Default John Lucas & Kim Hughes Won't Return, Also No Sofo

Also watching the team was former Interim Head Coach Kim Hughes and assistant John Lucas. Both indicated that they will not be back with the Clippers next season.

Absent was Sofoklis "Sofo" Schortsanitis who Olshey said was excused from the team to join the Greek National Team in preparation for this summer's World Games.

The Clippers have been holding on Sofo's draft rights since 2003. Unfortunately he struggled through four games in Las Vegas, averaging 2.5 points a game on 33.3% shooting. He didn't record an assist while turning the ball over 2.2 times a game.

At this time, the team is not planning to sign Schortsanitis to a contract for the upcoming season.

Sad to see Lucas and Hughes not returning, and the Sofo news surprises me. Won't be surprised if we can deal his rights for a 2nd round pick or something.
