Eric Griffin’s contract with the Dallas Mavericks is a three-year, non-guaranteed deal, league sources told RealGM.

Griffin is averaging 9.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and two blocks for the Mavericks’ summer league team this month, and he’s a high-level athlete and an increasingly skilled forward. At 6-foot-8, Griffin had arguably the best dunk of summer league: a one-handed slam over Shane Larkin.

Rockets May Have Accelerated Parsons' Payday As Unofficial Part Of Dwight's Deal

Many around the NBA widely suspect that an unofficial part of Dwight Howard signing with the Houston Rockets was for the team to accelerate the free agency of Chandler Parsons.

Howard and Parsons are both represented by Dan Fegan.

No one directly involved with the Parsons negotiations, however, would confirm it.

The Rockets could have picked up their team option on Parsons at under $1 million, but they declined it in order for him to become a restricted free agent this offseason instead of an unrestricted free agent in 2015.

Parsons signed a three-year, $46 million contract with the Dallas Mavericks that the Rockets would have matched if they had also signed Chris Bosh.

Parsons 'Offended' By Treatment From Rockets In Free Agency

Chandler Parsons joined the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday as the Houston Rockets declined to match his three-year, $46 million contract.

"Honestly, I was offended by the whole process," Parsons told Yahoo! Sports on Monday in a phone interview. "They publicly said that they were going out looking for a third star when I thought they had one right in front of them. I guess that's just how they viewed me as a player. I don't think I've scratched the surface of where I can be as a player and I think I'm ready for that role.

"You can't knock them for always trying to get better. [Houston general manager] Daryl Morey is very aggressive, is a genius, a great GM and I have nothing but respect for those guys. And they are looking to make their team better. That's what they were doing. I just thought I could be that guy that could do that."

The Rockets gave Parsons an opportunity to explore free agency as a restricted free agent by opting out of the final year of his deal that would've paid him $964,750.

The Rockets went after superstar free agents such as LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh.

"They really showed how much they cared for me," Parsons said. "They didn't want me to wait for Bosh. They didn't want me to wait for 'Melo. They came forward first."

The Rockets ultimately decided to sign Trevor Ariza to a three-year, $32 million contract.

"Throughout the whole process they pretty much told me they were going to match everything," Parsons said. "I understand it's a business. I understand they had to do what they thought was best for their organization. It definitely caught me off-guard a little bit."

Parsons said he has "nothing but respect" for his former club though.

"They gave me my first opportunity,” Parsons said. "They believed in me. They drafted me. I have nothing but love and respect for them. They will have a special place in my heart. The fans were unbelievable and I hope they have no hard feelings. I had to do what is best for my career."
