The Dallas Mavericks added another player to their roster on Friday, signing forward Eric Griffin. He has been making a name for himself in the Summer League for the Mavericks, throwing down some impressive dunks including posterizing former Mavericks point guard Shane Larkin.
From the Mavericks’ website:
The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have signed free agent forward Eric Griffin. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Griffin (6-8, 194) has played in four games for the Mavericks at the Las Vegas Summer League and has averaged 9.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.3 steals in 19.3 minutes.
While the Mavericks won’t officially disclose the terms of the deal, ESPN Dallas’ Tim MacMahon reported that it was a non-guaranteed one-year deal. While that is good news for Griffin, MacMahon also reports that it is more likely that he spends the upcoming season with the Texas Legend of the Development League.
Mavs sign high-flying summer league forward Eric Griffin to a nonguaranteed 1-year deal. Go to camp with Mavs, likely to land with Legends.

Last season Griffin played with the Miami Heat during the pre-season before playing internationally with Gauros de lara in Venezuela and Leones de Ponce in Puerto Rico.
