Warren Fits In With the Clippers

Former Sooner guard Willie Warren was drafted by the Los Angeles Clippers with the 54th overall pick, and Sooners Illustrated provides a couple major reasons why it will be a good fit for him.

Two reasons the Clippers will be a good fit for Warren:

1. Warren could hugely complement Eric Gordon in the scoring column at some point—The Clippers will gain another guard that can find all kinds of ways to score in Warren, something that will make Gordon even more dangerous. Gordon averaged 16.9 points per game during the 2009-10 season, and Warren's presence could not only give Gordon more opportunities to score, but provide another perimeter scoring threat.

2. He will be reunited with Blake GriffinWho would have seen this possibility more than a year ago when Warren was contemplating foregoing the rest of his years at OU to enter the NBA Draft at the same time as Griffin? But it turned out to be the case after Warren elected to remain at OU for another season, while Griffin left and was selected as the No. 1 overall pick. When Warren gets on the court alongside Griffin, their chemistry will really help the Clippers.
