Default Taylor Griffin a Globetrotter

PHOENIX - (Business Wire) The world-famous Harlem Globetrotters today selected University of Oklahoma senior forward Taylor Griffin as the top pick in the team’s third annual player draft, just days before his younger brother, and Sooners teammate, Blake Griffin is expected to become the number one overall selection of the upcoming NBA Draft on June 25.


Also chosen by the Globetrotters were 2009 College Slam Dunk Champion Tony Danridge of the University of New Mexico and Slam Dunk runner-up Charlie Coley, III of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte; 2009 Patriot League Player of the Year Derrick Mercer of American University; and Tim Howard, a former high school basketball standout and current number one goalkeeper of both the U.S. World Cup soccer team and Everton FC of England’s Premier League.

“Globetrotters must be great athletes, great entertainers and outstanding citizens,” said Globetrotters Coach Sweet Lou Dunbar. “We believe each of these individuals possess enough of those unique dynamics to merit our consideration to wear the red, white and blue.”

Following is a recap of the Globetrotters’ draft:

It is relative because we are probably going to make a move for him. It is rumored that Utah wants him for their 2nd round pick. I was hoping he would go undrafted and we could sign him to the summer league but now it looks like we are going to have make a trade for a 2nd round pick before the 50th pick. Dunleavy was questioned about Taylor in an interview and he really went around the question, so much he even said he does not think he could answer the question. Taylor Griffin fits the type of mold Dunleavy loves in player, he has a high basketball IQ, he is a good defender. he is very athletic(It is reported whe he worked out for Utah he had a standing vertical higher than any player at the cumbine 35"), he plays well with Blake, he has a close relationship with blake and he has the same agent as Blake. I would love to have this kid on our roster, much more than Alex Acker.
