That was quick. Within minutes of the draft ending, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports announced that the Clippers signed Seton Hall center Angel Delgado to a two-way contract.
Delgado was a four year player at Seton Hall, and one of the oldest players in the draft at 23.5 years of age. He’s a big man at 6’10” and 245 pounds, and is firmly a center at the NBA level. Delgado started all four years at Seton Hall, and was one of the best rebounders in the NCAA over his last two, averaging 12.5 boards (including 4.5 offensive) over his junior and senior years. Delgado isn’t much a shot blocker for a big man, averaging just 0.8 for his college career, but is able to make some plays, as he dished out 2.8 assists his senior year.
With DeAndre Jordan and Montrezl Harrell’s future with the Clippers up in the air, it’s quite possible that Delgado sees real minutes for the Clippers next year as their 3rd string center. If the Clippers’ veterans return, Delgado will assuredly carve out a spot in Ontario. His age and lack of top athleticism means he doesn’t have much upside, but he should be able to rebound and score in the post (and with a nice midrange jumper) from the get-go in the NBA. Be sure to check out this nice article detailing his post from fellow SB Blog East Coast Bias. Welcome to the Clippers Angel!
