2:53pm: Shams Charania of RealGM has it as a three-year contract, so if that’s the case, the Mavs used a portion of the meager cap room they had left, leaving their $2.732MM room exception untouched, since room exception deals can run no longer than two seasons.
TUESDAY, 2:01pm: It’s a non-guaranteed one-year deal, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com (Twitter link).
1:47pm: The Mavs have signed Eric Griffin, the team announced via press release. Keith Schlosser of Ridiculous Upside reported earlier this week that Dallas had offered the swingman a partially guaranteed deal. The 24-year-old Griffin, who’s yet to make his official NBA debut, has been playing for the Mavs in summer league this week. The amount of his partial guarantee isn’t clear, but he’ll likely receive no more than the minimum salary if he sticks with the team.
It’s the third straight summer that Griffin has taken part in NBA summer league play after going undrafted out of Campbell in 2012. He joined the Heat for training camp this past fall, and spent time playing overseas in Venezuela and Puerto Rico this past season.
Griffin averaged 9.3 points and 2.8 rebounds in 19.1 minutes per game this week for the summer Mavs. He used his 6’8″ height to control the boards in college, grabbing 8.7 RPG in 30.3 MPG during his senior year.
