Clippers Add Front-Court Depth

The Clippers have signed 6’8 forward Reggie Evans for the league-determined veteran minimum ($1,272,279, as determined by his 9 years of play). In 30 games last season, Evans averaged 11.5 rebounds. The Iowa alum and 9-year veteran will add much-needed frontcourt depth off the bench to the team. Hopefully he will also become the player the Clippers need to protect Blake Griffin from getting unnecessarily hard fouls. Clippers fans may remember Evans from grabbing Chris Kaman’s “private area.” By signing Reggie Evans, the Clippers may be sending a message to the league: “if you mess with Blake, you may get Reggied.”
