so-called "Derrick Rose Rule," meaning Griffin's extension will start at 30 percent of the cap in 2013-14 -- provided he reaches certain benchmarks. Under the new collective bargaining agreement, a player with less than seven years of service can receive a max contract starting at 30 percent of the salary cap if he's voted MVP of the league, All-NBA first, second or third team twice or an All-Star starter twice.
