Clippers to Sign Hedo Turkoglu and Chris Douglas-Roberts

The LA Clippers will reportedly bring back veteran forward Hedo Turkoglu, while also inking free agent Chris Douglas-Roberts.

The Clips made room for Turkoglu’s minimum deal last week by waiving Carlos Delfino and Miroslav Raduljica. Per the OC Register:

After missing almost an entire season because of injuries and a suspension for performance-enhancing substance, Turkoglu, 35, impressed Doc Rivers with his versatility. The Clippers used Turkoglu at both forward spots off the bench and relied on his ball handling on offense. […] He averaged 3.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 10.3 minutes per game with the Clippers.


The Clippers can only sign Turkoglu to a one-year, veteran’s minimum contract, which will be slightly less than $1.45 million for a player with his service time.


The team is also close to an agreement with free-agent Chris Douglas-Roberts. […] Douglas-Roberts, a 6-foot-7 wing player, spent last season with Charlotte, averaging 6.9 points in 49 games. In four playoff games against Miami, Douglas-Roberts averaged 9.5 points in 17.5 minutes per game. Douglas-Roberts would make $1.06 million on a one-year, veteran’s minimum deal.
