Along with Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul; Blake Griffin of the L.A. Clippers could depart via free agency next summer, should he wish to.

The popular rumour for the five-time All-Star suggests that he might eye a return to his hometown in Oklahoma.

The 27-year-old was born and raised in Oklahoma City and attended Oklahoma college for two years, where he made quite the name for himself.

He was the national college player of the year in 2009 and that very same year Griffin was drafted first overall in the NBA.

The forward is now in the fourth year of the five-year max extension he signed with the Clippers in the 2012-13 season and has an early termination option to enter free agency after this season, but will he go home and join the Thunder?

"People that I talk to and my friends and family from back home, I think they're ... I would say true friends and family, where they know that my main focus is this season and this team," Griffin told ESPN after the Clippers defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 111-80 on Wednesday night.

"And they know that I enjoy playing here and I love this team, coaching staff, everybody. So they know that that's my main focus. So I think they pretty much know not to bring that up."
