The Clippers and Hedo Turkoglu are reportedly nearing agreement on a one-year, $1.4 million contract.

Turkoglu hasn't posted an above-average Player Efficiency Rating since the 2007-08 season and he's been particularly dreadful since 2012, but coach Doc Rivers obviously thinks he can bounce back at age 35. He'll fill a small role off the Clippers' bench and fantasy owners are advised to shun him.

Free agent C Miroslav Raduljica led the Serbian national team with 21 points and seven rebounds during Sunday's one-point loss to France.

Raduljica's imposing size (7'0", 250 lbs.) makes him tough to guard in international competition, and he's averaging 17.0 points on 60.9 percent shooting through two World Cup games. The Clippers recently waived Raduljica after acquiring him from the Bucks, and it's unclear whether he'll sign with another NBA team or seek his fortunes overseas.

The Clippers officially waived C Miroslav Raduljica on Friday via the stretch provision.

The Clippers traded for Carlos Delfino and Miroslav Raduljica on Tuesday, and waived both guys on Friday to create cap space. The move will allow the organization to add four more guys to the roster (before this they could only add one) and they reportedly have their eyes on Ekpe Udoh. Whomever the Clippers decide to add, these will just be minimum-salary guys, and they shouldn't be expected to have any fantasy relevance.

The Clippers officially waived Carlos Delfino on Friday via the stretch provision.

Delfino lasted three days with the Clippers organization before being waived. The move will give the Clippers an additional $3.5 million in cap space to sign players to minimum deals. Chris Douglas-Roberts is reportedly on the Clippers' radar, and he would add emergency depth to the wings. If Douglas-Roberts lands in LA, it will take an injury for him to become fantasy relevant.

Miroslav Raduljica is expected to be waived by the Clippers.

He had two years left on his deal and the Clippers have no use for him now that they're armed with Spencer Hawes. Raduljica was really only traded so the Clippers could get Dudley's contract off their books. He could get picked up by another team, or may be going overseas.

Doc Rivers and the Clippers have agreed to a contract which will keep Rivers in L.A. through the end of the 2019 season.

Terms of the deal haven't been disclosed, but it's a new contract rather than an extension, and it would be surprising if Rivers isn't the highest-paid coach in the NBA. "This is an important day for this organization," said new owner Steve Ballmer. "Not only is Doc one of the best coaches and executives in the game, but he continually embodies the hard core, committed and resilient character and winning culture that the Clippers represent. It was one of my top priorities to ensure that he was firmly in place as the long-term leader of this team."

Carlos Delfino's surgically-repaired foot is not healing properly, and the Clippers may waive him via the "stretch provision."

Delfino would be a useful rotation player if healthy, but as things stand the Clippers can reduce his salary-cap amount over several years and thereby clear space for one or two minimum-salary free agents (Chris Douglas-Roberts and Ekpe Udoh have been mentioned as possible targets). Delfino has already had two surgeries on his foot and it sounds like his 2014-15 season is in jeopardy.

The Clippers acquired C Miroslav Raduljica from the Bucks on Tuesday.

Raduljica casts an imposing shadow at 7'1", 280 lbs., and he slots in as the Clips' third-string center behind DeAndre Jordan and Spencer Hawes. It would take a few injuries for him to emerge as a fantasy factor. Although he has three years remaining on his rookie contract, Miroslav's 2015-16 salary of $1.6 million is fully unguaranteed.
Aug 26 - 3:35 PM

Carlos Delfino was traded from the Bucks to the Clippers as part of Tuesday's three-player deal.

Delfino hasn't played since the 2012-13 season due to multiple foot surgeries, but he's tentatively expected to be ready for training camp. He'll give coach Doc Rivers another option at SG and SF if he stays healthy, but may have a hard time earning minutes in a wing rotation that includes J.J. Redick, Jamal Crawford, Matt Barnes and Reggie Bullock.

Newly-appointed Clippers owner Steve Ballmer has yet to talk about a contract extension with head coach and president of basketball operations Doc Rivers.

Rivers was considering resigning if the Sterlings kept control of the franchise, but Ballmer's purchase of the team should go a long way towards keeping Doc around for at least the next two years of his contract. "Everything I know about Doc, I'm just 100% behind," Ballmer said of Rivers. "I think he's phenomenal. I'm lucky he's got a contract that runs a little while longer, but we have plenty of time to talk and I look forward to doing that."
Aug 19 - 10:20 AM

Newly appointed Clippers owner Steve Ballmer reiterated on Monday that he intends to keep the Clippers in LA, and that no name change is on the horizon.

It wouldn't make a ton of sense to move the Clippers as a lot of the organizations value stems from the fact that they are placed in the highly visible market of Los Angeles. Ballmer will bring a welcome change to the Clippers' power structure.
Aug 18 - 3:19 PM

An appeals court has rejected Donald Sterling’s petition to halt the $2 billion sale of the Clippers to Steve Ballmer.

"The evidence before this court indicates the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers … has closed," the ruling from the state 2nd Court of Appeal said Wednesday. "Thus, there is nothing for this court to stay." In other words, it would appear that Donald Sterling's days of owning the team are over.

The NBA has countersued former Clippers owner Donald Sterling in federal court, seeking to recoup expenses related to their legal costs.

The league has poured legal resources into the removal of Sterling and the litigation of his $1 billion federal suit against the NBA. The sale of the Clippers was finalized on Tuesday but it's unclear whether Sterling will drop his suit -- if the competing suits are quickly resolved, we won't have to mention his name at any point during the regular season.
Aug 12 - 4:36 PM

Doc Rivers is expected to discuss a contract extension with new Clippers owner Steve Ballmer.

The departure of Donald Sterling is a relief for the entire NBA but it must be a particular blessing for Rivers, who had threatened to resign if Sterling remained in place next season. Rivers has two years remaining on his contract, at $7 million per season, and both sides appear eager to solidify Rivers' position for many years to come.
Aug 12 - 3:44 PM

The NBA has announced that the Clippers sale to Steve Ballmer is official.

And thus ends the Donald Sterling era in Los Angeles. After months of court cases and posturing, Sterling will hopefully fade off into the sunset as the Clippers officially belong to Steve Ballmer now. Most importantly of all, Doc Rivers and his team can focus on preparing for the 2014-15 regular season now that the soap opera is over.
