The Clippers today waived forward Paul Davis and newly-signed guard Fred Jones.
Davis was the Clippers’ second round pick in the 2006 Draft. He played in 27 games, averaging 4.0 points and 2.5 rebounds in 11.5 minutes per game this season. Davis had a career night against Sacramento just a week ago, scoring 18 points.
Jones joined the team as a free agent last week. He averaged 8.3 ppg in four losses to Dallas, Sacramento, Philadelphia, and Phoenix. He left yesterday’s loss against Detroit early in the first quarter with a sprained right foot.
We have to assume this move is a precursor to something else. The immediate beneficiary? DeAndre Jordan, who saw 18 minutes in yesterday’s game.
