Clippers Sign Free Agent Richie Frahm

Dec. 14, 2007

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Clippers on Friday signed Richie Frahm, a free-agent guard from Gonzaga University who was released by the Phoenix Suns during the preseason.

Frahm, a 30-year-old 3-point specialist, has averaged 3.5 points, 1.2 rebounds and 0.6 assists in 130 career games with Houston, Minnesota, Portland and Seattle. He played for Italy's Benetton Treviso in 2006-07 after averaging 3.4 points in 32 games for Minnesota and Houston the previous season.

Frahm, a 6-foot-5, 202-pounder, was undrafted after averaging 12.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.9 assists in four seasons (1997-00) at Gonzaga. He was a college teammate of Clippers guard Dan Dickau during the 1999-2000 season, Dickau's redshirt season at Gonzaga following his transfer from the University of Washington.

Frahm helped the Zags to the 1999 NCAA Tournament Elite Eight and the 2000 NCAA Sweet Sixteen. He is eighth on the all-time Gonzaga scoring list with 1,621 points, and second in career 3-pointers made (280) and attempts (662).

There will be three former Zags on the court when the Clippers and the Los Angeles Lakers do battle Sunday at The Staples Center. In addition to Frahm and Dickau in uniforms for the Clippers, Ronny Turiaf will be in the Lakers uniform. Turiaf is in his third season with the Lakers after being the 37th pick overall of the 2005 NBA Draft. He underwent heart surgery in the fall of 2005 and returned to play for the Lakers.
