NEW ORLEANS -- After the Clippers signed free-agent forward Glen Davis to a contract Monday, Coach Doc Rivers said they will continue “tracking” players whose contracts get bought out to see if they can add another player.

Davis was with the team here, but didn’t play because he won’t take his physical until Tuesday in Los Angeles. The team hopes he can play Wednesday night against the Houston Rockets at Staples Center.

The Clippers have a 13-man roster, giving them room to sign two more players if they desire.

There have been reports that small forward Danny Granger may get a buyout from the Philadelphia 76ers. If he does, Granger would be high on the Clippers’ list of possible acquisitions, according to NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.


Granger was traded to the 76ers last Thursday from the Indiana Pacers.

“I don’t know if we’re going to use another [roster spot] or not, but we’re tracking the market,” Rivers said. “It just keeps changing, really. It seems like every day more and more guys are getting bought out, probably even more than I thought would happen.

“If we can improve our team, we would like to.”
