Clippers sign Azubuike to offer sheet
LOS ANGELES (AP)—The Los Angeles Clippers continued their busy offseason Thursday, signing restricted free agent swing man Kelenna Azubuike to an offer sheet.
Terms were not announced.
The 24-year-old Azubuike, who played at Kentucky, averaged 8.5 points and 21.4 minutes while playing 81 games for the Golden State Warriors last season. The Warriors have seven days to match once they receive a copy.
Azubuike, who averaged 8.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.8 assists in two seasons with the Warriors, would join former teammate Baron Davis with the Clippers. Davis signed a five-year, $65 million contract earlier this month.
Former Clippers stars Elton Brand and Corey Maggette have gone elsewhere— Brand signing with the Philadelphia 76ers and Maggette with the Warriors. The Clippers acquired center Marcus Camby from Denver earlier this week.
