Clippers sign guard Darius Morris to a 10-day contract

The Los Angeles Clippers announced today that they have signed guard Darius Morris to a 10-day contract.

Morris started the season with the Philadelphia 76ers where he averaged 6.9 points and 2.6 assists in 12 games before being waived on Nov. 20. The third-year player has career averages of 4.1 points, 1.6 assists and 1.1 rebounds in 79 games (17 starts) with the 76ers and the Los Angeles Lakers. A Los Angeles native, Morris was the 41st overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Lakers out of the University of Michigan.

The 6’4” point guard played two seasons for the Wolverines, earning third team All Big-Ten honors as a sophomore with averages of 15.0 points, 6.7 assists and 4.0 rebounds.

With Clippers start point guard Chris Paul out for up to six weeks, the Clippers were in need of some backcourt depth. If Morris performs well in games or even in practice, he could stick around longer.
