The Clippers have signed Bobby Simmons to a second 10-day contract, tweets Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times. Turner had reported earlier this week that the Clips expected to re-sign Simmons when his initial 10-day deal expired.
Simmons, who won the NBA's Most Improved Player award in 2004/05 with the Clippers, joined the team last Monday on a 10-day contract. In his six games for the Clippers, the 31-year-old has averaged 4.3 points and 2.8 rebounds in 18 minutes.
If the Clippers want to retain Simmons when his second 10-day expires, they'll have to guarantee his contract for the rest of the season.
