Looks like the Los Angeles Clippers are serious about the prospects of adding former BYU star Brandon Davies to their roster.
Davies, who went undrafted in last week's NBA Draft, has signed a free-agent deal with the Clippers.
It isn't just a standard free-agent deal, however. Sean Deveney of The Sporting News reported via Twitter that Davies signed a "partially guaranteed" one-year contract with the Clips.
Davies was disappointed that he didn't get drafted, but this way his dream stays alive. If he doesn't make the Clippers' roster, expect him to head overseas.
Davies' career stats weren't great, but his senior season he averaged 17.7 points and 8.0 rebounds per game.
