Clippers Looking At Marqus Blakely

The Clippers brought in 6'5" forward Marqus Blakely for a workout last week and are considering signing him, a source told Emiliano Carchia of Sportando. Blakely was in camp with the Clippers in 2010 and the Rockets last year, but has yet to make his official NBA debut. He split time last season between a pair of D-League teams as well as a club in the Philippines.

The undrafted University of Vermont product averaged 15.1 points, 6.4 rebounds and put up a PER of 19.3 over a combined 35 games with the D-League's Iowa Energy and Sioux Falls Skyforce last season. With B-Meg Llamados in the Philippines, he averaged 24.7 PPG and 13.2 RPG in 13 games.

If he signs with the Clippers, it would likely be a non-guaranteed, minimum-salary deal, but he would figure to stand a decent chance at making the roster, since the team only has 13 fully guaranteed contracts for 2012/13.
