Griffin Off to NBA Summer League

Archbishop Stepinac High School graduate AJ Griffin is heading to Las Vegas with the Atlanta Hawks to compete in the NBA Summer League.

Griffin and the Hawks will be playing four games starting July 9 with the playoffs scheduled to begin July 16.

The Hawks will play the Utah Jazz on July 9 at 7:30 p.m.; New Orleans Pelicans on July 11 at 6 p.m.; Miami Heat on July 12 at 7 p.m.; and San Antonio Spurs on July 14 at 4 p.m. NBA TV will televise the first three games and ESPN 2 will have the final game.

Griffin was drafted 16th overall by the Hawks in the first round of the 2022 NBA Draft one week ago at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Griffin averaged 10.4 points and 3.9 rebounds per game in leading the Duke Blue Devils to the NCAA Division I Final Four during his one season at Durham, N.C. He shot 49.3 percent from the floor and 44.7 percent from three-point range.

Prior to Duke, Griffin helped Stepinac capture the 2018 state high school federation championship.
