Big Sofo to play with the Clippers in Las Vegas

After seven years of speculation and anticipation, Sofoklis Schortsanitis will indeed make his Clippers’ debut in Las Vegas. From

First round draft selections Al-Farouq Aminu and Eric Bledsoe as well as 2010 second round selection Willie Warren will join third year player DeAndre Jordan to form the nucleus of the Los Angeles Clippers’ entry in the 2010 NBA Summer League, who open summer league play against the Washington Wizards entry on July 12th in Las Vegas.

Also joining the Clippers’ entry in Las Vegas is Greek forward Sofoklis Schortsanitis, the Clippers second round selection (34th overall) in the 2003 NBA Draft. Schortsanitis averaged 9.0 points and 3.4 rebounds in 31 Greek League games in 2009-10 for Olympiacos. Blake Griffin, the first overall selection in the 2009 NBA Draft, is expected to practice and be with the team on the bench during summer league games, however he will not play in any games.
