He averaged a career-high 13.3 points per game for Syracuse last season.
The junior swingman was one of 353 early entry candidates for the 2021 NBA Draft. He chose to forgo his remaining NCAA eligibility by leaving his name in the talent pool past the July 7 withdrawal deadline.
Though there’s a possibility the 21-year-old two-guard may go undrafted next week, the six-five marksman is bound to find his way onto a Summer League roster and could earn a two-way contract.
Griffin averaged 13.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists per game during his lone season under head coach Jim Boeheim and played a vital part in the Orange making their first Sweet Sixteen appearance since 2018.
The Illinois transfer posted impressive defensive numbers in his final go-round in the collegiate ranks, recording career-highs of 1.2 steals and 1.6 blocks while committing just 1.9 personal fouls per game.
The 2021 NBA Draft will take place on July 29 at 7 PM CST at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. ESPN and ABC will televise the first round, and the second round will air exclusively on ESPN.
