By Arash Markazi
LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Clippers signed forward DaJuan Summers to a 10-day contract, the team announced Friday.
Summers averaged 18.0 points and 7.6 rebounds in 33.1 minutes of action for the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League this season over 29 games, including 16 starts.
The 6-foot-8 forward from Georgetown was the 35th overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft. He appeared in 81 games, including seven starts, for the Detroit Pistons and New Orleans Hornets from 2009-2012. He has career averages of 3.4 points and 1.0 rebound in 10.0 minutes of action.
The Clippers made room on the roster for Summer by waiving forward Trey Thompkins on Thursday. After signing guard Maalik Wayns to a 10-day contract last week, the Clippers roster now stands at 15, including two former D-League players on 10-day contracts.
