   2013 Summer League rosters, Orlando Summer Pro League - Miami

Eric Griffin

Campbell graduate Griffin was in summer league with the Lakers last year, but barely played. He spent the season in Italy, playing for LegaDue team Fileni Jesi, and averaging 17.5 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game on 56% shooting. He did also however average 4.1 turnovers per game, a frankly huge amount that's tough to reconcile. Griffin is long, lean, athletic and a ferocious dunker, but seems to be more Doug Thomas than Malcolm Thomas at this point.

Eric Griffin

The extremely athletic Griffin is back once again after a fine summer league performance with the Dallas Mavericks last season that led to a training camp contract with the team. And although he didn't quite make it out of camp, a fine season with the Mavericks' affiliate Texas saw him average 19.0 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game in 35 minutes a contest. Although Griffin seems to become a less and less interested rebounder with each passing season despite his physical tools, he continues to improve as a shooter, last year knocking down 98 three pointers at a 36.8% mark. That plus 2.4 blocks per game is quite the combination, and Griffin has a legitimate chance of making the NBA next year, including behind his namesake Blake.
