Clippers sign first round draft pick C.J. WilcoxPosted by Inside Hoops
The Los Angeles Clippers announced today that they have signed first round draft pick C.J. Wilcox.
All first round draft picks are guaranteed to receive an NBA contract from the team that selected them, assuming they wish to come to the league immediately. This signing is standard and was expected.
Wilcox, the 28th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, was a Second-Team All-Pac-12 performer for the second-straight year during his final season at Washington. The 6-foot-5 inch Wilcox averaged 18.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 steals in 32 games as a senior for the Huskies, hitting 90 3-pointers, leading the Pac-12 in 3-pointers per game (2.8), good for 32nd nationally.
Wilcox, 23, was the Huskies leader in scoring, minutes played and 3-pointers made in 2013-14. His 18.5 points per game ranked fourth in the Pac-12 and he also finished second in the conference in free throw percentage (.868).
A star at Pleasant Grove High School in Utah, Wilcox finished his collegiate career with 301 3-pointers, the most in Washington history, sixth in Pac-12 history and appeared in 131 total NCAA games. In his four seasons at UW, he was one of just three players in Pac-12 history to post 1,800 points, 275 made 3-pointers and 400 rebounds.
