Atlanta Hawks small forward AJ Griffin will be using his lack of playing time as motivation this summer (averaged 8.6 MPG during 2023-24).

(via Atlanta Hawks):

Reporter: “Were you maybe surprised about the lack of minutes that you were not able to get this season?”

Griffin: “Yeah, I definitely was. Of course it wasn’t something I went into expecting, and I think that motivates me to attack the summer, just build up my body, play a lot more, and show what I can do to earn those minutes.”
