  • Grizzlies' Daniel Oturu: Traded to Memphis

    Oturu was was traded to the Grizzlies on Sunday, along with Rajon Rondo and Patrick Beverley, in exchange for Eric Bledsoe, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The 2020 second-round pick didn't make much of an impact as a rookie, appearing in just 30 games and logging double-digit minutes only five times. He may have a difficult time finding a larger role in Memphis, where he'll compete for minutes with a loaded big man rotation that already features Steven Adams, Jaren Jackson, Brandon Clarke, Xavier Tillman, and Killian Tillie. Oturu took the court for the Clippers' Summer League team Sunday, but given the transaction he'll likely be shelved for the remainder of play in Las Vegas.

  • Clippers' Daniel Oturu: Double-doubles in loss

    Oturu recorded 13 points (5-21 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block across 37 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss to the Thunder.

    The rookie second-round pick hasn't been part of head coach Tyronn Lue's rotation this season, but he received a hefty dose of playing time in the season finale with the Clippers resting most of their regulars. He showed a few glimpses of his potential, but Oturu also showed just how raw he is -- he made just five of his 21 shots. He's not expected to be part of the Clippers' rotation come playoff time.

  • Clippers' Daniel Oturu: Makes return from quad injury

    Oturu (quadriceps) has been active for the Clippers' last two games, making a 12-minute appearance in Sunday's win over the Pelicans before going unused in Monday's win over the Mavericks.

    The rookie second-round pick hasn't been part of head coach Tyronn Lue's rotation this season. He was expected to pick up extended run at the G League bubble in Orlando, but Oturu didn't end up in appearing in any games for the Agua Caliente Clippers, as he was sent back to Los Angeles in early February after straining his quad in practice. He looks to be healthy coming out of the All-Star break, but he'll likely struggle to find playing time while the Clippers are close to full strength in the frontcourt. Oturu only picked up 12 minutes against the Pelicans because the Clippers were leading comfortably heading into the fourth quarter of an eventual 135-115 win.

  • Clippers' Daniel Oturu: Dealing with quad injury

    Otoru suffered a quad strain in a recent practice and is currently sidelined, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.

    Otoru is under the care of the team outside of the G League bubble due to his quad strain. The 21-year-old has appeared in 10 games for the Clippers so far this season in limited fashion. Oturu has yet to score more than four points or play more than 12 minutes in any of those outings.
