“You’ve got to give (Paul) just some more support, you know?” Rivers told USA TODAY Sports. “I think bringing (his son) Austin (Rivers) here (in mid-January) helped us. We’ve got a 22-year-old (in Austin), and now to me we’ve got to get another guard who’s in the middle age group. So now you’re growing with Austin and CJ (Wilcox), and we need another defensive guy too.”
Wilcox, who starred for Pleasant Grove High School before going to play at the University of Washington for four years, has been on the Clippers’ inactive list for all but six games this year. He’s only played in three games, scoring nine points, all on 3-point shots, and has a couple of assists and a rebound. “Yeah it’s been frustrating but I expected it when they drafted me, looking down the line at who they had,’’ he said as he sat in the Clippers’ locker room before Monday night’s game. “I knew I had to come and stay in my lane and work hard and stay patient like I’ve always done, especially when you’re used to playing a lot and then not even playing at all and not even dressing all the time.’’
The Los Angeles Clippers announced today that they have signed first round draft pick C.J. Wilcox. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. Wilcox, the 28th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, was a Second-Team All-Pac-12 performer for the second-straight year during his final season at Washington. The 6-foot-5 inch Wilcox averaged 18.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 steals in 32 games as a senior for the Huskies, hitting 90 3-pointers, leading the Pac-12 in 3-pointers per game (2.8), good for 32nd nationally.
Interestingly, the two know each other. Wilcox played college ball at University of Washington, and Crawford is from Seattle. “He’s up in Seattle every summer, so he’s been in a lot of open gyms and a lot of runs. I’ve competed against him and been around guys who are really close with him, so I know we’ll probably be able to mesh a little bit since we’ve spent some summers together up in Seattle and going against each other. Hopefully, he’ll take me under his wing and show me the ropes since I went to school in Seattle and he’s from that area. … I think he’ll help me take some strides,” Wilcox said.
Following Sunday’s workout with the Utah Jazz, NBA hopeful Cleanthony Early admitted he’s been waiting to play at this level since he was shooting crumpled-up pieces of paper into a garbage can and cutting out the bottom of cardboard shoeboxes to make resourceful hoops as a kid. “It’s everyone’s dream,” the former Wichita State star said. For C.J. Wilcox, another participant, that dream began while he was growing up in Pleasant Grove. “It’s kind of cool to come back and be able to work with them, (the Jazz) growing up from here,” said Wilcox, who used to train with Jazz player development coach Johnnie Bryant. “You kind of imagine yourself being in this position.”
