Clippers Sign Marcus Williams, Waive Aaron Williams

Press Release -
The Los Angeles Clippers today signed free agent forward Marcus E. Williams from the Austin Toros of the NBA Development League for the remainder of the season and waived forward Aaron Williams. Marcus Williams is the 23rd Gatorade Call-up from the NBA Development League this season.

Selected in the second round of the 2007 NBA Draft by the San Antonio Spurs , Marcus Williams appeared in seven preseason games with the Spurs and averaged 3.3 points and 2.6 rebounds before being waived on Oct. 27 and joining the Toros. The former University of Arizona standout re-signed with the Spurs on Dec. 26 and played in one game before being waived on Dec. 29. [READ]

Wow. That's a dece signing. We have now signed 2 incredibly solid and legit rookies in the last couple of weeks. Both were early 2nd round picks and both could've gone first. I really like this signing and am very pleased. It doesn't mean much, but Williams has a ton of potential and could make some real noise in training camp next year and make the 08-09 team possibly.

Great signing. Marcus was someone I really enjoyed watching while he was @ 'Zona. He's pretty versatile, athletic and good defender. A real Dunleavy type player in my opinion. I think this means Thornton will get less time now, which is good because he is pretty damn hurt.

I think Williams will play more SG than SF, but you might be right. I also think part of the reason he was signed in the first place is that Williams was marked as out for tonights game, along with 4 other players. Not knowing when he'll be back, we can't risk having 6 or 7 players out, and since A-Will's contract runs out at the end of the year anyway, we can afford to clear his spot.

I agree though. as I stated, I love the signing.
