Clippers waive Trey Thompkins

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Clippers waived forward Trey Thompkins, the team announced Thursday.

Thompkins was the 37th overall selection of the 2011 NBA Draft by the Clippers out of Georgia, and averaged 2.4 points and 1.0 rebounds in 24 games during his rookie season. He did not appear in a game this season because of a left knee bone bruise.

"We want to thank Trey for his contribution to the Clippers,” Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro said. “Unfortunately, he was never able to truly showcase his talents this season due to injuries. We wish him all the best and believe he has a bright future."

The Clippers roster currently stands at 14.
