Los Angeles Clippers are signing Marqus Blakely for the upcoming season, a source told Sportando. The forward spent last season in D-League with Iowa Energy and Sioux Falls SkyForce and finished in the Philippines with B-Meg Llamados with whom he averaged 22.4ppg, 13.4rpg, 3.3apg and 2.7bpg in 22

I thought we were already at 15 spots....does that mean we are cutting someone to sign him?

I hear he's a pretty good defender.

Hoping we cut Leslie to make room for Blakely.

^ That 22/13 was in the Philippine league, not the NBA. Still, he'll give us some youth guarding the perimeter and he can finish at the rim...

He was pretty good when he played in our 2010 SL team, I'm watching his highlights right now actually! Goo bball IQ!

Along with Courtney Fortson, he's also a non-guaranteed contract. From what I've seen:

  • Dunks

  • Clean the glass

  • Can shoot the 3

  • Can block shots

Haven't seen his special ability yet.

Yup, just more practice bodies. The roster's set unless there a injury in the pre-season.

When he's a 4rd string sf don't think he needs a special ability!

You just bring these guys in for training camp. Need people to scrimmage against without getting rest of team hurt. Don't read to much into this signing or the fortson signing.

Every basketball player has a special ability. Like Jamal Crawford and his 4-point plays; Blake Griffin and his Mozgovs; or Chris Paul and his clutch factor skyrocketing in the fourth quarter which helps the Clippers escape with a victory.

Calm down he is a garbage time type of player lol. Mozgov is at least a second string C.

Just a training camp invite.Unless someone really impresses then I don't think they will be on the team.A lot of teams have 18 or more players signed right now and will cut 3 or 4 guys before the season starts.I wouldn't read too much into this.

Believe me when I say this.. Marqus Blakely is a beast! I'm from Vermont and have seen him first hand at many UVM games. My cousin even went to school with him.. He's nearly 6'6" but with his intensity, physicality, and leaping/dunking ability; he plays like he is 6'9". With full trust in saying this... The Clippers will not be disappointed with signing him.

He looks good out there but I like his frame. He seems a natural for that SF spot and if he can become an elite shooter I can see him with our team in the future. As long as he doesnt develop into a one dimensional no D playing/bonheaded move making guy like Al Thornton

He didn't impress much in scrimmage, but I liked Bledsoe, Griffin, and Leslie, he was putting on a show!
