LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Clippers have exercised their fourth-year contract option on rookie of the year Blake Griffin, keeping him with the club through 2012-13.

The Clippers on Tuesday also exercised their third-year contract options on point guard Eric Bledsoe and forward Al-Farouq Aminu, who just completed their rookie seasons.

Los Angeles also extended a qualifying offer to shot-blocking center DeAndre Jordan, making him a restricted free agent.
Griffin was the first unanimous choice in 21 years as the NBA’s  top rookie after leading all rookies in scoring and rebounding. The 2009 No. 1 draft pick missed an entire season with a broken kneecap before becoming the first rookie All-Star in eight years.
