Charania: Clippers to Sign Alex Stepheson to 10-Day Contract

The Clippers are continuing tryouts for a third-string big man.

In Blake Griffin's absence, and in the aftermath of Josh Smith being traded away from the team, the Clippers signed Jeff Ayres to a pair of 10-day contracts.  Rather than opting to keep Ayres for the rest of the season, the Clippers will now turn to D-League rebound leader Alex Stepheson.

Stepheson is a 28-year-old Los Angeles Native who has played 31 games with the Iowa Energy this season, averaging 16 points and 14 rebounds in 34 minutes a game.  He probably won't see much time for the Clippers, but if he brings tenacity defensively and on the glass, he might stick with the team for the remainder of the year.
