Eric Griffin
Hapoel Galil Gilboa (National League) inked 26-year old American forward Eric Griffin (203-88kg-90, college: Campbell). He played most recently at Al Naser in UAE D1 league. He helped them to make it to the cup final. Griffin also spent pre-season at the Pistons in NBA that year.
He is a very experienced player. Griffin has quite traveled the world as his pro career brought him to six different countries on three different continents (Europe, Latin America and of course North America). Griffin has played previously professionally in Italy (Jesi), Puerto Rico (Leones), Venezuela (Guaros), NBA (Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat), Dominican Republic (Indios de San Francisco) and D-League (Texas Legends).
He attended Campbell University until 2012 and it will be his fifth season in pro basketball.
Griffin's game is described as: A slim forward, who is very athletic. Has impressive leaping ability and great timing for shot blocking end grabbing rebounds at both sides of the court. Played a great last season of college ball but all observers tell for him of a further upside, above all if he will be given playing time at professional level and if he will beef up a little.
Offensively, he is a great player in open court situations, but needs to add shooting range. Defensively, he's so quick and agile that he can guard all players from 2 to 5 positions
