Multiple Teams Interested In Eric Griffin

The Jazz, Clippers and Celtics are all showing interest in a possible call up of Eric Griffin, sources tell Shams Charania of Griffin is currently playing for the Texas Legends, the D-League affiliate of the Mavs. Dallas signed the 24-year-old last summer but released him right before the season began. Griffin is averaging 17.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game in the D-League this season.

Utah currently has a full 15-man roster. With the exception of Jack Cooley, who signed his second 10-day contract today, all of the players are signed through at least the end of the season. Boston also has a full 15-man roster.

Los Angeles makes the most logical destination for the 6-foot-8 forward, as its wings are arguably its greatest area of weakness. The team currently has a 14-man roster, and is expecting to sign Jordan Hamilton for the rest of the season. Hamilton sprained his ankle on Sunday, the last day of his 10-day contract and Doc Rivers said that the injury won’t affect the team’s decision to retain him the rest of the way. Griffin is more likely to replace Nate Robinson, who isn’t signed through the season, although that is just my speculation.
