In their effort to acquire a center corps composed exclusively of former Denver Nuggets, the Clippers acquired 7-foot-1 Senegalese center Cheikh Samb from Denver on Monday for a conditional second-round draft pick.
Samb was drafted by the Lakers in the second round of the 2006 Draft — 17 picks after Paul Davis. He was immediately traded to Detroit, from whom he was loaned back to WTC Cornellá, his former team in Spain.
He played in four games for Detroit last season before being sent to the D-League. He was the forgotten piece in the Billups-Iverson deal back in November. He’s been with Colorado 14ers, where he’s averaged 12.4 points, 7.1 rebounds, 3.8 blocks in 25 minutes/game.
So far as my previous conclusion about DeAndre Jordan benefiting from the day’s transactions…you can nix that.
