Arash Markazi: The Clippers wanted to re-sign Nate Robinson but the bone bruise in his left knee isn't fully healed and they don't have much time to wait. If Nate Robinson was healthy and ready to play today he would have been signed but he's not so they went to Plan B, which was Lester Hudson. Twitter @ArashMarkazi

In December of that season while the Celtics were in Chicago to play the Bulls, Hudson received a directive from Garnett. It wasn’t the first time Garnett made a request – as a rookie, Hudson often ran errands for him and other veterans. This one was vague, though. “‘Train, come to the store with me,’” Hudson recalled. “‘Meet me downstairs at this time.’ You can’t be late with KG. I was probably 10 minutes early. He was like, ‘Come on let’s go.’” Basketball Insiders

Hudson left the team hotel with Garnett, not knowing where they were headed. As they walked down the street, Garnett filled the conversation with more words of encouragement. The talk ended as they approached the destination. Hudson gazed upon the building: the Louis Vuitton store. “He told me to pick out whatever I wanted,” said Hudson. “I was like, ‘Are you serious right now?’ He said, ‘You work hard and I respect you. You help me out a lot.’” Basketball Insiders

After a 111-110 loss to Stephon Marbury and the Beijing Ducks, Lester Hudson vented his rage on anything he could find, including a reporter’s camera phone. After a crazy final minute that saw Marbury score six consecutive points for the Ducks to steal the win, Hudson thought he fouled Randolph Morris to stop the clock before the buzzer sounded. The refs though otherwise and decided to call the game. Basketball Buddha

For example, the Cavaliers signed Lester Hudson to two 10-day contracts in 2012, and the guard performed spectacularly. He scored at least 23 points in three consecutive games, and hit two last-second shots. The Cavaliers wanted to sign him to a contract that included non-guaranteed money for the second year, however, and Hudson balked. He found a better deal with the Memphis Grizzlies, and promptly signed with them. General managers have gone from playing chess to checkers, as one NBA source explained, because they now have to think several steps ahead even with short-term, non-guaranteed deals. If a team signs a player whose rights they don't own, is there a possibility he plays so well that he prices himself out of its market? Cleveland Plain Dealer
