Player News - Clippers

Date: Team: Pos:

If Glen Davis doesn't get a contract with an NBA team, he is open to playing overseas.

He's had conversations with the Clippers, but he likely would not get playing time considering their depth. The Bucks also have some interest in Big Baby, which would be a better landing spot for his fantasy value. If that happens, he's still nowhere near being worth drafting in almost any league.

Clippers waive G/F Jordan Hamilton.

There is just no room for him with the deep Clippers team. Hamilton was up and down in Orlando Summer League, but he would've had to play like a superstar to stay on the team. Expect him to get a camp invite with another team.

Chris Paul is expected to be in Vegas for Team USA's camp.

The point guard position is loaded for Team USA, but Paul shouldn't have any problems making the final roster for the 2016 Rio Olympics. The Clippers miraculously brought back DeAndre Jordan in free agency this summer and added some interesting pieces in Josh Smith and Paul Pierce, so it will be interesting to see if they will take a step forward next season. Paul averaged 19.1 points, 10.2 assists, 4.6 boards, 1.9 steals and 1.7 3-pointers and didn't miss a single game last season, so expect him to be an elite asset in fantasy leagues again next season.

Hedo Turkoglu wants to sign with the Kings.

He is at 997 career games and wants to get to 1,000. Vlade Divac is getting the band back together with Peja Stojakovic and Bobby Jackson in the front office, so it makes sense to add Hedo in that regard. It's still unknown if this group can be a winning basketball team in 2015.

The Clippers had conversations with Glen Davis this week, and there is still some optimism that a deal will get done.

The Clippers are pretty loaded right now, so Davis would be looking at a very limited role if he were to re-sign in Los Angeles. We will let you know if the talks progress, but there is no need to look in Davis' direction on draft day.

When asked what Josh Smith learned last season, he said he "learned what 'waived' meant."

It all worked out for Smith last season. The Pistons waived him last season, but he still received his money made it to the Western Conference Finals, and now he's with a talented Clippers team. "We did some special things in Houston but it was more of a visual, concrete type of situation-scenario for me here [in Los Angeles]," Smith said. He should receive most of his minutes at power forward, which means his fantasy value won't be high while Blake Griffin is healthy.

Matt Barnes said he's going to foul DeAndre Jordan when the Grizzlies face the Clippers.

"I told him, 'Even though we're good friends, I'm still going to foul the beep out of you when we play,'" Barnes said. "That's just the kind of player I am. There's no hard feelings." Barnes added he and his former teammates "can be friends until the cows come home," but "if you're not wearing the same jersey, I don't know you."

Lance Stephenson said he believes that the Clippers have all the right pieces to win a title.

Stephenson is probably referring to himself here, but all joking aside, it's nice to see that he is excited to have a fresh start in Los Angeles. "I’m very excited," Stephenson said. "I think we’ve got the pieces that can get us our ring. You’ve got coach [Doc] Rivers behind us. I think the sky’s the limit for us. We’ve got the talent, we’ve got the vets." Stephenson is expected to come off the bench for the Clippers, but after his disastrous 2014-15 campaign with the Hornets, he will be too risky to target in standard leagues.

Jamal Crawford is reportedly unhappy with his situation on the Clippers.

Crawford has sent some cryptic tweets as of late and the general thought is that he's unhappy with the absence of a contract extension. Asked on Twitter if he'd like to remain with the Clippers next season, Crawford responded, "I’m not a [free agent], wish, but I’m not ... So, [you] gotta ask Doc." Crawford has also been the subject of trade rumors so we may see him switch teams over the next few months, but for now, he'll be limited to providing fantasy owners with late-round value as he'll be part of a crowded Clippers rotation.

Ekpe Udo has signed with Fenerbache of Turkey.

Udoh played just 3.9 minutes per game with the Clippers last season, so he'll likely see a big minutes boost overseas. While there's also a chance that Udoh could end up in the NBA again, fantasy owners can move on from him for now.

Blake Griffin will attend Team USA's minicamp in August in the hopes of playing at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil.

Griffin was unable to play at the FIBA World Cup last year due to a back injury and missed the 2012 Summer Olympics in London because of his knee, so it's great that we will have the chance to watch him in Brazil next summer. Griffin really took a step forward in the playoffs last season with averages of 25.5 points, 12.7 boards, 6.1 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals per game, so his owners will have plenty to be excited about heading into the new season.

Smush Parker is still looking to land another job playing basketball.

He has also been shooting cellphone commercials in Mongolia while also playing basketball there. The 34-year-old guard was in Las Vegas to tryout for the Korean Basketball League. Parker also said playing in Mongolia was "the worst basketball experience ever." Well, apparently playing with Kobe Bryant isn't so bad after all.

Chris Paul will be the Team World captain for the NBA's Africa game on Aug. 1.

The other players on the Team World roster are: Bradley Beal, Kenneth Faried, Marc Gasol, Pau Gasol, Jeff Green, Evan Turner, Trey Burke and Nikola Vucevic. The roster is subject to change, of course. As for Paul, this will be the first chance we get to see him in the national spotlight since he tweeted "🍌🚤" on NBA emoji day.

Ekpe Udoh is reportedly a target of Fenerbahce in Turkey.

Udoh is expected to give an answer after he meets with a couple of unnamed NBA teams next week, so we will be watching this story closely. He saw just 3.9 minutes of action in 33 appearances for the Clippers last season, and he likely wouldn't have more than a limited role if he does stick around the NBA.

Wes Johnson said that he decided to sign with the Clippers this offseason, so he could join a winning team.

"I want a chance to win," Johnson said. "My track record through my career is I've been on teams, unfortunately, that have been bad. So, fortunately, I'm on the other side." Johnson will serve as one of Paul Pierce's backups with the Clippers, competing for reserve minutes with guys like Lance Stephenson and Jamal Crawford. He won't be worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues.
