Eisen asked Griffin if his future Nets teammates recruited him, and the six-time All-Star offered the following response: "Well, not until the appropriate time, because of tampering [rules]. But yeah, I spoke to some of them."
The Pistons announced that they reached a buyout agreement with Griffin on Friday.
Griffin also spoke about why he chose Brooklyn in a Bleacher Report AMA session Monday.
"They have a need for a four-man," Griffin said. "I've always had a lot of respect for Steve Nash and all of the guys that they have. [General manager] Sean Marks has done [a] great job there. It was a tough decision and I wanted to be on a team that was contending."
Griffin also said that his relationship with ex-Los Angeles Clippers teammate DeAndre Jordan, who is now with Brooklyn, played a factor in the choice.
"We go way back," Griffin said. "Anybody who you're that familiar with it always makes it easier. That definitely played a part."
Griffin, a five-time All-NBA selection and six-time All-Star, has averaged 12.3 points and 5.2 rebounds in 20 games for the Pistons this season. This is his 11th year in the Association.
The 6'9" forward also moves from a team last in the Eastern Conference to one just a half-game out of first place in the 24-13 Nets, who are looking for their first-ever NBA title.
