NBA: Los Angeles Clippers Sign Kelenna Azubuike to Offer Sheet

K ShakranSenior Analyst IJuly 17, 2008

The Los Angeles Clippers announced today that the team has signed restricted free agent and Golden State Warriors' guard, Kelenna Azubuike, to a multi-year agreement offer sheet.

Chris Mullin and the gang have seven days to match the offer once a copy of the original offer sheet is received. 

Azubuike averaged 8.5 points and 4.0 rebounds per game for the Warriors last season, his first full year in the NBA. The Warriors brought him to the NBA during the 2006-07 season, signing him out of the NBA Development League where he played for the Fort Worth team.

The Dubs have a chance to think about a potential Keyon Dooling if they decide not to match the offer the Clippers have thrown on the table—which is unlikley to transpire.

Azubuike might have been the only Warriors' bench player who portrayed consistent numbers last season.

Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy told, "Kelenna is a guy who's worked his way up. He's very athletic, he's a good shooter, a good defender and a good all-around kid."

Baron Davis, again, continues to have his "departure trend" carry over to the youngsters on the Warriors' roster—especially that 'Buke might be heading to the same team as Davis.
