Rashard Nathan Griffith (born October 8, 1974) is an American professional basketball player. Griffith, a native of Chicago, Illinois, starred for the nationally ranked King Jaguars of the Chicago Public League, where he was part of a "twin towers," as King, coached by Landon Cox, had 7'2" Thomas Hamilton and the 7'0" Griffith. King won a state championship in 1993, and after dominating the high school ranks and being named Illinois Mr. Basketball, Rashard joined the Wisconsin Badgers college basketball team. Griffith selected Wisconsin over several schools; including University of Illinois, against the advice of his mother. After his sophomore year, Griffith turned pro, though his entire professional career has been spent in international play, primarily in Turkey, Spain, and Italy. He was drafted 38th overall by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 1995 NBA Draft.

Pro career

A powerful center, Griffith earned a spot on the All-Euroleague Second team in the Euroleague 2000-01 season while playing for Kinder Bologna alongside Manu Ginóbili, Marko Jaric and Antoine Rigaudeau. Kinder Bologna won the Triple Crown in Basketball the same year. After his success in Europe, the Orlando Magic acquired Griffith's draft rights in a trade during the 2002 NBA Draft with the intent of adding him to their roster,[1][2] but to date Griffith has never played in the NBA.

Currently, Griffith plays for Romanian team CSU Asesoft Ploiesti.[3]
