We all know the free agent bonanza didn’t work out like we here in Clipperland were hoping, with LBJ/Wade/Bosh building a three-headed monster in South Beach, Carlos Boozer joining the Bulls and the Warriors acquiring David Lee in a trade.
But the Clippers were active today, signing Randy Foye and Ryan Gomes, most recently from the Wizards and Timberwolves, respectively.
From USA Today:
The deals were announced Thursday night, shortly after LeBron James said he was leaving Cleveland for the Miami Heat. The Clippers were among the teams that made a pitch to James.
Foye, who has played for four season, averaged 10.1 points, 3.3 assists and 1.9 rebounds in 70 games for the Washington Wizards last season.
Gomes, who has played for five seasons, averaged 10.9 points and 4.6 rebounds in 76 games for Minnesota last season. He was traded by Minnesota to Portland on draft day last month, and was waived by the Trail Blazers on June 29.
Terms of the deals weren’t announced.
Not exactly the thrilling moves we were hoping for in free agency but I’m reserving judgement until the weekend.
