Following participation in training camp and the Clippers' first pre-season game last night, Mustapha Farrakhan and JaMychal Green were cut by the Clippers today. I suspect that they were only ever signed so that the Clippers could laugh as I attempted to spell their names.
Green was 0-1 with 3 rebounds in 5 minutes last night. Farrakhan played 7 minutes and failed to register any stats besides 0-2 shooting, including one ugly airball that prompted jeers from the Portland crowd.
I don't want to seem harsh, but these two guys never had a chance to make the team. They knew it coming in. It was more a matter of experience for them as they will now likely head either to the D-League or overseas. And they get a nice little check for their week with the team.
Now, the Clippers are down to Maalik Wayns, Lou Amundson, and Brandon Davies on non-guaranteed contracts.
