As expected, the Los Angeles Clippers re-signed Bobby Simmons today for the remainder of the season. Simmons should be in uniform for today's game with the Grizzlies.

Although Simmons shot only 31% during the 13 games he played on back-to-back 10 day contracts in February and March, sadly he was frequently shooting better than the starting small forward, Caron Butler. And Simmons did make 13 of 35 threes in his time with the team.

This is strictly a move to add additional depth at a problem position. But the Clippers desperately need for a small forward (really, any small forward) to rise above the level of "mediocre" over the final five weeks of the season. It turns out that three bad small forwards do not add up to one decent one. Simmons could see crunch time minutes down the stretch this season -- which is a pretty sad state of affairs when you consider that the Clippers 'big' free agency signings of each of the last two seasons were small forwards who are still on the roster (and will be next season as well).
