The Los Angeles Clippers have landed a couple of guards to help them keep pace in the competitive Western Conference. Per the Los Angeles Times, free agents Jamal Crawford and Chauncey Billups both have agreed to sign with the Clippers.
Crawford reportedly will sign a three-year, $15.7 million contract, and Billups will re-sign with the Clippers for a one-year deal valued at $4.3 million, granted he reaches bonuses.
Billups was acquired via waivers by the Clippers after being anmestied by the Knicks. Billups averaged 15.0 ppg, 4 apg and shot .384 from three-point range before an Achilles injury ended his season after only 20 games.
Crawford played last season with the Trail Blazers, averaging 14 ppg and leading the NBA in free-throw percentage at .927 before opting out of his deal to become a free agent. Crawford will replace Nick Young as a source of immediate offense off the bench for L.A, and will most likely start until Billups is able to return from his injury.
