LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Clippers have signed draft picks Al-Farouq Aminu of Wake Forest and Eric Bledsoe of Kentucky.

The signings were announced Saturday.

Aminu, a forward, was the eighth overall pick in last month's NBA draft. Bledsoe, a guard, was the 18th pick whom the Clippers acquired in a draft day trade after he was originally chosen by Oklahoma City.

Aminu left Wake Forest after averaging 15.8 points, 10.7 rebounds and 4.4 blocks in his sophomore season.

Bledsoe averaged 11.3 points, 2.9 assists and 3.1 rebounds as a freshman at Kentucky.

The rookies' signings ended a busy week for the Clippers, who also signed free agents Brian Cook, Randy Foye and Ryan Gomes.
