We've previously discussed that wacky Eddie Griffin here and here, and when last we discussed him he'd just crashed his luxury SUV into a parked Suburban while he was drunk, masturbating and watching porn on a TV in his SUV.

You really can't make this stuff up.

Anyway-- this time, he's been suspended by the NBA for five games for violating the anti-drug program, and it's been speculated that this will mark the end of his tenure with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

You know, a guy with his reputation, one must think that he'd fit in perfectly with the Portland Trail Blazers. (Not that, being a Pacers fan, I have much room to talk as of late.)

But, seriously... anyone wanna break out the Big Book of Eddie Griffin Jokes? Or at least speculate as to whether this marks the end of his T'Wolves tenure, the end of his NBA career, or at the very least some darn good material for Conan O'Brien? (Though after crashing his car while drunk and masturbating, I'm not sure just how he could top that.)

I think Garnett wants them to make a run at Chris Webber, so they could cut Griffin to free up some cash.

Does he take up that much cap room? I'd think he'd probably be playing around the minimum. Then again, it's not like the Timberwolves need a reason to cut him or anything...

Ekedolphin's article says he signed a 3 year, 8.1 million contract. I don't know enough about the NBA to know if that's worth cutting to make cap room for or not.

Talk is Webber would sign with whoever for the Veteran Minimum wage, which is around $1 mil. If they ditched Griffin, it might be to free up a roster spot, rather than cap space/cash.
