Eric Griffin Signs Three-Year Deal With Mavs

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

The Mavericks announced the free agent signing of Griffin on Friday.

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.

Griffin had gone to training camp with the Miami Heat last season and was a final roster cut. He then played in Puerto Rico and Venezuela.

Griffin, 24, averaged 15.7 points and 8.7 rebounds in his senior season at Campbell University.

Jannero Pargo Re-Signs With Hornets On One-Year Deal

Free agent guard Jannero Pargo will re-sign with the Charlotte Hornets on a fully guaranteed one-year, $1.45 million deal, a league source told RealGM.

Pargo has spent the past two seasons with Charlotte, joining the team on a 10-day contract in March of 2013. In 29 games last season, Pargo averaged 4.7 points and 1.8 assists.

A 10-year NBA veteran, Pargo is a reliable reserve for competing teams. The 34-year-old has averaged 6.4 points and 35.5 percent three-point shooting while playing with the Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Toronto Raptors, New Orleans Pelicans, Atlanta Hawks, Washington Wizards and Hornets.
