I just heard on ESPN radio the Stephen Jackson has just been waived. Does anyone have any info on this. Looks like Clippers will sign either Bynum or Hedo today.

The Clippers waived forward Stephen Jackson on Tuesday, the team announced.

That opens the door for the team to sign another player, because they have a 14-man roster.

The Clippers are looking at signing Maalik Wayns, whom they just released Sunday, to a 10-day contract, perhaps as soon as today, according to NBA officials who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

The Clippers also had interest in signing free-agent guard Sasha Vujacic to a 10-day contract, but have cooled on that idea for now, the officials said.

Also, the Clippers are leaning away from trying to sign center Andrew Bynum if he is waived by the Chicago Bulls, the executives said.

The Clippers reportedly feel that Bynum has too much baggage and too many issues from his days with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team that traded him to Chicago. Cleveland had told Bynum to stay away from the team until he was traded.

Jackson averaged just 1.7 points and played in just nine games after he was signed by the Clippers as a free agent Dec. 10. His contract would have become guaranteed Tuesday.

"He was really, really great," Coach Doc Rivers told reporters before Tuesday's practice. "It was more once Chris [Paul] went down [with a Grade 3 AC joint separation of his right shoulder] that we needed guards."

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers also suggested prior to Tuesday's practice that more moves could be in the works. "Once Chris [Paul] went down we needed guards and in my opinion, multiple guards," he said. "We've already signed one and we'll probably sign another here in the next day. It's just what we had....

Redick gets back in a few days, why the hell do we need more guards? We don't have a single contributing big off the bench and we have unending veteran guards/wings. I don't get it.

Not a fan of Darius Morris, maybe swap him out in a week but we don't need yet another PG on a 10-day.

Bynum makes the most sense.... Baggage or not.... Even NBAtv said he makes sense for Clippers because of what Doc can turn him into.

People have been saying the same thing about the spurs for past 5-6 years lol. They're one of the few NBA teams that actually truly plays like a team. Spurs are never done as long as Pop sticks around.
