Eric Griffin received 60% of the 380 votes in round 3, and is considered the 14th most (or 3rd least) valuable player on the Utah Jazz roster. This isn’t too surprising, considering he signed the franchise’s first ever two-way contract after solid summer league play.
Griffin bounced around a little bit in college, and has so far in the NBA as well. He’s played on several summer league rosters and is probably hoping for some stability with his new deal.
He’ll spend most of his time with the Salt Lake City Stars, but is allowed to be with the Jazz for up to 45 days during the season. Some hope he may become Dennis Lindsey’s newest project-turned-contributor, ala Joe Ingles. He certainly has some great athleticism and played solid D during the summer league, so we’ll see what happens from here.
That’s a pretty optimistic hope, but finding diamonds in the rough like that is a great way for a small market team to narrow the gap. It will be fun to track him on the Stars and watch if he can see some minutes on the main roster.
Up next is the 4th least valuable, or 13th most valuable, depending on how you look at it. Get those votes in!
