Player News - Clippers

Date: Team: Pos:

The Clippers cruised past the Thunder on Tuesday, led by C.J. Wilcox's 22 points, four 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists and one block.

Wilcox shot 7-of-17 from the field while making all four of his free throw attempts and he's obviously been given the green-light offensively during Summer League. The bad news is that he's shooting a combined 16-of-42 through three games (38.1 percent) against inferior competition. He's not guaranteed a spot on L.A.'s roster this season.

Unrestricted free agent Wes Johnson is reportedly finalizing a deal that will land him with the Clippers.

Johnson will play backup minutes to Paul Pierce in Los Angeles, but as long as Pierce is healthy, Johnson won't have much fantasy value in standard leagues.

J.J. Redick said in a recent interview that he would give the Clippers' offseason moves an F after they lost DeAndre Jordan via free agency.

The Clippers have a major hole to fill with the loss of Jordan, and with the big name free agent centers already off the board, it's going to be extremely difficult to replace what Jordan brought on a nightly basis. So far, the Clippers have added Paul Pierce, who is a crafty veteran but clearly towards the end of his career and no longer capable of carrying a team, while losing one of their stars in Jordan, so the F grade from Redick isn't exactly inaccurate.

The Heat are also in the mix to try and trade for Jamal Crawford.

There is no information regarding what the Heat will give up in the deal. The Cavs are going to offer Brendan Haywood's contract, which will allow the Clippers to potentially sign someone else because Haywood's contract isn't guaranteed.
Jul 6 - 6:37 PM

The Cavs are looking to make a trade to acquire Jamal Crawford.

It would be for Brendan Haywood's contract and the Cavs are also trying to get a deal going for Joe Johnson. Crawford would be a great fit with the Cavs to help give them some shooting as well as a ball-handler in their second unit. This news also solidifies the talk of J.R. Smith not coming back. Expect the Cavs to get one of the two deals done today or tomorrow.

Jordan Farmar has signed with Maccabi.

Farmar is familiar with the Israeli game and will once again head back overseas after failing to establish himself in the NBA upon returning. If healthy, Farmar could re-emerge on the NBA radar again before too long.
Jul 6 - 10:20 AM

Jordan Hamilton finished Sunday's loss to Detroit with two points (0-of-4 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), four rebounds, one assist, two turnovers and no defensive stats in 20 minutes.

He's starting for the Clippers during the Orlando Summer League, and is now averaging 6.5 points through two games. Hamilton has shot 40.5 percent from the field during his four-year NBA career and his 2015-16 salary is fully non-guaranteed.
Jul 5 - 2:54 PM

Royce White was a non-factor in eight minutes for the Clippers on Sunday, going scoreless with two rebounds, two turnovers and two personal fouls.

He was just as ineffective on Saturday and at this rate he won't be invited to a team's training camp, let alone earn a guaranteed contract.
Jul 5 - 2:50 PM

Second-round pick Branden Dawson looked like a bargain on Saturday against the Magic, scoring 14 points with 14 rebounds, one assist and four turnovers in 27 minutes.

He was awesome today and had a couple beautiful higlight-reel jams. The Clippers used $600K to buy the 56th pick off the Pelicans and didn't have a first-round pick (Doc Rivers trade), so Dawson could be one of the best players for them at summer league. He's a small forward and will have a very tough time getting minutes with the big club.
Jul 4 - 3:10 PM

Royce White missed one shot from the field and both from the line against the Magic on Saturday, adding two assists, two turnovers and no rebounds.

He looked to be in shape, but he just wasn't active on either end. White is going to have to improve to even get a training camp invite.
Jul 4 - 3:10 PM

Coach Doc Rivers, owner Steve Ballmer and president Gillian Zucker met with DeAndre Jordan.

There were no current players involved here. Rivers likely addressed the basketball side of the meeting with Ballmer and Zucker, the former president of business operations before the promotion, handling the non-basketball stuff. It'll come down to the Clippers or Mavs here. The loser on this deal will be in a bad spot.
Jul 2 - 9:57 PM

Austin Rivers said he hasn't ruled out a return to the Clippers, but wants to explore the free agent market.

"I plan on looking at all my options and making best decision for my career," Rivers said. "I’ll definitely consult my family they've always been extremely supportive. I do love playing for Clippers...just going to be patient and hear everyone out." Of course, Rivers' family is fairly connected with the Clippers as his father, Doc, is the team's head coach and president of basketball operations. We'll have to wait and see if there is a family reunion to be had here, but Rivers profiles as a backup wherever he signs and won't be worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 2 - 10:39 AM

Dahntay Jones has received interest from the Kings, Clippers and Knicks.

It'll be a for minimum deal. Jones didn't do much this season and his most newsworthy item of the season was bumping into Draymond Green during an interview. He's from New Jersey, so maybe that can actually help the Knicks sign someone.
Jul 1 - 10:55 PM

The Clippers have agreed to a three-year deal with Paul Pierce worth nearly $10.5 million.

It is going to be at the mini-mid level exception, which will help the Clippers to bring back DeAndre Jordan. The Clippers had some issues with their small forward last year and had to go small a lot, so this is a big move. Pierce is going to be 40 years old when this deal concludes, but the three years in this deal is just to help keep the cap number down.
Jul 1 - 7:09 PM

Coach Doc Rivers has reached out to unrestricted free agent Glen Davis.

Big Baby had a nice season as a backup big man and the Clippers will need him a bit more with Spencer Hawes in Charlotte. Obviously, they need DeAndre Jordan to start.
