The Bobcats waived forward Taylor Griffin on Friday.
Known as Blake Griffin's brother for the most part, Taylor has enough athleticism and notoriety to get another shot somewhere down the road. He could also opt for Europe after playing in Belgium last season. Fri, Dec 23, 2011 11:27:00 PM

Former Suns F Taylor Griffin is focusing on making it back to the NBA as a perimeter player.

Taylor isn't blessed with the same body, skills or athleticism as his brother Blake. He's working with a professional shooting instructor this offseason after playing in Belgium last season. On the bright side for Taylor, he's set to marry model Marieka Willis.

Less than a week after being waived by the Suns, forward Taylor Griffin has signed with the European team Belgacom Liege.

Griffin didn't have a chance to crack an NBA team's rotation, even if he could have latched on for a minimum deal. Perhaps we'll see him again stateside after his game matures overseas.

The Suns brought up Taylor Griffin from the D-League on Wednesday.

Things were going so well with the little brother of Brook Lopez, they decided to give Blake's brother a chance as well.

The Suns have recalled rookie Taylor Griffin from the NBA D-League.

The Suns assigned the 6-foot-7 Griffin to the Iowa Energy on Dec. 7. He played in two games with the Energy, averaging 13.5 points, eight rebounds, four assists and four steals. He is not expected to have much, if any, fantasy value this year.

The Suns sent rookie big man Taylor Griffin to the D-League on Monday.

He wasn't getting minutes in Phoenix so he'll at least get a chance to play now.
Mon, Dec 7, 2009 04:51:00 PM

Suns rookie Taylor Griffin started on Monday but had just four points, three rebounds and three fouls in 18 minutes.

The Suns frontcourt is shallow, but not nearly shallow enough for the lesser Griffin to have fantasy relevance. And he didn't help his case with this lackluster performance.
Mon, Oct 12, 2009 11:06:00 PM

The Suns signed second-round draft pick Taylor Griffin on Monday to what is likely a non-guaranteed minimum contract.

The lesser-known Griffin brother averaged 6.2 points and 3.0 rebounds during Summer League, and doesn't warrant consideration in fantasy drafts.

The Suns took Oklahoma forward and brother of Blake, Taylor Griffin with the No. 48 pick in the draft.

This Griffin went higher than expected, so don't look for him to do much with the Suns in his rookie season.
