Earlier today, head coach Doc Rivers told reporters, including Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times (on Twitter) that he’d probably sign someone to a 10-day deal, adding that it might even be a guard. Rivers doubted that something would get done before Monday night’s game against the Mavs.
“We may even bring a guard in and just go small. We just need another player for sure… I doubt we could have it by tomorrow,” Rivers said, according to Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles.com (on Twitter).
The Clippers have two games left before the All-Star break, but 10-day contracts must cover a minimum of three games, so if the Clips make a 10-day signing before Wednesday’s first half finale, it’d run more than 10 days. It was widely expected that the Clippers would sign a big man following Blake Griffin‘s injury, but Rivers apparently isn’t afraid to go small.
In 16 games for the Thunder earlier this year, Telfair averaged 8.4 PPG, 2.8 APG, and 1.9 RPG in 20.4 minutes per contest. After he was let go by OKC, Telfair signed on in China.
