Clippers sign Lester Hudson
The Los Angeles Clippers have signed guard Lester Hudson to a 10-day contract, the team announced on Sunday. Hudson is a 30-year-old guard, 6’3″, 190 pounds, who was drafted 58th overall out of  Tennessee-Martin in 2009 by the Boston Celtics. Hudson is coming off a dominant run in the Chinese Basketball Association, where he has been an All-Star for the last three seasons and an MVP the last two seasons. Hudson played for the Liaoning Flying Leopards this past season, averaging 30.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 6.7 assists per game during the regular season. He increased those numbers to 32.8 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 7.6 assists per game in the playoffs. Hudson’s team lost to Stephon Marbury’s Beijing Ducks 4-2 in the CBA championship series that concluded last week. Hudson becomes the fourth player to join the Clippers after playing for Doc Rivers in Boston, after Ryan Hollins, Glen Davis, and Nate Robinson. Hudson takes the 15th spot on the roster that was vacated by Robinson, who missed Wednesday’s game at New York with soreness in his surgically-repaired left knee. Robinson’s second 10-day contract expired Friday, and he was not listed on the roster for Friday’s game in Philadelphia. Robinson averaged 5.1 points per game on 33 percent shooting from the field in nine games with the Clippers. While Hudson’s overall NBA experience has been modest as a member of the Celtics, Grizzlies, Wizards, and Cavaliers (52 games played, no starts, 4.8 points per game, 37 percent shooting from the field, 26 percent from three), he has had his moments. Hudson signed the first of two 10-day contracts with the Cavaliers on March 30, 2012 – almost exactly three years ago. Hudson averaged 12.7 points per game on 39 percent shooting from the field in 13 games off the bench. His high point was a 26-point performance against the Nets. Hudson hasn’t played in the NBA since April 2012. He was rumored to have been on the Clippers radar last season, so it isn’t a complete surprise that he got a flyer this time around. He is expected to be available for the Clippers game at Boston on Sunday. RSS

3-on-3: Los Angeles Clippers vs. Boston Celtics
Los Angeles Clippers (48-25) vs. Boston Celtics (32-40) TD Garden 3:00 p.m. PST March 29, 2014 FOX Prime Ticket Video of the Day Shades of Reggie Evans against Chris Kaman.   1. What are the chances the Celtics make the playoffs? Michael Pina, (@michaelvpina): Well, heading into tonight’s game, John Hollinger’s Playoff Odds only give the Celtics a 31.9% chance of making it. But if the season ended today, they’d face the Atlanta Hawks in the first round. So, my totally scientific answer is their chances of qualifying are currently no better than a coin flip. Patrick James, (@patrickmjames): 65 percent. Along with Miami, they’re the best coached team in the Eastern Conference’s playoff fringe. And they seem to be getting better as the year goes on. Plus they have the luck of the Irish. Law Murray, (@LawMurrayTheNU): 100%. I thought they would be the 8th seed when the season started, and that’s the spot they are in now with ten games remaining. Today’s game will be their last against a Western Conference team, and they are going to have to play like a playoff team to get in – as of now, their remaining schedule is full of teams fighting for playoff positioning. But Boston is playing better than Brooklyn, Indiana, Charlotte, and Indiana over the last ten games. 2. What is Evan Turner? Pina: Evan Turner is Boston’s lead ball-handler, a guy who can get where he wants on the floor, draw defensive attention and create open looks for his teammates. Turner is not an efficient player, and likely never will be, but he can get his own shot whenever he wants (usually something either at the rim or 15 feet from the basket) and is pretty good at knocking them down. Expectations will always be unfairly high because of where he was drafted (even though it was five years ago), but overall he’s been something of a pleasant surprise for the Celtics. James: Evan Turner is an enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in a new-found illusion of productivity. He’s averaging 12.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per 36 minutes for Boston and I just don’t know what to make of it. The only thing I’m sure of is that I’m unsure. Murray: You can call him an enigma. Turner is one of 11 players in the NBA this season to average at least five rebounds and five assists per game. He’s an average athlete, relatively speaking, and he doesn’t shoot well enough from anywhere to be relied upon as a primary scorer. He’s also gotten a bad rap from his stories from Ohio State, Philadelphia, and Indiana. Turner can play, and he’s talented. You just don’t know if you’re getting a triple-double or a snoozer from him, so he can be a bit frustrating in that regard. 3. Who’s the better coach: Brad Stevens or Doc Rivers? Pina: This question is impossible to answer for so many different reasons. Doc Rivers’ expectations this season were, at the very least, to make the NBA Finals, while Stevens’ were to steer a catastrophic roster towards the lottery. If the two flipped positions would the Clippers still be such a cantankerous squad? Would the Celtics have more than 25 wins? Who knows, though its safe to say Boston’s overachieved far more than Los Angeles. James: It’s Doc. That could change over time, but being clever, creative, and getting pleasant surprises out of a odd young roster isn’t the same thing as leading perennially elite teams. I love what Stevens is doing, but let’s give him time to earn that kind of praise. Murray: Doc Rivers. Crown Brad Stevens if you want to. I’ll wait until he brings the Celtics back into the top of the Atlantic Division and stops having all of his bad shooters hoist threes instead of getting to the free throw line. No excuses if this team misses the playoffs. And for anyone who says that Stevens is “doing more with less”, check Rivers’ first season as an NBA head coach and get back to me.
