Willie Green Dealt To Clippers In Sign And Trade

The Los Angeles Clippers have acquired backup guard Willie Green from the Atlanta Hawks in a sign and trade arrangement, the team announced on Monday. The Hawks will receive the right to center Sofoklis Schortsanitis in the deal, though it's unlikely that he'll ever suit up for the team.

Green averaged 7.6 points per game in 17.4 minutes per game for the Hawks last year, shooting a career-high 47 percent from 3-point range. The veteran guard has made a living as a scoring threat off the bench for several teams in his nine-year career. After spending the first seven years of his career playing for the Philadelphia 76ers, he spent one year with the New Orleans Hornets before heading to the Hawks last season.

The Clippers were able to make this move using one of their many small trade exceptions. It's unclear which one, though, because we don't yet know Green's salary.
