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
Tigers are in discussions with Jordan Zimmermann.
There is nothing definite to this point, but reports have surfaced that Jordan Zimmermann is in "serious" discussions with the Tigers. Zimmermann would form a nice one-two punch with Justin Verlander atop the rotation in Detroit. Zimmermann was 13-10 in 2015 with a 3.66 ERA and 164 strikeouts in 201 2/3 innings pitched.
