LA Clippers sign veteran swingman

Published Add your comment

The Los Angeles Clippers have completed the signing of swingman Stephen Jackson in a bid to help them through a difficult period of injuries.

Jackson -a 13-year-veteran of the NBA- and the Clippers reached an agreement last night which sees him added to their roster before the upcoming game against the Boston Celtics tonight.

The Clippers have experienced problems with injuries that have forced them to seek new options, having lost J.J. Redick, Matt Barnes and Reggie Bullock in recent weeks.

Though they sit atop of the Pacific division, the LA franchise know that they can ill-afford any more depletions to a squad which is already looking startlingly different to the one that started the season.

Jackson spent last year with the San Antonio, averaging 6.2 points and 2.8 rebounds. In signing him on the Clippers have become the eighth NBA franchise that the 38-yea-old has played for.
