Hudson has not seen playing time this postseason.

Chris Paul, Jamal Crawford, and Austin Rivers are all ahead of him for minutes at point guard, and it's unlikely he will play a role going forward.

Hudson will sign with the Clippers on Saturday, the Orange County Register reports.

Hudson wasn't expected to receive a new contract after his previous 10-day deal expired. However, the Clippers will keep him on for the final week of the season. In three appearances with the team, he's averaged 2.3 points (on 25 percent shooting), two rebounds, 1.7 steals, and 0.7 assists in 11 minutes.

Hudson's 10-day contract with the Clippers has expired and he's not expected to get a second offer, Robert Morales of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Hudson saw 34 minutes on the court during his short stint in Los Angeles but apparently wasn't able to make a good enough impression on coach and general manager Doc Rivers. The 30-year-old will be eligible to sign elsewhere but the regular season is almost over and he'll likely head into next season without a team.

Hudson will sign a 10-day contract with the Clippers, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register reports.

Hudston, a big-time scorer in college, is yet to find a permanent home in the NBA. He's spent time with the Celtics, Grizzlies, Wizards and Cavaliers since entering the league in 2008, but he's appeared in only 52 career games. Hudson was previously playing overseas in China. The signing all but guarantees Nate Robinson will not be signed for the rest of the season, and it's likely an indication that Jamal Crawford (calf) is not overly close to returning to the court.

After receiving the award for Most Valuable Player of the Chinese Basketball Association, Lester Hudson is looking to return to the NBA, and has scheduled mini-camp workouts with NBA teams.

Hudson averaged 26 points, 7.8 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game while leading Xinjiang of China to the championship game. Last year, Hudson played for the Los Angeles Lakers summer league team, and was an invite to the Utah Jazz's training camp. Over the next month Hudson will workout for various NBA teams, and the Pacers have been reported as intrigued suitors. But for now, nothing is imminent.

Lester Hudson has received inquiries from the Knicks, Grizzlies, and Clippers about his availability.

Hudson has been playing with Xinjiang of the Chinese Basketball Association and helped lead the team to the second-best record in the league with averages of 26 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 5.0 assists. Xinjian's regular season ended February 16th, but Hudson won't be available to NBA teams until the CBA's playoffs are over. He won't serve as much more than bench depth for whoever he signs with, however, so fantasy owners can feel free to turn their attention elsewhere.

Lester Hudson inked a one-year deal with Xinjiang of the Chinese League.

Hudson played in China last year and hasn't seen any regular season NBA action since splitting time between Cleveland and Memphis in the 2011-12 season. Early in the preseason it appeared he had a shot to make the Jazz roster before he was derailed by an ankle injury.

Jazz waive G Lester Hudson.

He had some flashes this month with a couple hot scoring quarters, but he simply can't play point guard. The addition of Jamaal Tinsley spelled trouble for the former Cavalier and he'll likely have a tough time making a team out of the gate.

Coach Ty Corbin said he is still evaluating his point guard position.

He said he's still trying to figure out if Lester Hudson or Scott Machado can run the point, but it sounds like John Lucas III is out of the running. Hudson probably has the inside track, but his deficiencies as a passer could be his undoing. Tonight's game vs. the Lakers could be telling. This is hands-off territory in standard leagues for now.

Lester Hudson played 27 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday and had nine points, four boards, one assist, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

He played down the stretch for the team in a close game, which is a bit telling since coach Ty Corbin went with most of his starters. Hudson played solid D and brought the ball up some of the time along with Alec Burks and Gordon Hayward. Burks and Hayward will likely continue to do much of the ball handling during the season while Trey Burke (finger) is out, so even if Hudson wins the job, his upside won't be too high. He's still on the radar, though.
