The Dallas Mavericks signed high-flying forward Eric Griffin to a nonguaranteed one-year contract Friday.
The 6-foot-8, 194-pound Griffin averaged 9.8 points in 19.3 minutes during four games with the Mavs’ team in the Las Vegas Summer League. He had several highlight-worthy slam dunks during the summer league.
Griffin has played professionally in Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Italy in addition to spending the 2013 preseason with the Miami Heat. If he does not make the Dallas roster, Griffin’s D-League rights will be owned by the Mavs affiliate Texas Legends.
The Mavs still have their $2.7 million cap-room exception and a minimum-salary slot available to fill out their roster.
