Summary:
Alan Griffin is an athletic, high-motor combo guard that had a solid junior season at Syracuse this year, and he made an immediate impact after transferring from Illinois.  He helped lead Syracuse to get to the 2021 NCAA Tournament.  He will need to show NBA teams that he can effectively defend in a man-to-man scheme, and the adjustment from going from a zone to a man-to-man scheme may be a significant one.  Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2021 draft.
