The Clippers have signed veteran Stephen Jackson. Added a poll- Clipper fans- do you like the signing? Do you think he can contribute right away?


Stephen Jackson has signed with the Los Angeles Clippers, a source has told RealGM.

Jackson has been a free agent since being released by the San Antonio Spurs last April.

The Clippers need depth on the wing with injuries to J.J. Redick and Matt Barnes.

I like it. Veteran with toughness.

Hopefully playing with Barnes helps

I love this signing. Stephen has a lot to prove and I bet when we face the Spurs in the Playoffs he'll be huge for us, great work by our FO.

Seems like he has something to prove (tweet) I don't think he liked being waived by pop very much. Can't wait to see him in action

He's had a couple of down years. Hopefully he worked his way back to being capt. Jack in the last few months. He's not bad when his 3 point shot is falling. He's a tough guy and he rebounds and moves the ball pretty well.

I thought you weren't allowed any 10 day contracts until after new year.

I seem to recall he was interviewed by the guys from First Take about the Spurs. Probably on video somewhere.

Meh, a 35 year old vet who's a below average shooter in both FG% and the 3Pt area. But can't expect much on this "short" of notice.

I'm not relying on Captain Jack to steer this Clippers ship to a championship, but I think he will be a great pickup.

He's the ideal small ball PF to insert next to Griffin at C when DJ gets in foul trouble.

Cool. Now he can tear Randolph's retina and break Cousins' hand. Only fair.

what if Reggie Evans somehow gets bought out. We might have a new goon squad with captain jack, barnes and evans

Man I want Evans back so badly. He's just languishing on BKN's bench right now.

Not a bad pick up at all. Hopefully he has something left in the tank

i really like this pick up, always been a fan of capt. jack's intensity. Him with Barnes will be good enforcers for the 2nd squad.

Probably won't play tonight, but he'll likely be available for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

I sure hope he has something left, because this team really needs it. Am curious to see how he fits when this team eventually becomes fully healthy.

On twitter it says he will join the team when the play in boston.

I read on twitter that it was a non guaranteed deal

It's ok i guess, i was kinda hoping for a young SG/SF slasher that attacks the rim with passion and rebounds. I am so tired of all our outside shots, it seems like that's all we look for.

Wier,the TV broadcast at 330 says it is a rumor,but I suppose they have to stick with that story.

trade will probably come when everyone is back which won't be for a long time.

Don't think he can be waived until he comes off the injuried list. Waiving him doesn't help except for opening up a rooster spot. We still have to pay him and we're so close to the hard cap. Need a trade of some kind in the near future if we want to bring someone else on board.

If we open up a roster spot, can we sign odom?

That is the silver linning. Dudley has been so bad that Stephen Jackson can very well turn out to be a good acquisition by comparison. At this point we are a sinking ship maybe Jackson can play well during this time and when all players are healthy he can take Dudleys minutes

s jack probably a pal of cp3 like others he has brought in. Most of those guys have been vets way past prime.

S jack been on 7 teams in 13 seasons and SA cut him during playoffs last year. That should SCREAM no.

keep in mind this isn't a permanent solution. We aren't searching for the wing player of the future. This is simply to address the loss of Redick, Barnes, and Bullock...all wing players. I'm sure once these guys are back Jackson becomes expendable, unless he plays well enough to bump someone out of the lineup that is, and if that happens then isn't it a good thing

Yeah, he is purely an emergency measure. We only have one available SF and he is playing really bad due to chronic injury, so it's get a body in quick time.

I'm loving this pick up! I've always been a fan of captain Jack. Don't be surprised if he steals Dudley's position as a starter.

solid pick up...he has some length at 6'8" and he a veteran and has toughness. The I see is where does he fit in when the team gets healthy?

Some people don't believe he has a chronic injury. Confused They just don't like him.
