There will be much more about this in the days ahead, but I heard today that troubled former Houston Rocket/New Jersey Nets/Minnesota T-Wolves forward Eddie Griffin died last Friday. Just spoke to someone else who told me the body was identified by police today.

I’ve heard a few stories about exactly how it happened but couldn’t confirm anything.

Most recently he was working out in Houston with Hawks forward Josh Smith.

Eddie Griffin was 25 years old.
