Clippers sign guard Goldwire
A seven-year NBA veteran, Goldwire played 33 games with Detroit and Milwaukee last season, averaging 5.2 points and 2.4 assists.
The signing of Goldwire comes on the heels of the Clippers receiving some more disappointing news regarding second-year guard Shaun Livingston. A tall, promising point guard with a somewhat frail physique, Livingston has been sidelined with a sore lower back since the beginning of training camp.
On Monday, Livingston is scheduled to undergo further tests with back specialist Dr. William Dillin to determine the extent of the injury.
The 6-foot-2 Goldwire, who has averaged 6.3 points and 2.8 assists over his career, most likely will compete with rookie Daniel Ewing for a reserve role behind starter Sam Cassell as long as Livingston is out.
Hunter appeared in five preseason games, averaging 1.2 points and 1.4 rebounds in limited action.
Selected by Boston in the second round of the 2003 draft, Hunter was picked in the expansion draft by the Charlotte Bobcats the following year and traded to Orlando at the start of the 2004-05 season.
In two seasons, Hunter, from Ohio University, has appeared in 67 games, averaging 3.3 points and 2.8 rebounds.
