The new look Los Angeles Clippers added yet another new face on Monday agreeing to terms with free agent swingman Ricky Davis according to a league source.

Davis, a 10-year veteran, played for the Miami HEAT last season averaging 13.8 points and 4.3 rebounds.

The Clippers have now acquired seven new players this summer, including two-time All-Star Baron Davis, two-time All-Defensive First Team member Marcus Camby and the seventh overall selection in the 2008 NBA Draft Eric Gordon.

Davis will likely compete for minutes with veteran Cuttino Mobley, Tim Thomas, Gordon and youngster Al Thornton.

I'm a Clipps fan and all but I don't know, Ricky D tends to be more of a distraction than an actual contributor the past few years. Hopefully the other guys can keep him in check and make him a valuable piece to our team.

I'm thinking he'll split minutes with Thornton at SF. Don't really know though but that's what makes the most sense on my mind.

Cuttino Mobley, Tim Thomas, Eric Gordon, Al Thornton.

there wasn't really a need for him, but I guess he can share minutes with Thornton at SF...

Eric Gordon won't make it in the NBA, it's a trend with undersized Gordons in the league. :(

Hey, no arguments there my friend, I too want Thornton to receive considerable playing time this season. Kid showed a lot of promise last season.

Nah, don't really see it cause we already have Mobley and Gordon at SG.

Next to Dwyane, Ricky was probably our most consistent player last year. He played all 82 games and gave %100 every night. We had a terrible season, but I don't believe Ricky had any negative effect on what was already a bad team.

but in the west thats about a 7-8seed team

the only thing he's famous for is intentionally missing a layup on the opposing team's basket to get a tripple double.....

well, solid addition for the clipps. after not being able to get azubuike from the warriors this is a good backup plan.

07-28-2008, 07:51 PM
great pick up he's a solid player for the clipers and will work well with baron. as for gordan, this is 1st year he will have a long career. the line up will be like this.

PG-Baron Davis
SG-Ricky Davis
SF-AL Thorntan
PF-Marcus Camby
C-Chris Kamen

Not Bad after losing Elton Brand and MAgette they get Ricky Davis, D.Diddy an Marcus Camby!!!!!!!!!

B.Davis
R.Davis/Eric Gordon
Mobley
Camby/Thorton
Kaman/DeAndre Jordan------Do you think they can make the playoffs in the WEST???????????????

07-28-2008, 08:08 PM
The Clipps are serious.. Look for them in the Playoffs this year..Ricky Davis helps more immediately than Azubuike would have: They now have depth at the 2 and 3..

Baron/ Hart/ E. Gordon
Ricky/ Mobley / E. Gordon
Thorton/ Ricky Davis/Tim Thomas
Camby/ Tim Thomas/Jordan
Kaman/ Josh Powell/ Camby

Thats a nice 8-9 man rotation right there

he can be a backup if one of the starter get hurt.

maybe the Clipps should consider trading Mobley or Tim Thomas now

VERY nice, the Clippers at worst add more depth to the bench. Seriously, who would've thought this off-season would be so amazing for Clipper fans? Granted, he's got issues/baggage, but still, the Clippers now can have a great bench that is ready to step up to contribute as starters if/when ppl go down. FEW teams, even ones that claim to be contenders, can say that.

Nice pick up...I wish we could have had him on the Mavs to catch lob Passes from Jason Kidd.

07-29-2008, 07:37 AM
Elton Brand+Corey Maggete vs Baron Davis+Marcus Camby+Ricky Davis.


hm, obviously Brand+Maggette is a much cleaner, surer, and better package, but B/R Davis and Camby aren't that shabby either.

Wow kind of a weird move, I guess the clippers really want to try and make a run at the playoffs, not to say Ricky Davis will help them in that quest. I have always seen him as doing more bad as a distraction than what he offers on the court. It a weird signing if you consider that Gordon and Thoronton are both young and need minutes, why bring in a guy like this who is gonna eat minutes from your young player.. ohh whatever its not my mess to deal with..

He's always overpaid...

The dude is so damn cocky but he's not that great...

I will say he can dunk and shoot the three (not as good as Redd/Allen/Kapono)

I just think he overrates himself...

I think he's just a dark cloud moving from city to city... He brings garbage and filth to every team he joins...

Every morning when Kobe wakes up, he takes a Ricky Davis.
