Clippers Rumors: Barbosa, Turkoglu, Roster

January 9 at 4:30pm CDT By Luke Adams

The Clippers currently have 13 guaranteed contracts on their books, but no open roster spots, since they’ve signed two players to 10-day deals. As our 10-day contract tracker shows, the pacts for Darius Morris and Maalik Wayns were finalized on Monday and Wednesday, respectively, meaning they’ll both expire by next weekend. It’s not clear yet whether the Clips have bigger plans for those final two roster spots, but there have been a few rumblings about possible options, so let’s round them up….

  • Before he signed a 10-day contract with the Suns, Leandro Barbosa also had the opportunity to sign with the Clippers, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. Presumably, signing Barbosa on a 10-day deal would have been an alternative to adding Morris or Wayns for the Clips.
  • Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times tweeted earlier this afternoon that Hedo Turkoglu had arrived at the Clippers’ practice facility to work out for the team. We heard on Monday that Turkoglu, having been waived by the Magic, would audition for the Clips.
  • In a piece for ESPN Los Angeles, Arash Markazi examined Turkoglu, Andrew Bynum, and Sasha Vujacic as possible targets for the Clippers, with Doc Rivers‘ thoughts on the club’s options.
