LA Clippers Signed Ronny Turiaf to 1-Year Contract

Free agent big man Ronny Turiaf has landed in Los Angeles, agreeing to a 1-year deal with the Clippers. Reports the LA Times: “The Clippers and free-agent Ronny Turiaf have agreed to a one-year, veteran’s minimum contract worth $1.146 million, said NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. Turiaf, a 6-10, 245-pounder, will be a backup power forward and center for the Clippers. He becomes the fifth big man for the Clippers – behind starters DeAndre Jordan, Blake Griffin and reserves Lamar Odom and Ryan Hollins – the 13th player on the roster.”

    Wherever there’s exciting basketball to be played, this guy always ends up there. He’ll have plenty of reason to go bananas on the Clipper bench

    I like Turiaf. His energy and enthusiasm are obvious. You can tell that he truly appreciates every moment of his NBA career.

    Why would the clips let evans walk and then sign turiaf? Evans and martin were the reasons they survived that first playoff round

    Glorified cheerleader.

    Turiaf might not have contributed much during the games he played. But, this dude was always the first off the bench to cheer or high five a player. Which is one of the great things to watch in games.

  • woodylove

    he plays much smaller than he is…he’s 6’10″…has he ever blocked a shot?

  • Quan

    Turiaf is quite athletic, and definitely wants to play every night. He will come back if Miami has a spot for him. He will help Clippers.

  • Rob
