Blake Griffin has reached an agreement on a five-year, $173 million deal with the LA Clippers, league sources confirmed to ESPN on Friday.

Griffin did not get a no-trade clause as part of the new contract, sources told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

Griffin met with team owner Steve Ballmer, president and coach Doc Rivers, special consultant Jerry West and several players at Staples Center on Friday. One person involved reportedly described the meeting as "a trip down memory lane," with players Jamal Crawford, DeAndre Jordan, Patrick Beverley, Wesley Johnson and Sam Dekker all featured in a "production."

At the end of the two-hour fete, Griffin rose and spoke, telling teammates, his coach and the owner that "I want my legacy to be a Clipper."

An emotional scene ensued, and many among the group, including Rivers and Ballmer, went out to dinner afterward, sources said.
