Clippers coach Doc Rivers confirmed he will sign small forward Dahntay Jones to a 10-day contract over small forward Darius Miller, per the team's official website. Rivers noted that Miller could be an option in the future "when he gets in better shape." The Clippers officially announced the signing Wednesday. Jones averaged 3.4 points on 36.9 percent shooting in his last NBA action during the 2012-13 season.
The Clippers will sign small forward Dahntay Jones to a 10-day contract rather than small forward Darius Miller, Yahoo! Sports reports. Miller, who was waived by the Pelicans in November, was reported to be in line for the 10-day deal with the Clippers. However, it appears the team will move forward with Jones, who was waived by the Jazz before the season. He averaged 3.4 points on 36.9 percent shooting in his last NBA action during the 2012-13 season.
The Clippers are on the verge of signing forward Darius Miller to a 10-day contract, reports Yahoo Sports. Miller was waived by the Pelicans in November. He played in five games this season and scored two points.
The Pelicans waived forwards Darius Miller and Patric Young Sunday. Miller played just 43 minutes over five appearances this season, scoring two points on 1 of 7 shooting. Young didn't see any regular-season action with the Pelicans after signing as an undrafted free agent during the offseason.
The Pelicans are likely to start Darius Miller at small forward Tuesday against the Kings, according to NOLA.com. This move will also push Tyreke Evans over to shooting guard to replace Eric Gordon, who is out indefinitely with a torn labrum. Miller has made four appearances this season, averaging 0.5 points per game. Evans is averaging 15.0 points, 6.3 assists and 6.2 rebounds per game.
