The Los Angeles Clippers today signed veteran free agent swingman Ricky Davis to a multi-year contract, it was announced by Vice President of Basketball Operations Elgin Baylor. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not announced. Carrying career averages of 14.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 31.1 minutes, Davis tallied 13.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 82 games played for the Miami Heat during the 2007-08 season. The 6-foot-7-inch Iowa product also connected on 420-971 FG (.433), 135-333 3FG (.405) and 155-197 FT (.787) on the year. “We believe he will be a good addition,” Clippers Vice President of Basketball Operations Elgin Baylor said. “His versatility and ability to shoot from the outside will spread the floor and help our low post players.”

Not bad, not bad at all, Clippers are looking ok, not great but ok. That gives them Baron Davis, Ricky Davis, Mobley, Thomas, Thorton, Camby, Kaman and their new rookie Eric Gordon. That's not a great team, but it might be better than they were last year.

Solid signing. If you're a Clipper fan, you're probably still upset about the Brand thing, but you can't fault the Clippers for NOT trying. With the Davis move, Camby, drafting Eric Gordon, & now this, they are definitely heading in the right direction.

Still probably not good enough to make any severe noise, especially in the loaded west, but definitely playoff contenders I'd say.

Oh no. My friend saw him on Thursday and told him to sign with LA. I i guess Clipps come before us in his mind.

I also agree that this is a very good move for them, once again depending on how much he is going to get paid.

Interesting signing...Davis, Mobley, and the rookie they drafted Eric Gordon all play the SG position...only 48 minutes in a game

Gordon and Davis could play the point, but will turn the ball over at will

team still is missing something...his name rhymes with grand...

6th seed....BOOK IT

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

^ Barring no major injuries of course, I can see that.
