Default Clippers Re-Sign Brian Skinner

Quote:
The Los Angeles Clippers today re-signed unrestricted free agent forward Brian Skinner. Per team policy terms of the contract were not released.

In 51 games played with the Clippers last season, Skinner averaged 4.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 16.5 minutes per game. Over his 11 year NBA career, Skinner has tallied 4.8 points, 4.8 rebounds and 18.3 minutes per game.

On June 30th, the Clippers announced that Skinner had decided not to exercise his player contract option for the 2009-10 NBA season, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Skinner was originally drafted by the Clippers in the first round (22nd overall) of the 1998 NBA Draft.

Im a bit puzzled by this signing.. I was hoping that DeAndre would get most of the spare minutes..

But I guess judging by last season.. the Clipps need all the insurance they can get..

The Clippers frontcourt(c/pf) depth is looking very solid ie Camby, Kaman, Griffith, Jordan, Smith & Skinner.

All they need is a quality pg to back up BDavis(Carlos Arroyo?), Telfair may be able to do the job yet still, & mabey get rid of RDavis. The Clip's could be the surprise team in the West and battle for the 8th spot this upcoming season if they can gel as a unit in my mind.


PG BDavis (Arroyo) Telfair
SG Gordon RDavis Collins
SF Thorton Butler Novak
PF Griffin Skinner Smith
C Kaman Camby Jordan

Im really warming up to the idea of the Clippers in the playoffs, as extremely premature as that may be..

I really cant wait for the preseason to begin so that we can get a taste of what this team has to work with..

btw.. the whole report about the clippers making an offer to arroyo, was said by Dun to be a false report..

Yea, I guarantee you this is just for insurance purposes. He will not take away minutes away from Jordan. They just can't afford to take any risks after last years disaster.

I do hope thats the frame of thinking that they hold..

I dont know if people recall but when the Clippers drafted DeAndre he was projected to be taken higher and he dropped considerably. His potential was great but he was very raw...

So I hope that the Clippers can start working on his on court development, because he may turn out to be a very productive player...

Griffin, Gordon, and DeAndre seem like a great core for the future.. hopefully not too distand future..
