Blake Griffin said he knew about Donald Sterling's racism before being selected by the Clippers, but he and the owner had little interaction.

Griffin discussed how he googled Sterling after the Clippers won the NBA Draft Lottery and "Donald Sterling racist" popped up first. He then read a bunch about Sterling, which wasn't exactly a secret in the NBA world. As for Griffin on the basketball court, he had his best season as a pro in 2013-14 and could flirt with first-round value if he's able to continue to improve at the free throw line.

The Clippers invited Jared Cunningham to training camp.

He was with the Kings last season and on their championship Las Vegas Summer League roster, averaging 6.8 points, 1.2 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.4 steals. He'll have a tough time making the LAC roster.

DeAndre Liggins will not be with the Clippers for training camp.

He played one minute with the Heat last season, but it was quite a minute. Liggins made his only shot and grabbed an offensive rebound, which explains his NBA-leading 233.3 offensive rating (no minimum). Obviously, teams are not sold on that sample size.

Miroslav Raduljica is signing to play in China with Shandong this season.

He was in the news this week for saying he has a better beard than James Harden, but we won't be seeing it in the NBA this season. Raduljica had a strong FIBA World Cup with Serbia and will probably be one of the better big men in the Chinese league.

Clippers sign F Joe Ingles.

Ingles' deal is a guaranteed minimum deal worth $507,336 and he will join a crowded Clippers' rotation after enjoying a successful FIBA World Cup of Basketball. While Ingles is worth a look in extremely deep dynasty leagues, fantasy owners in standard leagues can feel free to leave Ingles off their 2014-15 draft boards.
Sep 16 - 1:36 PM

Australian G/F Joe Ingles is set to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

Ingles drew interest from several NBA teams after averaging 11.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 3.4 assists during five games at the FIBA World Cup of Basketball and will now land with Doc Rivers' Clippers. The 26-year-old had a moderately successful 2013-14 season with Maccabi Tel Aviv, but will be hard-pressed to find enough minutes on the Clippers to be relevant in standard fantasy leagues.

Miroslav Raduljica said his beard is better than James Harden's after Serbia's loss to Team USA on Sunday.

He played very well in the World Cup with 13 points per game, but he's expected to sign overseas. The Clippers waived Raduljica last month after being acquired from the Bucks in the Jared Dudley trade.
Sep 15 - 10:31 AM

Miroslav Raduljica has received interest from Real Madrid.

The Clippers waived him after acquiring him in the Jared Dudley last month. Raduljica did play 9.7 minutes per game and started two contests with the Bucks last season, but that's primarily because the team was in disarray.
Sep 13 - 10:11 PM

Clippers sign G/F Hedo Turkoglu.

It's expected to be a one-year deal and it will bring the Clippers to 14 on their roster. Turkoglu wasn't very effective with the team last year, but he could get minutes with the team dumping Jared Dudley's contract.

An attorney for former Clippers owner Donald Sterling suggested that the departure of Hawks owner Bruce Levenson due to a racially-insensitive email is "just the beginning."

The lawyer, Bobby Samini, went on to say: "There's not a single owner in the league who doesn't have an email, a conversation, a conference-call comment, that by this standard that's been established by [NBA Commissioner] Adam Silver, wouldn't completely taint them." Sterling has employed a team of investigators and lawyers to dig up dirt on other NBA executives and owners, and they're still "very active" according to Samini, so unfortunately this story may not end with Sterling, Levenson and embattled Hawks GM Danny Ferry.

Chris Douglas-Roberts' contract with the Clippers is fully guaranteed for the 2014-15 season.

The Clippers have 13 players with guaranteed deals, including CDR and Ekpe Udoh, so it seems they'll keep both guys on their regular-season roster. Douglas-Roberts filled in admirably after joining the Bobcats last year, averaging 6.9 points, 1.0 threes, 2.4 rebounds and 0.6 steals in 20 minutes per game, but he may not even crack Doc Rivers' rotation in L.A.
Sep 7 - 7:52 PM

Clippers sign G/F Chris Douglas-Roberts.

The Hornets didn't need another wing, so CDR heads west. Douglas-Roberts won't be making the rotation because the Clippers aren't short on wings either, but he's a candidate to make the roster.
Sep 3 - 7:52 PM

The Clippers have reportedly signed Ekpe Udoh to a one-year, $1 million contract.

Udoh should make the regular-season roster given L.A.'s relative lack of frontcourt depth. In addition to starters DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin, they have Spencer Hawes, Glen Davis and now Udoh. He provides interior defense and rebounding, but won't get enough playing time to make a fantasy impact.
Sep 3 - 1:19 PM

Australian G/F Joe Ingles has reportedly drawn interest from the Grizzlies and other NBA teams.

Ingles averaged a modest 6.4 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.9 assists with Maccabi Tel Aviv last season, but he did it in just 22 minutes per game. He has reliable 3-point range and should be able to earn a training camp invite, but making the final roster is a much stiffer challenge.
Sep 3 - 9:54 AM

Serbian C Miroslav Raduljica is an unrestricted free agent after officially clearing waivers this weekend.

Raduljica is having a terrific FIBA World Cup, which may renew interest in him around the NBA, but it's not a good sign that his $1.5 million salary wasn't claimed off waivers.
