Report: Blake Griffin scheduled to meet with Suns

Bruce Cooper warns the Phoenix Suns that Blake Griffin's injury history may mean he's not worth a big free-agent contract.

Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin is set to become an unrestricted free agent this weekend, and the Suns may be on the short list of possible landing spots.

According to the Los Angeles Times' Brad Turner, Griffin has a meeting scheduled Saturday with the Suns.

The Suns cannot offer Griffin as much money as the Clippers, nor can they offer him a fifth year on a contract as Los Angeles can.

But with Clippers point guard Chris Paul headed to Houston, it's possible Griffin could want a change of scenery, and he's said in the past that he enjoys Phoenix.

One thing the Suns can offer is a medical team that may be more equipped to handle his body than that of the Clippers. The Suns' medical staff has long been considered one of the best in the league, keeping players healthy and on the court.

Given Griffin's extensive injury history, that could be a consideration.

Other rumored potential landing spots for Griffin include Miami and Boston.
