LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Clippers will sign guard Nate Robinson to a second 10-day contract and forward Jordan Hamilton for the rest of the season, multiple sources told ESPN.com.

Robinson was signed to a 10-day contract on March 7 to help the second unit ease the loss of Jamal Crawford, who is out indefinitely with a right calf contusion. Crawford will miss at least the next 10 days before he is able to return to practice, which made the decision to extend Robinson an easy one for now. Robinson's status on the team for the rest of the season has not yet been determined.

Hamilton, however, was able to secure a spot on the team for the rest of the season, despite spraining his right ankle in Sunday's loss to the Houston Rockets. He had to be helped off the court in the third quarter and did not return to the game, but X-rays on his ankle came back negative. He is officially listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Charlotte Hornets.

Robinson is averaging 4.0 points, 2.0 assists and 1.4 rebounds in five games for the Clippers. Hamilton is averaging 4.6 points and 1.6 rebounds in eight games for the Clippers this month, but the past two games, he has combined for 19 points and has hit five of seven 3-pointers.

Good aggressive player ... I like him; he needs more minutes over Baby Doc, who takes up valuable minutes.

I haven't seen much for Nate, but he has been out for a very long time.
I think Nate hasn't really been the same since his ACL injury. I heard that he's not necessarily the best locker room presence, but I did meet him before when he was playing in Denver, and he seemed cool so I don't know how much truth there is to that.

I remember Nate mostly from Chicago and NY (I think) when he had good minutes during playoffs.

He hasn't looked good with the Clippers, seems to be too short. Although, he is coming off an injury. Sure can't say much for Doc as a GM. His son brings nothing and now Nate. But I do like Jordan (before this injury) ... time will tell.
