Griffin, who will visit the Pacers on Monday, averaged 10.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and one assist on 44.7% shooting from 3-point range last season. He was named to the ACC All-Freshman Team and ranked fifth in program history in 3-point percentage.

Meanwhile, Davis will work out on Tuesday with Indiana, which will be his fifth known meeting with a team ahead of the draft. He was a consensus first-team All-American after averaging 19.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 steals in 31 games last season.
