Blake Griffin is looking for a real-estate score on the Westside of Los Angeles.

The former L.A. Clippers star, who last year was traded to the Detroit Pistons, has put his home in Pacific Palisades on the market for $10.995 million, or about $2 million more than Griffin paid for the property six years ago.

Gated from the street, the Cape Cod-inspired house has about 9,600 square feet of living space spread across three levels.

On the main floor, the house is entered through a 24-foot-tall foyer with a curved floating staircase and a chandelier that draws the eye upward. Living areas pair dark wood floors and crisp white millwork for a clean aesthetic.

Off the entry are formal living and dining rooms, a center-island kitchen and family room with a fireplace. A separate office wears a subdued face, with dark gray wall treatments. The lower-level home theater has a burgundy color scheme. There’s also a game room and a gym.

A total of six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms includes a master suite comprised of a sitting room, two dressing rooms/closets and a tiled bath.

Pocketing glass doors open to the rear, where a saltwater swimming pool sits level with the patio. A basketball half-court, an outdoor kitchen and lawn fill out the roughly one-third-acre lot.

Griffin, 29, made five All-Star teams in the better part of eight seasons with the Clippers, who drafted the power forward with the first overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft. Through 45 games with the Pistons this year, he is averaging a career-high 26.3 points, 8.1 rebounds and 5.3 assists.
