Clippers Sign Second-Rounder Daniel Oturu

3:30pm: It’s a two-year, $2.4MM guaranteed contract, Greif adds in another tweet.


12:22 pm: The Clippers have officially signed second-round pick Daniel Oturu, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times tweets.

The Clippers have already reportedly filled their two two-way slots, so it’s safe to assume Oturu signed a standard contract. It’s likely Oturu received a starting salary at or near the first-year minimum of $898,310, though terms were not disclosed.

Oturu was selected with the 33rd overall pick. As a sophomore at Minnesota, the 6’10” Oturu averaged 20.1 PPG, 11.3 RPG and 2.5 BPG in 33.9 MPG. He was also named to the Big Ten All-Defense team.

    Oturu and Ibaka more than enough. To replace Harrell. He’s a big 4 plays both ways. Can definitely give them bench mins.

    I’m no Gopher fan, being I’m a Badger fan, but I like Oturu and think he’ll help the Knicks. Good defensively and if he keeps improving his shot and adds some weight, he should have a nice career.

      Gotta say I’ll be surprised if this helps the Knicks at all, but we will see how it plays out. You never know.
