Travis Leslie assigned to D-League

The Los Angeles Clippers assigned rookie guard Travis Leslie to the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Development League, the team announced Friday.

Leslie, who was the 47th overall selection in the 2011 NBA Draft, has averaged 1.5 points and 1.0 rebounds in eight games played this season.

The Clippers signed veteran swingman Bobby Simmons to a 10-day contract on Monday to bring the team's roster to 15 players. Simmons scored 13 points off the bench for the team Thursday night and seems likely to be kept on for the remainder of the season.
