Clippers sign Brandon Davies

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Clippers have signed rookie forward Brandon Davies, the team announced Thursday.

"We really liked Brandon in Summer League," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said in a statement. "We like his ability to play multiple positions and he fits with our team. He understands team basketball and has been in here all summer working on his game."

Davies was a member of the Clippers' summer league team in Las Vegas, averaging 5.8 points and 4.0 rebounds in 15.8 minutes over five games. He was undrafted out of BYU.

The forward averaged 12.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 24.1 minutes during his four-year career for the Cougars.

Davies gained notoriety in 2011 when BYU suspended him for violating the school's honor code while the Cougars were ranked No. 3 nationally. Davies missed the rest of the season, but returned for two more years at the Mormon church-owned school.
