Clippers end up with 56th pick, tab Branden Dawson

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Clippers began the day without a pick in the NBA draft, but they got one anyway. They paid the New Orleans Pelicans for the 56th pick, then selected Michigan State forward Branden Dawson late Thursday night.

"One of the things we had talked about for some time was looking to buy in to the second round because we didn't have a pick in this draft," general manager Dave Wohl said. "We focused on a couple of guys, and Dawson was still there in the second round. He was one of the guys we really loved, so we were able to do a deal with New Orleans and buy their pick and draft him."

The Clippers, who were bounced from the Western Conference semifinals by the Houston Rockets in seven games after leading the series 3-1, think they have added a significant piece to the puzzle.
