The Clippers signed G Jordan Farmar to a two-year, $4.2 million contract early on Thursday.

He'll be able to back up both guard spots and start when injuries require him to. He's a solid back up and sixth man candidate, especially if Jamal Crawford is involved in a sign-and-trade to play elsewhere this season.

The Clippers officially signed FA C Spencer Hawes to a four-year, $23 million contract early Thursday morning.

Hawes will be a very serviceable backup to DeAndre Jordan and is a worthy starter if DJ gets hurt. But serving as a backup will hurt his fantasy value next season.

Donald Sterling appeared in court on Tuesday as part of his fight to control the Clippers' franchise, but he was combative and erratic during an hour-long hearing.

He is claiming that his wife Shelly Sterling shouldn't have the power to unilaterally sell the Clippers, and that tests proving his mental incapacity should be invalidated. His performance in court didn't help his case, as he accused legendary lawyer Bert Fields of being a "smart ass" during questioning and exhorted him to "Stand up and be a man!" He also failed to answer any questions directly, but he'll be back on the stand when the probate trial continues on Wednesday.

Jordan Farmar and the Clippers have agreed to a two-year, $4.2 million contract, with the second season a player option.

L.A. lost Darren Collison in free agency and they did well to land a quality backup PG with their bi-annual exception. Farmar should take over most of Collison's 26 minutes per game. Although he played well for the Lakers last season, injuries limited Farmar to just 41 games played -- fantasy owners should view him as little more than a low-end source of 3-pointers and assists while Chris Paul is healthy.

The Clippers have included Jamal Crawford in "possible trade scenarios," according to Yahoo! Sports.

He's been linked to the Cavaliers in a possible sign-and-trade that would bring Luol Deng to L.A., but Deng is also being pursued by the Hawks, Heat and Mavericks. Wherever he's playing next season, Crawford hopes to earn more than his current $5.4 million salary. "Our intention is to get an extension with the Clippers or anywhere else that he may be traded, based on the fact that he's undervalued for the production he's providing," said his agent. The reigning Sixth-Man of the Year averaged 18.6 points last season, though he shot only 41.6 percent from the field.

The Trail Blazers reportedly offered Spencer Hawes the same exact contract (length and terms) he received from the LA Clippers.

It appears Hawes would prefer the spotlight of LA, to a smaller market in Portland. Hawes will serve as a backup in LA, and a repeat of last year's statistical performance cannot be expected while playing under DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin.

Spencer Hawes agreed to a four-year, $23 million deal with the Clippers on Friday.

The Clippers gave a ton of minutes to DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin last season, so they absolutely needed a big man. Glen Davis was basically their best backup big last season, so it makes sense to pay a little more than market value on Hawes. His fantasy value takes an enormous hit here and he's not worth drafting in standard leagues.

Donald Sterling filed a motion to have his trial with Shelly moved from probate court to federal court.

It's based primarily around how he feels his privacy rights have been violated by the release of his medical records. This story won't be going away any time soon, but the Clippers are still able to make moves on their roster. Although, they have lost out on several assistant coaches.

Spencer Hawes is visiting with the Suns on Thursday.

The Clippers are believed to be the favorites and want to use their mid-level exception on him. The Suns do have the second-most cap space in the league and could offer Hawes more money and also need a center, so it's really up to them on how they want to play it. The Blazers are also in the mix. Hawes would have the most fantasy value on the Suns.

The Los Angeles Clippers have had conversations with unrestricted free agent Jordan Farmar, according to sources.

This isn't close to a done deal as Farmar reportedly has interest from three or four other teams, but the Clippers have upped their pursuit of back up point guards now that Darren Collison has signed with the Sacramento Kings. The 27-year-old averaged 10.1 points, 1.7 three-pointers, 2.5 boards, 4.9 assists, and 0.9 steals in 41 games with the Lakers during the 2013-14 season and would give the Clippers a solid insurance policy for Chris Paul.
Jul 3 - 1:27 PM

Jamal Crawford is looking for a contract extension from the Clippers.

He would become a free agent at the end of the 2014-15 season and is in a good position to negotiate after winning Sixth Man of the Year. He's a great fit for the Clippers with his fourth-quarter scoring and high usage rate while Chris Paul is on the bench. In fact, Crawford's usage rate was 30.5 without CP3 on the court and just 23.1 with him. He will probably get what he wants.

Rookie SG C.J. Wilcox has a right shoulder injury that will prevent him from playing in Summer League.

The good news is that he won't require surgery, but the fact he'll miss Summer League could get his NBA career off to a slow start.
Jul 2 - 10:33 PM

Spencer Hawes met with the Clippers and Warriors on Tuesday, but he's reportedly "very interested" in signing with the Trail Blazers.

"He likes everything about the Blazers," a source told the Oregonian's Joe Freeman. The Blazers have also pursued Josh McRoberts in free agency, making no secret about their desire to add a big man with 3-point range. Channing Frye is another possible target, but the Blazers may not actively pursue him until Hawes is out of the running -- working against Portland is the fact that they can't offer more than $5.3 million annually over a four-year contract.

Donald Sterling will argue that the results of his mental health examination were compromised because the administering doctor went out for dinner and drinks with him.

"It was unclear at what point a medical examination ceased and a social interaction began," Sterling's lawyer wrote in a court document. The upcoming trial regarding the sale of the Clippers will initially focus on whether Shelly Sterling followed the provisions of the family trust when establishing Donald's mental competency, "and whether she has a responsibility to complete the sale after Donald Sterling revoked the trust on June 9." Although he wrote a letter of consent for his wife to sell the team on May 22, his lawyers now contend that it was not a "blanket authorization" allowing her to sell the team to Steve Ballmer. The Sterlings will begin a four-day trial on July 7.

Spencer Hawes has emerged as the Trail Blazers' top target in free agency.

Blazers' general manager Neil Olshey and coach Terry Stotts visited representatives for Hawes in Los Angeles late Monday night shortly after free agency began and the meeting "went very well", according to reports. The most that Portland can offer the unrestricted free agent is $5.3 million per year over four years, so Hawes would be taking a bit of a pay cut from the $6.5 million he earned last season if he signs with the Blazers. The 26-year-old averaged 13.2 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists last season and would continue to be a solid mid-level fantasy big man if he signs with Portland.
