The Los Angeles Clippers' future looks bright after locking up the face of their franchise for years to come.
Blake Griffin and the Clips have agreed to a five year extension that can pay him up to $95 million, if he reaches certain goals. If Griffin is voted an All Star starter or if he is named to another All NBA team he would receive these bonuses under the "Derrick Rose Rule".
The rule allows players finishing their rookie contracts to make 30 percent of their team's salary cap, if he has been voted an All-Star starter, been voted to an All NBA team twice, or win an MVP award.
Griffin's extension will go into effect for the 2013-14 season. He can opt out in the final year of his contract.
Griffin told ESPNLosAngeles last weekend about his views on the Clips saying, "I feel good about them (the Clippers). Like I've said, everything's been positive. Everything's been moving forward. It's been a good experience. I'm not a believer in breaking up something that's working."
The next goal for the Clippers is to lock up Chris Paul, but Paul will most likely not sign an extension this summer and will become a free agent next offseason.
