The Clippers have officially released undrafted rookie Brandon Davies, the team announced today in a press release. Davies’ contract had included a partial guarantee worth $50K, so the team will be on the hook for that amount, unless he’s claimed on waivers.
Davies, a 21-year-old power forward, played four seasons at BYU, averaging 17.7 PPG and 8.0 RPG in 36 contests during his senior year. He was picked up by the Clips shortly after this June’s draft, playing for the club’s Summer League squad and appearing in five preseason games.
With Davies no longer on the roster, the Clips are down to 15 players, meaning they won’t necessarily have to cut anyone else before opening night. Maalik Wayns‘ knee injury will likely ensure that he remains on the roster, as we explained last week. Louis Amundson is the only other Clipper on a non-guaranteed contract.
