FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Mavericks announced today that they have signed free agent forward Eric Griffin.

Cut last year at this time by the Heat, Griffin put on a nice show playing in Puerto Rico instead of playing in the NBA or its D-League. This year, he's averaging 9.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in 19.3 minutes per game in the Summer League and is looking like a potentially dynamic option. The Mavs made sound investment here and Griffin should prove to be a string asset off the bench.ANALYST: Howard Bender
