NBA outfit, Los Angeles Clippers has added to their roster 27-year old Nigerian power forward Ekpe Udoh.
The deal is for one year. Meanwhile, he has played for the last two seasons at Milwaukee Bucks (NBA).
In 2010, Udoh was drafted by Golden State Warriors (NBA). The former Baylor University standout is in his fifth season in pro basketball.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Udoh’s team was regular season runner-up in Big 12 in 2010. He was also voted All-Big 12 Newcomer of the Year back in 2010 at his college time.Udoh has played also professionally in Israel (Bnei Hasharon).
The scouts described him as: “A very athletic inside operator, with great leaping ability and long arms. Has good timing for shot-blocking and defensive rebounds, needs to improve his defensive skills to play at upper level. Offensively, he worked hard to add a decent mid-range shot, but he hasn’t got a 3pts range yet”.
