The Clippers have signed G Tyrone Wallace.

The terms of the deal have not yet been released, but this is likely just a camp invite for the No. 60 overall pick from the 2016 NBA draft. The Clippers have plenty of depth at the point guard position, so Wallace will more than likely spend most of the 2017-18 season with Los Angeles' G-League affiliate.

DeAndre Jordan said it's "impossible" for the Clippers to replace Chris Paul's playmaking, but believes Patrick Beverley and Milos Teodosic will keep the team afloat.

"Those guys are going to come in and play their style of basketball, and it's going to be fun," Jordan said. The loss of Paul won't be easy for Jordan, as his net rating with CP3 on the floor was 16.7 compared to -4.4 with him off. He was also the recipient of countless lobs, helping him post the best field goal percentage (71.4 percent) in the NBA last season. Teodosic is a world class passer, so hopefully he'll develop some nice chemistry with DJ. He's still an early-round target if you're planning to punt free throws, as he's elite in FG percentage, rebounds and blocks.

Jeff Ayres has signed a contract to play for Eskisehir Basket in Turkey next season.

Ayres was a D-League All-Star back in 2015-16 and spent time in Russia, Japan and the D-League last season. It doesn't appear he will make his way back to the NBA anytime soon.

Willie Reed's wife, Jasmine Reed, issued a statement on Wednesday saying that she will not press charges against her husband after he was arrested on domestic-violence charges on Sunday.

"This incident has been totally blown out of proportion. I did not call the police and I did not ask anyone to call the police on my behalf," said Mrs. Reed. "Willie is a good man and a great father. I have no intention of pressing charges and I have asked the authorities to immediately dismiss all charges against Willie. This is a private matter between my husband and I and for the sake of our family I would like to keep it that way."

Willie Reed's arraignment hearing in his domestic battery case has been scheduled for September 8th.

Reed was jailed over the weekend and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. The accusations made against Reed by his wife are incredibly troublesome. If found guilty, Reed will likely be facing a lengthy suspension. It's also possible that the Clippers choose to cut ties with him altogether. The arraignment hearing is just three weeks before the start of the Clippers training camp.

Willie Reed was released from jail on Sunday afternoon after his $1,500 bond was posted.

He's still in a world of trouble and has been charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. Reed's wife said that Willie grabbed her "by the shirt, hair, wrist and arm" after telling him she wanted a divorce and that she was also thrown to the ground -- she had red marks on her left wrist, right bicep, the right side of her chest and her back and swelling on her left foot. To make matters worse, their son was present during the incident. The Clippers said they are aware of the situation and are working with the NBA to "determine the facts around the situation." A court date has been set for Sept. 8.

Willie Reed was jailed on Sunday morning on a domestic violence charge.

Specifically, he was charged with misdemeanor battery and is still in jail according to the Miami Herald. Details of the alleged crime are not available yet, and all we know right now is that he was arrested in downtown Miami. We'll be on the lookout for more information throughout the day.

Danilo Gallinari (thumb) is expected back on the court in 4-6 weeks.

The original timeline had him out 3-4 weeks, so he'll likely miss that and should still be ready for action in September. Gallinari fractured his thumb in an exhibition for Italy and he will miss EuroBasket this month. Unless he has a setback, he should be all set to start camp for his third NBA team. Durability concerns make The Rooster a mid-round target in most leagues.

Doc Rivers will remain as the Clippers head coach, but will no longer serve as president of basketball operations, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Rivers had served as president and coach since 2013. Lawrence Frank will now oversee basketball operations, including the general manager. Wojnarowski reports that both Frank and Rivers will report directly to owner Steve Ballmer and that both men "enjoy a strong personal and professional relationship, which has allowed for them to cement a shared vision on the franchise's future."

The Clippers will examine the MRI taken on Danilo Gallinari's fractured right thumb on Monday according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reported on Sunday evening that Gallinari's timetable is 3-4 weeks, but we should have an official update from the Clippers in a day or two. With training camp slated for late September, there's no reason to think that Gallo won't be 100 percent.

Danilo Gallinari (fractured right thumb) is expected to sidelined for 3-4 weeks according to Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times.

It was reported on Sunday that he would be out closer to five weeks, but Turner adds that the Clippers will know more once they talk with the Italian basketball federation’s medical staff. Either way, a Clippers official said Gallinari's status for training camp isn't in doubt. Gallinari flirted with top-40 value in standard leagues last season, but he usually slides in drafts because he's averaged just 57.8 games played over the past five seasons.
Jul 31 - 9:36 AM

Danilo Gallinari has been diagnosed with a fractured right thumb and he will miss the rest of the 2017 EuroBasket tournament.

Gallinari fractured the first metacarpal on his right (shooting) hand after punching an opponent in the face during Sunday's exhibition matchup between Italy and the Netherlands, and he's been given a 5-6 week timetable. This shouldn't be anything that impacts his status for training camp, but it does highlight Gallinari's propensity to find various ways to hit the sidelines.
Jul 30 - 6:21 PM

Danilo Gallinari went to the hospital for a medical evaluation after punching an opponent in the face during a friendly EuroBasket game.

It sounds like there's a chance Gallinari fractured his right hand, in which case, he'd obviously be done for the rest of the EuroBasket tournament. We should have official word from Team Italy soon enough, but even if he did mess up his hand, he still has plenty of time to get ready for the 2017-18 season.

Clippers sign G Sindarius Thornwell.

It's reportedly a three-year, $3.8 million deal with the first two years fully guaranteed. Thornwell was the SEC Player of the Year with his 21.4 points per game, and he did have some bright spots in summer league as a scorer. He's still going to be spending most of his time with the Clippers new G League team.

Blake Griffin (toe surgery) said he's met with five foot specialists this summer and they believe that being fully cleared for training camp is a "realistic possibility."

Griffin added that he's hoping to get back on the floor for non-contact work in the next few weeks, so he appears to be trending in a very positive direction following his May 1 surgery. There was a report in late-June speculating that Griffin might not be ready for the start of the season and that he could be out until December, but Ramona Shelburne of ESPN refuted that story, and it seems that the five foot specialists that met with Griffin are in agreement with Ramona's sources.
