Default Update: Curry Waived

Quote:


The Los Angeles Clippers today signed guard JamesOn Curry to a 10-day contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not announced.

A member of the NBA Development League’s Springfield Armor, Curry becomes the eighth Gatorade Call-Up of the 2009-10 season. The Clippers also announced that they have waived forward Kareem Rush.

With the Armor, the 6-foot-3 Curry averaged 16.1 points, 7.5 assists and 4.0 rebounds in 19 games this season. The former Oklahoma State standout was selected after his junior season by the Chicago Bulls in the second round of the 2007 NBA Draft. Curry did not appear in a regular season game for the Bulls, but was assigned to the D-League’s Iowa Energy and averaged 20.3 points, 5.5 assists and 3.2 rebounds in 13 games during the 2007-08 season.

Curry, 24, played in two games for Pau-Orthez of France before returning to Iowa and averaging 12.3 points in 16 games in 2008-09. Curry spent time with Proteas EKA AEL in Cyprus this season and joined the Armor in November, 2009.

A North Carolina native, Curry finished his career at Oklahoma State as the school’s 13th all-time leading scorer with 1,363 points and the third-most three-pointers in school history (197). As a junior, Curry was as Third Team All-Big 12 selection and finished second on the team in scoring.

Rush averaged 1.3 points, 0.9 rebounds and 0.6 assists in seven games with the Clippers in 2009-10. Rush suffered a torn right ACL on Nov. 17, 2009 in New Orleans and underwent season-ending surgery to repair the knee in November.

Good move.

Ill give Curry a chance. If he doesnt work out, lets bring back Livingston or Mike Taylor since Telfair is out 4-6 weeks.

Yup, was hoping we'd get him in the 2nd round but took Jared Jordan instead (well, Dan Dickau if you really think about it). 17/4/3 as a Junior on 45/41 shooting. If he can just give some effort on the defensive end and facilitate, I can see him sticking out for the rest of the year.

If not, after 10 days, since Bassy is still out, I'd like to bring back Shaun or Mike. Also wouldn't mind giving Will Conroy another go, or even Guillermo Diaz (we do need offense bad). Jared Jordan as well if we just want a guy to set the 2nd unit up.

"It's like a dream right now," Curry said.

"I maybe have a reputation of being a bad guy and whatnot, but you get to know me and be around me, you'll see I'm a family man with two kids and a fiancee who does everything for them and the Lord," he said. "I just pray each and every night to become a better person and for wisdom and understanding."

Quote:
The Clippers added the 24-year-old to provide depth after reserve point guard Sebastian Telfair was lost for at least a month because of a groin injury and shooting guard Eric Gordon sprained the big toe on his left foot. Gordon did not practice Saturday and Coach Mike Dunleavy said the second-year standout more than likely would not play today.

Curry can play both guard positions, but his proficiency at point guard this season with the Springfield (Mass.) Armor of the D-League made him an attractive option for the Clippers.

He was averaging 16.1 points and 7.5 assists, the latter figure ranking fourth-best in the league.

"I wasn't getting any publicity, but I was killing people down there," Curry said.

Liking his atitude.
