Dawson, a 6-foot-6 guard/forward from
The Clippers were the only
The Clippers said that they had been watching Dawson all year, and Clippers General Manager Dave Wohl said he likes his mentality.
"The biggest thing is his toughness, he's a winner," Wohl said. "He's not a guy you kind of just lock into a position. I think he can play a couple of different positions, he can defend a number of positions. When you watch him play a lot, I think one of the things he does is he makes multiple-effort, game-defining plays a lot of times -- he'll get his hand on a loose ball, he'll save a loose ball, he'll dive on a loose ball, he'll go over to bigger players and grab a rebound. He's a little raw offensively, but we love the competitiveness and the toughness about him."
