Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin officially signed a multi-year extension shortly after the NBA's moratorium ended.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but the Los Angeles Times earlier reported Griffin's extension is worth up to $95 million over five years.

Griffin, the NBA's top rookie for 2010-11, has averaged 21.7 points and 11.5 rebounds in his two seasons with the Clippers. He has never missed a game in his two years after sitting out the entire 2009-10 campaign with a knee injury.

The Clippers, according to the Times report, also made an offer to guard Chris Paul, who apparently turned down a three-year, $60 million extension. Paul, who was acquired by the Clippers in a trade with New Orleans prior to last season and also joins Griffin as part of the U.S. Olympic basketball team, still has a year remaining on his contract.
